For the second straight day, Matt Milano missed practice for the Buffalo Bills.

The biggest concern for the Buffalo Bills entering Week 2 against the Miami Dolphins is the health of their starting linebackers. Last weekend against the New York Jets, Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano left the game early due to injuries.

The good news is that Edmunds, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Jets, for the second straight day was able to practice on a limited basis. The real test will be tomorrow and if he is able to practice in a limited basis that should give him a chance to play but ideally, it would be full participation from the Buffalo Bills starting middle linebacker.

However, the chances for Matt Milano are not looking good as for the second straight day he did not practice. Milano suffered a hamstring injury near the end of the first half against the Jets and he was not able to return.

If Matt Milano is not able to go, the Buffalo Bills could use more nickel with A.J. Klein replacing Milano but in the Buffalo Bills base formation it would likely be Tyrel Dodson getting his first career start.

Dodson also was on the Buffalo Bills injury report due to a neck injury. He was limited on Wednesday but was able to practice in full on Thursday.

The team had two new players added to the injury report Thursday as Jerry Hughes had a calf injury and Isaiah McKenzie is dealing with a hamstring injury. Both players were limited on Thursday.

One of the surprises from yesterday’s report was that wide receiver John Brown sat out due to a foot injury. However, he was a full participant on Thursday, and looks like he will be ready to go for Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
