NFL Network reported there is concern about the lateral meniscus of Miller, who underwent an MRI on Friday.

The eight-time Pro Bowl selection and Super Bowl 50 MVP was ushered to the medical tent on the visitors’ sideline before he was carted to the locker room. He quickly was ruled out for the rest of the game.

Miller, who won Super Bowls with the Denver Broncos and the Los Angeles Rams, has recorded eight sacks and 21 tackles in 11 games (all starts) this season.

He has totaled 123.5 sacks, 561 tackles, 27 forced fumbles and nine fumble recoveries in 161 career games (all starts) with the Broncos, Rams and Bills.

The Bills (8-3) next play Thursday on the road against division rival New England.

Georgia DT Jalen Carter, potential No. 1 pick, sidelined 1-2 weeks

Georgia defensive tackle Jalen Carter is out 1-2 weeks with a knee injury, head coach Kirby Smart said on Monday.

Carter, a projected top-five NFL draft pick, injured the medial collateral ligament in his left knee when he took a shot to that area in Saturday’s game against Missouri.

“We don’t know how long it’s going to be, but it doesn’t look good for this week,” Smart said.

Carter entered the game with an ankle injury, but Smart said he lobbied to re-enter the game. Georgia (5-0) faces Auburn this week, followed by a game against Vanderbilt and the No. 2-ranked Bulldogs’ bye week.

ESPN ranks Carter as the No. 3 overall prospect in the 2023 NFL Draft and The Athletic ranks him as the top defensive prospect in the draft.

Jets T Mekhi Becton (knee) likely out for 2022 season

The knee injury sustained in practice by New York Jets offensive tackle Mekhi Becton likely will keep him out for the entire 2022 season, coach Robert Saleh confirmed Tuesday.

He was diagnosed with an avulsion fracture of the right kneecap, NFL Network reported. Saleh said Becton will get a second opinion on Wednesday.

On Monday, Saleh said a preliminary exam showed that Becton’s knee was stable and “doesn’t seem like a big deal.” Tests run on the knee of the 2020 first-round draft pick proved otherwise, though.

The 6-foot-7, 363-pound Becton, 23, was activated from the physically unable to perform list when the Jets opened training camp last month in Florham Park, N.J.

He sustained a dislocated right kneecap and MCL sprain in Week 1 of 2021 and missed the rest of the season.

Saleh said Becton had worked hard to return from last season’s injury and that he expects he’ll come back to camp next summer, recovered and ready to prove why the Jets selected him No. 11 overall.

“We love Mekhi. We appreciate everything he’s done,” Saleh said. “His ride is not over. His story is not over. He’s got (the) full support of this organization.”

As a rookie, Becton started 13 of 14 games at left tackle. The Jets were moving him to right tackle for this season, with George Fant on the left side.

The Jets will host the Baltimore Ravens to open the season on Sept. 11.

Reports: Rams WR Van Jefferson (knee) to see specialist

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Van Jefferson will consult with a specialist about a knee injury that has sidelined him at the start of training camp, multiple outlets reported Sunday.

NFL Network said the appointment is scheduled for Monday.

Cooper Kupp is the No. 1 target for quarterback Matthew Stafford, but Jefferson, along with offseason acquisition Allen Robinson, was expected to play a big role in the offense this season. Robert Woods was traded to Tennessee and free-agent Odell Beckham Jr. remains unsigned.

Jefferson, 26, is entering his third season with the Rams, who selected him in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

In 17 games last season (all starts), Jefferson caught 50 passes for 802 yards and six touchdowns. In the playoffs, he caught nine passes for 102 yards in four games for the Super Bowl-winning Rams.
