DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — There’s no mystery this week. Joey Harrington will remain as the Miami Dolphins’ starting quarterback.
For now, anyway.
Dolphins coach Nick Saban said Monday that when his team opens practice for next Sunday’s visit to the New York Jets, Harrington will be the first-stringer. Daunte Culpepper will enter a rehab-type program designed to help restore some explosive movement in his surgically rebuilt right knee.
“We’ll evaluate it on a week-to-week basis,” Saban said. “This week, we’re going to plan to play like we did last week. … We’re going to work with Daunte, improve his movement, give him some reps in practice, get Joey ready to play in the game. Now, does that make him the starter? I guess that makes him the starter.”
