DAVIE, Fla. (AP) With Ryan Tannehill ruled out of Sunday's game against Detroit, Brock Osweiler will get another start at quarterback, and the Miami Dolphins' super sub is optimistic he can deliver a successful encore to the most prolific game of his career last week.

But then Osweiler is always optimistic, even when he's playing lousy.

"My confidence," he said, "will never waver."

The people confirmed the NFL's interest in the matter to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league wasn't commenting.


Bears' Mack day to day with ankle injury

Officiating low focus at owners meetings
