The Denver Broncos released this statement at 9:45 a.m. MDT.

After experiencing flu-like symptoms following Sunday’s game, Denver Broncos Head Coach Gary Kubiak underwent several precautionary tests at a local hospital. These included an MRI and CT scan, both of which came back normal.

Kubiak was diagnosed with a complex migraine condition that caused extreme fatigue and body weakness. He received medication and is feeling much better with an expected release from the hospital this afternoon.

The good news is that he is expected to be released from the hospital this afternoon.

John Elway will meet the media at 2 p.m. MDT to give further updates on Kubiak’s status.

Injecting personal opinion now: I don’t think we will see Kubiak at the game on Thursday. He should take the time this week and then the mini-bye next week to rest.

Quarterbacks coach Greg Knapp took over play-calling duties late in the fourth quarter, so he would likely fill that role on Thursday if Kubiak can’t be on the sideline.

Stay tuned for more updates after Elway’s news conference.
