Brock Osweiler will start at QB for Dolphins on short week

Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Monday that Brock Osweiler will start at quarterback Thursday at Houston, and Ryan Tannehill will miss his third game. Tannehill is dealing with a shoulder injury that has prevented him from throwing.

Gase said Tannehill is in a "good spot" and the Dolphins (4-3) plan for him to throw this week; he added that there's no guarantee it would be a real football, and it could be a Nerf football.
