Draft Scout Von Miller News
09/20/14 - LB Von Miller (groin) is probable for Sunday's game at the Seattle Seahawks.
09/17/14 - LB Von Miller practiced on a full basis Wednesday, three days after suffering a groin strain against the Chiefs. Miller did not play during the Broncos' last series, but appears good to go for Sunday.
09/14/14 - DE Von Miller had his first sack of the season before leaving late in the game with a groin injury. LB Lerentee McCray also left the game early on with a knee injury. Coach John Fox said after the game both players would be further evaluated and their status would be updated on Monday.
07/30/14 - LB Von Miller took part in full-team, full-speed plays during Wednesday's practice. It marked his first work of that type since he tore his anterior cruciate ligament last Dec. 22.
07/24/14 - LB Von Miller isn't all the way back from a torn ACL, but he is close. He took part in the 7-on-7 periods of practice and was held out of team work, but that keeps him on schedule to play Week 1 against the Colts.
But just as important as his physical recovery is his mental and emotional one. His 2013 season was marred by an arrest and a six-game suspension for violation of the league's substance-abuse policy. He put on weight during his suspension, which appeared to slow him down; although he still generated consistent pressure, he failed to finish that with sacks as frequently as he did in 2012.
This offseason, he dropped some of that weight, bringing him closer to the 250-260-pound range, which is ideal.
"I feel good where I'm at. A Ferrari wasn't built to carry luggage to and from the airport. You just want to have light, streamlined. That's just what I was trying to get to," he said."Everything but the knee brace, I want to be streamlined, fast and quick."
Last year, he hoped playing at above 270 pounds would help him burst through opposing blockers. But it hindered his ability to get around them.
"I figured out when I was 280, 270 pounds, they're still going to hold you regardless. It's not like you're going to keep offensive linemen from holding you," he said. "So I might as well be at a weight we're I'm comfortable."
