Donovan McNabb Suspended by Fox After DUI Charge

Former Eagles QB is suspended indefinitely. He's also taken a voluntary leave from his radio show.


Donvan McNabb, everyone’s favorite and/or least-favorite former Eagles quarterback, has been suspended from his TV duties as a football commentator in the aftermath of a DUI charge.

“Donovan McNabb has been suspended indefinitely,” Fox Sports said in a statement to “It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation.”

McNabb is also taking a voluntary leave of absence from his job with NBC Radio, where he co-hosts “Under Center with McNabb & Malone.” “Donovan McNabb is taking immediate leave to address some personal issues, and we support him in this decision,” a network statement said, according to CNN.

McNabb was arrested in late June after the vehicle he was driving rear-ended a stopped vehicle at an intersection in Gilbert, Arizona, near where he lives. McNabb also spent a day in jail last year on a conviction from a December 2013 DUI charge.

McNabb made a statement, ostensibly about the arrest, on the radio show last Tuesday. Pro Football Talk reports:

“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,” McNabb said. “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.”
