Broncos HC John Fox has suspected heart attack

UPDATE: There is some good news to pass along. It turns out that Fox did not suffer a heart attack.



There was a scary situation this afternoon with Denver Broncos head coach John Fox. According to reports, Fox was rushed to the hospital on Saturday with a suspected heart attack. ESPN’s Adam Schefter had the news:

The good news is that Fox is expected to be okay, despite the scare:

Fox was on a golf course in the Charlotte area before being taken to the hospital with chest pains.

The Broncos are currently on their bye week, which is good news because it gives doctors more time to fully examine Fox and it will allow him to recover from any scare.

We hope that Fox fully recovers and are happy with the reports that he is expected to be okay.

    I had a similar experience a year and a few months ago.
    Scare but no heart attack. Unidentified heart episode. Whatever it was mimicked a heart attack, but the doctors said whatever it was I fought it off real well. I retired my car a couple of years ago and lost a lot of weight through walking for errands, so they said that probably helped a lot! Get well Coach Fox. Scary timr but you should recover just fine fairly quick! God Bless you and Go, Broncos!
