DENVER – Broncos’ head coach Gary Kubiak will not coach in Thursday's game after experiencing a “complex migraine condition,” according to a statement made by team general manager John Elway in a press conference Monday afternoon. Special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis will coach the Broncos in Kubiak's absence. 

Kubiak was hospitalized after Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons with what the team called “flu-like symptoms” at the time. He was released from the hospital Monday afternoon. 

The Broncos say Kubiak went through “several precautionary tests,” including an MRI and CT scan, which the team says both came back normal.

The team says his migraine condition caused Kubiak extreme fatigue and body weakness. He was prescribed medication and “is feeling much better,” according to a statement.

Kubiak's health scare drew extra attention Sunday evening because he was hospitalized in November 2013 after he suffered a mini-stroke at halftime of a game while he was coaching the Houston Texans.

He missed several weeks while receiving treatment, and made lifestyle changes afterward to keep himself healthy.
