Broncos Placing OLB Von Miller On Injured Reserve

The Denver Broncos are placing OLB Von Miller on injured reserve Tuesday, according to MVon Millerike Klis. 


Miller underwent surgery after injuring a tendon in his ankle last week.

Some have said this could be a season-ending issue for him, while others have left the door open for a return at some point later on in the season.

Miller, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Broncos back in 2011. After playing out his rookie deal, Denver picked up his fifth-year option and later used their franchise tag on Miller.

The Broncos signed Miller to a six-year, $114 million extension in 2016 with $70 million guaranteed. He will make $18 million in 2020 with $6 million fully guaranteed and count $25.625 million against the cap.

Denver officially picked up Miller’s option earlier this offseason. 

In 2019, Miller appeared in 15 games for the Broncos and recorded 46 tackles, eight sacks and two pass defenses. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 25 edge defender out of 111 qualifying players.
