The Dolphins offensive line is heavily injured heading into their match up with the 49ers

The Miami Dolphins head into their match up with the San Francisco 49ers with a very beat up offensive line including their first round pick Laremy Tunsil. Tunsil has been dealing with a shoulder injury that he sustained in the game vs. The Rams and was officially listed as questionable all week but Dolphins head coach Adam Gase claimed it was a game day decision.

Inactives were announced and three of the starting offensive linemen for the Dolphins are listed as out. Tackle Branden Albert sat out with a wrist injury all week along with center Mike Pouncey who has a chronic hip injury. Tunsil was limited in practice but was listed as out when the official list was released.

Other inactives for the Dolphins include cornerbacks Jordan Lucas and Xavien Howard as well as tight end Thomas Duarte and defensive tackle Leon Orr. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry who was in a red non-contact jersey all week will play along with Kenny Stills who was limited in practice all week with a calf injury. On the defensive side of the ball Ndamukong Suh and Mario Williams were limited in practice but but are listed as active for the game.

This could be a weak spot for San Francisco to exploit but the 49ers defense is also dealing with the injury bug. Aaron Lynch and Quinton Dial were officially ruled out. Eli Harold will start in place of Lynch and Tony Jerod-Eddie will start for the injured Dial.
