Miami linebacker Thomas out

The Miami Dolphins will be without star linebacker Zach Thomas for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills.

Thomas was ruled out today after experiencing more migraine headaches. Thomas had practiced fully Thursday and was optimistic about facing the Bills.

Thomas was diagnosed with whiplash after the car he was driving was rear-ended on the Florida Turnpike after Miami's Oct. 21 game against New England.

Meanwhile, the Bills have some injury concerns of their own.

Receiver Josh Reed missed Friday's practice due to stiffness in his back. He's listed as questionable. Receiver Roscoe Parrish also is questionable, but Parrish was able to practice Friday. He sat out the previous two days with a sore thigh. Coach Dick Jauron said he was optimistic Parrish could play. Defensive end Aaron Schobel missed practice because he was ill. He's listed as questionable.

Backup tight end/offensive lineman Matt Murphy is out due to what's believed to be a torn calf muscle suffered in Thursday's practice. It's likely he is out for the rest of the season.

The Bills will make a decision on his roster status next week. They already lost backup tight end Derek Schouman this week to a season-ending ankle injury.
