Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill was surprisingly listed on Miami’s first injury report of the week.
Tannehill, who has been sacked 10 times in two games, was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday’s practice because of an injury to his throwing shoulder. No other information was available.
He spoke to reporters before the injury report was released and there were no visible signs of an injury.
Tannehill threw for 319 yards and compiled a 107.4 passer rating in Sunday’s win at Indianapolis.
If Tannehill were to miss any time, backup Matt Moore is more than capable of filling in. He threw for 2,497 yards as Miami’s starter in 2011.
Defensive tackle Paul Soliai missed practice again, and teammates are preparing to go without him against Atlanta on Sunday. Safety Chris Clemons, who has a hamstring injury, also didn’t practice.
Cornerbacks Dimitri Patterson (groin), Will Davis (toe) and Jamar Taylor (hernia) were all limited after missing last week’s game.
Linebacker Koa Misi (knee), safety Jimmy Wilson (groin) and third-string quarterback Pat Devlin (ankle) also were limited.
Jerry Bowl: For right guard John Jerry, there will be more at stake Sunday against Atlanta than a potential 3-0 start for the Dolphins. Family bragging rights will be on the line, too.
Jerry’s brother, Peria Jerry, is a defensive tackle for the Falcons. They have never faced each other in a regular-season game.
“My mom will be there, my brother will be there, my sister will be there,” said John, 27. “I already gave them the heads-up that they better be on my side. I bought the tickets.”
Peria, who is two years older than John, was a first-round draft choice in 2009 but is now a second-string player.
In high school in Batesville, Miss., the Jerrys played on the same side of the ball — John was a defensive lineman and Peria a linebacker. They won a state title together when John was a sophomore, and then John won another as a senior.
“So I still got one more ring than him,” John said.
John Jerry’s weight inflated: Jerry, who weighs 335 pounds, has been criticized at times for his weight. The Dolphins didn’t do him any favors with this typo: He is listed in the team media guide as weighing 3,435 pounds.
Run-blocking woes: After running for just 20 yards in the season opener against Cleveland, Miami bounced back by rushing for 101 yards and two touchdowns against Indianapolis.
Still, the Dolphins rank third-to-last in the NFL in run blocking, according to Pro Football Focus’ advanced statistics.
Left tackle Jonathan Martin grades out as the league’s No. 42 tackle out of 67, and he is 53rd in run blocking. Right tackle Tyson Clabo is No. 54 overall and No. 57 in run blocking. Mike Pouncey is tied for 19th out of 34 centers in run blocking.
Jerry is No. 51 out of 68 guards overall. Left guard Richie Incognito is off to a good start, according to Pro Football Focus, grading at No. 11 overall.
Jerry, who missed much of the preseason, said the line is “still jelling.”
