The Broncos escaped San Diego with a 35-24 win on Monday, but not with a clean bill of health for star linebacker Von Miller. In the third quarter of the Broncos victory, Miller was seen grabbing his side and revealed after the game it was a hip pointer injury. Despite this, Miller stayed in the game and finished it off with a fourth-quarter sack of Philip Rivers. The Broncos have not revealed any further updates on Miller.
After not being on Friday's injury report, cornerback Tracy Porter missed Monday's game with an undisclosed illness, according to the team. No information on the nature of the illness is known, but the Broncos have a bye in Week 7, giving Porter plenty of time to recover.
Returning to the team after missing four games due to a forearm injury was guard Chris Kuper. He sustained the injury on August 14, and was expected to miss 4-6 weeks. No news is good news after Kuper started against San Diego, but the Broncos should continue to monitor the 29-year-old lineman.
