KUSA - According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will likely be suspended as soon as Monday for at least six games.
Miller is accused of violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
"Miller is not likely to go forward with an appeal ... Miller met last Thursday with the NFL Players Association with some hope he could have the suspension reduced to four games, sources said," ESPN reports.
Miller has 30 sacks in his first two NFL seasons and a four-game suspension would leave a gaping hole in Denver's defense.
Miller was also arrested Aug. 11 at a firearms shop near the Broncos' practice facility on a warrant for failing to appear in court on Dec. 31 for an October traffic stop in which he was charged with careless driving and not having a license or proof of insurance.
