Latest on Kubiak’s Condition
Sunday, Oct. 9
According to Nick Groke of the Denver Post, the 55-year-old coach left in an ambulance after the players had cleared the locker room.
The Broncos suffered their first defeat of the season in Week 5 with a 23-16 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.
Vic Lombardi of Altitude TV provided some more info on the coach’s condition:
Kubiak notably collapsed on the field in 2013 when he was the head coach of the Houston Texans.
According to Marc Sessler of NFL.com, the coach had suffered a transient ischemic attack.
“I don’t think it changed me as a person,” Kubiak said of the incident in February. “I think after going through that and talking to a lot of doctors there in Houston and those type of things, it made me change a little bit as a coach and how I go about things.”
Kubiak was brought to the hospital as a precaution Sunday.
