The Buffalo Bills lost one of their key defensive players on Thanksgiving. At this time, it does not appear to be serious.
Defensive end Von Miller suffered an injury in the second quarter. The injury happened with two minutes left in the quarter.
Miller has been ruled out for the rest of the game. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is reporting that Miller suffered a sprained ankle.
The Bills are thankful on this holiday that it is not worse. A season-ending injury.
An official diagnosis will come on Friday. That’s when Miller will undergo attentional tests to determine the severity of the injury.
He suffered the injury when his leg was caught up with a Detroit Lions lineman. He initially walked off the field.
He then went into the medical tent. Following his stint in the tent, he was then carted off into the locker room.
Miller had one tackle before leaving the game.
The eight-time Pro Bowler signed a six-year with the Bills in the offseason. The deal is worth $120 million.
If Miller is out an extended time, it could be devastating to the Bills’ defense. Oftentimes, offensive teams have to double-team Miller.
This allows another defensive lineman to get free to make a play.
With Miller sidelined, the Bills have three defensive ends to finish the game. Miller and his backup A.J. Epenesa are out, as is Greg Rousseau.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
