Broncos Pro Bowler Von Miller May Miss Ravens Opener


The Ravens already have former Bronco Elvis Dumervil on their side.

Now the Broncos may also be without another Pro Bowl pass rusher, Von Miller, when they face the Ravens in their season opener in Denver on Sept. 5.

Miller is facing a four-game suspension for violating NFL policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and other reports. The reports didn't specify the nature of the violation.

The two-time Pro Bowler is reportedly appealing the suspension, meaning his status for the Ravens game is not yet determined. But it could be a big loss for the Broncos.

Miller, 24, had 18.5 sacks last season, including a half sack against the Ravens in the divisional playoffs. Since he entered the league in 2011, only Minnesota's Jared Allen (34), San Francisco's Aldon Smith (33.5) and Dallas' DeMarcus Ware (31) have more sacks than Miller (30).

Miller's issue is the latest in what has been a turbulent offseason for the Broncos. Last week, Denver suspended two top personnel executives, Matt Russell and Tom Heckert, for DUI arrests.
