The Miami Dolphins will be without tight end Jordan Cameron and center Anthony Steen on Thursday when the team opens Week 4 of the NFL season against the Cincinnati Bengals:

The Dolphins will likely use Dion Sims as the primary tight end with Cameron out. In four years in the NFL, Sims has played in 45 games, with 11 starts, catching 53 passes for 510 yards and four touchdowns. He caught four passes on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, picking up 46 yards for the Dolphins.
Steen has been the starting center for the Dolphins this season, replacing Mike Pouncey who has been sidelined since the preseason with a hip fracture. Head coach Adam Gase, who spoke with the media on Monday, would not indicate if Pouncey will be ready to play against the Bengals. Pouncey has yet to return to full practicing since the injury.
The Dolphins and Bengals kickoff at 8:25pm ET on Thursday from Cincinnati’s Paul Brown Stadium.
