The Splash Zone 8/18/16: Laremy Tunsil Could Start Against The Cowboys

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.

Tunsil saw the most snaps of any Dolphin player last week and has been seeing plenty of time with the first team offense this week. All signs indicate that Tunsil could be the starter on Friday. As I have been saying, Tunsil will be the Dolphins starting left guard after the preseason.

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