The Broncos were able to defeat the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday without rookie linebacker Von Miller, but Denver's defense suffered as the emerging star rested his injured thumb. Rookie Vikings quarterback Christian Ponder played the best game of his career, and Minnesota hung 32 points on the Miller-less Broncos defense.
Miller practiced on Wednesday, which could be scary news for the Bears. The 22-year old has been a huge factor the Denver defense's turnaround, already tallying 10.5 sacks. Here's the full lot of players listed on Denver's injury report today:
- S Quinton Carter
- RB Jeremiah Johnson
- DT Mitch Ulrich
- LB Von Miller
Did Not Participate
- OT Ryan Clady
- RB Willis McGahee
- WR Eddie Royal
The 30-year old McGahee rushed for 111 yards on 20 carries in the win over the Vikings.
