Buffalo Bills edge-rusher Von Miller did suffer some damage to his lateral meniscus, but is targeting a return against the New York Jets in Week 14.

Speaking publicly for the first time since he suffered the injury on November 24, Miller addressed the injury – which some Bills fans thought could be season-threatening at the time – on his podcast 'The VonCast'.

"I do have some lateral meniscus damage and it's going to have to be addressed," Miller said on the podcast. "But I do feel like I can, you know, play through that, so I'm just gonna wait a little bit, and let the swelling go down for about seven-to-10 days and, hopefully, right before the Jets game I will be back."

Miller, an eight-time Pro Bowl selection, was initially ruled out indefinitely with what the team called a knee sprain after being carted off the field during Buffalo’s 28-25 Thanksgiving Day win in Detroit.

The 32-year-old pass-rusher will miss the Bills' (8-3) game against the New England Patriots (6-5) on Thursday.

Playing in his first season with the Bills, Miller has totalled eight sacks in 11 games after he helped the Los Angeles Rams win the Super Bowl this past season.

Miller is the NFL’s active leader with 123-and-a-half career sacks, placing him 19th on the league’s all-time list of sacks leaders.
