Fox fed up with star linebacker

  • Print

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- John Fox has had it with Von Miller's repeated transgressions. Now, the Denver Broncos are waiting to see if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has, too.

The All-Pro linebacker, who's serving a six-game suspension for violating the league's drug-abuse policy, was cited last week for speeding and driving with a suspended license, his second run-in with the law in less than a month.

Said Fox on Wednesday, "Obviously, it's something that we're not happy about."

The league's conduct policy states that discipline is possible for "conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL players," and the commissioner has pledged to take a sterner approach with repeat offenders.

 

Fan death not caused by alcohol: report

SAN FRANCISCO -- The devastated parents of a 32-year-old football fan who fell to his death from a pedestrian overpass outside Candlestick Park said Wednesday their son had a "few" beers while tailgating but wasn't so drunk he couldn't walk straight.

Janet and Dennis Hayes, responding to reports from witnesses that her son Kevin Hayes was heavily intoxicated and stumbling before the San Francisco 49ers game, said he had walked up a ramp and was turning onto a staircase where the rail was lower when he slipped and fell.

"Kevin put his hand out thinking the rail was going to be there, but he slipped, tried to grab the rail, and went over the side," Janet Hayes told The Associated Press, citing the account provided by her son, Jeffrey, who was with his older brother when he fell.

 

Henne thrust into starter's role

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Chad Henne has been in and out of the starting lineup before -- just about every year he's been in the league actually.

So this is nothing new.

Henne will make his 38th career start when the Jacksonville Jaguars play at Oakland on Sunday. Henne is filling in for Blaine Gabbert, who is sidelined at least this week because of a laceration on the back of his throwing hand. It will be Henne's seventh start in Jacksonville's last eight regular-season games.

"You never expect anything like that," Henne said. "But anything can happen in this league and you always have to be prepared and prepare like you're the starter and get your opportunity."

Henne's latest chance comes amid some concerns for Jacksonville's offence. Not only is he taking over a unit that managed a league-low 178 yards and no points in the season opener, but he could be without several offensive teammates.
