Buffalo Bills offensive guard John Miller departed Sunday’s game in the second half with an oblique strain, according to Bills head coach Sean McDermott at his usual Monday press conference. The severity of the injury is still being evaluated, making Miller an early question mark for next Sunday’s battle with the Miami Dolphins. Interior backup Ryan Groy played in Miller’s place, with Vlad Ducasse inactive for the first time this season. If Miller can’t go, the Bills will need to decide whether to activate Ducasse or rookie Ike Boettger, who’s spent the whole season as an inactive member of the roster.
Cornerback Lafayette Pitts, who suffered a head injury early in the game, is in the concussion protocol going into this week. Also in the concussion protocol is veteran quarterback Derek Anderson.
The only other injury of note is tight end Charles Clay (hamstring), who was noted as “making progress” at Monday’s media scrum. Rookie wideout Robert Foster, who has 199 yards and a touchdown over the past two weeks, survived a hard hit near the end of the game with no lingering injuries to report during the ensuing week of practice.
