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.

Broncos' Von Miller: Dealing with elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Vic Fangio said Thursday that Miller is dealing with an elbow injury of uncertain severity, Jeff Legwold of reports.

Miller will likely have to undergo further medical evaluation before the nature and severity of his injury can be disclosed. The 31-year-old will have more than three weeks to retake the field ahead of the team's season-opener against Tennessee.

Broncos' Von Miller: Recovers from COVID-19 case
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (illness) announced via his official Twitter account Thursday that he's tested negative for COVID-19.

Miller first announced his case of COVID-19 on April 16, but it now looks as though the star pass rusher has recovered and returned to health. The Broncos have already picked up Miller's $18 million contract option for 2020, setting him up to reprise his usual role as a pillar of the team's linebacker corps.

Broncos' Von Miller: Confirmed case of COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller has a confirmed case of COVID-19, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Per the report, Miller is "home resting and in good spirits" and "plans to speak publicly" Friday. The linebacker recorded 46 tackles and eight sacks in 15 contests with the Broncos last season.

Broncos' Von Miller: Staying in Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Elway said Monday that the Broncos will pick up Miller's $18 million contract option for 2020, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports.

Miller's 2020 option includes $6 million guaranteed. Next season, the three-time All-Pro will enter the fifth year of the six-year, $114.5 million contract extension he signed in 2016. Miller appeared in 15 contests in 2019 while battling a lingering knee injury for much of the year, compiling 46 tackles (33 solo), a team-leading eight sacks and two defended passes. The star pass rusher will benefit from the return of fellow outside linebacker Bradley Chubb (knee) come 2020.

Broncos' Von Miller: Ready for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game at Kansas City, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Miller played through the MCL sprain Week 14 and was limited to 59 percent of defensive snaps, but he appears to be much healthier entering Week 15. The 30-year-old may not end up seeing his usual full workload, but he seems likely to see the field more than last week.

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

Miller (knee) said Thursday that his MCL sprain is "way better than it was last week," Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Miller played through his knee injury during Week 14's win over the Texans, in which he notched three tackles (one solo) despite playing a season-low 59 percent of snaps on defense. The veteran pass rusher also said "I shouldn't have any problems playing on Sunday" in Kansas City. While it's certainly good news that any uncertainty surrounding the All-Pro's availability has dissipated, it remains to be seen whether he'll be limited at all versus the Chiefs.
