Broncos coach John Fox remained hospitalized Sunday as he awaits aortic value replacement surgery in North Carolina.
Fox spoke with Broncos executive vice president John Elway by phone Sunday to discuss logistics during his absence, including who will serve as interim head coach.
All signs point to defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio being that man, although team spokesman Patrick Smyth said that as of Sunday afternoon no decision had been made.
Del Rio served as Jacksonville’s coach for nine seasons before joining Fox’s staff last year.
Fox also spoke with his captains, including Peyton Manning and Wesley Woodyard. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
