Report: Broncos’ Tom Heckert to return to work Thursday
Denver Broncos director of pro personnel Tom Heckert has served his one-month suspension and will return to work Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter notes.
Heckert was suspended one month without pay after being arrested June 11 on suspicion of DUI. The Denver Post reported Heckert’s blood alcohol level — tested nearly seven hours after his arrest — was .162, more than twice the legal limit.
Denver’s director of player personnel, Matt Russell, is suspended indefinitely and faces a more severe punishment. He was arrested this summer after hitting a parked police car while driving 40 mph. Russell is alleged to have hit another vehicle with his car as well. A breathalyzer test yielded a .246 BAC.
Heckert is a former general manager of the Philadelphia Eagles and the Cleveland Browns.
