  • Bills' Matt Milano: Returns 43-yard pick-six

    Milano tallied three tackles (two solo) and one interception returned for a 43-yard touchdown during Monday's 41-7 victory over Tennessee. Milano intercepted a pass intended for Nick Westbrook-Ikhine in the third quarter before he was forced to exit Monday's win with a stinger. The starting inside linebacker still tied Tremaine Edmunds and Jordan Poyer for the Bills' second-most defensive snaps played against the Titans, and he will maintain a prominent role for Buffalo when healthy this season.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Full participant Wednesday

    Milano (neck) was a full participant during Wednesday's walk-through practice, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Milano was ruled out for the remainder of Monday's blowout win over the Titans after suffering what was initially reported as a stinger. He's now being listed with a neck injury, but it doesn't appear to be a major issue and he should be good to go for Sunday's matchup against the Dolphins. Through two games, the veteran linebacker has 10 tackles and an interception, which he returned for a touchdown.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Won't return Monday

    Milano (stinger) was ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against the Titans. Milano appears to have sustained a stinger injury at some point Monday night, though the exact nature and severity of this injury are unclear. However, with Buffalo up big late in the fourth quarter, it's possible that the linebacker's absence could be more of a precautionary move heading into the team's next game against the Dolphins on Sunday.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Ready for Patriots

    Milano (shoulder) does not have an injury designation for Monday's game against New England. Milano logged two limited practices to begin the week, but he turned in a full session Saturday. His return to health will be a key for a Bills defense that will head into its first full game without Tre'Davious White (knee). Through 10 games this season, Milano has tallied 57 tackles, one sack and three passes defended while logging a snap rate above 75 percent in nine contests.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Limited to start week

    Milano was listed as a limited participant for Thursday's practice due to a shoulder injury. Given that this is the first practice of the week and Milano is at least practicing on some level, we'd be shocked if he didn't play in Monday's huge game against the division-leading Patriots. The bigger question is whether Milano -- who's posted at least eight tackles in each of the past three games -- can shake an injury designation before Saturday's final report.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Gets nine tackles

    Milano recorded nine tackles (three solo) in the Bills' 41-15 loss to the Colts on Sunday. Milano's nine tackles ties his mark from the previous week, which are season highs. It appears he may be picking up steam as the season progresses after an injury-riddled 2020 and a nagging hamstring injury early in 2021. Milano will look to keep rolling Thursday against the Saints.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Avoids injury designation

    Milano (shoulder) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup with the Colts. Milano was limited at practice all week due to a shoulder injury, but the issue won't affect his availability for Sunday's contest. The 27-year-old should fill his usual every-down role for the Bills this weekend.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Starts week with DNP

    Milano missed Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder issue. Milano didn't appear injured during Sunday's lopsided win over the Jets, so perhaps this absence is more of the maintenance-related variety. With teammate Tremaine Edmunds out of action in Week 10 and starting Week 11 with a DNP, Milano's level of participation as the week goes on is worth watching for those using the Buffalo defense.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Sheds injury designation

    Milano (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation heading into Monday's game against Tennessee, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Milano practiced fully Saturday after his reps were limited Thursday and Friday. As a result, he'll be back on the field following his one-game absence.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Limited again

    Milano (hamstring) was limited at practice for the second straight day Friday. Milano missed last week's big victory over the Chiefs after hurting himself in Week 4, so his presence for this week's trip to Tennessee is no sure thing. He does get the benefit of an extra day this week, as the Bills don't play until Monday. We'll get an official status for the key linebacker Saturday.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Will be game-time decision

    Milano (hamstring) remains a true game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Chiefs, Josina Anderson of USA Today reports. Anderson reports that Milano will go through a workout with Buffalo's trainer and linebacker coaches ahead of the game, which will determine his status for Sunday night's contest. If the 27-year-old is available, he will likely not be at 100 percent, but the Bills defense is a better unit when he is out there, even if not at full health.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Murky for Week 5

    Millano did not practice Thursday for the second straight day due to a hamstring injury. The starting linebacker is probably going to have to log some form of activity Friday ahead of a big matchup against the Chiefs. The Bills have had a difficult enough time trying to slow down Patrick Mahomes & Co. in recent matchups, so coming up with a scheme to do so without one of their key defenders would add even more to the challenge.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Doubtful to return

    Milano is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Texans due to a hamstring injury, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Milano went to the injury tent in the first half of Sunday's matchup after he recorded a pair of tackles in the first quarter. If he's unable to return, Andre Smith will likely see additional work.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Not listed on injury report

    Milano (mouth) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report. Milano picked up a mouth injury early in camp but is ready to go for Week 1. The 27-year-old recorded 45 total tackles, 3.5 sacks and one interception in 10 games last season and is set to start at outside linebacker in Buffalo's 4-3 defense.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Suffers mouth injury

    Milano left Monday's practice due to a mouth injury, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Typically, a mouth injury isn't too much to worry about for NFL players, but we'll keep tabs on it until the starting outside linebacker is back at practice.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: May be expensive to keep

    Milano is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, Jay Skurski of The Buffalo News reports. The starting outside linebacker was hampered by injuries in 2020, but there's no doubt the Bills are a better team when he's out there doing his thing with fellow starter Tremaine Edmunds. In fact, of the 13 regular and postseason games that Milano played in, Sunday's loss to the Chiefs was the only one the Bills lost. The Bills clearly want him back but could be up against the cap, so if the demand ends up being super high for the Boston College product, the team may have to let him go. Milano posted 101 total tackles in 2019 -- when he was mostly healthy -- and did post 3.5 sacks and an interception in more limited action this past season.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Big numbers in big win

    Milano posted eight tackles and a sack in Monday's 38-9 win over the Patriots. This was easily Milano's best game since he came back from a pectoral injury in Week 13, and it was also his first contest where he saw more than 50 percent of the defensive snaps in that span. Milano played 88 percent of the defensive plays Monday, as much as any other Buffalo defender, which means he was on the field for all the action until the game was out of hand and the starters were rested. Milano seems finally past the injury, and the tackle machine could be a sneaky IDP play in playoff leagues that use that style.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Returning for Week 13

    Milano (pectoral) was activated from injured reserve ahead of Monday's game against the 49ers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The news isn't overly surprising, as the 26-year-old traveled with the team Sunday for the trip out west. Milano hasn't seen game action since Week 8 and has 21 total tackles, 1.5 sacks and one interception in five games this season.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Won't face Seahawks

    Coach Sean McDermott said Friday that Milano (pectoral) is ruled out for Sunday's game against Seattle, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports. Milano had managed to play through his lingering pectoral injury the last two games, though he was limited to a third or less of defensive snaps versus both the Jets and Patriots. That the standout linebacker will now be forced to miss a key game against Seattle could indicate that he's suffered a setback in his recovery.

  • Bills' Matt Milano: Not practicing Wednesday

    Milano (undisclosed) won't practice Wednesday, Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic reports. It's possible this absence is just precautionary for the linebacker, who has already battled hamstring and pectoral injuries this season. If Milano's unable to practice Thursday, that would start to cast serious doubt on his status for Sunday's game against Seattle.
