The Broncos have a chance to clinch home-field advantage next Sunday with a win over the Raiders. But that task just got a little bit more difficult for Denver because of this:
BREAKING: Broncos LB Von Miller has a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season. (via ESPN and media reports)— NFL on ESPN (@ESPNNFL) December 23, 2013
That's right. According to reports, Von Miller does have a torn ACL, which is exactly what the Broncos suspected yesterday after Miller left the Broncos/Texans game with an injury. So he will not be able to play for the team for the rest of the year. And considering how the Broncos defense has looked at times in recent weeks—not good—that could end up being a big blow to the team.
