 DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -Dolphins linebacker Zach Thomas will miss Sunday's game against the Giants in London because of whiplash from a car accident.
Tests showed no other symptoms besides the whiplash, Miami coach Cam Cameron said Thursday, but doctors recommended Thomas rest and not travel. He was not at practice.
``Obviously, that's unfortunate,'' Cameron said. ``But there are some guys that are going to step up.''
The 0-7 Dolphins play New York in Wembley Stadium on Sunday in the NFL's first regular-season game outside North America. Thomas was tested for the injury Wednesday in Pittsburgh.
The middle linebacker and his wife were driving after the Dolphins' 49-28 loss to the New England Patriots last weekend when their vehicle was hit on Florida's Turnpike. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, they were rear-ended in stop-and-go traffic by a driver wearing Patriots attire. Thomas was wearing a seat belt.
``You can't replace Zach, that's for sure,'' defensive end Matt Roth said. ``You've just got to make due without him.''
Thomas' agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Thomas had a sore neck and was tested for both possible concussion symptoms and whiplash. He said Thomas' received a ``very good report.''
``This is not a long-term problem, by any stretch,'' Rosenhaus said.
Thomas - a 12-year league veteran who has made seven Pro Bowl appearances - has missed two consecutive games this season because of a concussion. He is among a group of key Dolphins - including quarterback Trent Green, safety Yeremiah Bell and running back Ronnie Brown - who have been injured this season.
``We've just got to go out there and play and try to do our job the best way we know how,'' linebacker Joey Porter said. ``It's not like it's the first time it happened this year.''
