It's been a weird week for the Denver Broncos. Head coach Gary Kubiak was rushed to the hospital following last Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons, with what the team described as "flu-like symptoms" at the time.
Doctors diagnosed Kubiak with a complex migraine condition, which causes extreme weakness and fatigue. Considering his medical history with stress-related illness, it was a foreboding development.
GM John Elway addressed the media last Monday, saying that Kubiak would be given the week off and that special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis would serve as interim head coach.
Two days later, the Broncos traveled to take on the San Diego Chargers for Thursday Night Football and we all know what happened next. The Broncos turned in a disjointed performance replete with mental errors and an overall lack of focus.
In the midst of a two-game losing streak, the Broncos need their head coach. They get Kubiak back Monday. According to V.P. of Public Relations Patrick Smyth, the team will hold a 2:45 practice, after which Kubiak will address the media.
There are still some question marks surrounding Kubiak's prognosis that Elway would not elaborate on to protect his friend's privacy. We don't know how much Kubiak will share, but I imagine we'll learn a little bit more of what happened last week, as well as what we can expect moving forward.
