  • 0:45 | NFL         Dolphins Suspend LB Lawrence Timmons Indefinitely After Going AWOL

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Dolphins SLB Lawrence Timmons has left the team ahead of Week 2 against the Chargers. That forced the Dolphins to call Jay Cutler out of retirement to play quarterback.

The Dolphins have had plenty of time to get acclimated to the West Coast: They've spent a full week in Oxnard, California, after leaving South Florida early with their families to avoid the hurricane.

Trailing 24-7 at one point, Los Angeles got to within a potential game-tying field goal with:05 remaining against Denver.

Preparation for Sunday's home game against Chicago began in earnest Wednesday with just the third full practice the Bucs have had since the end of the preseason August 31.

Whether or not Glendale High alumnus Michael Davis will see action Sunday afternoon when the Los Angeles Chargers open the home portion of their schedule against the Miami Dolphins is anyone's guess.

BIG PARTY: The Chargers are planning numerous festivities around their opener, including the presentation of LaDainian Tomlinson's ring from the Pro Football Hall of Fame at halftime.

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who has pledged $1 million to the rebuilding efforts for the region, flew coaches, players and their families to Los Angeles on a team charter on Friday. He will be focal point of the game plan and someone Miami's defense must account for whenever he's on the field. His play on a team that's trying to get back to the playoffs will be one of the most fascinating developments in the league this season. I've got all the good pass rushers.

Tamar said he wants to create a similar experience for Chargers fans at StubHub. Meanwhile, as long as Miami doesn't ask Cutler to do too much, they might be fine.

The Chargers also are adding flag runners for pregame player introductions and purchased the cannon from longtime fan Ron Dixon for game-day festivities, part of the experience at games in San Diego since 1961.

Finally, there is quarterback Jay Cutler who has all these toys to play with and is reunited with head coach Adam Gase, whom Cutler had one of his best seasons under when Gase was the offensive coordinator for the Chicago Bears. "Some of those guys were surprised".
