Dolphins without Laremy Tunsil vs. Titans after pregame injury
The Miami Dolphins unexpectedly are without their first-round draft pick Laremy Tunsil against the Tennessee Titans after a pregame injury.
The 13th pick overall out of Mississippi hurt himself hours before kickoff preparing for the game, a team spokesman said. Tunsil had not been on the injury report this past week, and the nature of the left guard's injury wasn't immediately disclosed.
Also inactive was left tackle Branden Albert (virus), leaving Miami without both starters on that side. Center Mike Pouncey was active after missing the first four games recovering from hip surgery.
Tom Brady is back from his four-game suspension, so the most important New England Patriot is on the field. The quarterback also has some of his key teammates available against Cleveland as well.
Running back LeGarrette Blount was questionable with a hip problem but is active for Sunday's game. Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman has been on the injury report with a hurt foot but also is active. New England deactivated one of Blount's backups, Brandon Bolden.
The Minnesota Vikings will be without wide receiver Stefon Diggs against Houston because of a groin injury that had him listed as doubtful. He leads the Vikings with 25 receptions and 372 yards. That leaves the Vikings without their starting quarterback, running back, left tackle, right tackle and top wide receiver with injuries suffered over the past six weeks. Tight end Rhett Ellison, a key backup, is also inactive with a knee injury.
For the Texans, starting cornerback Kareem Jackson is inactive with a hamstring injury. He'll be replaced by Kevin Johnson in the lineup.
