Dolphins won't have starting C Grove for Bills game

DAVIE, Fla. -- Miami Dolphins starting center Jake Grove will miss Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills with an ankle injury.

Joe Berger will replace Grove. Berger will be making his first NFL start in his fifth season in the league and third with the Dolphins. He appeared in three games as a rookie for Miami in 2005 after he was claimed off waivers from the team that drafted him in the seventh round, the Carolina Panthers.

Second-year defensive end Lionel Dotson (ankle) is also out for the game and the Dolphins signed rookie defensive end Ryan Baker from the practice squad. To make room for Baker on the 53-man roster, defensive end Evan Oglesby was waived.
