Laremy Tunsil Cleared Concussion Protocol and is Listed as Questionable … But Expect Him to Play

NFL News and Rumors

In addition to battling through back-to-back losses, the Miami Dolphins have been dealing with the relentlessness of the injury bug.

But finally, against all odds, some good news has come via the injury front:

Not only has left tackle Laremy Tunsil cleared concussion protocol, he was a full participant in practice on Friday and the general feeling is that he will play against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Pro Football Focus grades Tunsil as the 26th best offensive tackle among the 73 qualifiers at the position. Tunsil was a first-round pick in 2016 and was selected four spots after the Bears chose Leonard Floyd, a player who will likely line up opposite of Tunsil often on Sunday.

The Dolphins were already down a pair of starters on the offensive line with center Daniel Kilgore (triceps) and left guard Josh Sitton (shoulder) already out for the season on injured reserve. Being without their entire left side of the offensive line would have made for a near impossible task for a group facing the Bears’ top-flight pass-rush. Especially if quarterback Ryan Tannehill can’t play because of a shoulder injury.

Good for the Dolphins, it sounds like they would take any good news they can get from anywhere.
