Donovan McNabb has been suspended indefinitely by Fox Sports, according to a report from Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated.

In late June, the 38-year-old McNabb was arrested for DUI in Arizona. It was the second time within two years that he's been arrested for the same crime. McNabb spent one day in jail after being arrested for DUI in January 2014. 90 days in jail is the minimum sentence for a second-offense DUI in Arizona.

The former NFL quarterback last played in the league in 2011 with the Minnesota Vikings after being traded away by Washington. The Philadelphia Eagles officially retired McNabb's No. 5 jersey during the 2013 NFL season.

McNabb originally joined Fox Sports 1 as an analyst in 2013. The network released the following statement regarding McNabb's suspension:

"Donovan McNabb has been suspended indefinitely. It is important that Donovan use this time as best he can to resolve his personal situation."
