Branden Albert not playing against the New York Jets

LONDON -- The Miami Dolphins are shutting down Branden Albert until after the bye week.

That means Miami's starting left tackle will not play against the New York Jets on Sunday, marking the second straight game Albert misses.

Albert, nursing a hamstring injury, will be replaced on the line by Jason Fox who played left tackle last week against Buffalo in his absence.

"He was solid," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said of how Fox played last week against the Bills. "I thought he did a good job."

The Dolphins are obviously being cautious with their starting left tackle. Although he has practiced on a limited basis earlier this week and did so again during a walk-thru practice here Friday, the team is concerned exposing Albert to game action could cause a setback that would require multiple weeks for him to recover from.

Albert is officially listed as doubtful for the game. Tight end Dion Sims (concussion) is listed as out officially so the Miami offense will be without two starters.

Tight end Jordan Cameron (groin) and running back Jonas Gray (calf) are listed as questionable but they are expected to play.
