Miami Dolphins left tackle Branden Albert did not practice this week because of a hamstring injury suffered in last week's loss to Jacksonville.
He is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buffalo. That's official.
Unofficially? He's not playing, folks.
Jason Fox is expected to start for the Dolphins at left tackle.
That was sort of expected. This is less expected:
After practicing on a limited basis on Wednesday and Thursday, tight end Dion Sims missed practice altogether on Friday and is also listed as doubtful.
He has apparently not cleared the NFL concussion protocol to play on Sunday.
The Dolphins are expecting TE Jordan Cameron (groin), running back Lamar Miller (ankle), and defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (back) to give it a go on Sunday even though they are listed as questionable. That assumes no setback in the next day and for Mitchell it also assumes he doesn't tighten up at any point.
Of no surprise is that Cameron Wake (hamstring), Ryan Tannehill (ankle) and Reshad Jones (hamstring) are probable and starting.
