Von Miller Suspended Six Games

Mike Klis of the Denver Post reports that Broncos LB Von Miller will be suspended for six games for violating the league’s substance policy. Miller’s suspension will cost him $806,000 in 2013 salary.

Here’s a statement provided by Von Miller regarding his recent suspension:

“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 games against the Baltimore Ravens, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars.
