09:16 AM ET 07.27 | The Denver Broncos have never lacked for confidence in Von Miller on the field, and that confidence has not wavered now that the star linebacker is participating in training camp under the threat of a four-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy. 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. According to the NFL's drug policy, passed by the league and players' union in 2010, players in the second phase of the program also can be suspended for failing to comply with the terms of the policy. That could include a player missing a drug test or providing a diluted urine sample.

Do You Have Anything To Hide, Bro?

Well, if he did not test positive for anything, then he either did not take the test or provided a "diluted" sample. Takes your pick. Or, that guy that kept Braun's sample in his garage overnight got transferred.

This is all so easily explained. Look, the guy was a Chickenology major at Texas A&M. Honest. We all know chickens are now given growth hormones and the like to grow bigger, faster. He raises chickens in his back yard. Honest. He no doubt accidentally got some chicken feed on his hands, forgot to wash them, wook a whiz, sent the sample in and voila! A simple case of mistaken identity. Your honor, it happened eggsactly this way.

What goes on between an Aggie and his chicken is his own business.

So what came first?

I'm surprised at how many in the Bronco's org have come out on behalf of VM. All the way up to Peyton and Coach Fox.

If what VM did was miss a test, the NFL has to uphold the suspension or "misses" will then be "ok" by precedent.

I'd like to see it get overturned, but not holding my breath.

Poor guy! Didn't drink enough water before bed and couldn't go wee-wee in the morning so ... he stayed home.

I'd guess the CBA covers everything having to do with testing quite succinctly.

I bet a lot of players haven't read a word of it.

Or spell 'at all' more likely.

The Redskins just had their 8th player suspended in the last 22 months. Shanahans opine was " We have to do a better job of educating our players."

What does that mean? Ya can take it a lot of ways.

For one thing it means he is not pregnant. Anything means anything I suppose.
