Fox remains in intensive care and is being monitored closely by doctors, the source said. The goal is for him to be transferred to a different level of the hospital within the next couple of days. Fox has a home in Charlotte, N.C., and it would make sense for him to begin his recovery in North Carolina.
The Broncos said that if Fox had his way, the high-energy, enthusiastic head coach would be back on the sideline as soon as possible. The team wants him to take as much time as he needs, however, and to listen to his doctors rather than to rush back. The Broncos have emphasized they want Fox to take things very slowly, and they are prepared to be without him for an extended period.
