The Broncos say head coach John Fox was taken to a hospital but, contrary to initial fears, did not have a heart attack.

“Denver Broncos Head Coach John Fox was taken to a Charlotte-area hospital after feeling light-headed while playing golf on Saturday,” the team said in a statement. “He is being held at the hospital for testing and further observation. Our medical staff is currently in contact with Coach Fox, his family and the doctors who are treating him. Additional information will be provided as it becomes available.”

Although the team statement does not offer any diagnosis, a Broncos spokesman said that Fox did not suffer a heart attack. We’re also told that Fox is in good spirits and is feeling OK, given the circumstances.

The Broncos are on their bye this week.
