Miller is expected to miss several weeks following the procedure, but the hope is that he’ll be able to return at some point later in the season.
A 6-1, 226-pound senior from Lakeland, Florida, Miller recorded 8 combined tackles in Florida’s wins over Florida Atlantic and South Florida.
As a junior in 2020, he posted 88 tackles, including 7.5 for losses, and 3.5 sacks.
