ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos coach John Fox came to Von Miller's defense Thursday, 24 hours after publicly expressing frustration in his suspended star over multiple traffic transgressions.
Fox said the team is helping Miller stay out of trouble any way it can, and he pointed out that the All-Pro linebacker's infractions were nothing more serious than traffic citations.
Miller was arrested when he tried to purchase a weapon last month and a routine background check revealed an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on traffic charges from last year. He also was pulled over near his suburban Denver home last week and cited for speeding and driving with a suspended license.
A third citation surfaced in California late Wednesday but his agent disputed a Dallas TV report that there was an open warrant for Miller stemming from the 2012 speeding ticket in Orange County.
