Gary Kubiak Says He 'Feels Good', Returns to Denver Broncos Practice

The longtime Bronco is back in the building.

It's been a tumultuous couple of weeks for the Denver Broncos--they're in the midst of a losing streak, they've had uncertainty at the quarterback position, and they had to head into battle without their leader last Thursday.

Today, however, as the Broncos get back in the rhythm of a semi-normal week of practice ahead of their Monday night game with the Houston Texans, order is beginning to be restored. Head Coach Gary Kubiak returned to the organization for the first time since being diagnosed with a complex migraine immediately after the loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Kubiak spoke about the state of his health after his return to the practice field.

"I got too much rest, unfortunately," Kubiak said. "I didn’t want it, but I got it. I feel very good. I spent some time going through some things with some doctors and I’m very encouraged. It made me feel really good. All of my tests came back great. All I can say is it’s good to be back to work. I really missed a few days there. It was really tough to watch and be away from. I’m glad to be back.” It's not hard to imagine Gary Kubiak, or really any coach, having a hard time watching their team on television rather than the sideline. It doesn't help matters when you play as badly as the Broncos did, either.

When questioned whether the recent incident was at all related to his episode in 2013 while coaching the Houston Texans, Kubiak explained that he felt there was a distinction.

“They were different to me, but they’ve obviously had some conversations trying to discuss what happened both times, but to me they were different. I feel very good.”

What's most important in this situation is that Gary Kubiak appears and sounds healthy enough to return to coaching and that he's received the "okay" from his family.

As long as that's settled, we can move on to the 4-2 Houston Texans.
