John Fox, who had heart valve surgery on Monday, was released from a Charlotte area hospital on Friday.

“My recovery is progressing well — I am feeling better and getting stronger each day," Fox said in a statement released by the team. "I will begin the next phase of my recovery in Charlotte and continue outpatient appointments with doctors, who will clear me to return to Denver when the time is right. Although I’m eager to return to coaching, my No. 1 focus is my health. I believe in our players and have full confidence in [interim head coach] Jack Del Rio and our staff."
