DAVIE, Fla. -- Quarterback Brian Griese will start for the second consecutive week for the Miami Dolphins when they play Indianapolis on Sunday.

Griese made his season debut against San Diego on Monday night, throwing for 192 yards and three touchdowns in Miami's 26-10 win.

"Right now he gives us the best chance to win," coach Dave Wannstedt said Wednesday.

Jay Fiedler, who started Miami's first six games, was listed as questionable because he sprained his knee two weeks ago in the Dolphins' 19-13 overtime loss to New England. Fiedler was in uniform Monday night but was designated the No. 3 quarterback.

Fiedler took some snaps with the first team Wednesday. His knee has improved but is not 100 percent, Wannstedt said.

Griese hurt his right thumb in Monday's game. It was sore Wednesday but is not a concern, the coach said.
