Von Miller suffers season ending injury at Broncos practice

NFL: Denver Broncos-Training Camp Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Tennessee Titans are just days away from their Week 1 matchup on Monday Night Football with the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos received some terrible news this evening when reports surfaced that star EDGE rusher Von Miller suffered a season ending injury.

Adam Schefter reported that Miller suffered a freak ankle injury on the last play of practice. The injury occurred in his tendon specifically, and Miller will require season-ending surgery because of it.

Miller is the best player on a good Denver defense. The Broncos were hoping to pair Miller with former first-round pick Bradley Chubb for the first time since a Week 4 knee injury knocked Chubb out for the rest of last season. The Broncos have an elite duo screaming off the edges, but getting them both on the field at the same time has felt like an impossible task. That must be incredibly frustrating for this Denver regime.

Adam Schefter is also reporting that the Broncos are not even sure if Chubb himself will be ready by Week 1.

The Titans could be facing a short-handed Broncos defense on Monday night.
