Denver, CO (Sports Network) - Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller's camp will get the chance to appeal his four-game suspension on August 15.

The Denver Post, citing a league source, reported on Thursday that Miller's representatives will meet with NFL officials on that day to discuss the case, regarding an alleged violation of the league's drug policy.

Miller was hit with the ban in late July, but league sources indicate that it is not because of testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug.

According to the paper, details of the meeting have not been finalized such as whether or not Miller himself needs to be present. Options on the table include a formal hearing or preliminary discussion.

Whatever occurs, the Post revealed that a decision is expected to be made before the Broncos open up their 2013 season on Sept. 5 against the defending champion Baltimore Ravens.

Miller was the second overall pick in the 2011 draft. The Texas A&M product recorded 64 tackles and 11 1/2 sacks in his rookie season and was named the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year.

The 24-year-old Miller built on his impressive rookie campaign by posting 68 tackles and 18 1/2 sacks in 2012.
