  • Von Miller facing 4 game suspension?

    I don't know if this has been posted yet or not but according to Vic who's doing the morning show on 104.3 The Fan one of the Broncos defensive starters is facing a 4 game suspension for substance abuse. They say it would greatly impact the team since its one of the better players. Looks like we're beating ourselves even before the season started.

    Just read on Facebook that the substance is marijuana, and that players are sending text messages to Vic because they're unaware as to who it is. Any truth to this?

      Looks good on paper, but this is just stupid.

        That's what I heard as well. The substance is apparently marijuana and the players are also unaware of this incident. No one wants to break the news until the player or the league do it.

          and what I mean by "looks good on paper" I mean the players we've acquired and our roster. But Good lord this is just ridiculous.

          Hope it's somebody easily replaceable.

            This is getting pretty bad. You get a suspension on your 3rd offense so this has happened before its just that no one knew about it. The suspension is in the appeals process so we'll see what will happen.

                "Prominent" Defensive starter Suspended

                4 game suspension for the substance
                abuse policy for a big defensive starter that could shake things up per Vic Lombardi on 104.3 the Fan.

                News should officially come out later but for respect to the player he hasn't named him.

                Who do you think it is?

                  As long as it wasn't Von I don't think it will be too big of an issue.

                  If I had to guess I would say Wolfe, Irving, Harris, Knighton, Adams are the most likely starter types. Maybe Ayers.

                    Dang.

                    Twitter seems to indicate it's for pot, so at least not performance enhancing. But that's twitter, so I'll wait for something official.

                    I'll be relieved if it's "anyone but Von".

                      We have a lot of depth at the linebacker spots so hopefully if it's a linebacker then the next man up can fill the void.

                      I'd be extremely dissapointed if it is Von but at least we'd have Phillips come in for 4 games and help a little.

                      I feel like if our D can hold a team under 20 we'll win. Our offense is built to score 20+ a game. That'll be the case especially the first 4 games.




                      My guess though is Vickerson that'd be a tough spot to fill not a whole lot of depth in the inside.

                        Too many "things" going on lately. I don't like this at all, not a good vibe days before TC regardless of who it is.

                              Schefter reporting it is in fact Von Miller.

                              Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 8m
                              So Denver lost Elvis Dumervil to Baltimore and is now facing prospect of losing Von Miller to suspension.
