Linebackers Matt Milano and Tremaine Edmunds are out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. Head coach Sean McDermott announced the decision during this morning's media session. Edmunds has a shoulder injury and Milano is dealing with a hamstring injury. Both players sustained their injuries in Sunday's game against the Jets.
Linebacker Del'Shawn Phillips is also out. He hasn't practiced this week with a quad injury that happened during the Jets game.
Milano did not participate in any practices this week. Edmunds was limited wearing a red non-contact jersey during Wednesday and Thursday practice.
McDermott explained even though they will be without two starting linebackers on Sunday, there are still talented options in the group.
"We've got some pieces with A.J. [Klein], Tyler Matakevich and Tyrel Dodson," McDermott said. "We just signed Deon Lacey there. We've got some things that are in the works, we'll just see how it plays out for game time."

Klein, who was added to the team during the offseason, will add leadership to the group of younger linebackers on the field this Sunday.
"He's a guy we have a lot of trust and confidence in, a lot of faith in," McDermott explained. "We were with him in Carolina for a few [years] back then. He's a guy that we expect to come in and do a good job."
McDermott said it's too early to tell if Milano or Edmunds could end up on the Injured Reserve list.
