Chris Culliver back from PUP may not play on Sunday
Chris Culliver, activated from the PUP list returned to active practice this week. Culliver tore his ACL and MCL ligaments in his right knee last Thanksgiving Day. He told reporters that he was going to play this Sunday against the Chargers. However, the team may take their time bringing him along, and a decision hasn't been made. "Obviously we need more capable corners," said Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph. "If Chris is ready, he's going to play. We've only got really four healthy guys; you need probably five or six to play a season. Having a corner like Culliver come up who has played at a high level helps you. It allows us to have more flexibility."
The Dolphins defense, and especially the secondary need all the help they can get. The unit has also missed rookie Xavien Howard who has also been out with a knee injury, but who may return next week.
