The Denver Broncos LB Von Miller could be facing a 6-game suspension. It was originally thought that he would be getting a 4-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy.
Sides still in discussions on Von Miller suspension, and he's still hoping for four games, but six sounds more likely now.

Von Miller planned on appealing the 4-game suspension and that process had been delayed, but now it seems that he will have to try appealing a possible at least 6-game suspension.
Miller is not likely to go forward with an appeal, though all sides were trying to finalize the suspension’s conditions.
Miller met last Thursday with the NFL Players Association with some hope he could have the suspension reduced to four games, sources said, but another source familiar with the process was convinced it will be at least a six-game suspension. – ESPN
The Broncos have already been struggling to replace the loss of LB Elvis Dumervil. Now they will have to start planning on having Miller sidelined for the first part of the year.
