Will Von Miller return to being an impact player?

One of those players who can help with that is Von Miller, who is working his way back from a torn ACL last season. The former All-Pro began the season on the PUP list and missed the first six games of the year.

Miller returned in Week 5 against the Jacksonsville Jaguars but the coaching staff seems to be very cautious with his snaps. He hasn't played more than 27 snaps through the first four games and really hasn't been making an impact when on the field.

This season, Miller has only one assisted tackle and one QB hit but the Bills defense is going to need more from him going forward. The best way to help the inexperienced linebackers and cornerbacks is to not allow the quarterback time in the pocket.

If the Bills can continue to get pressure, the defense has a chance to remain one of the top groups in the league and Von Miller will need to be a big part of that.
