Fox Sports commentator Donovan McNabb was suspended indefinitely from the TV network following a June 28 arrest for driving under the influence, his second such arrest within the past two years.
Fox Sports said in a statement to SI.com Sunday that "it is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation."
Police documents released last week show McNabb was cited and released from a Gilbert, Arizona, police facility after being arrested June 28 following a non-injury collision late that night.
The former NFL quarterback told officers he had just left a sports bar and was driving to his Phoenix-area home.
The police report stated McNabb's vehicle rear-ended a car driven by the wife of a Gila River tribal police officer and McNabb appeared to be impaired.
He made a statement on his NBC Sports radio show last week, SI.com reported, citing Pro Football Talk, that read: "There was a story that was released, and I want everybody to be cognizant of it, because I am very aware of it, handling the matter at this particular point. But at this point, I have no further information, and as we continue on with the situation, then we'll let it handle as it will handle itself."
McNabb, 38, served a day in jail in April 2014 after pleading guilty in another DUI case resulting from a Dec. 15, 2013, arrest in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community east of Phoenix. He also was ordered to pay a fine of nearly $1,500 and enter an outpatient treatment program in Scottsdale.
McNabb played 13 years in the NFL after being drafted by Philadelphia with the second overall pick in 1999.
