KUSA - For a guy who had not played yet this season, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller started Sunday night playing like the guy who had 30 sacks in his first two seasons.
It didn't last long.
Miller made his season debut against the Indianapolis Colts after serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.
"I felt good," Miller said. "Physically, I felt ready to go."
His first tackle in the game came late in the first quarter on a first-and-15 play, stopping Trent Richardson for a 2-yard run.
In the second quarter, Miller upped his career tackle-for-loss total to 50½ by stopping Richardson two yards behind the line and forcing a punt.
But, those were Miller's only two contributions, as he did not have another tackle in the game.
"We definitely made some mistakes," Miller said. "But, we fought to the end."
The Broncos played without Wesley Woodyard, who during the week thought he was ready to return from a neck injury. But he did not play.
