Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller likely will be suspended at least six games for violation of the league’s substance policy. At least, that’s the latest report coming from major media outlets, but as for the Broncos themselves, they don’t claim to know what suspension is in place for their All-Pro linebacker:
“We don’t know the suspension. There is no suspension,” Head coach John Fox said Monday. “At which time there is, we’ll report that. Anything else there is right now, really, is just talking heads.”
It’s still unclear as to what caused the suspension in the first place, but according to Adam Scefter, the positive test may have come as a result of Miller spilling a test sample he was attempting to give in a urine test:
In the test that triggered the suspension, multiple sources say Miller was flagged for a “diluted sample.” It happened after Miller was asked to provide a test before an offseason workout/practice and the sample was spilled, by Miller, before it was given to the collector. Miller was then asked at that time to provide another sample and he could not.
Houston Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak said the team got good news about newly-signed safety Ed Reed on Saturday after he spent time working with a hip specialist in Atlanta. Reed has reportedly progressed enough in his rehab that the team now has some hope that he’ll be healthy enough to take the field in Week 1.
Adrian Peterson will not be taking the same approach this year, as he’s expected to make his preseason debut for the Minnesota Vikings this week against the San Francisco 49ers. Vikings Head Coach Leslie Frazier says his plan is to get Peterson some game-action after sitting him during the first two preseason game.
