(CNN) – Donovan McNabb, the NFL quarterback turned commentator, will be sidelined from his jobs at Fox Sports and NBC Sports in the wake of his arrest in Arizona late last month.

Fox Sports said Sunday evening that McNabb had been “suspended indefinitely.”

“It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation,” the network said.

NBC previously said he was taking a leave of absence from his radio role there.

McNabb was arrested on June 28 when police officers in Gilbert, Arizona, suspected he was driving under the influence of alcohol, “the second such arrest for the former NFL quarterback in the last 18 months,” the Arizona Republic reported last week.
