John Fox is back in Denver following heart surgery, although there is no word yet as to when he might be back in control of the Denver Broncos.

Denver Broncos head coach John Fox has arrived back in the city of Denver after recuperating from heart surgery in in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Fox's operation earlier this month has meant that Jack Del Rio has been in charge of Broncos team affairs, with no word yet on when Fox may return to the sidelines.

Despite his absence and condition, Fox has kept in regular contact with his players and staff, having been involved in team meetings via Skype and having daily conversations with Del Rio about various team matters.

Reporter Mike Klis of the Denver Post confirmed Fox's return home via his Twitter account, stating that it was likely that he would watch his first game back from the booth rather than be down on the field.

The Broncos currently lead the AFC West with a 9-2 record.
