DAVIE, Florida — Dolphins starting linebackers Jelani Jenkins and Koa Misi are listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at New England, which means Miami's defensive depth could be severely tested.

Jenkins (foot) and Misi (hamstring and knee) both missed practice this week, as did reserve linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hamstring). Miami might be forced to go with reserves Kelvin Sheppard and Jason Trusnik in the starting lineup.

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) was listed Friday as questionable but has said he will play. Cornerback Jamar Taylor (shoulder) and tight end Charles Clay (hamstring and knee) were also questionable.

Reserve guard Nate Garner (illness) was ruled out. Reserve defensive tackle Anthony Johnson (ankle) was placed on the reserve-injured list.
