CANTON, Ohio Despite being hospitalized earlier Thursday with a kidney stone attack, Vic Fangio plans to make his head coaching debut in the Hall of Fame game when his Denver Broncos face the Atlanta Falcons.
The 60-year-old Fangio was stricken hours before kickoff, but arrived at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium around 6 p.m. The opening game of the preseason begins at 8 p.m.
"Seems like he is fine, he will get that behind him," Broncos general manager John Elway said. "Vic is a tough guy."
Elway hired Fangio last winter after Fangio built the dynamic defense for the Chicago Bears from 2015-18.
