Miami's Davis could miss Browns game with hamstring injury

It looks like the Miami Dolphins will be without starting cornerback Vontae Davis when the team takes on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

According to the Miami Herald, Davis has not practiced for the last two days with a hamstring injury and could miss the first game of his three-year career.

That would give Nolan Carroll his second career start opposite Sean Smith.

"I'm anxious, excited to get back out there especially knowing coming into the game they're relying on me to get the job done," said Carroll, who was beaten on the game-clinching touchdown pass to Houston's Andre Johnson in the fourth quarter last Sunday.

"I've taken my lumps, I know that. But I see it as a learning experience. I don't see it any other way. I'm not getting down on myself," Carroll said.

Notes:Dolphins linebacker Jason Taylor said Thursday he was disappointed that his critical comments to the team about its practice habits were shared by others outside the locker room. "That should have been a private moment," Taylor told the Herald. Asked whether his talk with the team could produce a different outcome Sunday, Taylor said: "I believe we're going to get on this airplane Saturday and go up to Cleveland and kick somebody's ass." ... Defensive end Tony McDaniel, out with an injury to his right hand, did not practice Thursday ... linebacker Karlos Dansby (groin) and receiver Roberto Wallace (quad) practiced for the second consecutive day on a limited basis.
