Dolphins’ Pennington sidelined by shoulder injury

Chad Pennington’s run as the Dolphins’ starting QB lasted all of two plays Sunday.

Pennington injured his troublesome right shoulder on the team’s first series against the Titans, and he was replaced by former starter Chad Henne.

The Dolphins announced that Pennington is questionable to return.

Pennington was hit hard by Justin Babin while attempting a pass on Miami’s first play from scrimmage. The QB stayed in for one more play — a 19-yard completion to Brian Hartline — then left the field and headed to the locker room.

So, while the Dolphins attempted to replace Henne this week, they’re right back where they started.

Pennington has had three surgeries on his throwing shoulder, according to The Associated Press. A shoulder injury ended his 2009 season after three games.
