Report: Von Miller appeal scheduled for August 15

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.
