Posted September 11, 2013 on AP on Fox
John Fox has had it with Von Miller's 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. ''Obviously, it's something that we're not happy about,'' Fox said Wednesday. ''Everybody here has an individual responsibility not only to themselves but to this organization, as well as to this football team. So, obviously it's something that we're not pleased about. I'll leave it at that.'' Asked if he felt if this latest citation could result in a longer banishment for Miller, the Broncos coach said, ''You'd have to ask the commissioner that. That's not my lane.'' The NFL declined comment. 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. However, traffic violations have generally not been a part of the league's conduct policy. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Miller was cited on Sept. 5 near his home for speeding and driving with a suspended license. He's due in court on Oct. 28. The traffic stop occurred at 10:30 a.m. on the day the Broncos kicked off the NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens, the first regular season game that Miller missed for repeated violations of the league's drug-abuse policy. Robinson said Miller was pulled over for going 38 mph in a 25 mph residential zone and a routine computer check revealed he was driving with a suspended license. Miller was with his father, Von Sr., who was then allowed to drive the vehicle, a black BMW that's registered to Miller's mother, Gloria, according to the summons and complaint. Miller was arrested on Aug. 10 when he tried to make a firearm purchase at a gun club near the Broncos practice facilities. A routine background check revealed he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on multiple charges from last October, when he was cited for driving carelessly and lacking a license and proof of insurance. Miller's teammates are ''still going to be there for him and help him make good decisions all the time,'' linebacker and co-captain Wesley Woodyard said. ''He's like my little brother, so I'm always going to be tough on him. ... I'm always going to tell him to do the right thing.'' Miller had 30 sacks in his first two NFL seasons. He was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 after the Broncos made him the second overall pick out of Texas A&M. He set the franchise record with 18 1/2 sacks last season, leading Broncos Executive Vice President John Elway to call him the best player he's ever seen. Miller first made headlines in the offseason when he guaranteed the Broncos would win the Super Bowl. Because of his suspension that could cost him more than $2 million in lost salary and prorated signing bonuses, he can't start to back up that boast until Week 7 when Denver plays at Indianapolis - providing he doesn't face additional discipline. Notes: Woodyard (ankle, foot) said he'll return to practice Thursday and will play against the Giants this weekend. ... CB Champ Bailey worked with the strength and conditioning coach during practice, an indication he's getting close to returning to practice for the first time since spraining his left foot Aug. 17. ... Fox wore an NYPD cap at practice to commemorate the 12th anniversary of 9/11.
