Broncos' Kubiak to take a week off after migraine diagnosis

BY foxsports • October 10, 2016

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) Joe DeCamillis stepped up to the podium Monday after GM John Elway named him interim head coach and was instantly met with a welcome-to-the-show question:

''Who's your quarterback?''

The Denver Broncos' 51-year-old special teams coordinator dodged the inquiry, declining to say whether Trevor Siemian or Paxton Lynch would be under center when the Broncos (4-1) visit the Chargers (1-4) Thursday night.

''We've got a lot of guys we're evaluating this week,'' he said. ''How's that?''

Elway tabbed DeCamillis after doctors ordered head coach Gary Kubiak to take a week off after experiencing a ''complex migraine condition'' shortly after Denver suffered its first loss of the season.

The Broncos saw their nine-game winning streak snapped 23-16 by the Atlanta Falcons with Siemian sidelined by a bruised left shoulder.

Kubiak, 55, was transported to the hospital by an ambulance - the second time that's happened in three years - after experiencing flu-like symptoms. He was kept overnight and doctors determined he had what the team termed a ''complex migraine condition'' that caused lethargy.

Elway said Kubiak was being sent home from the hospital Monday afternoon.

Kubiak had a health scare in 2013 when he was coach of the Houston Texans, suffering a ''mini-stroke'' and collapsing at halftime of a game against Indianapolis. He returned 10 days later, but was soon fired.
