This was revealed by the ESPN network on Twitter on Friday. According to this source, the Bills’ doctors are still evaluating the nature of Miller’s injury. The 33-year-old Texan could miss several weeks of action and it’s not impossible that his season is over.
Miller was injured during the fourth quarter of the 28-25 win at Ford Field. He was escorted off the field in a cart and appeared in a state of disarray as the Bills’ medical team assessed the extent of the damage.
In 2013, the former Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee. He’s missed the Broncos’ last seven games and gone under the knife.
The Bills (8-3) will be back in action against the New England Patriots (6-5) on Thursday.
