Miller (ankle) is working out daily under the Broncos' supervision and is hopeful to return from injured reserve in mid-December if Denver remains in playoff contention, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports.

The Pro Bowl linebacker was projected to miss four to six months after he underwent surgery Sept. 11 to address a dislocated peroneal tendon, an injury he suffered in a workout three days earlier. Though he remains in the early phases of his rehab process, Miller is apparently optimistic that he can cut nearly a full month off that projected recovery timeline to suit up for Denver before the regular season wraps up. He's still expected to remain confined to a walking boot for seven more weeks before transitioning to football activities, at which point he would still need more time to regain full strength in his left ankle.
