Broncos OLB Von Miller (knee) is active for today's game against the Texans. It's an upside sack matchup for the pass rusher, though there's also still risk to Miller's injury situation. Fellow OLB Malik Reed (ankle) is inactive for the game.
Broncos OLB Von Miller is "trending in the right direction" but still no lock to return for today's game against the Texans, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. ESPN's Adam Schefter, meanwhile, reports that Denver expects Miller to play. Miller's knee injury cost him last week's game, the 1st he had missed since 2013. We'll update his status later this morning, when the inactives come out. But even an active Miller looks like a risky IDP bet this week.
Broncos OLB Von Miller (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Chargers. The left knee injury snaps a 95-game active streak for Miller. ILB Alexander Johnson (knee) is active and in play for IDP usage. DL Shelby Harris (ankle) is also active but a low-level fantasy option.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Broncos OLB Von Miller is "considered 50/50" to play through his knee injury against the Chargers today, "though it's trending in the right direction." That obviously points to Miller likely playing, but he'll be a low-floor option for IDP lineups.
Broncos OLB Von Miller came away from Week 2 with a sore groin muscle that found him on the sideline late in the game. According to The Denver Post, though, it doesn't seem like a significant issue. Miller actually played through the issue for a while Sunday afternoon before coming out. We'll keep an eye on his status heading into Week 3, but don't panic if your IDP lineup features Denver's star pass rusher.
Broncos OLB Von Miller left Sunday's game at Houston with a knee injury, and the team has ruled him out for the rest of the game. That's a big blow for fantasy owners who included him in their IDP lineups. Miller left the field under his own power, so we're not expecting any long-term issue. We'll see about the star pass-rusher's Week 17 availability.
