John Fox to Undergo Heart Surgery Out 4-6 Weeks

John Fox

Hopefully, he will make a full recovery.

Denver Broncos 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 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.
