Broncos' Miller has surgery on thumb

Denver Broncos rookie linebacker Von Miller, who has been as advertised as the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, could miss Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings after having surgery to repair torn ligaments in his thumb.

Miller, who has 10.5 sacks thus far, suffered the injury in Sunday's overtime victory over the San Diego Chargers, and went back into the game after sustaining the injury, making a tackle on Ryan Mathews for a four-yard loss.

According to the Denver Post, Miller is hoping to be able to play against the Vikings. The Broncos might also be without receiver Eddie Royal in the game as well due to an injured ankle.
