According to sources, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. It is uncertain whether the suspension will stand because the case is still in the appeals process.

According to Mike Clis of the Denver Post, Miller tested positive for Marajuana and MDMA. This is the second incident. Miller also tested positive for amphetamines and steroids in 2011.

Miller spoke of the situation via Twitter on Monday: "Seeing reports abt. 4 game susp. I know I did nothing wrong. I'm sure this'll be resolved fairly. Disapp. Broncos have to open camp like this."

According to a league source, the Broncos knew of issues with Miller so today's news comes as no surprise to vice president of football operations John Elway and coach John Fox.

If the suspension does indeed stand, the Broncos could go after part of his signing bonus, which would amount to $860,812. Miller is still able to take part in workouts but will have to part ways with the team after the preseason is complete. He can rejoin the team on September 30th.
