Miller and the Bills might still see this season end that way, but there’s plenty of concern about that after he suffered a knee injury Thursday.
Miller left Thursday’s victory against the Detroit Lions with an injury. He had his leg hit from the side by a Lions offensive lineman on a pass play in the first half, then his leg was rolled up on as the play ended. Miller left for the locker room on a cart just before halftime. He was quickly ruled out of the game, which is a bad sign.
Injury Update: Von Miller is out for the game (knee).

Miller had eight sacks in the Bills’ first eight games. He signed a six-year, $120 million deal in the offseason to help the Bills in the playoffs. Miller was the Super Bowl 50 MVP with the Denver Broncos and then was a big part of the Rams’ Super Bowl push last season after a midseason trade.
The Bills will have nervous moments wondering about the severity of Miller’s injury.
