The Splash Zone 10/1/16: Tony Lippett To Remain Starting Cornerback

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

Adam Gase reported yesterday that Tony Lippett will remain a starter on defense. The Dolphins benched former starter Byron Maxwell before Thursday nights game and did not play a single snap. The Dolphins defense played fairly well though, bent but did not break. A.J. Green manhandled Lippett though. Things aren't looking great for Maxwell, who the Dolphins traded for during the offseason.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
