Bills’ Von Miller carted to locker room after suffering knee injury on Thanksgiving, ruled out vs. Lions


The Buffalo Bills defense ended their Thanksgiving game against the Detroit Lions without one of their best players. Passion star Von Miller was taken to the dressing room in the first half with a knee injury and was quickly ruled out by the team for the rest of the day. Luckily for the Bills, they avoided a 28-25 victory.

According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson, the initial prognosis is a sprained knee for Miller, who is scheduled for an MRI on Friday. Miller was injured with just under three minutes left in the second quarter. He chose an inside route to pounce on quarterback Jared Goff and landed awkwardly with his left foot. Miller was able to walk off the field on his own, but spent a lot of time in the blue medical tent before being taken to the dressing room before half time. The team quickly eliminated him for the remainder of the competition.

The 33-year-old has recorded 20 combined tackles, 11 QBs, eight sacks, two defensive passes and one forced fumble in 10 games played this week. He recorded one tackle and one QB hit before suffering an injury on Thursday.

It’s a notable injury, not only because Miller is one of the Bills’ top defensemen, but because Buffalo also plays very little pass rusher. AJ Epenesa and Greg Russo are not dressed this week due to ankle injuries.
