Von Miller recently provided an update on his knee injury and when he might possibly return
The Buffalo Bills saw one of the most important players on their roster leave their last game early as Von Miller suffered a knee injury against the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. The good news was that Miller didn’t suffer a torn ACL but there was some damage to the knee and when he might be able to return, if at all, was still unknown.
On Tuesday during the VonCast, the former All-Pro provided an update on his injury and also a potential timeline of when he might return. Miller did say “that it wasn’t the best of news but also wasn’t the worst of news, it is kind of in the middle” as he confirmed that there was some lateral meniscus damage.
Von Miller hopes to be back right before the New York Jets game
He went on to say that he believes this is something that he could play through. The focus now is that he will rest for 7-10 days and let the swelling go down and said “hopefully I will be back right before the Jets game.”
If that timeline holds true, that would mean that Von Miller would miss only one game, which is Thursday night against the New England Patriots, and he was already ruled out for that game.
When all things considered, this is tremendous news for the Bills and their defense. This has been Von Miller’s first season in Buffalo and he has been a true difference-maker for this pass rush with eight sacks, 10 tackles for a loss and 12 QB hits already on the season.
If Von Miller is able to return for the Jets game, it would be a big boost for this team in a game that is essentially a must-win as the Jets beat the Bills earlier this season and Buffalo will need a win to even the season series.
