Von Miller out for rest of Broncos' season with torn ACL

A bad season for Von Miller got much worse Monday. CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that Miller suffered a torn ACL on Sunday and is done for the season.

Miller left the Broncos' game against the Texans with a knee injury and didn't return.

Denver was hoping for the best when Miller underwent an MRI on Monday, but as La Canfora reported, the scan showed that Miller tore his ACL.

Miller missed the first six games of the season after being suspended for substance abuse.

The Broncos defense hasn't exactly been stout throughout the season; losing Miller will only make it more difficult for them once the playoffs get here.

Denver has given up 25.7 points per game (22nd in the NFL) and 362.7 yards per game (also 22nd) in 2013.

Miller, 24, has five sacks in nine games in 2013, three forced fumbles and a pass deflection. Following his suspension, he took a few games to get going but had begun to look like the Von Miller of old before Sunday's injury.
