David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

Burnett had 10 tackles before leaving Sunday's game.

The Miami Dolphins lost a pair of players because of head injuries during Sunday's game against the New England Patriots, according to Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel.

Tight end Anthony Fasano and linebacker Kevin Burnett each left the game. Both were evaluated for possible concussions, Kelly wrote, and did not return to the game.

Each player had a strong game before exiting. Fasano had three catches for 31 yards, which gave him 41 catches on the season -- a career high.

Before Burnett left, the eighth-year linebacker had 10 tackles. In 16 starts this season, Burnett recorded 109 total tackles and 2 1/2 sacks.

With a 28-0 loss to the Patriots on Sunday, the Dolphins finished their season with a 7-9 record. It's the third time in four years that Miami has finished with a 7-9 record. It was the team's first season under head coach Joe Philbin, who was with the Green Bay Packers for the previous five seasons.
