Miller was injured in the second quarter against the Detroit Lions. He was able to leave the field under his own power before taking a cart from the Bills sideline to their locker room.

Miller traveled to Buffalo this offseason when he signed a six-year contract with the team. He had previously won Super Bowl LVI with the Los Angeles Rams after being traded from the Denver Broncos midway through last season.
