Dolphins' Timmons leaves team, not expected to play Sunday

Dolphins' Timmons leaves team, not expected to play Sunday

That first one is always hard to get, and then you can get on a streak. Needless to say, there will be a healthy level of excitement from new Chargers fans this weekend. The Dolphins take on the San Diego Chargers at 4:05 PM EST.

Timmons spent his first 10 seasons with the Steelers and is one of the best inside linebackers in team history. Fernando Ramirez handles the Chargers keys to victory while Derek Togerson looks at what the Dolphins have to do.

Defensive ends Cameron Wake and Andre Branch will be huge factors on Sunday if they can find a way to apply pressure on Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Of course, you cannot forget about running back Jay Ajayi who rushed for 1,272-yards and eight touchdowns last season. We'll focus on the kicker and punter and note that if this game is close, as expected, they could play a pivotal role.

Sunday's home opener marks the regular season return of the Chargers to Los Angeles for the first time since December 18, 1960. Tyrell Williams was the top Los Angeles receiver with his five catches for 54 yards. However, he got a full week of practice in ahead of Sunday's clash with the Chargers, so expect Ajayi to get a full workload. They just can't get out of their own way.

In talking about what problems he foresees in facing Jay Cutler of the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, Ingram didn't necessarily hold back. These teams have played the previous four seasons, with Miami holding a 3-1 lead. The Bolts were down 24-7 in the fourth quarter with Denver in complete control.

The Chargers made the rookie cornerback available to play when they signed him off the practice squad Saturday afternoon. So we were just getting constant updates from the people that were back there.

While Los Angeles did face one of the NFL's toughest defenses in the Denver Broncos, the team did not perform to the level it should have. But many of those seats were filled by opposing fans, including a almost full-house of Oakland Raiders fans in the second-to-last home game of the 2016 campaign.

Los Angeles is a city with many distractions and it's easy to get lost in the shuffle. Cutler was no bargain when up against the Chargers in his last years with Denver, but that was when coach Mike Shanahan was headed out the door at Mile High. They're playing a Miami team that will be revved up to play after having to unexpectedly sit out the first week of the season.
