Fiedler's knee still too sore

DAVIE, Fla. -- Quarterback Jay Fiedler had a setback in his
rehabilitation from a sprained knee, meaning Brian Griese will
start a third consecutive game for the Miami Dolphins.

Fiedler sprained a ligament in his left knee against New England
on Oct. 19 and has practiced sparingly since. He was the No. 3
quarterback Sunday against Indianapolis.

With Fiedler still experiencing soreness and wanting more
lateral movement, team doctors added more rest and less work to his
rehab this week. But the Dolphins hope he will be able to back up
Griese at Tennessee on Sunday.

"The goal now is to at least put him in a position to be the
second," coach Dave Wannstedt said.

Griese, signed in the offseason to give the team more depth,
completed 18 of 29 passes for 231 yards and a touchdown against the
Colts. He also was sacked five times and fumbled twice.

He threw for 192 yards and three touchdowns in his debut against
San Diego.
