Denver Broncos

Miller has shed 20 pounds as he works his way back from a torn right ACL and says his goal is to "play every game" in 2014.

Miller bulked up to 270 pounds last season, 24 more than when he was the second overall pick out of Texas A+M in 2011. Miller is hoping to bounce back from a rough season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a blown out knee on Dec. 22.

An attorney for Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has entered a guilty plea on Miller's behalf to two traffic violations, and other traffic charges have been dropped.

The Denver Post reports Miller wasn't in the Arapahoe County courtroom in suburban Denver when his lawyer entered the guilty pleas to a lane change violation and speeding.

Miller is set to have surgery to repair his torn right ACL in Florida on Thursday.

Miller's rehab is expected to take six to nine months, meaning he could miss the start of the Denver Broncos' training camp next summer. Miller's right knee buckled when he was blocked cleanly by Texans tight end Ryan Griffin in Denver's 37-13 win at Houston on Dec. 22.

Miller left in the first quarter of a 37-13 win over Houston that clinched the AFC West for the Broncos.

There was no update on his injury after the game.

Miller has left Sunday's game against the Texans with a knee injury, and the team said he will not return.

Miller suffered the injury during the first quarter, but was able to walk off the field on his own.

Von Miller returned a fumble 60 yards for a touchdown and then strip-sacked Tom Brady to force another turnover in the first quarter.

Miller had his best game of the season after missing the start of the year because of an NFL suspension.

Miller has agreed to perform 24 hours of community service and take a driving course before Jan. 23, at which time his lawyer will enter guilty pleas for minor traffic violations.

Miller's lawyer, Abraham Hutt, said neither he nor prosecutors thought Miller had to be present for his Arapahoe County Court hearing Monday morning. Magistrate Christina Apostoli wanted him there, however, so Miller was summoned from the team's nearby headquarters. Players were off Monday. When coach John Fox met with the media, he said Miller "was just going on his lawyer's advice," not to attend the hearing before being called to go over to the courthouse.

Denver Broncos superstar Von Miller returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since Aug. 22, having served his six-game suspension for violating the NFL's drug abuse policy. Miller makes his 2013 debut Sunday when the Broncos visit the Colts (4-2) in Peyton Manning's return to Indianapolis.

Coach John Fox said his All-Pro outside linebacker "had an outstanding practice. Obviously he's got fresh legs and ready to roll and excited about the opportunity this week." Miller had 30 sacks in his first two seasons for the Broncos, who went 6-0 in his absence despite the league's worst pass defense.

Denver Broncos coach John Fox came to Miller's defense Thursday, 24 hours after publicly expressing frustration in his suspended star over multiple traffic transgressions.

Miller was arrested when he tried to purchase a weapon last month and a routine background check revealed an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court on traffic charges from last year. He also was pulled over near his suburban Denver home last week and cited for speeding and driving with a suspended license.

Suspended All-Pro linebacker Von Miller is in trouble with the law for the second time in a month. Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson told Denver television station CBS4 on Tuesday night that the Denver Broncos' troubled star was cited last week for driving without a license and speeding near his home.

Robinson said Miller was with his father, who was then allowed to drive the vehicle. The Broncos declined comment on Miller's latest legal troubles when contacted by The Associated Press.
