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 said.

Fiedler, who wore a large brace on the knee during Wednesday's workout, was able to participate in individual drills, Wannstedt said.

"There never really was much pain in it," Fiedler said. "It's a mobility problem more than a pain problem."
