Kirkpatrick said he had a calf strain but he's listed with a hamstring issue. Mike Nugent (shoulder) participated fully. Important to note that this was a walkthrough today.

Dolphins TE Cameron (concussion) out Thursday

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Monday that tight end Jordan Cameron has a concussion and won't play Thursday, while running back Arian Foster, who has a groin injury, likely is out as well.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

QB Trevor Siemian and the Broncos beat the Bengals blitz scheme twice on Sunday with outside double-moves for touchdowns. The first one over the top to Emmanuel Sanders came on the out and up with the second score to Demaryius Thomas on the stutter and go. Two different routes/stems, but the same exact concept --seven-man protection with front side dig routes (square-ins).That gave the Broncos and Siemian time for the double-moves to develop with the receivers winning one-on-one matchups.
