The Miami Dolphins will face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5 without the services of cornerback Richard Marshall, who has been ruled out for the game with a back injury. The Friday injury report showed Marshall missed his third straight day of practice and will not play on Sunday. Marshall is the only player out for Miami, and the Dolphins do not have anyone listed as questionable or doubtful. Ryan Tannehill is listed with an injury to the thumb on his throwing hand, but he is expected to play.

The Miami Dolphins face the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 5, and the Bengals' injury report on Wednesday has some insight into how the Dolphins might gameplan their attack. Cincinnati looks to be thin in the secondary, possibly opening some opportunities for Ryan Tannehill.
Cincinnati's starting right and left corner are both on the injury report, with Leon Hall and Nate Clements limited in practice. Backups at corner Jason Allen and Dre Kirkpatrick are also listed, with Allen missing practice entirely and Kirkpatrick limited. Elsewhere on defense, starting defensive end Carlos Dunlap was limited in practice.
On the offensive side of the ball is tackle Andrew Whitworth, among others. A complete injury list is below.
