News: Trusnik tallied 10 tackles (five solo) during Sunday's loss to the Bills. Impact: Trusnik is the Dolphins' new starting weak-side linebacker, following Dannell Ellerbe (hip) being ruled out for the season. However, with Koa Misi (ankle) also sidelined Sunday, both Trusnik and teammate Jelani Jenkins were able to register double-digit tackles. Trusnik's expanded role bodes well for his IDP stock moving forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Trusnik is listed as the Dolphins' starting OLB on the team's depth chart, according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. Impact: This is not exactly breaking news after all of the injuries the Dolphins suffered to their linebacker corps Sunday. Trusnik was the favorite to start somewhere and it looks like that will be at OLB.(RotoWire, )

News: Trusnik will be in the mix to replace Dannell Ellerbe (hip), according to the Miami Herald. Impact: The Dolphins are a mess at linebacker right now. Ellerbe is out for the season with a hip injury, Koa Misi is expected to miss a few games due to an injured ankle, and Phillip Wheeler was inactive Sunday due to a thumb concern. Even if Trusnik doesn't start for Ellerbe, he'll likely find himself with a significant snap count anyway.(RotoWire, )

News: Trusnik will step in to start at strong-side linebacker in place of the injured Philip Wheeler (thumb) for the Dolphins' Week 1 game against the Patriots, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports. Impact: Though Trusnik is technically listed as the top backup to Koa Misi in the middle, he's viewed as the team's fourth-best linebacker overall, and will therefore get the start over Wheeler's primary understudies on the outside. Wheeler is still wearing a cast on his hand and was generally a disappointment when he played last season, so with an impressive showing Sunday, Trusnik could very well end up hanging on to the starting gig.(RotoWire, )
