Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller left the game early in the game with a knee injury. He didn’t return to the game and it was initially suspected that he suffered a “significant” knee injury.
There is concern the injury is significant, although no determination will be made until after the tests. Miller suffered the injury in the second defensive series of the Broncos’ game here today against the Houston Texans.
The Broncos won’t know the extent of an injury until Miller has an MRI and other tests on Monday. As of now, the Broncos are fearing the worse.
From the Denver Post:
There is fear Miller suffered an injury to his anterior cruciate ligament, which would end his season. There also is hope tests will reveal his injury won’t be that severe and he might be able to brace up for the playoffs.
Miller’s teammates were concerned about the strong side linebacker’s injury.
“There’s always some concern when your teammate goes down, especially a guy like Von, who’s really starting to click now,” said Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey. “It’s unfortunate, but hopefully it’s something minor and something he can come back from real quick.”
If it is a torn ACL, Miller’s season would be over. His season got a late start as well as he served a six-game suspension for violating the league’s drug policy.
