The Denver Broncos have released this statement on head coach John Fox:

"Denver Broncos Head Coach John Fox was taken to a Charlotte-area hospital after feeling light-headed while playing golf on Saturday.

"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."

The team stopped short of saying heart attack and did not mention chest pains. It appears as if all is okay with the head coach.

Denver's next practice is scheduled to take place on Monday. If Fox is unable to coach, offensive coordinator Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio are expected to co-run practice, per the Denver Post.
