Denver Broncos star linebacker, Von Miller, will undergo surgery to repair his torn right ACL tomorrow. Miller tore the knee ligament in the first quarter in Denver’s 37-13 win over the Houston Texans Dec. 22, 2013. Dr. James Andrews, the orthopedic surgeon responsible for almost every successful sports surgeries, will perform the operation in Florida.

Miller’s knee is expected to take at least six, and up to nine, months to fully recover. This timetable will likely keep him withheld from the early parts of training camp, but is on track to play in the season opener.

Miller’s 2013 season started late and ended early. He was suspended for the first six games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and started only nine games this season. Miller finished the year with 33 tackles and five sacks. The Broncos went 7-0 without Miller in the lineup and will go into the playoffs without one of their most valuable defensive assets

Miller had to wait for swelling in his knee to subside before going under the knife. A day after Miller’s operation, Dr. Andrews’ clinic will perform knee surgery on Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who tore his ACL and MCL Dec. 8 against the Browns.
