Gary Kubiak expected to be released from hospital on Monday

Broncos coach Gary Kubiak was taken to a hospital after Sunday’s game while experiencing flu-like symptoms and reports on Monday morning were positive about his condition after a night under the care of doctors.

The Broncos have added some details to back up that word. In a statement, the team said Kubiak, who had a mini-stroke while coaching the Texans in 2013, underwent an MRI and CT scan among other tests. Those tests came back normal and Kubiak is expected to be released from the hospital later on Monday.

“Kubiak was diagnosed with a complex migraine condition that caused extreme fatigue and body weakness,” the team’s statement said. “He received medication and is feeling much better with an expected release from the hospital this afternoon.”

There’s no word on when Kubiak might rejoin the Broncos, who have a game against the Chargers in San Diego on Thursday night. That will likely be sorted out now that Kubiak’s medical issue has been addressed in what appears to be a positive way.

    Glad to hear it wasn’t serious.

    Didn’t Kubiak have a stroke a few years back? At his age that is frightening stuff. Football is great but in the end it is just a game. Kubiak needs to take a look at whether the stress of being a head coach is worth potentially shortening his life.

    I can’t even imagine trying to coach an NFL game while having a migraine. I can’t even imagine walking to the refrigerator to get an ice pack while having a migraine. That’s just how intense migraine pain can get… brutal. I don’t care for the Broncos, but I do sympathize with anyone suffering from these vicious headaches.

    Yikes. Sounds painful. Does make you wonder about concussions he may have had during his playing days

    IMO he needs to get out of being a head coach. He isn’t built for it. Be an exec, a consultant, something else. He’s likely made enough cash by now not to need all the money a head coach makes.

    Why does having John Elway as a boss seem to lead to hospital stays?

    Hope he gets well quickly, he’s done such a great job since he took over.

    Should have ended it at “Hope he gets well quickly, heโ€™s done”.
