Dolphins CB Richard Marshall out against Bengals

Nolan Carroll is starting at cornerback in place of the injured

Richard Marshall for the Miami Dolphins’ game against the

Cincinnati Bengals.

Marshall missed practice all week with a bad back, forcing the

Dolphins to scramble their secondary for a game against one of the

NFL’s top pass-and-catch tandems of Andy Dalton and A.J. Green.

The Bengals had both of their cornerbacks active Sunday. Nate

Clements (calf) and Leon Hall (hamstring) missed a win over

Jacksonville last week. Clements returned but started at safety for

the second time this season, with Terence Newman taking over at

cornerback opposite Hall.

Defensive end Carlos Dunlap was active for the Bengals but

wasn’t in the starting line rotation. Dunlap missed the first two

games of the season with a sprained knee.
