Koa Misi, Jelani Jenkins doubtful for Patriots

Don't count on Miami Dolphins linebackers Jelani Jenkins or Koa Misi to play against the New England Patriots on Sunday.

Both players missed their third consecutive day of practice on Friday and are listed as doubtful for the game, meaning there is a 75 percent chance they will not play.

With Misi and Jenkins -- two-thirds of Miami's starting linebacker corps -- unlikely to play, the Dolphins will ask Jason Trusnik and Kelvin Sheppard to play in their place.

Phillip Wheeler is Miami's lone healthy starting linebacker.

Nate Garner (illness) and Anthony Johnson (ankle) are out this week. Johnson suffered his ankle injury in practice on Thursday and was on crutches afterward.

CB Cortland Finnegan, who has missed four games, is questionable but expected to play. CB Jamar Taylor, who has missed three games, is questionable but also expects to play.

For the Patriots, only defensive lineman Dominique Easley is out and there are no players listed as doubtful.
