Miami's skill position players didn't get much rest against the Rams in Week 6.

The Miami Dolphins defeated the St. Louis Rams, 17-14, in Week 6, evening their record at 3-3. Over at The Phinsider, Kevin Nogle has charted the number of snaps played by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and the rest of the Dolphins offense during the game. Tannehill, not surprisingly, was in on all 54 offensive plays, and running back Reggie Bush was in for 50 plays. Bush had trouble getting established on the ground and finished the day with 17 rushing yards, though he did catch five passes for 44 yards.

Wide receivers Davone Bess, Brian Hartline and Marlon Moore got the vast majority of the reps at wide receiver, and the Dolphins also leaned heavily on their starting five offensive linemen, as they have all season. Four of those five offensive linemen have not missed a snap in 2012.

The Dolphins are off in Week 7, and return to the field against the New York Jets on Oct. 28.
