Linebacker Von Miller returned to practice today, sporting a cast on his right thumb, which required surgery earlier in the week.
Head Coach John Fox said Miller is questionable for Sunday against the Vikings in Minnesota.
“I definitely want to be out there for my teammates,” Miller said. “I’m feeling pretty good. I have full faith in our athletic training staff and I’m taking all the steps possible to play in this game. I’ve been preparing all this week and it’s just up to the training staff. I know they have my best interests at heart.”
Miller said he’s never played with a cast on his hand, but the rookie doesn’t anticipate it being too much of a hindrance in the future.
“It’s not going to change the way I play the game,” Miller said. “I’m still going to have fanatical effort to the ball, relentless pursuit to the ball. I don’t think that’s going to change.”
