Broncos linebacker Von Miller and other players take a break for the holidays

DENVER — Broncos linebacker Ronnie Hillman took a break Monday from the team’s voluntary offseason program to visit a children’s rehabilitation center in Colorado Springs, according to a report.

The team announced the visit Monday and Hillman, who has been diagnosed with cancer, has not been seen since Sept. 5, according the Denver Post.

The Broncos, who are without linebacker Brandon Marshall and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas due to injuries, will hold an optional team meeting on Thursday to discuss the team options, according ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

The visit came after Hillman and his teammates participated in a voluntary program during the regular season, which is when he suffered a knee injury and missed the entire season.

Hillman and Denver’s other rookies — including linebacker Travis Benjamin and cornerback Malik Jackson — have not practiced this week due to the knee injury.
