Denver Broncos coach John Fox is hospitalized in Charlotte, N.C.

  • Follow NFL

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 Fox, 58, “is in good spirits and he told me he did not suffer a heart attack and he’s undergoing additional tests to determine the best course of action.”

Fox was with a group of friends and family on a golf course near his off-season home when he started feeling dizzy, Smyth said.

The Broncos (7-1) reconvene Monday in preparation for their Nov. 10 game at San Diego.

PATRIOTS: The team lost another key piece in their front seven when they placed starting defensive tackle Tommy Kelly on season-
ending injured reserve.

Kelly injured his right knee Oct. 6 against the Cincinnati Bengals. He had returned to practice for the first time on Wednesday and Thursday this week on a limited basis.

COWBOYS: Placed placed right guard Brian Waters on injured reserve.

Dallas needed the spot for today’s game against the Minnesota Vikings for cornerback Micah Pellerin.

With Morris Claiborne out with a hamstring injury, the Cowboys needed Pellerin because they had only three corners on the 53-man roster in Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick and B.W. Webb.

DOLPHINS: The NFL Players Association is looking into Jonathan Martin’s situation in Miami, but has not launched an investigation into possible harassment of the offensive tackle by his teammates.

Martin left the Dolphins on Monday.
