NFL Suspends 20 9/4/13
NEW YORK - Denver All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is among 20 NFL players suspended for the beginning of the NFL season.
Miller will be out for six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Among the games he'll miss is Thursday night's against Super Bowl champion Baltimore.
Ravens defensive back Asa Jackson and Cincinnati defensive end DeQuin Evans have been suspended eight games, under the performance-enhancing drugs policy.
None of the 20 players has been suspended for violating the personal conduct policy, although Jets running back Mike Goodson was arrested in New Jersey in May on drugs and weapons charges and will miss four games for substance abuse. His case was sent to a grand jury.
