Miller misses practice for minor thumb surgery

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Denver Broncos rookie pass-rusher Von Miller underwent a surgical procedure to repair a strained ligament in his left thumb and missed Wednesday's practice.

Miller is expected to play Sunday at Minnesota, however.

Miller was injured in Denver's 16-13 overtime win at San Diego on Sunday. He made the play of the game when he stuffed running back Mike Tolbert for a 4-yard loss just before Nick Novak missed a 53-yard field goal that would have won it.

Miller was the second overall pick in the NFL draft out of Texas A&M and has lived up to his billing, recording 10 1-2 sacks and collecting 58 tackles and one Defensive Player of the Week honor.
