The Bills have agreed to a 4-year, $44 million extension with LB Matt Milano, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The deal includes $24 million guaranteed. It obviously locks Milano in as a full-timer for at least the next couple of seasons. Milano struggled through hamstring and pectoral injuries last season that limited him to just 3 games of at least 50% playing time. It's particularly telling that Buffalo paid up in spite of that. Milano carries top-20 IDP scoring upside at his position.
Bills LB Matt Milano finished the week with a full practice Saturday and carries no game status into Monday night against the Titans. That's noteworthy after he missed the Week 5 contest in Kansas City with a hamstring injury. Assuming Milano gets back to full playing time, he carries plenty of upside against a Titans offense that has supplied the 2nd most fantasy points to LBs so far.
Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) is inactive for tonight's game against the Chiefs. That should mean starter-level playing time for A.J. Klein.
Bills LB Matt Milano is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Chiefs with a hamstring injury. He missed practice Wednesday and Thursday before returning for limited work Friday. The late kickoff plus a negative scoring matchup for LBs makes Milano a tough guy to wait for in Week 5 IDP lineups. Try to go another route if you can help it. In deep leagues where you plan to wait, teammate A.J. Klein can serve as insurance. He'd likely see full or near-full time work if Milano sits. Consider available Chiefs, Colts and Ravens LBs as options as well. Elsewhere on the defense, S Jordan Poyer and CB Taron Johnson are ready to return after missing last week. DE Gregory Rousseau is also good to go after opening the week missing practice with a toe injury. CB Tre'Davious White was limited in practice every day with a shoulder issue but carries no injury status into the game. So he should be set for normal playing time as well.
Bills LB Matt Milano left Sunday's win over the Texans with a hamstring injury. We'll see how serious the issue is, but it marks the 3rd straight season that Milano has injured a hamstring. If he is set to miss more time, A.J. Klein would likely step into full-time duty with Tremaine Edmunds. Klein had 5 games last year where he played 88+% of the snaps, as Milano dealt with multiple injuries. The veteran delivered good fantasy numbers over that span, including a stretch with 4.5 sacks over 3 weeks.
Bills LB Matt Milano will miss at least the next 5 days as a close contact to the staff member who tested positive for COVID. It’s the same situation affecting WRs Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis, which means Milano is also unvaccinated. Fellow Bills LB A.J. Klein is out for the same reason. As long as both guys test negative, they’ll be back after the 5 days. We’ll see where the situation goes from here
