    That was my intention. Apologies if there was a violation, but I intended it as a comment on previous reporting.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Police are investigating whether drugs had a role in the death of Oklahoma linebacker Austin Box.
    A police report says a man at the house where officers responded Thursday morning believed Box had overdosed. Authorities didn’t immediately release an official cause of death.
