John Fox is back in the Rocky Mountains.
ProFootballTalk reported Wednesday that there's a "legitimate possibility" Fox -- when he does return -- could spend at least one game coaching from the booth, per a source.
That sounds about right. Interim coach Jack Del Rio has done a capable job running the show, and The Post noted that Denver plans to ease Fox in on a "gradual basis."
Still, it's not as if Fox has been tucked away in Charlotte reading Emily Brontë. He's involved in every brushstroke this team makes, and that so-called "gradual basis" will melt into the long hours of Denver's playoff push soon enough.
