Injury Report: OLB Von Miller 'day to day,' NT Mike Purcell likely out for Week 8


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — After suffering an ankle sprain on Thursday against the Browns, outside linebacker Von Miller is "day to day" ahead of Sunday's game vs. Washington, Head Coach Vic Fangio announced.

Miller did not practice on Tuesday as the Broncos returned to the field.

Nose tackle Mike Purcell (thumb) also did not practice on Tuesday, and Fangio said Purcell will "probably not" play against Washington. If Purcell is unavailable, DeShawn Williams would replace him in the lineup, according to Fangio.

Outside linebacker Malik Reed also did not participate during the media-viewing period, and tackle Garett Bolles exited the field with a trainer after the stretching period.

The Broncos could regain inside linebacker Baron Browning, who missed Week 7 while in the concussion protocol. Fangio said Browning had cleared the protocol but needed to have "a good practice" on Tuesday as a final step. Browning participated on Tuesday, as did wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, tight end Albert Okwuegbunam, linebacker Jonas Griffith and outside linebacker Aaron Patrick.

Fangio said Browning would need to play a big role for the Broncos at inside linebacker with the injuries the team has suffered.

"As you guys know his story, he's missed a lot of time through various injuries," Fangio said. "But it's time for him to step up."

Fangio said he expected quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who battled injuries last week, to be a full participant in practice ahead of Week 8.

The Broncos will release official practice designations beginning on Wednesday.
