Von Miller leaves game with knee injury


The Denver Broncos will play the rest of Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans without Von Miller.

Miller left Sunday’s Week 16 contest against the Texans with a first-quarter knee injury. He was quickly ruled out for the day which typically is not a good sign but considering the Broncos are playing against the Texans who have lost 12 in a row it could be simply a precaution.

Since returning to the field after a suspension to start the year Miller has been a key part of the Broncos defense. In his eight games he has five sacks and three forced fumbles.
