Broncos’ Von Miller day-to-day after undergoing MRI on knee

Von Miller

Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller suffered a right knee injury during his team’s loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and underwent an MRI on Monday, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.

Miller is listed as day-to-day, and the good news is that head coach Vic Fangio said that he is “fine at this point.”

Miller logged three tackles and a sack against the Bills. On the season overall, he has tallied 35 tackles and six sacks, putting him on pace for one of the least productive seasons of his career.

Other than the 2013 campaign, when he played in just nine games and finished with five sacks, Miller has never logged less than double-digit sacks in a single season.

Right now, Miller is on pace for around nine sacks, and if this knee injury keeps him sidelined, that number will obviously dip.

The 30-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Texas A&M, was originally selected by the Broncos with the second overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft.

He played in 15 games during his rookie campaign, totaling 64 tackles and 11.5 sacks en route to the Pro Bowl. The following year, he racked up 68 tackles, 18.5 sacks and six forced fumbles, making another Pro Bowl appearance and earning a First-Team All-Pro selection.

Overall, Miller has made the Pro Bowl seven times, only missing out in his abbreviated 2013 season. He has also notched First-Team All-Pro honors three times.

Denver is just 3-8 on the season and will head back home to host the Los Angeles Chargers next Sunday.
