The Denver Post reports Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller will appeal his four-game suspension on Aug. 15. A decision from NFL officials is expected before the Sept. 8 opener against Baltimore.
Miller is facing a four-game suspension for an alleged violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. The Broncos' first four games are against the Ravens, Giants, AFC West rival Raiders and Eagles.
Miller, 24 , was third in the NFL last season with 18.5 sacks. The Broncos took him with the second overall pick in 2011.
More from the Post's Mike Klis:
"While the date of the meeting between parties has been set, the particulars have not yet been formalized. Still to be determined is whether there will be a formal hearing, a preliminary discussion, or whether Miller will be present."
