BRISTOL, CT -- Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller's appeals hearing on a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL's substance-abuse policy will not be conducted Thursday, as tentatively scheduled, according to sources.

Miller's case has "complications" that has resulted in the league and NFL Players Association working to resolve on the player's behalf, the sources added. No other specifics were provided.

The NFL has not announced any suspension for Miller because his appeal is pending.

With 30 sacks over the past two seasons, including 18.5 in 2012, Miller would leave a significant hole in the Broncos' defensive plan.

If he loses his appeal, he'll miss games against the Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders and Philadelphia Eagles at home and New York Giants on the road.

Miller, meanwhile, was arrested Sunday at the Centennial Gun Club, a facility that's near the Broncos' practice facility in south suburban Denver, on an outstanding traffic warrant for failing to appear for a court appearance on Dec. 31. During an October traffic stop, was charged with careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance.

Miller was released on a $1,000 bond Sunday, an off day for the Broncos.
