Mon, 23 Dec 2013 13:01:50 -0800

Denver Broncos LB Von Miller (knee) will have surgery to fix the torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee in two to three weeks, and he faces a recovery period of six to nine months, meaning he'll miss the team's offseason program and likely some of training camp next year. Miller might go for a second opinion on his knee. He wasn't using crutches after the Week 16 game and said he didn't have much pain in his knee. LB Nate Irving played in Miller's spot after he was injured, but DE Robert Ayers also saw action opposite DE Shaun Phillips.
