The NFL has suspended Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller four games for violating a league policy, as first reported by Adam Schefter. Schefter reports the suspension is in the appeals process.
Miller, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, is considered the Broncos' best defensive player and one of the NFL's best pass rushers, recording 18.5 sacks last season.
The Broncos' defense was already weakened by the loss of pass rusher Elvis Dumervil to the Ravens in the offseason.
