Broncos star Von Miller likely to receive six-game suspension
Broncos linebacker Von Miller is going to get suspended. The question is for how long and reports suggest 'at least' a six-game suspension that could be announced soon.
UPDATE Tuesday, 5 p.m. ET: Von Miller was suspended six games by the NFL.
The Broncos are playing the waiting game with Von Miller, hoping to find out when his suspension will be announced. And there's a good chance it will happen soon, a source with knowledge of the situation told CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.
The only question is how many games Miller will miss? The NFL was seeking eight games or more, but the NFLPA, which is taking an active role in Miller's defense, is looking for a reduced sentence of four games or less. La Canfora reports that the two parties will likely meet in the middle, landing on a six-game suspension.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen was the first to report Miller's facing a suspension of "at least" six games in 2013.
The Broncos are scheduled to play the Ravens, Giants, Raiders, Eagles, Cowboys and Jaguars in those first six games.
The initial report of Miller's suspension leaked out in late July and it involved a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. Miller claimed he did nothing wrong and the All Pro linebacker was supposed to have his appeal heard last week.
However, the appeal was apparently postponed and now we find ourselves in a situation similar to Josh Gordon's where the sides are poised to cut a deal and move on from this.
