Bills' Matt Milano: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

This move guarantees that Milano will miss the Bills' next two games, but he could return to action following the team's Week 11 bye. It's a major loss for the Bills' defense, as Milano is a strong cover linebacker and has registered 21 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three pass breakups and an interception through five games. Andre Smith is expected to start at weak-side linebacker moving forward.

Bills' Matt Milano: Won't face Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Bills' Matt Milano: Active against New England
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game versus the Patriots.

Milano returned to the lineup last week after a two-game hiatus, and he didn't handle his typical workload, playing just 33 percent of the defensive snaps. Perhaps his responsibilities will ramp up against the Patriots, as the standout linebacker is too much of a difference-maker to stay on the sidelines.

Bills' Matt Milano: Considered questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots.

Milano has been limited in practice all week, a hint that he could operate under a snap count if he does suit up against New England. While Milano normally handles a starting role for Buffalo, he only played 19 defensive snaps against the Jets in Week 7, his first game back from an injury suffered in Week 4.

Bills' Matt Milano: Limited to begin week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

The Bills are continuing to ease Milano back into action, while he played just 19 defensive snaps during Sunday's win against the Jets. The standout linebacker will work to ramp up his activity ahead of the Week 8 divisional contest against the Patriots.

Bills' Matt Milano: Eased back in
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano tallied two tackles and half a sack during Sunday's win at the Jets after missing the two previous games with a pectoral injury.

Milano is still far from perfect health, as coach Sean McDermott has stated the team will have to build up his reps. He was only able to play 19 defensive snaps Sunday, though given the magnitude of this week's game against the rival Patriots -- plus the extra week of healing -- we'd expect Milano to have a significant jump in play count for Week 8.

Bills' Matt Milano: Back at it Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) is active for Sunday's game at the Jets.

Milano was a true question mark after missing Week 5 and 6, both prime-time losses for the Bills where their defense got exposed while missing a bunch of plays Milano usually is around. The Bills are still a pretty injury-depleted team, so Milano's return is a big boost, even in a heavily favored game.

Bills' Matt Milano: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

The 26-year-old missed the past two games with the pectoral injury, but he may be able to retake the field Sunday. Milano practiced as a limited participant all week, so he could end up being a game-time decision.

October 21, 2020 01:24 PM
Bills' Matt Milano: Back to work, limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano, who's missed the last two games with a pectoral injury, is practicing on a limited basis Wednesday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.

The Bills have been gashed by the Titans and Chiefs the last two games, so Milano's ability to play this weekend against the Jets will be an important factor toward the team getting back to its winning ways. Milano may be more important than any player on the team outside of Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs and Tre'Davious White.

Bills' Matt Milano: Unable to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Chiefs, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Milano will spend a second straight game on the sidelines despite practicing fully Friday and logging a limited session Saturday. Tyrel Dodson is expected to start at weak-side linebacker in Milano's place against the Chiefs' powerhouse offense.

Bills' Matt Milano: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bills have listed Milano (pectoral) as questionable for Monday's game against the Chiefs.

Milano appeared to be back to full health after full participation at Friday's practice, but his limited workload Saturday has led to a questionable designation. Final confirmation on his status will come closer to kickoff Monday.

October 16, 2020 03:32 PM
Bills' Matt Milano: Back to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) practiced in full Friday, paving the way for him to suit up Monday against the Chiefs, Sal Capaccio of the Bills' official site reports.

Milano has missed two of Buffalo's first five games due to hamstring and pectoral injuries, but he's been terrific when out there, totaling 18 tackles, a sack and an interception. The versatile linebacker will be a welcome addition to Buffalo's defense for a daunting matchup against a Chiefs team that's churning out 29.8 points per game.

Bills' Matt Milano: Upgrades to limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) was considered a limited practice participant for Thursday's jog-through session, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

While this wasn't a rigorous practice after the Bills got back at it following a rare Tuesday game, Milano did miss practice all last week before ultimately missing the Week 5 contest, so this bodes well for his chances of suiting up for another primetime game Monday, this time against the Chiefs. The team badly felt the loss of its starting outside linebacker in the 42-16 loss, with the Titans scoring a touchdown all six times they were in the red zone.

Bills' Matt Milano: Out for Week 5
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (pectoral) did not participate in Saturday's walkthrough practice and has been ruled out for Tuesday's game in Tennessee, the Bills official site reports.

The Bills have the look of a powerhouse team, but the one area where they don't feature a lot of depth is at linebacker, where Milano is a solid three-down starter. The loss will be felt, especially against a team like the Titans that likes to pound the ball with Derrick Henry. This will be Milano's second missed game this season, as he sat out Week 2 with a hamstring injury after hurting himself in the opener.

Bills' Matt Milano: Starts week with absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano, who left Sunday's win over the Raiders with a pectoral injury, will not practice Wednesday, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Considering coach Sean McDermott labeled Milano "week-to-week" instead of "day-to-day" in his Monday press conference, the linebacker's status for Sunday's game in Tennessee is very much up in the air. Then again, we can probably say the same thing about the game itself considering the Titans' current COVID-19 issues.

Bills' Matt Milano: Receives week-to-week label
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McDermott said Milano (pectoral) is considered "week-to-week,", Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

The 26-year-old exited Sunday's win over the Raiders during the fourth quarter due to the pectoral injury, recording six tackles (three solo) and one pass breakup before leaving the contest. Milano's availablility for Week 5 remains up in the air, though his status should be updated later in the week once the Bills return to practice.

October 4, 2020 07:16 PM
Bills' Matt Milano: Questionable to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a pectoral injury.

Milano was forced out of Sunday's contest midway through the fourth quarter. The Bills will rely on Tyrel Dodson to handle expanded defensive snaps as long as Milano remains sidelined.

Bills' Matt Milano: Fills out stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano posted eight tackles, a sack, a pass defensed and two quarterback hits during Sunday's win over the Rams.

Now that's what you call a return from a hamstring injury. Milano had a bigger statistical day than teammate Tremaine Edmunds (five tackles), who also returned after a one-game absence. Expect Milano to continue his usual stat-filling ways when the Bills take on the Raiders in Las Vegas. He was on the field for all 69 defensive plays Sunday, so assume he's close to full health again.

September 27, 2020 12:12 PM
Bills' Matt Milano: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Milano (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game versus the Rams.

Milano sat out of Week 2's matchup versus the Dolphins, but he practiced fully Friday and is ready to rock Sunday. It's unclear if he'll face any sort of pitch count in his return to action, but if he logs a full workload, he's a solid IDP contributor coming off a 101-tackle season.
