Miller's goal is to return by season opener

DENVER (AP) -- Von Miller has shed 20 pounds as he works his way back from a torn right ACL and says his goal is to "play every game" in 2014.

Miller made the comments Monday night at Sports Authority Field, where he handed out prescription glasses to 104 underprivileged children in his inaugural Von's Vision charity event.

Miller bulked up to 270 pounds last season, 24 more than when he was the second overall pick out of Texas A&M in 2011.

Miller is hoping to bounce back from a rough season that began with a six-game drug suspension and ended with a blown out knee on Dec. 22.
