Fox “on track” as he recovers from heart surgery

Serious health situations for a pair of NFL coaches have yielded good news, so far.

With Texans coach Gary Kubiak released from a hospital today after suffering a transient ischemic attack during Sunday night’s game against the Colts, Broncos coach John Fox remains “on track” to a full and complete recovery a day after undergoing surgery to replace an aortic heart valve.

The surgery, originally set for Tuesday, happened Monday.  A day later, he’s getting plenty of rest.  Coach Fox actually was up and walking a bit today.

Jack Del Rio has been named the interim coach pending Fox’s return to Denver.  No announcement has been made regarding Kubiak’s replacement, or whether he’ll miss Sunday’s game against the Cardinals.

We continue to extend our best wishes to Kubiak, Fox, and their families.

    Expect Schiano to clutch his chest and hit the turf this week.

    In coach speak it sounds like he’s “ahead of schedule”

    The performance of his team’s defense broke his heart.

    Glad to hear about coach Fox’s recovery. Makes me feel real good in that I’m going to have the same surgery in two weeks. Our prayers for him and his family.

    Hope Fox heals up for the playoffs. Jack ain’t ready.

    I went thru this same surgery a couple years ago. I was up and walking a day later, too, but for short distances. I don’t expect to see him on the sidelines again until December- MAYBE, but Playoffs FOR SURE.

    Alot of teams wish they had a prospect coach as an interm. JDR will win a hard fought SB this year. Go Broncos!
