There have been no details surrounding Timmons' situation, as head coach Adam Gase said Monday that he needed to know all the details before commenting. Per the Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, the maximum amount of time the Dolphins can suspend Timmons is four weeks, but the team may release a more exact timetable once they offer more information.
Timmons (personal) is scheduled to meet with doctors Monday, ESPN.com'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 (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Timmons was reportedly not with the team earlier in the day due to an undisclosed reason, so he'll be kept to the sideline as a result. Undrafted rookie Chase Allen will draw the start at outside linebacker with Timmons out, while Justin March-Lillard figures to provide depth behind Allen and Kiko Alonso.
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.
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.
