ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Head Coach John Fox underwent an aortic heart valve replacement Monday morning.

Fox was in good spirits in the hospital, and released a statement of his own.
“I sincerely appreciate all of the support from friends, Denver Broncos fans and so many around the league," Fox said in the statement on Saturday. “I look forward to returning to coaching as soon as possible.”
