The Bills’ top free-agent addition, Von Miller, was sidelined with a knee injury vs. Lions
November 24, 2022
When the Buffalo Bills signed pass rusher Von Miller, they hoped that Miller would have the same impact for them that he had on the Los Angeles Rams last season when he helped them win a Super Bowl.
Miller and the Bills may still see this season end that way, but there is plenty of concern about that after he suffered a knee injury Thursday.
Miller left Thursday’s game 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 as the game ended. Miller left for the locker room on a cart just before halftime. He was quickly ruled offside, which is a bad sign.
Miller has recruited free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr., and Beckham was concerned about the injury.
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 make 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 and wonder about the severity of Miller’s injury.
