Whoa... Hope he is okay.

I suspect a Peyton Manning team would suffer the least out of any team in the NFL with an interim coach.

Another tweet that he should be ok.

Eta: occurred on golf course.

Broncos believe that even with HC John Fox suffering a suspected heart attack, he should be OK.

Per a Broncos spokesman, it's been determined John Fox didn't have a heart attack. Felt lightheaded on the golf course, was hospitalized.

Jesus. Hope he's alright.

Not to be callous, but I hear Peyton gets along well with Denver's OC, Gase, and he'd fill in well as the HC. Same for Del Rio (as in players seem to respect and like him).

NFL Network reporting that it was "NOT" a heart attack (as previously reported)... just felt light-headed (strange) while golfing. And took some precautions.

Sounds like he'll be back on the sidelines next week.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox is expected to have heart valve surgery this week that could sideline him for up to two months, according to a team official.

Fox was hospitalized Saturday after feeling light-headed while playing golf in the Charlotte, N.C., area.

Tests were conducted Saturday and will continue Sunday, according to a source familiar with the situation.




Fox could need one of two different types of surgery to correct the valve in his heart, per a source. The more severe one would be expected to sideline him two months. The less severe option would sideline him for a shorter period.

One person debriefed on the details believed this was not a condition to risk and considered surgery likely.

Fox also was aware that he had a condition with a heart valve that eventually would require surgery. He was hoping to avoid it until after this season but when he experienced light-headedness on the golf course, his timeline very well might have been expedited.

While Fox is away from the team, offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio are expected to have added duties.

The Broncos released a statement Saturday confirming that the 58-year-old Fox was taken to a hospital.

"Denver Broncos Head Coach John Fox was taken to a Charlotte-area hospital after feeling light-headed while playing golf on Saturday," the Broncos' statement said. "He is being held at the hospital for testing and further observation. Our medical staff is currently in contact with Coach Fox, his family and the doctors who are treating him.

"Additional information will be provided as it becomes available."

Fox claimed he is "doing fine" in a text message sent to ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen.

"I am doing fine," Fox said in the text message. "We are just running some tests, will know more in a few hours."

Sources initially told ESPN that Fox had experienced symptoms similar to a heart attack. But Broncos executive director of media relations Patrick Smyth tweeted that Fox did not suffer a heart attack.

Scary. Hope he comes out ok and gets back on the sideline.

I'd assume Del Rio takes over in the interim.

Sound like the late night info is that he could miss a few games. We saw Chuck Pagano miss a good chunk of the season last year.

CBS reporting he will/could miss a few games. Denver has had a lot of curveballs thrown their way, some of it of their own accord in relation to the front office and the drinking prior to the season, Von Miller suspended 6 games, now the HC might miss some time. It's never easy even with a stacked deck on offense. I think they lost a couple starting OL guys as well.

The last thing the rest of the league wants to see is the Broncos playing with more emotion to win one for the Gipper.
