Broncos' John Fox swings away at report
By Jeff Legwold
Broncos coach John Fox said it’s business as usual for the Broncos and linebacker Von Miller until the team is notified it’s not.
Fox said following Monday’s practice the Broncos have not been notified of a suspension for Miller and as a result he continued to practice with the first-team defense.
ESPN Insiders Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter reported Monday morning that Miller is expected to be suspended for at least six games for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. Asked for the “latest’’ on the suspension after practice, Fox said:
“There’s really no latest. We’re aware of reports and sometimes they’re erroneous because we’d probably find out before other people.’’
Asked how long the team has been aware that the suspension could be six or eight games rather than the four that had been widely reported, Fox said:
“We’ve haven’t been aware of really any of it, to be honest with you. We don’t know the suspension. There is no suspension and at which time there is, we’ll report that. But anything else right now, really, is talking heads.’’
