First string QB Chad Henne went down during the first quarter after an eye injury, and Pat White got into a gnarly head-to-head collision, according to the Sun-Sentinal.com.

White was taken off the field by stretcher 10 minutes after the brutal crash between him and Steelers cornerback Ike Taylor. He is said to be doing okay, and wiggled his fingers before being taken off the field.

Thigpen, the third string QB, ended up throwing an interception late in the game, costing his team the win. He was traded to the Dolphins from Kansas City in late September. The score was 30-24 today.
