With the injury to Ryan Tannehill and the signing of Jay Cutler, the Dolphins’ offense looks significantly different than it did just a couple days ago. Cutler has impressed since arriving in Miami, but he won’t be out there for Thursday’s preseason opener:

That leaves Matt Moore, who was the starter for all of about 48 hours, along with 2016 seventh-round pick Brandon Doughty and David Fales to man the quarterback position for Miami.

Another Dolphins player to watch will be second-round rookie Raekwon McMillan, who has already entrenched himself as the team’s starting inside linebacker:

The Falcons also have some intriguing young defensive players. Duke Riley, a third-round pick out of LSU, is behind De’Vondre Campbell on the team’s unofficial depth chart but is expected to eventually overtake him for the third linebacker spot, while fifth-round defensive back Damontae Kazee has drawn praise from Julio Jones:

Throw in first-round defensive end Takk McKinley, and the Falcons look to have a nice infusion of youth on the defensive end to pair with last year’s explosive offense. We’ll see on Thursday if that translates to game action.
