Rookie G Miller leaves team for death in family


The Bills have had a rough go of it in the first half of the season when it has come to injured players and other circumstances that have taken players out of Buffalo's lineup. Now just two days before their Week 7 game against the Jaguars in London, the Bills learned they'll be without starting right guard John Miller.

Miller left the team to fly back to the United State after a death in his immediate family. He returned to his native Miami to be with family members during this time of mourning.

"John Miller had a death in the family, so he will not play in this game," said head coach Rex Ryan following Friday's practice.

Veteran guard Kraig Urbik is expected to start at right guard in Miller's absence. Urbik started for Miller in Week 4 when Miller was out with a groin injury.
