Dolphins LB Porter inactive vs. Bills because of hamstring injury

MIAMI -- Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter is missing just the seventh game of his 11-year NFL career.

Porter was inactive Sunday against the Buffalo Bills because of a sore hamstring. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Charlie Anderson. It's the first game Porter has missed since 2006.

Starting left tackle Demetrius Bell (groin) was inactive for the injury-plagued Bills, and Kirk Chambers moved into the starting lineup. Reserve defensive lineman John McCargo (calf) also was inactive.
