Broncos' Von Miller: Looks healthy at OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) looked healthy at Monday's practice and handled a full assortment of on-field cuts and jukes, Sean Keeler of The Denver Post reports.

Miller, who turned 33 in March, didn't suit up for a single game last season as the result of a dislocated peroneal tendon. The surgery he underwent Sept. 11 carried a recovery timeline of 5-to-6 months, and his workload at OTAs is an indication that he's returned to full health without any setbacks. Miller is set to account for $23.2 million of the Broncos' cap space during the 2021 campaign, after which he'll become a free agent.

Broncos' Von Miller: Gets contract guarantee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos are exercising a $7 million guarantee on Miller's (ankle) $18 million salary for 2021, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

There was talk of negotiating a lower salary for the final year of Miller's contract, but the Broncos apparently are willing to keep his deal in place now that the pass rusher isn't facing legal charges from a recent investigation by the Parker (Col.) Police Department. Miller should be ready for training camp, considering his dislocated peroneal tendon came with a recovery timeline of 5-to-6 months. He had surgery Sept. 11 and began running in early December.

Broncos' Von Miller: No charges filed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) will have no charges filed against him stemming from an investigation by the Parker (Col.) Police Department, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Miller had been subject to an investigation for unspecified allegations by the Parker Police Department since mid-January, but the District Attorney's office from 18th Judicial District has now decided not to file any charges. Broncos general manager George Paton recently announced that he wants to bring Miller back for 2021, per Aric DiLalla of the team's official site, and the resolution of the veteran linebacker's legal situation could smooth out negotiations. Miller's anticipated cap hit for 2021 is $22.2 million, too rich a figure for a player coming off a completely missed season due to a dislocated peroneal tendon. With Justin Simmons having just received Denver's franchise tag, it looks like Miller's negotiations will have to revolve around a revised multi-year deal that would reduce his cap hit.

Broncos' Von Miller: In GM's 2021 plans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos general manager George Paton said of Miller (ankle) on Thursday, "We want to bring Von back," Aric DiLalla of the team's official site reports.

Miller was under investigation from the Parker (Colo.) Police Department during January and February, but allegations against the 31-year-old remain unspecified and no charges have been filed. While Paton shows deference to the ongoing legal proceedings by labeling the matter a "serious situation," he's simultaneously considering avenues that would keep the Super Bowl 50 MVP in the Mile High City. Miller's anticipated 2021 cap hit of $22.2 million is disproportionate for a player who missed all of last season because of a dislocated peroneal tendon in his ankle, and who the year prior registered his lowest sack total (eight) over a campaign with at least 10 game appearances. A revised multi-year deal -- consisting of a reduced per-season cap hit -- may be the ideal resolution for both sides, but Miller's unresolved legal situation adds a component of uncertainty to negotiations.

Broncos' Von Miller: Subject of investigation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Douglas County (Colo.) District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday it has not yet made a decision on whether to charge Miller, who was under investigation from the Parker Police Department for unspecified allegations, Zac Stevens of reports.

Parker Police confirmed Jan 15. that Miller was the subject of an investigation, though it declined to reveal the nature of the case. The investigation has since been completed, and the police department submitted its results to the DA's office for review. The Broncos, who said in January they wouldn't comment further on Miller's legal situation until more information became available, will have to decide by March 17 whether to retain the linebacker in 2021. Miller, who turns 32 in March, will be owed a $7 million roster bonus if the Broncos exercise his 2021 club option.

Broncos' Von Miller: Contract situation undetermined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos are still deciding whether to exercise Miller's (ankle) $17.5 million option for 2021, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

While Dan Graziano of considers it "likely" the Broncos elect to decline Miller's 2021 option, the possibility remains that the two sides work out a revised deal. The three-time All-Pro is due a $7 million bonus in mid-March, meaning there will be a discussion between Miller and the front office before that point. Miller is coming off a lost 2020 campaign, having failed to make a single appearance after suffering a dislocated peroneal tendon in his ankle during an early-September practice. He posted eight sacks over 15 appearances in 2019 after reaching 10-plus sacks in five straight seasons between 2014 and 2018.

Broncos' Von Miller: Starts running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Miller (ankle) started running last week but isn't expected to play in Sunday's game against the Bills, Zac Stevens of reports.

A couple of weeks back, Fangio suggested that Miller's potential return is a "moot point." There remains a slim chance that he could still return this season, especially with the playoffs out of reach. It's nevertheless an encouraging sign that Miller is able to run just three months after suffering a dislocated peroneal tendon in his ankle, an injury which typically takes a 5-to-6 month recovery. The 31-year-old should be at 100 percent for the 2021 campaign.

Broncos' Von Miller: Return unlikely this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) still hasn't been cleared to practice and coach Vic Fangio referred to his status as "a moot point at this point" Wednesday, Kyle Newman of the Denver Post reports.

With the playoffs almost certainly out of reach, there's little reason for the 4-7 Broncos to rush Miller back this season, and Fangio seems to be hinting that the team won't do so. Miller will set his sights on recovering fully so he can hit the ground running for the 2021 season.

