Dolphins LB Lawrence Timmons AWOL, not expected to play against Chargers

  • Miami Dolphins hold practice in Oxnard due to Hurricane Irma

The Chargers' move north has been met with much skepticism, to say the least. Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh had career-high 72 tackles last season.

Former Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons disappeared from the Miami Dolphins on Saturday, according to FOX Sports. Fernando Ramirez handles the Chargers keys to victory while Derek Togerson looks at what the Dolphins have to do. Timmons was not at the team hotel, but the team found out where he was on Sunday.

The Chargers lost a bunch of close games a year ago, and while they lost another one to start this season, a 24-21 decision at Denver on Monday night, they battled back to almost force overtime and pushed the spread as three-point dogs. We'll focus on the kicker and punter and note that if this game is close, as expected, they could play a pivotal role.

That being said, they are going up against another rough and physical defensive-line this weekend.

The Chargers understand it will take some time to grow the fan base in Los Angeles, and winning will help sell the product on the field.

It's hard to know how Miami will respond to missing their first scheduled contest and spending an unscheduled week in California. Miami will not only be fresh, but it will offer a balanced offensive attack led by new quarterback Jay Cutler and bruising running back Jay Ajayi. He played in 14 games that campaign as he's still looking to participate in a full 16-game season. The Bolts were down 24-7 in the fourth quarter with Denver in complete control. Chargers - WR Mike Williams (back), CB Jason Verrett (knee) and S Reyshawn Jenkins (concussion) have all been ruled out. So we were just getting constant updates from the people that were back there.

The Chargers possess a familiar feeling, one that haunted them through a five-win season previous year. The most famous game in this series is the 1982 playoff game, won by San Diego, 41-38, in overtime. And with a win in San Diego a year ago, Miami is 3-1 both straight up and against the spread over that span. Jay Cutler has proven throughout training camp and preseason that he is not afraid to challenge vertically down the field and targeted Parker early and often. Defensively, Miami was poor last season.
