Buffalo Bills pass rusher Von Miller has undergone surgery to repair a torn ACL and is out for the rest of the season. The team was originally hoping to get the veteran back this season, but unfortunately, the knee injury was worse than the team had hoped it was. Head Coach Sean McDermott made the unfortunate announcement on Wednesday. The Buffalo Bills will have to enter the NFL Playoffs this season without Miller. They are still considered Super Bowl contenders, but this is a blow to the team’s defense heading into the postseason.

This season with the Buffalo Bills, Von Miller recorded 18 solo tackles, 21 total tackles, two passes defended, one forced fumble, and eight sacks. During the offseason, Miller signed a massive long-term deal with the Buffalo Bills after winning a Super Bowl with the Los Angeles Rams. The Bills were hoping to use the veteran pass rusher in a similar way on their way to winning the Super Bowl this season. Those plans will have to be put on hold for now, but the team still hopes to win a Championship this season. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Miller the best in his recovery and eventual return to the football field.
