The Buffalo Bills are hopeful star Edge Rusher Von Miller escaped a scary injury with little more than a sprained knee.
But it may not be until Friday until swelling decreases to the point where medical experts can get a clear, full look at Miller’s knee.
Still the early prognosis that the veteran pass rusher avoided a season ending injury, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The injury is to the same knee in which Miller tore his ACL in 2013.
Miller was carted off the field during the game at the end of the first half and right now is slated to miss at least 1-2 weeks at the least. He quickly went to a knee and spent a couple of minutes talking to trainers on the field.
Miller spent several minutes in the medical tent on the sideline before being carted off to the locker room.
Miller was seen in the X-Ray room at Fords Field and not in walking boot. The Bills have stated he did not tear his ACL but such as the significance of Josh Allen’s a few weeks ago are mum on his overall status. Miller does lead the team with sacks with 8 for the year. “[Miller’s] a future Hall of Famer for a reason,” head coach Sean McDermott said. “That said, we’ve got to move forward this week.”
The Bills also signed defensive tackle C.J. Brewer to the practice squad. The Bills are playing the Patriots this Thursday. They’re hoping to right the ship in their own being 0-2 this season in their own division.
