DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami right tackle Jonathan Martin is doubtful for the Dolphins’ game Thursday night against Cincinnati because of illness, signaling a likely alter in the offensive line for the second consecutive week.
Martin would be replaced by Tyson Clabo, who was benched a week ago after the Dolphins traded for tackle Bryant McKinnie. Pass protection has been a problem all season for Miami, & Ryan Tannehill has been sacked an NFL-high 32 times.
Martin hasn’t practiced this week. Backup tight end Dion Sims moreover is doubtful because of a toe injury.
