Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim is facing a potential fine and suspension stemming from his DUI on July 4, a source told Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio.

The duration of the possible suspension and the magnitude of the fine are both unknown at this time, Florio added, as punishments for front-office employees aren't as clear-cut in the NFL as they are for players. Keim's blood-alcohol concentration - which isn't currently known - will likely influence the outcome.

If recent history is any indication, the league and teams handle similar incidents for executives on a per-case basis. The Denver Broncos suspended executives Matt Russell and Tom Heckert for 30 days after separate DUI incidents in 2013. In 2014, the NFL suspended Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay for six games and fined him $500,000 for driving while impaired.

Keim has been the Cardinals' general manager since 2013.
