Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard is pleased with the way his side have stepped up in the wake of losing All-Pro Von Miller to suspension.

Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard has revealed that he is delighted with the way his side have coped in the absence of Von Miller.

Miller was banned for the first four games of the season by the NFL for substance abuse, but the Broncos have still managed to start their season 3-0, even without their All-Pro linebacker.

"That next-man mentality is so important in this league, and especially on our team," Woodyard told the Denver Post.

"That helps everybody jell and bond together, when we get a guy stepping in that doesn't get a chance to play that much, and he comes in, and now he's playing like a starter. It's good to see that happen throughout our defense."

Denver face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Mile High Stadium.
