Thanksgiving was saved by the Buffalo Bills’ last-second victory over the Detroit Lions. Josh Allen and the rest of the team have lots to be grateful for this holiday season, including a comeback victory, but know that the Bills are still keeping their fingers crossed for Von Miller.

Famer injured his right knee during the first quarter of Thursday’s game against the Lions after being knocked back onto his ankle. The risk of a serious injury was raised by the incident’s video, and Miller being carried off the field did little to allay worries about a possible torn ligament.
Source on #Bills’ Von Miller’s knee injury:’Cautiously optimistic’ he avoided major damage in the #Lions game but Monday’s tests will reveal extent,” per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
the positive news According to a preliminary analysis, Miller might have escaped with a major injury.
Remember that Miller missed the Denver Broncos’ run to Super Bowl XLVIII, where they were defeated 43-8 by the Seattle Seahawks, due to an ACL tear in his right knee in late December 2013. The following year, he came back unscathed, finishing with 14 sacks, and was named to the Second Team All-Pro.
Miller had eight sacks, 20 tackles, and one forced fumble going into Thursday’s game, which is respectable totals but undercut his exceptional 2022 performance. In an effort to keep the 33-year-old fresh for the pivotal moments of the season’s biggest games, Buffalo purposefully keeps him on a low snap count.
Cross your fingers that additional testing will show Von Miller will soon be able to return to the field. For Buffalo to achieve its goal of winning the first Super Bowl as a franchise, he is extremely essential. An overtime field goal by the 8-3 Bills helped them defeat the 28-25 Lions.
