Bills’ Von Miller available to play amid domestic violence probe

Amid an investigation into an alleged domestic violence incident, Buffalo Bills linebacker Von Miller is at the team’s facility this week and available to play Sunday, general manager Brandon Beane said Wednesday.

“We weren’t there. We’re not the investigators,” Beane said of the incident. “We don’t, obviously, you know, we had our conversations with Von and understood what he believes happened and so, from that standpoint we can’t get into it. It’s an open investigation, and so we’ll just, we’ll let the legal process play out, and he’ll participate like normal in practice.”

Beane said the team plans to allow the investigation to play out. He said the team is in “constant communication” with the NFL and plans to follow the league’s lead.

“Anytime it’s an ongoing investigation, if something was uncovered that the commissioner does have that, at any point, if he feels there was something that, hey, this is, this doesn’t look good or something like that, if at any point that, they could,” Beane said. “But with our knowledge of what we have today, we don’t expect that.”

Miller turned himself in to police last Thursday in response to an arrest warrant in a domestic violence case involving his pregnant girlfriend, according to the Glenn Heights Police Department in suburban Dallas.

Miller was booked in DeSoto Tri-City Jail, posted bond and was released, the police department told news outlets.

Officers responded to a “major disturbance call” at the couple’s home in Dallas the morning of Nov. 29. Miller is accused of arguing with a pregnant woman and then assaulting her. The charge of assaulting a pregnant woman is a third-degree felony in Texas.

Police said Miller departed the scene before officers arrived. The alleged victim was treated for minor injuries at the scene, police said.

When asked whether the team would cut Miller if he was found guilty, Beane said, “Let’s just wait and see what happens there from that standpoint, but I think you know us, we’re going to try to do things right.”

The Bills (6-6) had a bye last week. They’re on the road Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Miller, 34, previously was investigated — but not charged — for domestic violence in 2021 in Parker, Colo.

An eight-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time Super Bowl champion, Miller has two tackles in eight games this season.

Miller has recorded 123.5 sacks in 169 games (161 starts) with the Denver Broncos (2011-19, 2021), Los Angeles Rams (2021) and Bills. He was the MVP of Super Bowl 50.