Broncos' Von Miller: Making progress in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Monday that Miller (ankle) is "progressing well" but won't practice this week, Zac Stevens of reports.

The 31-year-old is still recovering from September surgery that repaired a dislocated peroneal tendon, a procedure that typically requires a 5-to-6 month recovery. Fangio explained further that it's still too early to tell whether the star linebacker will return this season. If the Broncos are out of playoff contention, however, it seems unlikely that they'll rush Miller back.

Broncos' Von Miller: Sheds walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) was spotted without a walking boot on his left foot Thursday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Miller has taken on some leadership and coaching duties while on injured reserve, but he still hasn't been cleared to actually resume handling practice reps. Still, it's encouraging to see him consistently getting involved in some capacity. While it's also good news that the veteran pass rusher has managed to discard his walking boot, he still appears to be targeting a mid-December return.

Broncos' Von Miller: Sports boot at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) was spotted coaching his fellow outside linebackers while wearing a walking boot in practice Wednesday, Troy Renck of ABC Denver7 reports.

It's nice to see Miller taking on a leadership role and contributing however he can while recovering from his ankle injury, but his walking boot suggests he's still nowhere near returning to game action. Miller has been targeting a mid-December return, so it will likely take him a few more weeks to shed the boot.

Broncos' Von Miller: Return uncertain for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Miller (ankle) is "right where he should be" in his recovery from surgery on his dislocated peroneal tendon but added that it's too early to tell whether Miller will be able to play this year, Zac Stevens of DNVR Sports reports.

Miller has been targeting a mid-December return, but the surgery he underwent on Sept. 11 typically requires a four- to six-month recovery process. While the highly competitive pass rusher will surely do everything in his power to come back late in the season if the Broncos are making a playoff push, such a scenario seems unlikely given the team's 1-3 record at this point. If Denver has been eliminated from playoff contention by the time Miller's nearing a return, the team will likely play it safe and hold him out until next season.

Broncos' Von Miller: Targeting mid-December return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Broncos' Von Miller: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Broncos will place Miller (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Miller's move to IR is merely a formality, as the edge rusher is expected to miss most, if not all, of the 2020 season after undergoing surgery last week to address a dislocated peroneal tendon. While Miller's procedure typically carries a recovery timeline of 5-to-6 months, he plans to attack his rehab aggressively with the hope of getting back on the field at the tail end of the regular season or during the playoffs, should the Broncos qualify. Denver would have to designate him to return from IR at some point to facilitate his eventual return to the 53-man roster.

Broncos' Von Miller: Bound for surgery, injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Miller, who suffered a dislocated peroneal tendon during practice earlier this week, will also shift to injured reserve in the near future, per Zac Stevens of Though the star pass rusher will technically be eligible to return from IR after a minimum of three weeks, his ankle procedure carries a recovery timetable of several months. The 31-year-old could still have a chance for a late-season return, depending on how quickly his rehab progresses.

Broncos' Von Miller: Likely facing 5-to-6 month recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (ankle) was diagnosed Wednesday with a dislocated peroneal tendon, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport notes that Miller's likeliest option will be to undergo surgery, which would give him a recovery timetable between five and six months, though a three-month recovery could be possible in an "absolute best-case scenario." While it's encouraging for Miller that the window on a late-season return hasn't completely closed, season-ending surgery is still the most likely outcome after the linebacker injured the ankle in Tuesday's practice. In any case, losing Miller for any amount of time will be a huge blow for Denver's pass-rush effort.

Broncos' Von Miller: Surgery to be ordered up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller is slated to undergo surgery after suffering a torn tendon in his ankle at Tuesday's practice, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

Due to blizzard conditions in the Denver metro area, the Broncos held practice indoors, a session that ended with Miller sustaining the freak injury. Following an MRI, we're starting to get a clearer picture of the issue, but he'll visit Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay on Thursday to get a second opinion, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The meeting very well may confirm what has been suspected: Miller's 2020 season is over.

Broncos' Von Miller: May have season-ending injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller injured an ankle tendon during Tuesday's practice and likely will require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Instead of the customary outdoor session, the Broncos held practice indoors Tuesday due to an ongoing blizzard. According to Schefter, the team was only in shells, but still the worst happened as Miller suffered the injury in the final moments. If Miller's season is over before it can start, Denver will be left with a pass-rush group of Bradley Chubb (knee) and not much else, making it a prime candidate to bring in reinforcements.

Broncos' Von Miller: Serious injury feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller sustained a lower leg injury during Tuesday's practice, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

There's already been much speculation regarding the injury, including it impacted Miller's Achilles (per Garafolo) or ankle (per Adam Schefter of ESPN), and that it likely is season ending (per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network). Ultimately, the diagnosis and eventually the prognosis will be determined by the results of an MRI and other testing.

Broncos' Von Miller: Participates in practice Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (elbow) returned to practice Sunday, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Miller missed a couple days of practice, but his swift return to the practice field signals that it wasn't a serious injury. Miller and Bradley Chubb (knee) are both expected to be ready for Week 1 and form one of the league's best pass-rushing tandems. They combined for 26.5 sacks in 2018 when they both played 16 games.
