Did everyone forget Von Miller returned to the field?
Before the game on Sunday, the fans were beyond excited to have Von Miller back on the field and while his presence wasn't noteworthy in this game, I don't see him being on that pitch count that Coach McDermott spoke about in the post-game. He was only in on 19 total snaps and this game was more about getting him physically ramped up and game ready.
Miller was leading the team in sacks before his injury last season and I expect him to pick up right where he left off. I know he's older but he has not shown any signs of slowing down. I also talked about Milano being the heart and soul of this defense. This is where the veteran leadership qualities of Miller will come into play, and he'll make sure his teammates aren't down on themselves and they are ready to roll.
