Dolphins list 22 injured players for transatlantic trip


Most teams would be peeved at a Week 5 bye week. Having to muddle through some long weeks in December are tough when you haven't had a full week's break in more than two months.

Considering the current state of the Miami Dolphins' roster, however, the early respite may be coming at the perfect time.

The team has an incredible 22 players on its injury report in only the fourth week of the season, while three players stayed behind for the 'Phins trip to London to face the Oakland Raiders at Wembley Stadium.

Two players -- defensive tackle Randy Starks and linebacker Chris McCain -- joined running back Knowshon Moreno as those not making the trip, with Starks battling a back problem and McCain missing the game after dealing with the death of his grandfather.
