Henne to start at QB for Dolphins vs. Raiders

The Dolphins announced that QB Chad Henne will start Sunday’s game against the Raiders.

Henne was demoted two weeks ago, but replacement starter Chad Pennington was injured less than a quarter into a game against the Titans and had to go on injured reserve with a shoulder injury. Henne then injured his knee in the same game and missed last week’s 16-0 loss to the Chicago Bears as third-stringer Tyler Thigpen started.

Henne was limited in practice this week and was listed as questionable on the Dolphins’ final injury report.

Dolphins center Joe Berger (knee) and LB Karlos Dansby (toe) are active. They were limited in practice this week and listed as questionable.

For the Raiders, TE Zach Miller (foot) was the only player listed as questionable on the final injury report Friday and will be active. Pro Bowl CB Nnamdi Asomugha returns after missing two games.
