Dolphins’ Jabar Gaffney inactive, Kevin Burnett will play

The Miami Dolphins just announced the following players will be inactive for today’s game against the Rams:

Jabar Gaffney, Michael Egnew, Rishard Matthews, Pat Devlin, Daniel Thomas, Richard Marshall, and Will Yeatman

Gaffney is an interesting inactive because he seemed confident this week that he’d be ready to play for the Dolphins on Sunday.  However, the coaches must feel that he would benefit from having the next 2 weeks to fully learn the offense.  The Dolphins have a bye next week, so I would be shocked if Gaffney wasn’t active in 2 weeks.

Kevin Burnett’s name is not on the inactive list, meaning he’s healthy enough to play today.  Burnett was listed as questionable on the injury report, so it’s good news that he’s ready to go today.  Richard Marshall and Daniel Thomas were both expected to miss this game, so their names being on the list comes as no surprise.
