Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott told Howard Simon and Jeremy White during his weekly Friday appearance on WGR that linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano will both be out for the team's Week 2 matchup with the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.
Edmunds injured his shoulder in last week's win over the New York Jets and has been limited at practice all this week. Meanwhile, Milano hasn't practiced at all after injuring his hamstring in the game.
McDermott did not rule out the possibility of one or both players going on injured reserve.
“Too early to tell at this point,” McDermott said.
Both Edmunds and Milano have been two of Buffalo’s best defenders in recent seasons. Edmunds came into his own in his second season and led the Bills in tackles with 115 last year.
A.J. Klein and Tyrel Dodson are the team's primary backup linebackers, along with Tyler Matakevich. Linebacker Del'Shawn Phillips also hasn't practiced this week due to a quad injury and the team recently signed Deon Lacey to their practice squad, where they also have Andre Smith.
