Schobel, Reed miss Friday practice, questionable

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Bills starting receiver Josh Reed and
defensive end Aaron Schobel both missed practice on Friday and are
questionable for Buffalo's game in Miami on Sunday.

Reed missed his first practice of the week after developing
stiffness in his back. Schobel missed Thursday's practice because
of a groin/thigh injury, but was sent home on Friday after becoming
ill.

Backup tight end/offensive lineman Matt Murphy has been ruled
out of the game against the Dolphins because of a calf injury,
further depleting the Bills depth at that position after they
placed rookie tight end Derek Schouman on injured reserve Thursday.
Robert Royal, Michael Gaines and Ryan Neufeld are the other tight
ends on the roster.

Quarterback Trent Edwards practiced all week on a limited basis,
and is also questionable. Edwards is nursing an injured right wrist
that he hurt in Buffalo's win over the New York Jets two weeks ago.

Linebacker John DiGiorgio is questionable after being limited in
practice the past two days because of a head injury.
