NFL: Preaseason-Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins appeared to be getting healthy on the offensive line this week. That was, until the team started their pre-gram preparations ahead of their Tennessee Titans Week 5 contest. Left tackle Branden Albert was already not playing in the game, but now backup left tackle and starting left guard Laremy Tunsil will also be out of the game.

The team has not stated what sort of injury Tunsil sustained, but he has been replaced in the starting lineup by Dallas Thomas. Billy Turner will start at left tackle. The injury to Tunsil was confirmed to have happened today.

The team also announced running back Jay Ajayi will be starting in place of Arian Foster, cornerback Tony Lippett will start in place of Xavien Howard, linebacker Neville Hewitt will start for Jelani Jenkins, linebacker Donald Butler will start for Koa Misi, and tight end Dion Sims will start for Jordan Cameron.
