Von Miller cleared to practice

The Broncos are doing the same roster housekeeping to start training camp as the other 31 teams in the league, but their roster shuffling won’t involve linebacker Von Miller.

Coach John Fox said Wednesday that Miller will avoid the Physically Unable to Perform list after tearing his ACL in Week 16 of last season. Fox said that Miller may be limited in practice in the early stages, something that seems like a good bet since passing on the PUP list now means it won’t be an option if Miller should need extra time to round into shape when the preseason comes to an end.

Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson, defensive end Derek Wolfe and safety Rahim Moore, who all joined Miller on season-ending injured reserve last year, also avoided the PUP list. Cornerback Chris Harris, who tore his ACL in the postseason, was not so lucky. Harris was placed on the PUP list and Fox said his rehab is progressing as expected.

“He’s on schedule,” Fox said, via USA Today. “I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a guy work that hard to rehab. … It’s grueling.”

The Broncos have their first practice of training camp on Thursday morning.

    The Best Outside LB in the NFL is Anthony Barr.

    Step aside Von Miller.

    The Broncos Defense is pretty scary on paper. There aren’t any huge holes or deficiencies – they could have maybe upgraded at MLB, but I’m thinking they will be a damn solid unit, barring injury. Del Rio will have them playing hungry and fast… Denver will be one of the top 2 seeds in AFC, the Colts will be the other.

    I saw a big piece of it in the Super Bowl a few months ago. It’s amazing how fast these guys can come back from ACLs these days.

    Broncos are definitely not the same team they were in the Super Bowl. In fact, that defense is almost brand new compared to the Super Bowl. Getting Clady back and moving Franklin to LG is obviously huge, along with Sanders and Ball as upgrades. Scary team heading into 2014…
