AFC East star watch: Bills taking “One day at a time” approach with Von Miller

After dismantling the Miami Dolphins in an AFC East showdown, the Buffalo Bills head over the pond to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in London.

With Josh Allen and the Bills’ offense rolling, the focus in this game is Buffalo’s defense vs Trevor Lawrence and a Jaguars’ offense that have the capability of being an explosive team. The Bills’ defense came to play in shutting down the Dolphins’ offense, but can they be that kind of defense game-to-game.

After losing top cornerback Tre’Davious White for the season, the Bills will get a boost eventually with the return of Von Miller.  The 34-year-old sack master was eligible to practice this week and is questionable for the Week 5 matchup.

Will he make his 2023 debut in London?

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott is taking that “one day at a time” approach which means Bills fans could see Miller spark the defense on Sunday.

"I think the biggest thing is the first day when you're coming off an injury like that, you want to get through it," McDermott said, via ESPN. "I applaud him for making it through that first practice because that's a milestone in and of itself because of the months and months and the hours of rehab. So, I think that's really where we're at. I think Day 2 was better than Day 1. He looked like he was getting more comfortable."


It looks like things are trending in the right direction for Miller who gave himself close to a 95 percent chance of playing against Lawrence and the Jaguars.

Sounds like he’s suiting up.  Watch out AFC East!
