6-Game Suspension Expected for Denver Broncos LB Von Miller
He’s only been in the league for two seasons, but Von Miller of the Denver Broncos has quickly emerged as one of the league’s top linebackers as he’s already recorded 30 career sacks–including 18.5 during the 2012 season. Obviously, expectations are high for Miller and the Broncos once again heading into the 2013 season as the team looks to have another strong year after finishing 13-3 during the regular season in 2012, but it looks like that may not be as easy as they could be without their star linebacker.
Von Miller’s suspension for violation of the league’s substance policy is expected to be at least six games, per sources.

A possible four-game suspension for violating the league’s policy seemed likely at the beginning of the offseason for Miller, but to be suspended at least six games would be a huge blow for Denver’s defense. The team already had to adjust to life without Elvis Dumervil thanks to a simple mistake involving a fax machine, but to lose Miller for most of the first half of the regular season could end up being costly.
It will be interesting to hear more details about this case when they’re released, but this is certainly a shocking move heading into Week 3 of the preseason. On paper, the Broncos seemed like the favorite to finish on top of the AFC once again during the regular season considering the amount of talent they have on both offense and defense.
If Miller misses at least six games–that could easily have an impact on whether or not that happens with Denver.
