There will not be an appeals hearing for Von Miller today as it was first expected due to “complications”.
No appeals hearing today on Von Miller’s four-game suspension because of “complications,” per sources.

I wonder what the complications could have been? Is it because he was arrested for not appearing to court and failing to pay for some traffic tickets? Is it because he failed to show up for the appeals hearing? Is it because the Broncos fax machine is broken? I guess this thing will have to be rescheduled for a different time.
With Von Miller out of practice today, Nate Irving is getting the reps with the first team. If Miller were to miss the first 4 games of the year, Irving may be the guy to step in for Miller during that time.
Miller was suspended 4 games by the NFL for violating the league’s drug policy. He was attempting to appeal the suspension, but now has to wait till a later time to see the results of that. And the waiting game continues on.
