Breaking News: Ex-Broncos key Star Set return After a successful knee surgery……

Justin Simmons noted how strange it will be to root against Von Miller for the first time when the Denver Broncos face their former captain Monday night in Buffalo

“He’s a 1-of-1, generational type player,” Simmons said of the Super Bowl 50 MVP, who won another ring with the Rams after a midseason trade three years ago before Miller signed with the Bills in 2022.

Simmons, though, saved some of his profusive praise for one of Denver’s current pass rushers, Baron Browning, a third-year pro from Ohio State who has transitioned from inside to outside linebacker.

Browning missed the first two months of the season while recovering from knee surgery and a wrist injury. He returned against Green Bay on Oct. 22, but he was on a snap count before defensive coordinator Vance Joseph unleashed him on the Kansas City Chiefs a week later.

Browning harassed Patrick Mahomes for a pair of sacks, including a strip sack that extinguished a promising drive and three quarterback hits to go with two tackles for loss in Denver’s 24-9 win.

“It’s crazy to have that type of impact really your first game back,” Simmons said. “I know he played against Green Bay, but limited snaps and just kind of feeling it out.”

Kansas City was another story, and just the type of performance the Broncos (3-5) figure they’ll see a lot more of beginning Monday night against the Bills (5-4).

“When you have a game wrecker like that, in the back end it helps us out so much,” said Simmons, a safety who had an interception and a fumble recovery in the Broncos’ win that snapped a 16-game skid against the Chiefs.
