According to NFL.com‘s Albert Breer, the MRI results showed no structural damage and that his reconstructed ACL from 2008 appeared to be fine. He will be reevaluated today.

Broncos’ Von Miller Arrested

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was arrested Sunday on a failure-to-appear warrant according to NFL.com and the NFL Network. Miller was release on $1,000 bond. This warrant was issued after he failed to appear at a December 31 arraignment on careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance charges.

Von Miller is also facing a four game suspension for violating the NFL.com‘s substance abuse policy. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Miller was scheduled to appeal those charges mid-August.

St. Louis Rams’ Jo-Lonn Dunbar Suspended

Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar has been suspended without pay for the first four games of the regular season for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The NFL Network’s Michelle Beisner reported that a Rams source told her that the failed test was not because of PED use.

Dunbar said this in a statement via the Associated Press:

“I just want to say that I did not take a performance-enhancing drug. I mistakenly took something that prompted a failed drug test. I sincerely apologize to my teammates (and) the organization. I am deeply saddened by this. But I plan to serve my four-game suspension and get back to playing football as soon as possible.”
