Dolphins Not Likely to Have WR Marshall Sunday in Oakland

It appears that the Fins will not have wide receiver Brandon Marshall for their Sunday matchup in Oakland, as he didn’t practice again Friday due to a hamstring injury.

Reports say that it’s unlikely he’ll travel with the team to Oakland for Sunday’s game. Marshall, the team leader in receptions (58) and yards (693), hasn’t practiced all week because of the injury sustained last week against Chicago.

In another decision critical to the offense, coach Tony Sparano still hasn’t chosen a starter at quarterback. Chad Henne is recovering from a knee injury sustained two weeks ago against Tennessee. Tyler Thigpen, the third-team quarterback two weeks ago, started in last week’s 16-0 loss to Chicago and had an uninspiring performance that included two interceptions.

Miami made a roster move Friday, signing defensive lineman Chris Baker and waiving DL Clifton Geathers.
