Dorsey (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Dorsey has been hindered by a knee injury since the preseason that has caused him to miss Week 5 and now Week 7. With Dorsey out, look for starting nose tackle Mike Purcell to see even more action than usual.
Dorsey returned to action last week after being sidelined in Week 5 due to a nagging knee injury. He was able to practice in full on Wednesday, but spent the rest of the week practicing in a limited role. The veteran is trending toward a game-time decision Sunday.
Dorsey (knee) will play Sunday against the Bills.
Dorsey was questionable heading into the matchup but will give it go this Sunday. Should he see his reps monitored, look for Mike Purcell to see increased action.
Dorsey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Bills.
Dorsey sat out last Thursday's game and the long week wasn't enough for him to get back to full health, though he did practice in a limited fashion. If he's held out once again look for Mike Purcell to handle the bulk of the nose tackle reps once again.
It's unclear what the specifics of Dorsey's knee injury are but it's severe enough to hold him out. Mike Purcell will be the team's only true nose tackle, though Tony Jerod-Eddie and Ronald Blair could rotate in for a couple reps.
