Scary news emerged Sunday night that Denver Broncos‘ head coach Gary Kubiak was admitted to the hospital with a complex migraine.

The Broncos announced that Kubiak will not coach the team in their Thursday night matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Special team coordinator Joe DeCamillis has been named as interim head coach to temporarily replace Kubiak.

In a released statement from the team, Kubiak said he is feeling a bit better and that he will return to the team after a week’s worth of rest.

“I’m feeling much better and am thankful for everyone’s thoughts and well-wishes,” Kubiak said. “It’s tough not being there with our team this week, but I’ve got great confidence in Joe D, our coordinators and coaching staff, and all of our players.

“Greek (Broncos medical trainer Steve Antonopulos) and the medical team did an outstanding job taking care of me and getting this figured out. I’ve made a lot of positive changes health-wise in recent years and will continue to listen to doctors.

“I’ll be at home this week, resting and getting healthy, and I look forward to rejoining the team on Monday.”
