  As we wait for the Von Miller’s appeal to be heard by the NFL for violating the league’s drug policy, one of his Broncos teammates is confident he won’t be suspended, according to Lindsey Jones of USA TODAY Sports. Miller has filed an appeal with the NFL to get the suspension lifted, and though such wins are rare, those close to Miller believe he will eventually be cleared. A person with knowledge of Miller’s situation told USA TODAY Sports that the suspension was not the result of a failed drug test. “He didn’t test positive for anything,” the person said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because drug test results are to remain confidential. The NFL does not announce suspensions until after the appeal process is over. The person also confirmed a report from The Denver Post that Miller had tested positive for marijuana in 2011, Miller’s rookie season, a result that landed Miller in the league’s drug offender program. That program has several phases, and includes random, unannounced drug tests. Miller did claim this week that marijuana is no longer a part of his life.   I’ve also heard from many NFL agents that the league’s drug testing policy is very questionable.  So maybe he didn’t fail due to marijuana.     Need NFL Tickets?
