Bills Edge Rusher Miller Carted Off

The Buffalo Bills will be without one of their elite pass rushers for the remainder of their Thanksgiving matchup with the Detroit Lions. Linebacker Von Miller exited late in the second quarter and was quickly declared out with a knee injury. Miller was shaken up in the red zone during a Lions drive before the two-minute warning. The Lions marched in for a touchdown moments later. Miller was then evaluated on the sideline before being carted to the locker room. He leaves the game with one tackle and with the Bills up 17-14 at the half.

Miller has been a crucial closer as a starter and rotational pass rusher for the Bills this year. He has notched 8.0 sacks in his 10 appearances this year after joining the team on a six-year, $120 million deal this past offseason. The quick ruling on today's availability indicates he could be looking at a long-term injury.

A future Hall of Famer, Miller entered the league as the second overall pick of the Denver Broncos in 2011. He earned eight Pro Bowls in his first nine seasons and won Super Bowl MVP in his spectacular 2015 season. An ankle injury cost him the entire 2020 season, and a mid-season trade landed him with the Los Angeles Rams last season, where he won his second Super Bowl. He has notched 123.5 sacks in the regular season and another 10.5 sacks in 11 postseason games.
