Time is now for Ryan Tannehill to be Dolphins' difference maker

The Dolphins don't want to paint themselves into a 1-3 corner, therefore they need QB Ryan Tannehill to make the next step in his progression.

Richard Sherman on draft picks shaking Roger Goodell's hand: "At that point, they think the commissioner cares about them and is happy for them. And by the time they're done with their first or second year, they understand what his job really is."

Russell Wilson (knee) was a full practice participant again today. Same with rookie right guard Germain Ifedi (ankle). The following players were limited: WR Tyler Lockett (knee), DT Jarran Reed (hip), TE Nick Vannett (ankle) and LB Mike Morgan (hip). Jimmy Graham (knee/back) did not practice.

Dolphins OT Branden Albert is inactive tonight, which means first-round pick Laremy Tunsil now moves from starting LG to starting LT.

The good news is Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker are active and starting. The bad news is the Dolphins had to get creative on the offensive line. LG starts at LT (Branden Albert won't play). Backup RG starts at LG. Third stringer starts at center.

Also inactive for the Bengals: Jeff Driskel, Cody Core, KeiVarae Russell, Christian Westerman, DeShawn Williams.

The possibility of not having starting right tackle Joe Reitz (back) and right guard Denzelle Good (back) means the Colts could have three rookies starting on offensive line against Jacksonville. Rookies Austin Blythe and Joe Haeg will start if Reitz and Good both miss the game. They will join center Ryan Kelly as the rookies on an offensive line that has given up nine sacks through the first three games. Coach Chuck Pagano has already ruled out Jon Harrison after he had emergency appendectomy.

Tyler Eifert and Dre Kirkpatrick are inactive. Vontaze Burfict is active vs. the Dolphins.

As running back LeGarrette Blount explained, "life is good" for him and the Patriots, even as injured QBs Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett are limited in practice.

Todd Haley said Steelers at times could work offense away from Marcus Peters, who "tracks (the ball) like a receiver."

I've confirmed the Bengals' plan for tonight has not changed. LB Vontaze Burfict and LB Vinny Rey will each have radio transmitters in their helmets, which means they can't be on the field together. Burfict will play primarily on early downs. Burfict hasn't played in a game since January and told me he asked the coaches if he could wait a week before wearing the radio because he's worried about catching his breath while trying to make a play call. The coaches apparently said no.

Beautiful night in Cincinnati. There may be a few scattered showers during the game, but no wind and a kick off temperature around 60 degrees.

The Broncos receivers like what they've seen from quarterback Trevor Siemian this week as he is coming off a 312-yard, four-touchdown day last Sunday in the win over the Bengals. Here's what Emmanuel Sanders had to say after today's practice: "Tell you what, today was one of the best practices I've seen him have, you know, in terms of the ball when it was coming how it was spinning, how accurate he was and the height of the ball. He's getting better and better … Maybe he's sitting at home watching SportsCenter, seeing his name and his jersey sales going up. And that's all right.''
