Scout.com has learned QB Joey Harrington is expected to make his first start for the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in place of starter Daunte Culpepper, who is suffering from a bruised shoulder. Culpepper will likely be active on Sunday as the No. 2 quarterback.
Harrington was acquired from the Detroit Lions for a 2007 conditional sixth-round pick. The pick could be as a high as a fifth-round pick if Harrington meets certain playing time parameters.
In four games in which the Dolphins went 1-3, Culpepper has completed 81 of 134 passes for 929 yards, but has only two touchdowns, three interceptions and has taken 21 sacks. He has a 77.0 passer rating.
