Miller, along with teammate Phillip Lindsay, has made the Pro Bowl, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Overshadowed by Denver's collective struggles has been that Miller already has the second most sacks in a season in his career, 14.5 through 14 games. He has some work to do to even match 2012's 18.5, but he has a great opportunity to eat into the gap Sunday against an Oakland offense surrendering the third most sacks in the league at 3.4 per game.
Miller recorded two solo tackles and a sack in Saturday's 17-16 loss to Cleveland. Miller now has a sack in eight of his last nine games and continues to demonstrate why he's one of the elite defensive players in the game. The 29-year-old's 14 total sacks on the year are the most he's had since 2014. He still has an outside shot at his career-high of 18 and will seek to keep chipping away at the mark Week 16 at Oakland.
Miller recorded a sack and an interception in Sunday's 23-22 win against the Chargers. Miller's only tackle was a big one, as he was able to bring down Philip Rivers for his 10th sack of the year. Miller also picked off Rivers in the third quarter and returned it for 42 yards, which ultimately led to a three-yard touchdown run by Royce Freeman. The 29-year-old has already tied his sack total from 2017, as he continues to prove he's one of the best pass rushers in the game.
Miller (knee) does not expect to wear a knee brace Week 11, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Miller seems to have made good use of Denver's bye week, as he appears to be fully recovered from a lingering knee injury sustained during a Week 8 loss to the Chiefs. The star linebacker has recorded nine sacks this season and will look to build upon that total during Sunday's tilt against the Chargers.
Miller recorded two tackles and one sack during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Texans. Miller entered the game with concern surrounding the status of his knee, which had a brace during Friday's practice, but the linebacker didn't sustain any setbacks on the field, and he even said his knee felt better as the game went on, according to Troy Renck of Denver 7 News. With nine sacks through the first nine games of the season, Miller is entering the Texans' Week 10 bye as one of the most productive pass rushers leaguewide.
