Dolphins' Crowder game-time decision for K.C.


DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins middle linebacker Channing Crowder was held out of practice Friday with a stiff right knee and is questionable for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano said Crowder will be a game-time decision. If he is unable to play, Akin Ayodele will start in his place.

Crowder watched practice from the sideline in sweat pants and a baseball camp Friday. He worked out on an exercise bike earlier this week but has not participated in any contact drills.

Crowder had 10 tackles against San Francisco last Sunday, giving him the team lead with 105 this year. He has started every game for the Dolphins this season.
