(SportsNetwork.com) - Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and will miss the rest of the season, according to multiple reports.

Miller injured his right knee in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Houston Texans. Tests on Monday revealed the torn ACL, according to NFL.com, the Denver Post and CBSSports.com.

The star pass rusher didn't go down on a hit. His right leg bent awkwardly on a block by Texans tight end Ryan Griffin at the line.

Miller played just eight games this season, compiling 34 tackles and five sacks. He served a six-game suspension to start the season for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

The Broncos (12-3) beat the Texans 37-13 to clinch the AFC West title and a first-round bye in the playoffs. They finish the regular season Sunday at Oakland.
