Fiedler listed as questionable for Monday night game
DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami quarterback Jay Fiedler has been listed
as questionable for the Dolphins' Monday night game at San Diego
because of a sprained ligament in his left knee.
Fiedler did not take any snaps during the team's practice
Wednesday. Backup Brian Griese, signed by Miami in the offseason
after four years as Denver's starter, worked with the starting
offense and will get the call if Fiedler can't play.
Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt said he would not announce the
starter before Sunday, but added that he will make the decision
before then. He also said the uncertainty over who will start will
not affect the week's preparation for the Chargers.
"There are some things that one does maybe a little better than
the other, but we would not fall into that trap of wasting time
working on plays that either one couldn't work or run," Wannstedt
Fiedler, who wore a large brace on the knee during Wednesday's
workout, was able to participate in individual drills, Wannstedt
"There never really was much pain in it," Fiedler said. "It's
a mobility problem more than a pain problem."
