The Denver Broncos need to win this week vs the Kansas City Chiefs to ensure that they win the AFC West and get at least a first-round bye for the playoffs, but they’ll play Sunday once again without their head coach, as John Fox continues to recover from a heart procedure. Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that Fox will be back at work on Monday, the day after the Broncos return from Kansas City after their game against the Chiefs:

This report came from NFL.com yesterday:
Mike Klis of The Denver Post reported that the Broncos coach returned to Denver on Wednesday for the first time since undergoing an aortic heart valve replacement on Nov. 4.
Fox, 58, isn’t expected to return to team headquarters this week and won’t be with the squad Sunday in Kansas City when the Broncos play the Chiefs, per The Post.
ProFootballTalk reported Wednesday that there’s a “legitimate possibility” Fox — when he does return — could spend at least one game coaching from the booth, per a source.
