The St. Louis Rams just announced the Dolphins inactives. Sad, but true. Theinactives are:
Michael Egnew, Jabar Gaffney, Pat Devlin, Richard Marshall, Daniel Thomas, and Rishard Matthews.
That means linebacker Kevin Burnett, who appeared on the injury report Friday with an ankle injury, is active and apparently starting.
I know what you're about to say: Gaffney is a disappointment. Well, not yet. Obviously he still is not quite familiar enough with the offense to be viable on game day. But it has only been two weeks since he arrived.
He gets a bye week this week to learn the offense better. I suppose/expect he'll be in the playbook catching up rather than vacationing in the Bahamas with teammates. If he doesn't know the offense when the team comes back Oct. 28, then I have to question his learning prowess.
As you know, the Dolphins will induct Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor into their Honor Roll today. The new name tags are in the west end of the stadium.
There will be a live blog. It happens in the comments section below. I will join you at kickoff.
