Von Miller was named the AFC's Defensive Player of the Month for October. Miller has had seven sacks during Denver's four-game winning streak, and has at least one QB takedown in six straight games.
He first won the award in November 2012, when he totaled eight sacks and forced three fumbles. Von and the newly retired Champ Bailey (11/05, 10/06) are the only Broncos to have won the award twice.
Meanwhile, Tom Brady is the AFC Offensive POM, presumably beating out Peyton Manning for that honor.
The Broncos filled their practice squad vacancy by signing former Arena League wideout Douglas McNeil.
A spot had opened with last week's post-arrest release of John Boyett.
Tuesday's trade deadline saw no other action for Denver, who reportedly drew multiple offers for corner Tony Carter. According to Troy Renck, Baltimore was among the teams who came calling.
The Champ has decided to hang 'em up.
Longtime former Broncos corner Champ Bailey is retiring after 15 seasons, says his agent, Jack Reale.
As Reale tells it, Bailey has drawn interest from a couple of teams, but has decided instead to move on.
On Monday, San Diego released corner Richard Marshall, who had become a favorite target for Peyton Manning over the past two seasons.
During the Broncos' past four games against the Chargers (including the 2013 divisional round), Manning has been nearly perfect when throwing Marshall's way.
The Broncos expectedly ruled out Omar Bolden (concussion) and Montee Ball (groin) for Thursday's game against San Diego.
Steven Johnson (ankle) is questionable, while five others are listed as probable.
Ball is reportedly progressing, and may practice on a limited basis next week, prior to Denver's game at New England.
Denver's Wednesday injury report is a carbon copy of Tuesday's; Brandon McManus (groin), Steven Johnson (ankle), Omar Bolden (concussion), and Montee Ball (groin) were again held out.
Ball is improving and did some conditioning work, but he'll miss Thursday's game against San Diego; Johnson and Bolden are also expected to sit.
The Broncos promoted running back Kapri Bibbs from their practice squad and waived his fellow ex-CSU Ram Shaq Barrett to make room for him.
According to Mike Klis, Denver called up Bibbs to prevent other teams from signing him.
As wins over Seattle and Buffalo became a significant streak with victories over the lesser Jags and Jets, San Diego had done wonders to overcome injuries.
But then they barely squeaked past Oakland last week, and on Sunday, they lost at home to Kansas City, allowing the Chiefs 154 rushing yards and 39 minutes of TOP.
With three first-half touchdown passes on Sunday night, Peyton Manning became the NFL's all-time leader in touchdown passes.
Manning threw touchdowns of three yards to Emmanuel Sanders and 39 yards to Wes Welker on Denver's first two possessions of the night.
After a five-and-out, Manning hit Demaryius Thomas from eight yards out for the record, with some nifty footwork from Demaryius in the front right corner of the end zone.
San Francisco will be without key starters Patrick Willis (toe) and Mike Iupati (concussion) on Sunday.
