MLB trade deadline:

Broncos to reinstate executive Russell

The SportsXchange

Matt Russell, the Denver Broncos' director of player personnel, will be reinstated from his suspension on Monday, according to ESPN.

Russell was suspended indefinitely in July after he was arrested for DUI. Monday marks 60 days since he was disciplined.

Tom Heckert, Denver's director of pro personnel, is also on suspension for a DUI arrest.

The team never provided a timeline of when the two suspended executives would be brought back, only announcing they were banned indefinitely.

However, the Broncos are reportedly ready to bring back Russell.

Russell was arrested July 6 in Colorado. He was suspected of being involved in an automobile accident and then crashing into a police car a few minutes later while under the influence of alcohol. He was charged with DUI, having an open container of alcohol in his vehicle, careless driving resulting in injury and failure to show proof of insurance.

Heckert was charged with driving a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content of 0.08 or more and careless driving, stemming from a June 11 incident in Parker, Colo.
