Bowles scheduled to meet with doctors after health scare

Publish date:

NEW YORK (AP) Jets coach Todd Bowles was scheduled to meet with his doctors on Monday after being hospitalized late last week.

Bowles was hospitalized Friday and missed the team flight for Saturday's 41-3 loss to New England. He flew the day of the game and was on the sideline for the team's sixth loss in seven games.

Bowles, 53, told reporters after the game the problem was ''kidney stones, gall stones, gall bladder'' and that he wasn't certain he would be able to make the game at all.

Bowles, who is in his second season with the Jets, also had a health scare in February when a benign mass was removed from his throat.

The Jets are off Monday. Bowles is expected to run practice Tuesday and speak to reporters afterward.

The Jets (4-11) host the Bills on Sunday to end the regular season.
