Dolphins scratch a few starters


Joey Porter isn't the only Miami Dolphins starter who will watch Sunday's game in his civvies.

The Dolphins have deactivated tight end Anthony Fasano, left guard Justin Smiley and defensive tackle Paul Soliai because of injuries.

Also deactivated are quarterback Tyler Thigpen, running back Kory Sheets, tackle Andrew Gardner and linebacker Erik Walden.

Not on the list is rookie receiver Patrick Turner, who will make his NFL debut.
