Whenever a key player injures his knee, his team fears the worst — a torn ACL.

While the Broncos reportedly fear that linebacker Von Miller has suffered a torn ACL, the team currently believes it’s not torn, according to Vic Lombardi of CBS 4 in Denver.

The diagnosis hinges on an MRI to be conducted Monday.  In some cases, the MRI merely confirms the damage that seems apparent from a physical manipulation of the knee.  In others, the MRI truly is diagnostic.

Based on Lombardi’s report, that’s good news for Miller and the Broncos.  For now.  Possible bad news could be coming.
