Von Miller might miss first 4 games

Von Miller, of the Denver Broncos, has been tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana.

Adam Schefter of ESPN, has reported that Miller will be facing a four-game suspension for violating a league policy.  Which policy this is, is still in question.  It could either fall under the RED policy or the substance-abuse policy.

Mike Florio, of Profootballtalk.com has stated that…

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Miller has violated both policies.  Per Klis, Miller tested positive for amphetamines and marijuana in 2011.  The former, which is the active ingredient in Adderall and other related substances, would trigger an automatic four-game suspension under the PED policy.  The latter would require at least three violations before a suspension arises.

Miller has filed an appeal and it is currently under review.  The time that the appeal will take is also in question.

What is also interesting in this case is that the abuse came back in 2011 when Tebowmania was at its highest.  It seems that the broken policy has been swept under the rug until now.  The only reason it is coming to light now is that someone has blabbed the information which could now bring a title of cheater to Miller.
