Denver Broncos star linebacker Von Miller says he’s ‘back’ after dealing with a knee injury the past couple of weeks, and the timing is ideal.
Denver Broncos star outside linebacker Von Miller told Drew Lock to ‘remember’ him when he became a big deal before the rookie quarterback made his first start.
Unfortunately, Miller wasn’t able to be on the field for Lock’s regular-season debut with the Broncos a couple of weeks ago as he suffered a knee injury and just didn’t feel good enough on gameday against Los Angeles to be the Von we all know he’s capable of being.
Even leading up to Denver’s game against the Houston Texans last week, the Texas native and former Super Bowl 50 MVP was a game-time decision to play, and he ended up toughing it out and playing around 80 percent according to Broncos head coach Vic Fangio.
Miller spoke to the media ahead of the Broncos’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs and was asked to update his knee injury and how he feels.
Von being back is great news and ideal timing for the Broncos, who are getting ready for the biggest game of their season against the Kansas City Chiefs.
No, this game doesn’t likely have playoff implications for the Broncos as they would need a number of uncontrollable factors to fall in their favor to make the postseason at this point, but they haven’t been mathematically ruled out and they haven’t beaten the Chiefs since week two of the 2015 season.
The Broncos are due, and they’re going to need all hands on deck, especially considering the number of season-ending injuries they’ve had to go through defensively.
Having Von Miller at or even close to 100 percent is going to be critical for this game, and the Broncos have an opportunity to get a much-needed win against a divisional opponent in their final road game of the 2019 season.
Then, the Broncos will return home to face the Lions and Raiders to cap off the season.
Miller had a sack taken away from him in the Texans game as he was wrongfully called offsides, and he’s had a down year for sacks as it is with six in 12 games along with 14 quarterback hits.
Von is still a playmaker for Denver’s defense. There would be no better time for us to see him with a patented strip-sack than against the Kansas City Chiefs.
