The NFL plans to contact the Buffalo Bills regarding team president Russ Brandon’s abrupt resignation amid allegations he had an inappropriate relationship with a female employee.
The league released a statement Thursday saying it will discuss the matter with the Bills and ”make a decision in the next few days about what Dave Casper Jersey , if any, further steps we will take.”
Brandon was also president of the Terry and Kim Pegula-owned Buffalo Sabres.
NHL spokesman Gary Meagher tells The Associated Press the league has determined Brandon’s resignation is ”appropriately a club matter” after consulting with Sabres officials.
Brandon resigned Tuesday after spending 20 years working up the Bills’ executive ranks Nick O'Leary Jersey , and spending the past three years overseeing the Sabres.
Two people with direct knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Brandon’s resignation came after he was confronted about the relationship by the Pegulas. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because it is an internal matter, and the Pegulas did not provide a reason when announcing they accepted Brandon’s resignation.
Brandon told the AP he had contemplated stepping down from the job for some time Jordan Matthews Jersey , and felt the timing was right following the conclusion of the NFL draft. He did not respond to follow-up questions regarding the alleged relationship.
Indians right-hander Danny Salazar will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery.
The team said Salazar had an arthroscopic debridement and bursectomy. He will not be able to throw for at least three months while he recovers and there is no definitive timetable on when he’ll pitch again.
Salazar has been on the disabled list since the start of the season after arriving at spring training with a sore shoulder. He had numerous procedures before the decision was made to have the operation.
The 28-year-old Salazar went 5-6 with a 4.28 ERA in 19 starts for Cleveland last season. His loss deprives the AL Central leaders of some depth in case they suffer any more injuries.
Salazar made the All-Star team in 2016, when he went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts. Salazar has been with the Indians since 2013.
