AFC Notes: Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs



  • Per Ryan O’Halloran of the Denver Post, Broncos HC Vic Fangio is “not optimistic” OLB Von Miller will play in the final two games of the season. 
  • Miller has started running as he rehabs dislocated ankle ligaments suffered in training but has yet to return to practice. 
  • Fangio doesn’t think CB Bryce Callahan will need a third surgery on his foot. (Troy Renck)
  • He also expects K Brandon McManus to clear the COVID-19 protocols and return to kick this week. (Renck)
  • Fangio said Broncos third-round CB Michael Ojemudia deserved to be ejected for throwing a punch Saturday: “It’s disappointing. It was a poor decision at that time. Hopefully, it’s something he learns form and it never happens again.” (Renck)
