Perhaps as a preview of the expanded wildcat formation, the Miami Dolphins surprisingly designated rookie Pat White as their No. 2 quarterback for Sunday's game with the Atlanta Falcons.

Chad Henne is listed as the third, or emergency quarterback.

This allows the Dolphins the flexibility to utilize White at any point in the game.

The Dolphins did not show White in any wildcat formations during the preseason, but it has been highly anticipated that he would be the next surprise element in the package.
