Von Miller Will Be Suspended for Six Games: "I Made Mistakes"

By Jason Lisk

Von Miller will be suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy for six games, the NFL announced late Tuesday.

Klis also has Von Miller’s statement:

"“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 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’s Broncos, one of the favorites in the AFC, will have to find a pass rusher to disrupt Joe Flacco, Eli Manning, Mike Vick and Tony Romo.
