The hits keep on coming for the Buffalo Bills, but that takes a back seat to the personal story unfolding. Rookie guard John Miller won't play Sunday as he deals with a death in the family. Miller is in the process of heading back to the United States to attend to the situation.

On the field, Miller's absence will exacerbate the offense's growing list of injured starters. The entire right side of the offensive line will be inactive with Miller's teammate Seantrel Henderson already declared out. Kraig Urbik will step in for Miller while Cyrus Kouandjio will replace Henderson. All together, Buffalo is down half their starting offense against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Miller was Buffalo's third-round selection out of Louisville in the 2015 NFL Draft and quickly won the starting job during the offseason. He missed Week 4 with a groin injury, a game the Bills managed just 55 yards on the ground and allowed 2 sacks.
