(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) — The Denver Broncos are expected get head coach John Fox back on Monday as he returns from heart surgery.
Fox is expected to coach the team for their game on Dec. 8 against the Tennessee Titans. He will either be on the sidelines, or coach from the coaches box.
Earlier this month, Fox underwent surgery to have his aortic valve replaced.
“Lot of text messages,” quarterback Peyton Manning said when asked about his communication with Fox since his surgery. “A couple phone conversations early in the week …He’s given me tips and reminders, things he thinks I need to work on, things he thinks the offense needs to work on, and those have always been very helpful.”
Even though the team will welcome back Fox with open arms, they haven’t skipped a beat since his surgery.
Under interim head coach Jack Del Rio, the Broncos have gone 2-1 have the best record in the AFC at 9-2.
