In a statement, the network said, “Fox Sports is disturbed by reports that have surfaced indicating that some NFL players were arrested for assaulting a police officer.
We have no evidence to support these claims, and we condemn the actions of any NFL player or employee who engages in any form of misconduct, whether in the NFL or any other sport.
We hope this issue will be addressed with league discipline.”

We also value the players who play for our teams and we will continue to support them in their pursuit of a successful NFL career.
