First Published Jan 08 2014 07:06 pm • Last Updated Jan 08 2014 11:42 pm

Coach Dennis Allen will be part of the reconstruction of the Oakland Raiders after spending his first two years overseeing the deconstruction.

Allen is scheduled to meet Wednesday with owner Mark Davis and general manager Reggie McKenzie to map out plans for how to rebuild the struggling franchise after consecutive four-win seasons to begin his tenure.

Allen said after the season that he had been given an indication that he would be back for a third season but he still needed to talk with Davis. That meeting happened Tuesday night and now the Raiders can start planning for 2014.

Oakland has gone 11 straight seasons without a playoff berth or winning record and has an NFL-worst 123 losses since the start of 2003.

Broncos’ Miller to have surgery Friday

Von Miller is set to have surgery to repair his torn right ACL in Florida on Thursday.

Miller’s rehab is expected to take six to nine months, meaning he could miss the start of the Denver Broncos’ training camp next summer.

Miller’s right knee buckled when he was blocked cleanly by Texans tight end Ryan Griffin in Denver’s 37-13 win at Houston on Dec. 22.

That ended a rough season for the 2011 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, one that began with him serving a six-game drug suspension.
