IRVING, Texas – As the Cowboys get ready for Saturday’s preseason game against Cincinnati, some inside the organization might have an eye on what is happening with Denver’s Von Miller.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter, Miller is attempting to have a possible six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy cut down to four games.
Why should the Cowboys care?
They host Denver on Oct. 6 at AT&T Stadium in Week 5.
If Miller fails to get the suspension reduced, then Tony Romo will not have to face a player with 30 sacks in his first two seasons and 18.5 in 2012. Add that to the Broncos’ loss of Elvis Dumervil thanks to a contractual snafu and Denver’s pass rush will look a lot different.
If the suspension is four games, then Miller, a DeSoto native, will get the chance to open his season in front of family and friends.
