Miller had left the Bills game on Thanksgiving after reports surfaced of a knee injury that he had sustained against the Detroit Lions.
“Just going to wait a little bit, wait a little bit, let the swelling go down for about seven to 10 days. And hopefully right before the Jets game, I will be back.” https://t.co/Fuuc50KWnC

However, he has provided optimism that he will be back for the divisional matchup with the New York Jets in Week 14.
Where The Bills Currently Stand
The Bills are currently tied for first place in the AFC East with the Miami Dolphins.
They are slated to play the New England Patriots on Thursday Night Football, then play the Jets, Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, and the Patriots to close out the season.
With four divisional games on the horizon, the Bills must keep their place at the top, to ensure a playoff opportunity.
Miller being out against the Patriots certainly hurts, but the fact that he is hoping to be back against the Jets is certainly positive.
After spending his first nine seasons as a member of the Denver Broncos and then winning a title with the Los Angeles Rams, Miller has made his presence known in a big way on the Bills this season.
In 11 games, he has recorded 19 total tackles and eight total sacks.
Although this might not be the most stunning statistical season of his career, Miller’s veteran presence has been a bright spot for an otherwise young Bills defense.
With the addition of Miller and their improved offensive play as well, the Bills are certainly one of the best teams in the NFL.
The AFC is going to be an exciting conference for years to come.
