John Jerry to start Sunday versus Pittsburgh

Dolphins guard John Jerry has passed the NFL's baseline concussion testing protocol and is expected to start at his usual right guard spot against the Steelers Sunday.

Jerry practiced in full during Friday's practice and is listed as probable.

The news is not quite so good for rookie cornerback Jamar Taylor, who is listed as out with a hamstring injury that has forced him to miss last week's game. This will mark the seventh game Taylor misses due to injury this season.

Cornerback Dimitri Patterson (groin) and running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) are questionable. They both practiced on a limited basis on Frday.

For the Steelers, they had already said defensive end Brett Keisel would miss the game due a foot injury.

Left tackle Kelvin Beachum is listed as doubtful due to a knee injury. He was limited in practice on Friday. DT Steve McLendon (ankle) is listed as questionable and he was also limited in practice on Friday.

OLB LaMarr Woodley, who has missed the past couple of games for Pittsburgh with a calf injury, has practiced full the past two days and is listed as probable.


Live Miami Dolphins chat at 1 p.m.

It's been a while since I've spoken with so many of you. It's been a while since many of you have spoken at me.

Yeah, kidding.

In truth the change to the gameday live blog every Sunday has disconnected us somewhat so I figure today would be a good day to get on here in live chat fashion and exchange ideas.

Come by at 1 p.m. and I'll meet you in the comments section for the chat. As always, no Dolphins subject is taboo.

If you cannot be here at 1 p.m. leave your questiions, comments or kudos early and I'll address them soon as I can.

See you at 1 p.m.

[Update: John Jerry (concussion), Dimitri Patterson (groin) and Daniel Thomas (ankle) practiced at least on a limited basis in practice today.]
