Denver Broncos head coach John Fox will return to Denver on Wednesday, according to a report from Mike Klis at the Denver Post.

Just in time for Thanksgiving, Broncos coach John Fox will return Wednesday to Denver, according to a team source.


Fox has been on leave since having heart valve-replacement surgery Nov. 4 in Charlotte, N.C. He has been recovering at his offseason home in Charlotte, walking every day, watching game film and staying in communication with interim head coach Jack Del Rio.

Fox underwent surgery to replace a heart valve after reportedly feeling lightheaded while golfing during the Broncos bye week.  He had put the surgery off prior to this incident, but it was determined that the surgery was needed immediately.

It is still not known when Fox will return to coaching.

Denver is 9-1 this season, and 2-0 since Fox’ departure with Jack Del Rio at the helm.  The Broncos are taking on the New England Patriots in a key regular season matchup for both teams on Sunday Night Football.
