DENVER (AP) — 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 the 58-year-old Fox "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 offseason home when he started feeling dizzy, Smyth said.

Fox is in his third season as Broncos coach after a nine-year stint with the Carolina Panthers. He's 107-88 overall, including 6-5 in the playoffs.

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

    For five days, Oscar Pistorius endured a withering cross-examination at his murder trial from a prosecutor who pounced on apparent inconsistencies in his testimony.
