The Buffalo Bills are getting some positive news from their top linebacker, Von Miller.
Miller, who signed a multi-year deal with the team in 2022, was a cornerstone of the team’s defense in 2022.
While he tore his ACL in 2022, he’s giving fans good news for 2023.
During his podcast, he tells fans “I feel like I’ll be ready for next season.”

His injury, which ended his season, was a major blow to the defense of the Bills.
Miller was having his best season since 2018, a season where he recorded 14.5 sacks.
His eight sacks during 2022 came during key games.
One game where Miller was a star was against the Kansas City Chiefs, where he sacked Patrick Mahomes two times.
While his injury hurt the Bills’ Super Bowl dreams, he’s keeping them alive for next season.
His progress during his recovery has him feeling “really, really good.”
The promising news from him is everything fans need right now after a disappointing playoff run.
His potential return in 2023 gives the Bills’ defense a fighting chance against tough AFC playoff teams.
After losing him, the team had four out of six games where the defense allowed 21+ points.
With the defense allowing high scoring often, it became their downfall against the Cincinnati Bengals.
While their offense kept them in games against other opponents, the duo of Josh Allen and Stephon Diggs wasn’t enough to get the Bills to the Super Bowl.
However, the news from Miller on his return can help their defense shut down teams in the playoffs.
With his help, the Bills can once again become Super Bowl favorites in 2023.NEXT: NFL Insider Clarifies Damar Hamlin's Status
