Starters and inactives of Dolphins versus Bills

Today is about the lineup, not so much the inactives. And to that end consider:

Michael Thomas is starting at safety today for the injured Reshad Jones.

Running back Jay Ajayi is starting today, ahead of Arian Foster. Yes, Ajayi has earned that job back.

Andre Branch is starting today ahead of Mario Williams. Yes, Williams has apparently lost his job after not starting last week.

Dominque Jones is starting at tight end for the injured pair of Jordan Cameron and Dion Sims. Jones is very familiar with Adam Gase's offense and the coach trusts him.

Tony Lippett is starting today for injured Xavien Howard. Lippett was managing a hamstring injury this week.

The inactives for Miami are:

Howard, Bene' Benwikere, Julius Warmsley, Nick Williams, Terrence Fede, Sims and Jordan.

All of Miami's running backs are active. All of Miami's linebackers are active.

For the Bills ... running back LeSean McCoy is active.
