Miller was set to enter his 10th season in the NFL and was primed to form quite the pass-rushing duo opposite of Bradley Chubb, who missed the bulk of last season due to a torn ACL. Speaking of Chubb: reports have also come out along with Miller’s season-ending injury that he may not be ready for Week 1 as he continues to recover, so Denver is looking at the prospect of being down two pass rushers. Miller, meanwhile, finished 2019 with his sixth consecutive Pro Bowl nod, making it a total of eight for his career. The Super Bowl 50 MVP also has been a perennial All-Pro talent (three-time First-team, four-time Second-team) so this loss would be a massive blow to Denver’s front seven.
#Broncos Von Miller getting injured makes me nauseous. The game/league needs him, for his artistry as a pass rusher, and his leadership/role as a mentor for future pass rushers and young players. Damn this is terrible news. Get well fast brother. @VonMiller 🙏🏾
