Dolphins defense dinged up even more


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Miami Dolphins' tattered defense has gotten a little more raggedy against the New England Patriots in Gillette Stadium.

Two Dolphins who replaced other injured players were hurt in the first quarter.

Rookie cornerback Vontae Davis -- in for Will Allen -- is out of the game with a right quadriceps injury suffered while denying Randy Moss a reception in the end zone.

Davis was replaced by Jason Allen. Davis' return has been announced in the press box as questionable. He has been riding a stationary bike on the sideline.

Nose tackle Paul Soliai -- in for Jason Ferguson -- has missed snaps because of an apparent leg injury. There has been no update provided on Soliai. Randy Starks has been lining up over Patriots center Dan Koppen with Soliai out.
