DENVER (AP) — Denver coach John Fox was taken to a hospital in the Charlotte, N.C., area Saturday after feeling light-headed while playing golf during the Broncos' bye week.
Team spokesman Patrick Smyth said the 58-year-old Fox "is in good spirits and he told me he did not suffer a heart attack."
Smyth said Fox texted him in the afternoon to say, "I am doing fine. We are just running some tests and will know more in a few hours."
Fox was with a group of friends and family on a golf course near his offseason home when he started feeling dizzy, Smyth said.
Fox is in his third season as Broncos coach after a nine-year stint with the Carolina Panthers. He's 107-88 overall, including 6-5 in the playoffs. In Denver, he's 29-14, including 20-5 since quarterback Peyton Manning's arrival.
The Broncos (7-1) reconvene Monday in preparation for their Nov. 10 game at San Diego.
