Could Von be long gone?

The Bills will be without prized pass-rusher Von Miller on Thursday when they take on the Patriots, and there’s some question as to just how long he’ll be on the shelf.

Miller injured his right knee on a scary play during the Bills’ Thanksgiving matchup with the Lions. He was eventually carted off the field and into the locker room.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that surgery is likely; the question is whether it will occur now or after the season.

If Miller goes through the 10 days and he and the team doctors decide he can play with a brace on his knee, then he can return to the field. If not, then he could undergo surgery, with a recovery and return timetable unclear.

“I do have some lateral meniscus damage and it’s going to have to be addressed,” Miller said on his podcast, “The Voncast,” as transcribed by ESPN. “But I do feel like I can, you know, play through that, so I’m just going to wait a little bit, and let the swelling go down for about seven to 10 days and, hopefully, right before the Jets game I will be back.”
