Miami linebacker Kevin Burnett has fought injuries all season long, but he picked up three tackles Sunday against the Rams.

Miami Dolphins linebacker Kevin Burnett was medically cleared to play before Sunday's 17-14 win over the St. Louis Rams and picked up three tackles.

Burnett, who has fought several injuries over the course of the season, recorded two solo tackles and one assisted tackle in Sunday's win. He also had two pass deflections.

Burnett is second on the team with 36 total tackles, including a team-leading 10 assisted tackles. He has four pass deflections and a half of a sack in six games this season.

Dolphins cornerback Richard Marshall (back) was inactive for Sunday's game. He has missed two straight games.

Marshall, who typically plays in the nickel for Miami, has 17 tackles and one interception this season.

Miami's Daniel Thomas was also out for Sunday's game. The 24-year-old running back suffered a concussion in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Thomas has 113 rushing yards on 36 carries in four games this season. He is averaging 3.1 yards per carry and 28.3 yards per game. With Thomas out, Reggie Bush played 50 of 54 offensive snaps Sunday.

Miami is on a bye this week. The Dolphins travel to play the New York Jets on Oct. 28.
