Broncos’ Von Miller appealing four-game suspension

USA Today Sports

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL policy, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The suspension is currently in the appeals process so it’s not certain that the suspension will stand.

If the suspension is upheld, Miller will miss games against the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles.

Miller had 18.5 sacks last season for the Broncos.

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Miller tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana during his rookie season of 2011.

Under NFL policy, testing positive for a recreational drug lands the player in a testing program, and a second positive test triggers a four-game suspension. Testing positive for a performance enhancing drug is met with an immediate suspension.

If Miller loses his appeal he will likely be replaced by stronside linebacker Shaun Phillips.
