Cardinals issue statement on RB coach after home battery charge

Glendale, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona Cardinals running back coach James Saxon has been charged with two counts of domestic battery stemming from an alleged incident in Indianapolis in May.

One of the counts is a felony that involves domestic battery in the presence of a child under the age of 16.

A lawyer representing Saxon did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the matter on Friday.

Cardinals coach Cliff Kingsbury said the Saxons have been placed on administrative leave. Kingsbury said the team was aware of Saxon’s arrest when it happened in May.
