The injury situation looked dreadful for the Dolphins on Sunday, but they're in decent shape with two big exceptions. No. 3 QB Tyler Thigpen will get the start since Pennington and Henne are injured. While he did start some games for the Chiefs in 2008, that was a couple years ago. And LT Jake Long has a shoulder injury but could play through it. Their backup plan isn't any good according to the Phinsider, but the Dolphins do play a lot of max protection.
The Dolphins are favored by 1.5 which is a sign the odds makers don't know what to think of this game.
