MIAMI -- Quarterback Chad Henne is listed as doubtful for Thursday night's game against Chicago, while two other Miami Dolphins starters are out because of injuries.

Center Joe Berger (knee) and safety Chris Clemons (hamstring) will miss the game. Henne might be available as an emergency quarterback, but Tyler Thigpen is expected to make his first NFL start since 2008 with Kansas City.

Pro Bowl tackle Jake Long (shoulder) is questionable, and seven Dolphins are listed as probable, including receiver Brandon Marshall (hamstring), who joined the injury report Wednesday.

Cory Procter is expected to make his first start since 2008 for Berger, and rookie Reshad Jones will make his first NFL start in place of Clemons.
