Last year, the Buffalo Bills acquired star linebacker Von Miller in the hopes that he would be the final piece to a championship puzzle.
However, it didn’t work out, as Miller suffered a torn ACL in a Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions, and the Bills ended up getting blown out in the Divisional round of the playoffs by the Cincinnati Bengals.
But the latest video of Miller working out with his teammates should be encouraging to the Bills Mafia, as he wasn’t wearing any type of gear on his injured knee.

ACL tears often take close to a year to fully recover from to the point where the patient is able to play again, and it is therefore unlikely he will be ready to take the field for Week 1 of the 2023 season.
Buffalo will need Miller back sooner than later if they are to achieve their goal of finally winning their first-ever Super Bowl next season.
Although he may not quite be the same player he was several years ago as a member of the Denver Broncos, he is still a difference-maker.
He posted 8.0 sacks, 12 quarterback hits, and 10 tackles for loss in 2022 despite playing in just 11 contests due to his ACL injury.
Miller is a two-time Super Bowl champion, having won a title with the Broncos in 2015 and another one with the Los Angeles Rams in 2021, and he has eight Pro Bowl nods and three All-Pro first-team selections to his name.
He was named the MVP of Super Bowl 50 after recording six total tackles (five solo), two quarterback hits, and two forced fumbles.NEXT: DeAndre Hopkins Is Rumored To Have Strong Interest In 1 Team
