Lawrence Timmons suspended indefinitely by Dolphins

Now, the Dolphins have announced that Timmons has been suspended indefinitely.

Timmons is in the first year of a two-year, $12 million contract, and was expected not only to be a significant contributor to the defense, but a team leader.

Timmons, who joined the Dolphins this season following 10 years with the Pittsburgh Steelers, was reported missing ahead of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Chargers in California when his hotel room was found to be empty.

"Nothing to add, for what I have right now", Gase told reporters.

Allen, Mike Hull and mainstay Kiko Alonso were able to accomplish enough Sunday to help the Dolphins defeat the Chargers 19-17, but continuing the season with only four linebackers (including Justin March-Lillard) is not feasible. After hours of trying to hunt Timmons down, police in the area finally located the Dolphins linebacker on Sunday morning, according to TMZ. "I've got a few other things I have to deal with the guys who played yesterday".

Miami signed Timmons during the offseason.

"I'm not saying anything right now", Gase said in his postgame press conference, via Pro Football Talk.

Timmons is now back with the team and is scheduled to meet with doctors, according to ESPN. Timmons was starting at outside linebacker and had his steak of 101 consecutive starts snapped.

Our sources say the team scrambled to find him - calling family and close friends before ultimately filing a missing persons report with local law enforcement.
