BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller will dress for the first time in nearly three weeks when the Sabres host the Detroit Red Wings on Friday night.

Miller, who hasn't played since sustaining a concussion when Boston's Milan Lucic bowled him over in Buffalo's loss to the Bruins on Nov. 12, is expected to back up Jhonas Enroth against Detroit.

Miller may get his first start since the injury on Saturday when the Sabres play at Nashville.

Miller began taking shots on the ice earlier in the week, and participated in his first full practice on Wednesday.

The Sabres (13-10-1) were 3-4-1 without Miller.
