BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills will be without two of their starting linebackers for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano have been ruled out by coach Sean McDermott after both were injured in the team's Week 1 win over the New York Jets.

Edmunds, Buffalo's Pro Bowl middle linebacker, is out with a right shoulder injury. Milano, a starter on the outside, is out with a hamstring injury. Milano had a leaping interception for Buffalo in the season-opening win over the Jets.

McDermott did not rule out the possibility of one or both players going on injured reserve.

Reserve linebacker Del'Shawn Phillips is also out. Phillips suffered a quadriceps injury against the Jets.

Veteran A.J. Klein is set to have an increased role on defense as a result. Klein tied for the team lead in tackles in Week 1 with five.

Player Notes
Aaron Jones Oct 24 7:20pm ET

After coming down with a calf strain at practice on Friday, Aaron Jones is now expected to miss the Week 7 game against the Texans. This is a tough one for fantasy football managers, as Jones has been a reliable RB1 all season long and may be difficult to replace in fantasy lineups on short notice. Fourth-year running back Jamaal Williams is now expected to act as the lead RB, but rookie AJ Dillon will be in the mix as well and should see more touches than usual. Dexter Williams was added to the Packers active roster on Saturday as well for additional running back depth. Consider Williams a plug-and-play RB2/FLEX option, while Dillon looks more like an RB3/RB4 flier for deeper leagues. Both are also intriguing lower-cost options for DFS lineups, depending on the contest format.

Aaron Jones Oct 24 7:03pm ET

Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones (calf) isn't expected to play Sunday, Oct. 25, and the team is planning on him not playing, according to sources Saturday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Spin: It's a big blow for fantasy managers. Packers RBs Jamaal Williams, AJ Dillon and Dexter Williams should all play roles with Dillon being the most appealing for fantasy purposes.

Los Angeles Rams WR Robert Woods (groin) was a limited participant at practice Saturday, Oct. 24, but doesn't carry an injury designation into the Week 7 game against the Chicago Bears Monday, Oct. 26.
