The Broncos are doing what they can to comfort running backs back Eric Studesville as he grieves from losing his parents.
Broncos owner Pat Bowlen provided a private plane to Studesville and his family so they could fly to Madison, Wis., to be with relatives and work on the memorial service for Al and Janet Studesville, who died Tuesday in Texas while riding a motorcycle.
"We view ourselves as a family," said Broncos coach John Fox, who addressed the tragedy with his team Wednesday. "Those things need to be talked about and brought out. This is a well-liked coach on our staff."
According to the Amarillo Globe-News, Al and Janet Studesville were riding together on a Honda Goldwing traveling east on U.S. Highway 54 when a tractor trailer headed westbound crossed into the their lane. The Studesvilles were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver, Dewayne Buck, was uninjured.
"Everybody's got parents and we all understand what a tragedy this is," Fox said. "We're a large group that's a microcosm of society. Good things happen, bad things happen and you rally around each other."
