Report: Von Miller appeal scheduled for August 15

Von Miller AP

We don’t know all the details about why Broncos linebacker Von Miller is facing a four-game suspension from the NFL, but we know Miller is appealing the ban and there’s now a report about when that appeal will be heard.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Miller’s appeal will be heard on August 15. The NFLPA said that Miller’s suspension was not for a violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy, which suggests it falls under the substance abuse policy.

The most recent round of reports about the suspension said that it was not for a positive drug test and Miller insists that he has done nothing wrong, making a specific point of saying that he doesn’t use marijuana when he answered questions about his plans to appeal the suspension.

That’s a lot of reports with very few facts, outside of the one that has the Broncos spending the first month of the season without their best defensive player if Miller’s appeal is unsuccessful. It looks like we’ll take a step toward finding out that verdict in the near future.

    Not disclosing the details makes it look like they’re hiding something awful … which is probably worse than just saying what it was.

    Well thats weird, because doing nothing wrong generally doesn’t earn you a 4 game suspension. Whatever the situation, I’m sure it’s all someone else’s fault…

    Everyone in jail is innocent.

    Aldon Smith, the guy thats a one trick pony and can’t get to the qb without Justin Smith. The guy that had six sacks against a crappy bears o line which was comparable to a high school line. Von Miller is a complete linebacker and the best go home Aldon and the guy who doesnt know what he’s talking about.

    The guy was on a USO trip in Afghanistan. Forgot to file the paperwork with the league, so he missed his appointment. Nothing to see here.

    He looks about 45 years old in that pic.

    It’s the Broncos and the NFL needs them to win so there will be no suspension. C’mon Manning is on this team. It makes them immune from Godell’s selective enforcement of rules.

    Von Millers name will be cleared!!!

    Niners fan who thinks no one cares about the Broncos. The stadium last night was half empty, that would never happen in Denver. I am sure you will say the game was sold out but thiry thousand people came dressed as empty seats.
