Despite being pulled from the Chargers game, Broncos rookie Von Miller still sits a top ESPN’s Rookie Watch. He’s even ahead of Cam Newton on the list.
Miller was yanked from the Broncos 4-3 base defense on Sunday after missing a couple of assignments. John Fox pulled the rookie in the first half and inserted veteran Mario Haggan into the mix.
“Miller didn’t play a ton of snaps due to injury and only saw the field in Week 5 during passing situations. But he did notch yet another sack. Denver’s bye could do him a lot of good after his worst game as a professional.” – Matt Williamson (ESPN)
Miller has five sacks in five games and leads the Broncos in QB takedowns.
