Branden Albert status for Bills is ... not good

While the Miami Dolphins got multiple injured players back to practice today, including tight end Jordan Cameron, the status of left tackle Braden Albert has become a concern.

Albert, nursing a hamstring injury, missed practice for the second consecutive day. He pronounced himself day-to-day in the locker room, but it seems clear his status for Sunday's game against Buffalo is highly questionable.

And that's bad because the Bills have an excellent defensive front and the Dolphins really need all hands on deck.

The Dolphins would use either Jason Fox or Jeff Linkenbach at left tackle if Albert does not play on Sunday.

DT Earl Mitchell, who was not on the injury report on Wednesday, also missed the portion of practice that was open to the media on Thursday.

The Dolphins did get good news in that Jordan returned to practice and running back Lamar Miller, also not practicing Wednesday with a hamstring injury, dressed for practice today and seemed likely to work at least on a limited basis.
