Von Miller Suspended For 6 Games


Through the NFL Network's Albert Breer: He is reporting, through confirmation from two sources, that a diluted urine sample caused the violation.

And the HQ will also bet that the whole not-showing-up-in-court-over-the-traffic-violation didn't help matters either...

But that's just us...

Here's comments from last month on his recent troubles...
Here's Miller's statement after being suspended for 6 games for violating the National Football League's substance abuse policy: "The Substances of Abuse policy requires everyone to comply with the rules. Although my suspension doesn’t result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules. I made mistakes and my suspension has hurt my team, Broncos fans, and myself. I am especially sorry for the effect of my bad decisions on others. I will not make the same mistakes about adhering to the policy in the future. During my time off the field, I will work tirelessly and focus exclusively on remaining in peak shape. I look forward to contributing immediately upon my return to the field and bringing a championship back to the people of Denver."
Miller will miss home games against against the Ravens, Raiders, Eagles and Jaguars as well as road games against the Giants and Cowboys. Miller will be allowed to return to action on October 20, a Sunday night game at the Indianapolis Colts.

He will lose out on $806,000 in salary, but he can still be an active member of the team during the exhibition season.
