LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) -Bucknell coach Pat Flannery returned to practice Friday after missing a week because of an undisclosed illness.
Following a two-game absence, doctors cleared Flannery to lead the Bison on the road Saturday night against Navy , team spokesman Jon Terry said Friday.
Flannery checked himself into Evangelical Community Hospital last week. On Jan. 30, he appeared to slip on the sideline following an argument over a foul early in the second half of a home loss to Lehigh. He stayed on the bench for two minutes before going to the locker room.
Flannery was released from the hospital the next night, although he continued to undergo medical tests over the next few days.
``After undergoing thorough medical evaluation and treatment, Flannery's doctors have determined the cause of the illness and have given him full authorization to resume coaching,'' the school said in a statement. ``Since this is a personal medical situation, further specifics are being kept private at this time.''

Three years ago, Flannery took a three-game leave in the middle of the season, an absence he later said was stress-related.
