Broncos’ Von Miller questionable vs. Chargers
It looks like Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock will be making his first career start against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, but the Broncos could be without a defensive stalwart in the process.
Per Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk, Broncos pass rusher Von Miller is listed as questionable for the team’s Week 13 tilt due to a knee injury that has been plaguing him throughout the week.
Miller missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but did some things in practice on Friday, so it remains to be seen if he will suit up this weekend.
It should be noted that head coach Vic Fangio said on Thursday that if Miller is “healthy enough to play and feels good about it, he’ll play,” so Fangio could be putting the decision somewhat in Miller’s hands.
Since entering the NFL in 2011, Miller has missed just eight games, with seven of those coming in 2013 mainly due to a suspension. Since then, he has played in 95 consecutive contests, including the playoffs.
Miller is also in danger of failing to record double-digit sacks for just the second time in his career.
In the 11 games he has played this season, Miller has logged 35 tackles and six sacks. Obviously, if he does not play against the Chargers, his chances of tallying 10 sacks will take a rather big hit based on his per-game production in 2019.
Miller has made five straight Pro Bowl appearances and has earned seven Pro Bowl selections overall while notching First Team All-Pro honors three times.
The Broncos are just 3-8 on the year.
