Dolphins’ Tunsil Expects To Play Sunday Sfter Shower Mishap

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins rookie guard Laremy Tunsil says he expects to play Sunday after missing last week’s game when he hurt himself coming out of the shower.

Tunsil said he sprained his right ankle hours before the start of Sunday’s 30-17 loss to Tennessee.

With Tunsil and left tackle Branden Albert sidelined, the Dolphins (1-4) gave up six sacks against the Titans and totaled eight first downs.

When asked if he apologized to his teammates, Tunsil said, “They knew it was a freak accident. Things happen. You can’t do much about it.”

Tunsil returned to practice Wednesday, and he and Albert both expect to play Sunday against Pittsburgh.
