In their Thanksgiving game, the Bills defeated the Lions 28-25, but they will now be without one of their most important defensive assets for some time at least. Due to a knee injury, star pass defender Von Miller was carried to the locker room during the first half and was immediately declared out for the remainder of the day by the team.

During a pass play in the first half, a Lions offensive lineman struck him in the side, and as he attempted to tackle Detroit quarterback Jared Goff, his leg was rolled up. The 33-year-old twisted his knee on the turf and fell before getting to Goff. Just before halftime, Miller rode a cart to the locker room.

He was immediately ruled out of the match, which is a bad sign. The Bills will experience some anxiety as they wonder how serious Miller’s injury is. In response to the injury, former teammate and current unsigned free agent Odell Beckham Jr. revived his call for the NFL to ban turf.

Von Miller Injury Update

Von Miller of the Bills has been ruled out indefinitely with a knee injury sustained during the team’s game against the Lions. Miller did not tear his ACL, according to Schefter, but doctors are still assessing the damage to his knee and will ultimately decide how much time is lost.

It’s unclear when he’ll be able to play again; according to Schefter, the linebacker might only be out for a few weeks or the entire campaign.

After a Friday MRI, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported there is concern about his lateral meniscus. Rapoport added that before deciding what to do next, Miller and the team must wait for the injury to subside in one to two weeks. But he’s out for the time being. Rapoport added that Von will undergo surgery, though it’s unclear if it will happen now or after the current campaign.

Prior to this week, the 33-year-old had played in 10 games and recorded 20 combined tackles, 11 QB hits, 8 sacks, 2 passes defensed, and 1 forced fumble. Before getting hurt on Thursday, he made one tackle and one QB hit.
