Insider dishes on ‘Secrecy’ surrounding Bills $28 million lb’s injury…

The Buffalo Bills lost a key part of their defense when linebacker Matt Milano fractured his leg during their 25-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 4.

Milano, who signed a two-year, $28.3 million extension in March, is one of the best defensive players not just in Buffalo, but in the entire league. He went down after colliding with teammate, Leonard Floyd, and Jaguars offensive tackle Walker Little.

While NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport revealed on October 8 that Milano would require what’s expected to be season-ending surgery, the Bills have not ruled out the All-Pro from making a return.

The Buffalo News’ Jay Skurksi addressed the mystery surrounding Milano’s status in his mailbag column on Sunday, November 5.

Because the Bills “haven’t officially said Milano’s season is over, “there is at least some hope” he could return at some point. Skurski wrote, “With Milano, the question of just how much damage was done to his knee in addition to the broken leg he suffered has yet to be answered. If he tore his ACL, forget it, he’s done for the year.

“The Bills haven’t said that, though. Why they’re treating it with such secrecy is a bit of a mystery – welcome to the world of covering the NFL – but the longer that goes on, the more hope builds that he might be able to return at some point.”
