The Broncos’ loss to the Chargers on Thursday night left interim head coach Joe DeCamillis feeling sick to his stomach, but the task of fixing what’s ailed the Broncos in two straight losses will fall to the regular head coach now that he’s no longer feeling as sick as he did a week ago.
Gary Kubiak is expected back at work on Monday after taking last week off following his hospitalization last Sunday night. Kubiak was diagnosed with a complex migraine condition and spent time with doctors to come up with a plan to deal with it moving forward.
DeCamillis said Friday that he didn’t know whether the coach’s schedule will be altered once he’s back on the job.
“We haven’t really discussed that,” DeCamillis said, via ESPN.com. “That’s more of a question for [Kubiak] when he comes back. I did get to talk to him, which was great. He was so supportive all week. He was excellent for me. He was a great resource, but I’m glad he’s coming back, that’s for sure.”
Whatever his schedule, Kubiak will need to get the team’s offense back in gear after disappointing outings against both the Falcons and Chargers and figure out how to avoid slow starts for the defense that put the team in a hole each week.
