Denver Broncos confirmed that Von Miller had surgery to repair his knee today
Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller had surgery Thursday to repair his torn right ACL, the team has confirmed. The procedure, performed by a surgeon in Dr. James Andrews’ group, was completed and the Broncos’ training staff had been notified by late Thursday afternoon.
Miller’s recovery time is expected to take between six to nine months. Miller, sporting a brace on the knee for support in recent days, has been receiving treatment at the Broncos’ facility since he suffered the injury last month.
Miller tore the ACL in his right knee midway through the first quarter of the 37-13 victory over the Houston Texans in Week 16. Miller underwent an MRI the following day and the exam confirmed what some team officials had feared after the game.
