Bills fans hold breath for news on Von Miller, Dion Dawkins

NFL: NOV 24 Bills at Lions

The concerns have dramatically shifted for the Buffalo Bills over the past seven days.

Last Friday, players like left tackle Dion Dawkins had real concerns as to whether the team would get to Detroit for a Week 11 game against the Browns. This Friday, with a pair of wins since Sunday in their new home away from home, the Bills have to worry about a pair of key players.

Pass rusher Von Miller exited on a cart with a knee injury. It’s been reported to be a “knee sprain,” which technically applies to a wide range of potential knee injuries. The MRI conducted today will tell the team how much time Miller may miss.

Dawkins suffered an ankle injury, and didn’t return. He seemed to be moving around without limitation after the game.

After the win over the Lions, coach Sean McDermott told reporters that he had no injury updates. Injury updates are surely coming today, one way or another.

Until then, plenty of members of Bills Mafia will be holding their breath to see whether either or both players will be available next Thursday night against the Patriots, and/or beyond.

  1. He’s most likely done for the season. I’ll admit I’m no doctor, but I have watched enough episodes of Grey’s Anatomy to consider myself somewhat of an expert on these type of things.

  2. Tua Tagovailoa, Byron Jones, Brandon Jones, Austin Jackson, Emmanuel Ogbah, Liam Eichenberg, Nik Needham….

    Just saying.

    We’re still looking forward to December 18th.

  3. Injuries aren’t an excuse they are a major factor in football, troll
    We all go through rough patches at various times, sometimes you get lucky sometimes not so much
    This season has been a bit of a nightmare for Buffalo
    This team at full strength crushes any team

    Who were they missing week 3? A couple of safeties who couldn’t hang with Tyreek last year too?

    I’ll let you know when my starting QB loses a game to someone other than my former starting QB.

  6. The Bills haven’t made any excuses but to ignore the sheer volume of major significant lost time our starters have had is ignorant. Deepest team in the league. All the Miami fans puffing their chest – beat us barely on a short week with a decimated secondary. Tuas 186 yards against a rag tag secondary missing all 4 starters. Poyer,, Hyde and White replaced with 2 rookies, one a 6th rounder. Miami made plays they win congrats. Barely. Let’s slow down. The bills are playing mediocre at best this season and are still the class of the division injuries and all. Pats are next – we’ll deal with the fish when the time comes our backups are still better than your starters

  7. And did the Miami fan above watch a different game? Hill did nothing against backups and a practice squad guy 2 big passes to Waddle. Like I said they won, they beat us but you’d think tua threw for 409 yards. Allen missed a wide open McKenzie – that’s how close you were to an L. But ok hang your hat on that one. Like I said we’re hurt and playing poorly and we’re still the class of the afc

  8. If you have the QB you’re going to always be in it.. see Allen yesterday. See mahomes (whose teams perennially have had major injuries including to him)
    A top flight qb with some weapons keeps you in every game.

    Ummm….Their entire starting secondary comes to mind….
    I see Miami is getting a little pumped.
    LOTS of football left, including the playoffs.
    By that time, you might find the Bills at full strength. And, no matter where the game, we’ll be there.

  10. Good luck Von, hope it’s not season ending. If it is, Tre White needs to progress to at least 90% back to full strength before the playoffs begin IMO. With the other very good corners the Bills have too, it will buy the DLine more time to get to the QB no matter what. Need Edmonds back though to solidify the D especially vs the run game. Best of luck Bills Mafia.
