Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller returned to practice today after having surgery on his right thumb three days ago, The Denver Post reports.

The explosive rookie, who plays a dominant role on the Broncos defense, broke his thumb in last Sunday’s win against the San Diego Chargers.

Miller was placed on the limited participant list at practice today and remains questionable for Sunday’s game in Minnesota.  The Broncos will decide on game day whether Miller will play. The number two pick in the 2011 draft, Miller has registered 58 tackles, 10.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in his first NFL season.
