Found August 13, 2013 on Fox Sports:
One of two suspended Denver Broncos executives can return to work this week after serving a monthlong punishment. Tom Heckert, the team's director of pro personnel, will be allowed back at team headquarters Thursday. Director of player personnel Matt Russell is serving an indefinite suspension. John Elway's top two advisers, Heckert and Russell were arrested and jailed on suspicion of drunken driving in separate incidents within a month of each other this summer, resulting in the biggest black eye for the organization since a videotape scandal cost former coach Josh McDaniels his job in 2010. Heckert, 46, was arrested June 11 in Parker, just 36 days after Elway hired the former GM of the Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns.
