Marshall to miss third game with back injury

Richard Marshall, the Dolphins cornerback who has missed the last two games with a back injury, will also miss Sunday's game at the New York Jets as well, according to a source.

That should really come as no surprise. Marshall hasn't practiced since Sept. 28 and hasn't played since Sept. 30 against Arizona. He missed the games against Cincinnati and St. Louis without even practicing the weeks leading to those contests.

He didn't practice last week during the bye. And he missed practice again today, to go with his missing practice on Monday and Wednesday.

He's not available and will miss his third game of the season.

Nolan Carroll, who has started the past two games for Marshall, will do so again Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

On another note, defensive tackle Randy Starks is back at practice today. He missed practice Wednesday for personal non-football reasons.
