Miller had thumb surgery, could miss game

Update: 3:01pm ET - Turns out Vic Lombardi was right about Von Miller having had surgery this week - it was to repair torn thumb ligaments yesterday, and both Miller and Eddie Royal (ankle) might miss Sunday's game in Minnesota.

Update: 2:23pm ET - Miller did not practice today, nor did Willis McGahee or Eddie Royal

Update 1:19pm ET - Lindsay Jones says Von doesn't appear to be practicing today, but she was told he's "fine"

Original entry - Vic Lombardi tweeted earlier today that Von Miller had broken his thumb during Denver's victory at San Diego, but an updated message says the rookie linebacker merely suffered ligament damage and should be available for Sunday's game.
