ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (August 20, 2013) -- Former Texas A&M and Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has been suspended six games by the NFL for violating its substance-abuse policy.
Miller released a statement through the NFL Players Association:
"The substances of abuse policy requires everyone to comply with the rules," Miller said. "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.
Miller will be eligible to return for the Broncos in Week 7 against the Indianapolis Colts.
