Jordan Cameron not expected to play vs. Pittsburgh, future uncertain

Tight end Jordan Cameron will not be playing Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers as he continues to try to recover from a concussion he suffered Sept. 25 against Cleveland. It gets worse ...

There is concern within the Dolphins that the player could be out an extended period as he mulls his NFL future.

Cameron has missed two games and is about to miss his third in a row. He did not practice Wednesday as the Dolphins began preparations for Sunday's game at Hard Rock Stadium.

Cameron's situation is delicate because the most recent concussion is his fourth in four years. And so both the player and the team are being cautious about the recovery. Cameron is said to be quite concerned about his longterm health.

The Dolphins have relied on Dion Sims as their starter with Marqueis Gray and recently signed Dominique Jones getting snaps as well. Jones, signed Oct. 3, caught two passes for four yards against Tennessee last Sunday.

On the brighter side of the Dolphins injury situation, guard Laremy Tunsil and tackle Branden Albert both practiced on Wednesday. Albert is a definite to play against the Steelers.

The Dolphins will continue to monitor Tunsil's progress during the practice week to make sure his ankle, which he injured slipping and falling in the shower last Sunday, does not swell up again after a practice.
