According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, he has been told by a person close to teh situation that Koa Misi and Philip Wheeler are out for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. Misi is battling an ankle injury and had a cast on yesterday while Wheeler is battling at thumb injury.
This means that the Dolphins will have three backup linebackers for the game against the Bills but some would argue that the backups are better than the starters. With a ferocious rushing attack coming from the Bills, the defensive line will have to step up and take the burden off of the linebackers.
It is expected that Jason Trusnik will play in the middle in place of Misi with Jelani Jenkins and Johnathan Freeny on the outside. Chris McCain will play in certain pass rushing situations and newly signed linebacker Kelvin Sheppard could also see some time in various packages. If you're wondering about Jordan Tripp, he's already been ruled out for Sunday's game along with Mike Pouncey and Terrence Fede.
