After testing his knee on Sunday before the game, Von Miller felt good enough to go and will be active for the Denver Broncos game against the Houston Texans.

There was some question as to whether or not Von Miller would be a go with an MCL issue on his left knee. He came out in the morning to test the knee and felt good enough to go, so he will be active for the Denver Broncos game today against the Houston Texans.

On the inactives list, the Broncos will be without rookie Malik Reed and veteran guard Ron Leary. Outside of that, there were no surprise additions to the inactives list today. The surprise active is Ja’Wuan James who will be making yet another return to the starting lineup this week.

For the Texans, Will Fuller was a surprise inactive today. That bodes well for the Broncos defense as their secondary was already going to be stressed trying to contain DeAndre Hopkins. Here is the full inactives list for both teams.
