Del Rio says Fox in 'good spirits'

Denver Broncos coach John Fox in doing well since undergoing aortic valve heart surgery, according to defensive coordinator and interim coach John Fox.

"I got to speak with John this morning for about 20 minutes on the phone, he sounded great," Del Rio told Denver reporters. "He's still in ICU and his spirits are really good. He was a little tired. Obviously he's gone through quite a bit, his body has been put through quite a bit."

Fox remains in the intensive care unit following his operation in Charlotte, N.C.

"But he's in great spirits and he's healing," Del Rio said. "We talked for a good bit, he obviously was wanting to talk about the team and how everyone was doing. I told him everybody was doing great and working to make him proud."
