ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills starting linebacker Matt Milano has had surgery to repair a broken left leg and will miss the remainder of the season.
Coach Sean McDermott provided the update on Monday, a day after Milano broke his fibula in a 27-23 loss to the New York Jets. Milano was hurt when his leg became twisted in a pile after he stopped quarterback Sam Darnold from scoring at Buffalo's 1 on third-and-goal from the 4 with 1:22 remaining.
Milano was examined by team doctors and eventually carted off the field.
In updating the team's other players hurt Sunday, McDermott listed starting running back LeSean McCoy and backup Chris Ivory as being day to day. McCoy left in the first quarter with a hamstring injury. Ivory did not return after hurting his shoulder in the third quarter.
Buffalo is 4-9 and hosts the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
