JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Jacksonville Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey is out of the hospital and feeling fine.

The Jaguars said Mularkey was released Monday afternoon after a brief stay that included tests. Mularkey showed up at the facility a day after his team's 17-10 loss to the New York Jets and started feeling ill. He went to a team trainer, who took him to a nearby hospital.

The team offered few other details about his illness.

But the Jaguars (2-11) say Mularkey is expected back at work Tuesday.

Defensive coordinator Mel Tucker had informed players about Mularkey's absence at a team meeting Monday afternoon.

Tucker says Mularkey "seemed to be doing pretty good" and looks "forward to having him back in here."
