07:21 AM ET 11.13 | For now, he hasn't yet been cleared to fly, but John Fox has travel on his mind. He is confident he will be back on the Broncos' sideline coaching before season's end. "Oh yeah, I don't think there's any question -- there's always a question -- but my goal and dream is to be out there before the conclusion of this season," Fox said. Fox watched the Broncos' 28-20 victory against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday from his Charlotte home. "I've got to admit there were parts of it I had to quit watching." ... [Fox] wanted it known his heart condition was genetic and not related to lifestyle or pressures of coaching. "Sure there's a lot of pressure and stress involved in coaching," Fox said. "But I think a lot of people out there in Denver and around the country and around the globe have pressure-packed jobs.

He is well liked in Denver, but he has a team that he needs to take to the dance. Not making it will bring back memories of post Elway shanahan.

Nothing new here. Was already reported he was wanting to get back before the end of the season.

Plus, he can't let Payton win games too long in his absence... They may realize Payton is the coach !

Best of luck to you, Foxy. Take care of yourself, and we'll see you in the playoffs.

If for some reason things start to degrade a bit near the end of the regular season, then maybe you just delay returning, and let Del Rio take the blame for the early playoff exit.

I don't see him as a blame-shifter. Or a blowhard. Or a guy who's risen above his level of competence.

Remember, this is they guy who got to the playoffs and won a game with Tim Tebow.

That's the way to go,get some rest!

Glad that he is getting better and I hope that he can come back so.
