Denver Broncos Coach Gary Kubiak is expected to be released from the hospital Monday after experiencing “flu-like” symptoms following Sunday’s loss to Atlanta, the Broncos said in a news release.

The Broncos said Kubiak underwent a series of precautionary tests at the hospital, including an MRI and CT scan, both of which came back normal.

Kubiak, 55, was diagnosed with a complex migraine condition that caused extreme fatigue and body weakness, the team said.

“He received medication and is feeling much better with an expected release from the hospital this afternoon,” the release said. 


It is unclear whether Kubiak will be available to coach the Broncos in San Diego on Thursday night.

Three years ago, when he was coaching the Houston Texans, Kubiak collapsed when he was walking off the field at halftime of a game against Indianapolis. Doctors later determined he suffered a transient ischemic attack, often referred to as a “mini-stroke.”
