The Buffalo Bills have endured a few up-and-down days since their Thanksgiving Day win over the Detroit Lions. Von Miller departed the win with a serious knee injury, although the Bills learned their veteran pass rusher did avoid a torn ACL, which would have ultimately ended his 2022 season early.

In the same breath, Buffalo made a quick decision to rule Miller out for its Week 13 clash against the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, as he's been diagnosed with a lateral meniscus tear.

On Sunday, insider Ian Rapoport detailed the team's initial plan to address Miller's injury.

Von Miller Injury Update

According to Rapoport, the Bills will re-assess after "about another week" to see how Miller is feeling, how the initial rehab has worked and if it's an injury he could play through with a brace. The alternative is Miller's knee not responding well and possibly requiring "season-ending surgery."

Rapoport calls the situation a "wait-and-see" decision for both parties involved.

As expected, Miller has been an anchor and dominant force in his first season with Buffalo. He leads the team with 8.0 sacks and 12 quarterback hits, racking up 10 tackles for loss on his combined 21 tackles.

The Bills improved their record to 8-3 with the Thanksgiving Day win and are still considered +420 favorites to win Super Bowl 57 on FanDuel Sportsbook.
