DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins cornerback Vontae Davis has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Cleveland because of a hamstring injury.

The game will be the first Davis has missed in his three NFL seasons.

He'll be replaced by Nolan Carroll, who will make his second career start.

Two other players in the secondary, safety Chris Clemons and nickel back Will Allen, were listed as questionable with hamstring injuries. Both were limited in practice Friday.

Ruled out was defensive end Tony McDaniel, who has been sidelined since he broke his right hand in the season opener.
