Bills star Von Miller out with knee injury against Lions


DETROIT (AP) — Buffalo Bills edge rusher Von Miller injured his right knee in the second quarter and was ruled out for the rest of the game against the Detroit Lions.

Miller had his right leg stepped on inadvertently by Detroit center Frank Ragnow while he was blocking another player.

Miller was evaluated on the sideline and was taken on a cart from the sideline to the locker room. He had one tackle and was credited with hurrying quarterback Jared Goff before leaving the game Thursday.

The 33-year-old Miller entered the game tied for 10th in the NFL with eight sacks.

His injury was another setback for a banged-up defense that was without injured defensive ends Greg Rousseau and A.J. Epenesa along with linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.
