DAVIE, Fla. -- Linebacker Jason Taylor is sitting out practice as the Miami Dolphins begin preparations for their game against Houston.

Taylor rode an exercise bike Wednesday when the Dolphins started drills ahead of Sunday's game.

Taylor has been nursing a sore right shoulder for more than two weeks but has started every game and has seven sacks this year.
