ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - John Fox has had it with Von Millers transgressions. Now, the Denver Broncos are waiting to see if NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has, too. The All-Pro linebacker, whos serving a six-game suspension for violating the leagues drug-abuse policy, was cited last week for speeding and driving with a suspended license, his second run-in with the law in less than a month. "Obviously, its something that were not happy about," Fox said Wednesday. "Everybody here has an individual responsibility not only to themselves but to this organization, as well as to this football team. So, obviously its something that were not pleased about. Ill leave it at that." Asked if he felt if this latest citation could result in a longer banishment for Miller, the Broncos coach said, "Youd have to ask the commissioner that. Thats not my lane." The NFL declined comment. Yet another traffic violation surfaced late Wednesday when the Denver Post reported that Miller has an open warrant for his arrest in California. A spokeswoman for the Orange County District Attorneys Office told the newspaper that Miller has a warrant for failure to appear on a traffic ticket issued last year. The leagues conduct policy states that discipline is possible for "conduct that undermines or puts at risk the integrity and reputation of the NFL, NFL clubs, or NFL players," and the commissioner has pledged to take a sterner approach with repeat offenders. However, traffic violations have generally not been a part of the leagues conduct policy. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson said Miller was cited on Sept. 5 near his home for speeding and driving with a suspended license. Hes due in court on Oct. 28. The traffic stop occurred at 10:30 a.m. on the day the Broncos kicked off the NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens, the first regular season game that Miller missed for repeated violations of the leagues drug-abuse policy. Robinson said Miller was pulled over for going 38 mph in a 25 mph residential zone and a routine computer check revealed he was driving with a suspended license. Miller was with his father, Von Sr., who was then allowed to drive the vehicle, a black BMW thats registered to Millers mother, Gloria, according to the summons and complaint. The officer who pulled Miller over wrote in capital letters on the summons: MUST APPEAR IN COURT, and he circled it. Miller was arrested on Aug. 10 when he tried to make a firearm purchase at a gun club near the Broncos practice facilities. A routine background check revealed he had an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on multiple charges from last October, when he was cited for driving carelessly and lacking a license and proof of insurance. Millers teammates are "still going to be there for him and help him make good decisions all the time," linebacker and co-captain Wesley Woodyard said after practice. "Hes like my little brother, so Im always going to be tough on him. ... Im always going to tell him to do the right thing." Miller has been working out and attending meetings at Broncos headquarters but isnt allowed to speak with the media during his suspension. He wasnt in the locker room Wednesday as he had been during the 45-minute period that was open to reporters Monday. He has politely declined all interviews since his suspension was handed down on Aug. 20. Miller had 30 sacks in his first two NFL seasons. He was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2011 after the Broncos made him the second overall pick out of Texas A&M. He set the franchise record with 18 1/2 sacks last season, leading Broncos Executive Vice-President John Elway to call him the best player hes ever seen. Miller first made headlines in the off-season when he guaranteed the Broncos would win the Super Bowl. Because of his suspension that could cost him more than $2 million in lost salary and prorated signing bonuses, he cant start to back up that boast until Week 7 when Denver plays at Indianapolis — providing he doesnt face additional discipline.

Biermann tore his right Achilles tendon and Ewing separated his left shoulder in Sundays 31-24 win over the St. Louis Rams. Coach Mike Smith said Monday each will be placed on the reserve injured list. "As I say many times, one mans misfortune is another mans opportunity and weve got some guys that we expect are going to step up and make some plays for us," Smith said. The loss of Biermann will lead to expanded roles for defensive ends Jonathan Massaquoi and rookie Malliciah Goodman. The versatile Biermann also played a linebacker position which had him dropping back in pass coverage. "Theres a role for a (backup) defensive end when Kroy was playing defensive end and theres a role for one of the (backup) linebackers," Smith said. "Weve put that in place from the very beginning. "As you know, your roster never stays the same from year to year and usually it doesnt stay the same from week to week. We will make the adjustments and move forward." Biermann was credited with two tackles before leaving the field on a cart late in the first half. Biermann, a fifth-round pick in 2008, has 16 1/2 career sacks, including 4 in 2012. Osi Umenyiora, an off-season free-agent signee from the Giants, is the teams other starting defensive end. Ewings injury will lead to more playing time for Jason Snelling, who ran for a touchdown against the Rams after starting running back Steven Jackson left the game with a thigh injury. Snelling has played fullback and running back in his seven seasons with the Falcons. "Jason has always stepped up whenever hes had an opportunity," Smith said.dddddddddddd"I thought he did an outstanding job yesterday." Ewing did not have a carry but had one catch for 14 yards before hurting his shoulder in the first quarter. This is the second straight year Ewing has suffered a season-ending injury. His tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee before his 2012 rookie season. Smith said he met with Ewing on Monday morning. "Its tough because hes not been able to stay on the field," Smith said. "Hes had the knee injury last year and it ended with him going on reserve injured early. The same thing is happening this year. "As I told him hey, weve just got to get you healthy. March and April will roll around and well reconnect and get moving forward." The Falcons beat the Rams despite losing five starters with injuries: Biermann, Ewing, Jackson, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (foot) and cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh). Samuel missed the opening game at New Orleans with a thigh injury. Backup defensive end Cliff Matthews returned after leaving with a neck injury. The Falcons had other injury concerns entering the game. Receiver Roddy White has been slowed by an ankle sprain since the third week of the preseason. His playing time has been limited in the first two regular-season games. Receiver Julio Jones (knee), offensive tackle Sam Baker (back) and defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee) started against St. Louis after being listed as questionable. Smith, who normally gives injury updates on Wednesday unless a player suffers a season-ending injury, had no updates Monday on Jackson, Weatherspoon or Samuel. The Falcons play at Miami next Sunday.
