More details are emerging about Von Miller’s lower leg injury, and the Broncos are not bringing any good news for passes.

Miller is in need of surgery, which possibly ends his season.

Mike Claes of Denver’s 9News reports that Miller was the first sports orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Will take second opinion from Anderson, whose practice is in Green Bay.

The Broncos are unsure whether former first-round pair Bradley Chubb will prepare for the opener against the Titans on Monday night. Chulub worsened his ACL over the last four seasons.

One reason for Chubb’s absence was that Miller had only eight sacks last season, as it allowed teams to double Miller.

Miller has 106 sacks since the Broncos first picked him in 2011.

Miller’s backups are Malik Reid and Jeremiah Attochu.
