Update (5:45 p.m.): Good news from Denver, as Wade Phillips has been released from the hospital and is expected to resume his duties with the Broncos on Monday.


Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was carted off the field in the first half of Sunday's game between the Broncos and the visiting San Diego Chargers.

During a play in which Broncos cornerback Bradley Roby returned an interception for a touchdown, Chargers running back Melvin Gordon plowed into Phillips on the sideline.

Phillips was then taken to a hospital for examination.


Phillips, 69, helped coach the Broncos to a Super Bowl championship last season. He has coached in the NFL since 1976.
