There’s a surprise scratch at receiver for the Dolphins — but not who you think

Receiver news here:

Kenny Stills will play Sunday. Leonte Carroo will not.

But it was not because of an injury. Carroo is a healthy scratch.

For Carroo, it’s yet another setback for a player who has yet to live up to his third-round draft pedigree. Rashawn Scott, who leapfrogged him on the depth chart in 2016, appears to have done so again.

Stills, meanwhile, is active three days after injuring his back in practice.

Other lineup news:

Chase Allen will start at linebacker with Rey Maualuga gone. Maualuga was cut Saturday after an early morning arrest at a Miami nightclub.

Meanwhile, Damien Williams will start again at running back, but he is expected to share snaps with Kenyan Drake.

Full list of Dolphins inactives: Carroo, quarterback David Fales, cornerback Jordan Lucas, cornerback Torry McTyer, running back De’Veon Smith, guard Isaac Asiata and tackle Zach Sterup.
