The NFL has since published an article stating that Miller believes the assault allegations against him are "100 percent false." Buffalo Bills manager Brandan Beane said he will allow Miller to play out the season.

Beane told NBC, "No one wants their name associated with any accusation like that, so that’s a natural disappointment. I’m sure he’s disappointed,” Beane said. “But things happen sometimes, and again, we have to remember people, we have to give them their fair due process. That can happen to anyone in this room. And I would hope we would all wait and let that play out before we rush to judgment.”

This is not the first time that Miller has been accused of behaving badly toward Denise. In 2021, she released text messages that she said were from him in which he allegedly said he was "praying for a miscarriage" and urged her to get an abortion.
