Fox is currently in the hospital’s post-operative critical care unit, where his recovery is being monitored by doctors.
He's expected to be sidelined for several weeks.
“Our family greatly appreciates the overwhelming support and well-wishes we’ve received for John," said Robin Fox, Fox's wife. "Along with his medical team, we will take great care of him so he can fully recover and get back to coaching the Broncos as soon as possible.”
