In a statement released by the team, Fox thanked the doctors and the encouragement he received from his family, friends and all Denver Broncos fans.

Defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio has taken over coaching duties while Fox recovers.

"Although I'm eager to return to coaching, my No. 1 focus is my health," Fox said. "I believe in our players and have full confidence in Jack Del Rio and our staff.

"While it's extremely difficult to be away from the team on Sunday in San Diego, I'll be cheering them on from home just like the many Broncos fans who have supported me throughout this process."
