Buffalo Bills star pass rusher Von Miller returned to practice this week after missing the first four games of the 2023 season on the physically unable-to-perform list. 

Miller is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last season, but he plans to play if the team wants him to in Week 5 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 

If Miller returns, it would be a massive boost to the Buffalo pass rush. 

Von Miller injury status for Week 5 against Jacksonville Jaguars

The Bills plan on taking things day-by-day with Miller, but he seems to have a good chance of playing in Week 5 after returning to practice on Wednesday.

Jaguars vs. Bills odds, spread and total

With Miller back, the Bills defense should be in a better spot after allowing the most yards per carry through the first four games of the season. 

Miller will help the Buffalo pass rush, and even if he’s on a snap count he should make things tough on Trevor Lawrence and company.
