Milano has gone from being a low-round draft pick in 2017 to one of the team's most consistent performers (61 tackles, six passes defensed, two interceptions), so any time missed would affect what's turned out to be a strong Buffalo defense. With the Bills on bye in Week 11, there's a decent chance he'll be back for the team's next outing in Week 12 against the Jaguars.
Milano (head) recorded six tackles (three solo) and an interception in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Milano's head injury remains unclear, but he was having a solid game prior to exiting in the fourth quarter. He now has two interceptions this year, improving upon the one he had in his rookie campaign in 2017. Looking ahead, Milano and the Bills will face off against the Jaguars in Week 11.
Milano is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jets due to a head injury.
Milano exited Sunday's tilt against the Jets during the fourth quarter, so it won't necessarily reflect negatively on his health if he's unable to return. As long as Milano remains sidelined, one of Julian Stanford or Deon Lacey will slot into the starting lineup.
Milano posted seven tackles (five solo) and two passes defensed during Monday's loss to the Patriots.
The numbers probably don't do Milano's performance due justice, as he was all over the field in giving his underdog team a fighting chance, at least for three quarters until New England pulled away. Milano -- who heads into Week 9 with 53 tackles, 1.0 sacks, five passes defensed, an interception and a three fumble recoveries -- could be leaned on even more this week against the Bears if rookie teammate Tremaine Edmunds isn't cleared from the concussion protocol.
Milano posted eight tackles (three solo, two for loss) and a pass defensed in Sunday's loss to the Texans.
Milano was in for all 61 defensive snaps, as his play has been superb in recent weeks to the point where the Bills didn't even put backup Ramon Humber into any defensive plays Sunday, something that had been happening earlier in the season when Milano's play was a bit shakier. Milano's not as much of a playmaker as teammate Tremaine Edmunds, but his three-down status to go with 42 tackles, three passes defensed, three fumble recoveries, 1.0 sacks and one interception all combine to make him IDP worthy.
