ESPN: Denver's Chris Harris Tears ACL

Rob Carr/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) --  Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris has a torn ACL and will miss the remainder of the postseason, according to ESPN and media reports.  

Harris left in the third quarter of Sunday's win over the San Diego Chargers with what was described as knee and ankle injuries.  An MRI on Monday morning revealed the torn ligament.

The Broncos have now lost two defensive starters to torn ACL's in the past month.  Pro Bowl linebacker Von Miller tore his right ACL last month in a win over the Houston Texans.  Once the swelling in his knee subsides, Harris is expected to have surgery to repair his knee and will be sidelined from six to nine months.  He will not participate in the team's offseason programs and would likely miss at least some of training camp.

Harris made Denver's roster in 2011 as an undrafted free agent and has been one of their most consistent defensive backs since.  He is tied for the team lead this season with three interceptions.

The Broncos face the New England Patriots on Sunday in the AFC championship game.

Report: Broncos LB Von Miller Out with Torn ACL

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) -- Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be out the remainder of the playoffs after an MRI confirmed that he tore his ACL in his left knee in Sunday's win over the Texans.

The two-time Pro Bowler suffered the injury midway through the first quarter and is expected to be out of the team's offseason program and likely some of training camp, according to sources.

Following the injury, Nate Irving came into the game for Miller and played well.

"People get sick of hearing me say it, but it's next man up, literally," Broncos head coach John Fox said after the game. "Nate Irving stepped in and did a very good job. Our team has been that way the whole season -- doesn't matter what phase of the game it is, even me taking a leave of absence [heart surgery] for four weeks.''

Miller played in only nine games this season after he was suspended for the first six games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The Broncos will take on the Oakland Raiders on Sunday needing a win to clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

ESPN: Von Miller Tried Cheating Drug Test

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Suspended Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller cheated his recent drug test with the help of a urine collector before each was caught, which will now change the way the NFL goes about its drug testing program, league sources told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter.

Miller was recently suspended for six games in wake of the news.  Originally the suspension was scheduled for only four games.

Sources told Schefter that the collector lived in Miami, where Miller spends his offseason, and that is where the two met. 

The collector then collected another person's urine specimen for Miller, but a second collector noticed the Pro Bowler was not in the city where his collection was supposed to have taken place, according to Schefter.

The NFL met with Drug Free Sport, which has developed a new fingerprinting technology that is also being used on the new IPhones, this movement may make it easier to avoid situations like Miller's in the future, reports Schefter.

Von Miller to Serve Six-Game Suspension 

John Leyba/The Denver Post(ENGLEWOOD, Colo.) -- Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be suspended six games for violation of the league's substance abuse policy. 

The league wanted a longer penalty for Miller, but the sides agreed to less than half the season.

"Although my suspension doesn't result from a positive test, there is no excuse for my violations of the rules," Miller said in a statement released by the Broncos.

 "During my time off the field, I will work tirelessly and focus exclusively on remaining in peak shape. I look forward to contributing immediately upon my return to the field and bringing a championship back to the people of Denver."

Miller's suspension will begin on August 30, and he will be eligible to return for the seventh game of the season on October 20. against the Indianapolis Colts.

During the suspension, Miller will not be allowed to practice with the Broncos, but is allowed to train at the team's facility. The suspension will cost him more than $800,000 of the $2.3 million he's scheduled to make this season.

Broncos' Von Miller Suspended Six Games

Grant Halverson/Getty Image(NEW YORK) -- Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller will be suspended at least six games for violation of the league's substance abuse policy, according to ESPN NFL insiders Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

Miller will most likely not appeal and take the suspension once it is officially handed down, according to Schefter.

"It's going to get resolved, one way or another. We certainly know what we want, but we are prepared for any possible scenario," Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning said last week about the looming possiblity Miller could be suspended.

"That's how you have to be. If you get all wrapped up in, 'Oh, it has to be this outcome,' and then it's not, now you're deflated, and you don't really have a plan B. Today was a good practice on the possibility that he might not be here. If that's the case, that is not going to be an excuse for our team. We have to find a way to do our jobs. We certainly hope that he's here," Manning continued.

Von Miller Tweets Broncos Will Win Super Bowl Title

Grant Halverson/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Denver linebacker Von Miller took to Twitter early Tuesday morning to guarantee the Broncos will win the Super Bowl championship next season. The 23-year-old Miller says he’s dedicating the 2013 campaign to his 6-year-old cousin, who recently emerged from a coma after a car accident in Texas.

Miller tweeted: “You can post this where ever..Denver broncos will win the Super Bowl 2013." That tweet followed the announcement of his cousin’s recovery.

The Broncos finished last season with a record of 13-3, earning the number one seed in the AFC playoffs. Their post-season push was derailed in the Divisional round when they fell to the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens in overtime, 38-35.

The Broncos defense did a great job in holding rookie running back Doug Martin to just 56 yards on 18 carries.
