Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy will sit out the remainder of the season.

He's been away from the microphone since August 15 when his son Jared Remy was arrested for the murder of his girlfriend Jennifer Martel.

Remy issued a statement saying he's full of grief for the Martel family:

I am full of grief for the Martel family. My thoughts and prayers continue to go out to them. My wife and I are sick about this senseless tragedy. It’s clear this isn’t the time for me to return to broadcasting Red Sox games.

According to WCVB, the president of NESN supports Remy in his decision and said that when he is ready to return, he will.
