Broncos linebacker Von Miller left in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Texans with a left knee injury. He was quickly ruled out, which means that Peyton Manning and the NFL's best offense will have to find a way to outpace a Houston team currently on a 12-game losing streak.

No word on the severity of Miller's injury, but the 2011 first-round pick is one of the league's most tenacious pass rushers on a defense that has struggled at times this season. He had 11.5 sacks as a rookie, 18.5 in 2012, and managed five through eight games this season after serving a six-game suspension.
