Broncos' Miller denies using pot: 'I don't think I let my teammates down'
While we wait to see what happens with Von Miller's four-game suspension, he talked to the media for the first time this training camp.
Broncos linebacker Von Miller, who is facing a four-game suspension this year but is waiting on an appeal, met with the media Wednesday, and he said he doesn’t feel like he’s disappointed his teammates.
"I don't think I let my teammates down,” Miller said, via Broncos reporter Andrew Mason. “Everybody has tough moments."
It was reported that, aside from the unknown reason he's been suspended this season, Miller also tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana during his rookie season, and when he was asked Wednesday if smoking marijuana was a part of his life, he said, “Absolutely not."
Otherwise, there wasn’t much Miller said he could talk about.
"I'm obviously aware of the situation surrounding me, but out of respect for confidentiality ... I can't talk about it," he said. " … I can touch (on it) in more detail when the situation is resolved."
As for football, well, Miller is just ready to get back on the field.
"I'm focused. ... I can't wait for training camp to start tomorrow ... get started, run around and get back to football,” he said.
And it sounds like the Broncos first day of training camp will be a normal one for Miller. Coach John Fox said that it until he hears anything different regarding Miller’s possible suspension, Miller will get all the reps with the first team defense.
