NFL officials will meet Aug. 15 with representatives of Broncos linebacker Von Miller to discuss his case of an alleged drug violation, according to a league source.
While the date of the meeting between parties has been set, the particulars have not yet been formalized. Still to be determined is whether there will be a formal hearing, a preliminary discussion, or whether Miller will be present.
Miller is facing a four-game suspension for allegedly violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
While some form of hearing will be held Aug. 15, a ruling on Miller's appeal is not expected for several more days. A ruling is expected before the Broncos open the season with a Thursday night, Sept. 5 game against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens.

According to @mikeklis, Von Miller appeal set for next Thursday. I'm told they're pretty confident he can win it.
