Denver Broncos AP All-Pro, Von Miller, injured his lower leg in practice on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020. The perennial Pro-Bowl Outside Linebacker went down in a heap and was attended to by medical staff.
The team fears the worst at this point, Miller is a true asset to the team with his strengths being getting to the quarterback and hopefully attaining a quarterback sack which is a loss of yards, in a game where strives off gaining inches.
It is believed that Miller’s ankle was rolled up by other teammates during tackling drills, the severity is not yet known, but again the teams believe it may be season-ending. Like most other players in the NFL, when they hear season-ending they tend to seek a second opinion to try and avoid the obvious. But in some cases, players were initially misdiagnosed treated the injury, and was back on the field of play, and not having there season ended due to injury after all.
The Denver Broncos had high expectations this season with Von Miller reporting to camp in great shape. And coming off a sub-par 2019 campaign where Miller was the target of constant double teams, due to his teammate linebacker Bradley Chubb getting injured after week 4. And with Chubb returning from injury the team had nothing but high praises and expectations for the upcoming season.
And even with the constantly scheming and game-planning for Von Miller he still made his 8th Pro-Bowl and the 100-sack club.
Until the MRI is completed on the all-pro and the severity of the injury is diagnosed, no course of action can be taken.
