The Buffalo Bills escaped Detroit on Thanksgiving with a last-second 28-25 win over the Lions. But it was a potentially costly win.
Edge rusher Von Miller exited the game in the second quarter with a scary-looking knee injury that immediately knocked him out for the remainder of the game.
The good news for the Bills is that Miller avoided an ACL tear that would have knocked him out for the remainder of the season. But the extent of the damage to his knee is still not known. According to a report from ESPN, Miller is still being evaluated and gathering second opinions on the nature of his injury, while he is expected to miss at least the next two weeks.
There is also still a possibility that he could miss the remainder of the 2022 season.
That would be damaging news to a Bills defense that has been ravaged by injuries all season.
Miller was one of the Bills’ biggest offseason additions and added a major pass-rushing threat to their front. He already has eight sacks and a forced fumble this season.
He is trying to win a third Super Bowl with a third different franchise after previously winning one each with the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams.
