Elvis Dumervil mum on arrest
ESPN.com news services
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos Pro Bowl pass rusher Elvis Dumervil, who was arrested earlier this month on suspicion of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following a traffic dispute in Miami, said he hasn't heard from commissioner Roger Goodell regarding possible punishment from the league because of the incident.
Dumervil met with the media Wednesday but said he couldn't talk about his case.
"I know you guys have a lot of questions, but out of respect for the investigation, there's not much I can say," he said.
Dumervil could find himself subject to a suspension by Goodell, even if charges are not filed.
"Well, I think you're obviously disappointed any time you're involved in a situation like that as an organization," Denver coach John Fox said. "Like any situation you're involved in, you have to gather the information, find out to the best you can the facts and then let the process run itself and the truth eventually comes out."
Miami police say Dumervil's arrest was preceded by a road-rage incident in which he and another man allegedly lifted their shirts and displayed firearms to people in another vehicle.
The Broncos already are preparing for the extended absence of linebacker D.J. Williams, their top tackler, who is facing a six-game drug suspension and a drunken driving trial next month that could sideline him even longer.
