  • The Dolphins reinstated Timmons from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Timmons will play in Sunday's game against the Saints. After Timmons went AWOL ahead of the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Chargers to tend to a personal matter, the team suspended the linebacker and didn't provide any indication when he would return. His suspension will last a little over a week, and the expectation is that he'll resume practicing with the team Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game. Chase Allen ended up filling in at outside linebacker in the Week 3 loss to the Jets and recorded seven tackles, but is expected to see his snap count drop dramatically in Week 4 with Timmons back in the fold.

  • Timmons (personal) is scheduled to meet with doctors Monday,'s Adam Schefter reports. Timmons left the Dolphins to attend to a personal matter Saturday, and while he returned Sunday morning prior to kickoff, the team decided to make him inactive for a 19-17 win over the Chargers. Dolphins coach Adam Gase was hesitant to discuss the situation, saying that he needs to figure out details before providing any comment. Timmons had a streak of 101 consecutive starts before Sunday, and he apparently wants to return for Week 3 against the Jets. He'll first have to consult with doctors to determine whether that's in his best interest.

  • Timmons is not expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. The report suggests that Timmons is not with the team currently, with his official Week 2 status to be confirmed upon the release of the Dolphins' inactives in advance of Sunday's 4:05 ET kickoff.

  • Timmons signed a two-year, $12 million contract with the Dolphins on Friday, Adam Schefter of reports. Over the past 10 seasons with the Steelers, Timmons established himself as a leader on defense, only missing two games in his career. In Miami, he'll play alongside linebackers Kiko Alonso (thumb) and Koa Misi (neck). Last season Timmons recorded 114 tackles (78 solo), five pass deflections, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and a forced fumble through 16 games.

  • Timmons will visit the Dolphins, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. Set to hit unrestricted free agency, the 30-year-old Timmons likely will be Pittsburgh's top offseason priority, but the linebacker may be able to find a better contract elsewhere. With fellow inside linebacker Ryan Shazier proving to be an outstanding player in his own right (when healthy), the Steelers may not want to dole out top dollar to his aging position mate. Of course, there's plenty of room for both players to shine in the team's 3-4 defensive scheme.
