Hope the Oline can hold up this Thurs.
Miami Dolphins starting free safety Chris Clemons sat out Tuesday’s practice nursing the strained hamstring he suffered in last Sunday’s 29-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.
Rookie safety Reshad Jones, who record two tackles, one sack, one interception and broke up two passes as Clemons’ replacement, was paired with Yeremiah Bell in the back end of the Dolphins’ starting defense during Tuesday’s practice.
Center Joe Berger, who suffered a knee injury against the Titans, also sat out Tuesday’s session.
Cory Procter, a career reserve in his sixth year, is filling in as Berger’s replacement. If Berger isn’t able to play against the Bears Procter would start his 14th game in the NFL, and first with the Dolphins.
Starting left tackle Jake Long, who is nursing a left shoulder injury, practiced with the team, as did starting right tackle Vernon Carey, who is nursing a knee injury. However, it’s uncertain at this time if their participation was limited.
