ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus will miss the next two weeks of voluntary practices to take time off from football in a bid to get his life and career on track following his latest off-field legal issue.

Coach Doug Marrone made the announcement after practice Tuesday, four days after Dareus crashed his Jaguar into a tree while allegedly racing another car not far from the Bills' stadium. Expressing disappointment in Dareus, Marrone said he is taking a more personal role in attempting to help a player who is dealing with what he called "personal issues."

Police say Dareus faces drag-racing, reckless endangerment and other charges as a result of the accident.

Last month, Dareus was charged in his native Alabama with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
