The Buffalo Bills placed pass-rusher Von Miller on injured reserve Thursday due to a knee injury he sustained on Thanksgiving Day against the Detroit Lions.

Miller will be forced to miss at least four games before he can return, making him eligible to come back for a Week 17 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane told ESPN's Adam Schefter that the team hopes to have Miller back for a late-season run.

"We've been assessing Von this week and seeing how he is, and we don't want to rush him back. This gives us a chance to go ahead and count tonight's game and three more on injured reserve," Beane said Thursday.

The 33-year-old has been one of Buffalo's key contributors on defense, notching eight sacks, 10 tackles for loss, and 12 quarterback hits in 11 games.

A.J. Epenesa, Shaq Lawson, and Boogie Basham will likely see more playing time in Miller's absence.
