DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins say rookie guard Laremy Tunsil was unable to play Sunday because he hurt his ankle in the shower.

Tunsil was inactive for the Dolphins' 30-17 loss to Tennessee. On Monday, coach Adam Gase said Tunsil slipped in the shower at the team hotel several hours before kickoff.

It's uncertain how long Tunsil will be sidelined, but he's not on crutches and is able to walk, Gase said.

Tunsil became the biggest story of the NFL draft this year when a bizarre video was posted on his Twitter account showing him smoking from a gas mask connected to a bong. He had been projected as a possible No. 1 overall pick and instead fell to Miami with the 13th choice.
