ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Denver Broncos running back Melvin Gordon was mentioned late Tuesday for driving under the influence and may now face league subject in addition to some inquiries from the group.
Police records reveal Gordon was also ticketed for speeding — between 25 and 39 miles over the posted limit — at downtown Denver. Gordon is scheduled to get a Nov. 13 court .
“We are aware of the situation involving Melvin Gordon,” that the Broncos said in a statement Wednesday morning. “Our organization has been in communication with him and is in the process of gathering more details.”
Broncos players had Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off following their match against the New England Patriots — initially scheduled for last year Sunday, then postponed one day — has been transferred to the Sunday. Gordon was one of many Broncos gamers that took to social websites on the weekend to express frustration that the group had basically lost its bye week once the match against the Patriots was transferred following a favorable COVID-19 evaluation by a New England participant.
The team returned to perform Wednesday morning. Gordon didn’t practice Wednesday, and trainer Vic Fangio said later that he”did not need [Gordon] to practice until we got into the base of what.”
“Talk to the league, get all the facts in order, before we make a decision about what we’re going to do and weigh the differences between what the mandated league punishment will be and anything we want to do in addition to that,” he explained.
Fangio also stated there’ll be some implications for Gordon, stating the Broncos were available to disciplining him based on what the team chose.
“I’m disappointed, but my own two kids have disappointed me at some points in their life, but I never stopped loving them,” Fangio said. “And he is one people, we are going to adore him, but there’ll be some implications for this, to exactly what occurred [Tuesday] night”
Fangio said he expected a decision on Gordon’s standing for Sunday’s match against New England later in the week, possibly Thursday or Friday.
“Everything is available at this time,” Fangio said.
Gordon may face league subject, such as a suspension, throughout this season. Broncos security Kareem Jackson was suspended for the last two matches of this 2019 year after a September DUI arrest this past year, also in Caribbean Denver.
Gordon signed a two-year, $16 million deal with all the Broncos throughout the offseason and had his initial 100-yard rushing game with all the group, such as a 43-yard touchdown run in the final moments, at an Oct. 1 win within the New York Jets.
He leads the Broncos in carries (65), rushing yards (281) and rushing touchdowns (3 ) ).
