UNITED STATES—Von Miller of the Denver Broncos is facing a six-game suspension for violation of the league’s substance policy. The sides are still negotiating as representatives of the Denver Broncos linebacker are trying to get the ban reduced to four games.

The announcement is expected sometime this week. Miller is not likely to go forward with an appeal. Miller met last Thursday with the NFL Players Association with hope that he could reduce the suspension. The test that triggered the suspension contained a diluted sample. It happened after Miller was asked to provide a test before an off-season practice and Miller spilled the sample.

 

The Broncos open the regular season September 5 against the Baltimore Ravens in a Thursday night game. Miller, 24, had 30 sacks in his first two seasons including 18.5 in 2012.
