Sources: Tunsil injured himself in hotel shower

By: Andy Slater

A key piece of the Miami Dolphins offensive line was missing on Sunday and according to multiple sources, Laremy Tunsil was injured before he ever got to Hard Rock Stadium.

Tunsil informed the Dolphins' staff that he fell in the shower at the team's hotel, according to sources.

It is normal for a team to stay at a hotel the night before a home game.

The severity of Tunsil's injury is unknown. 

The team prior to the kickoff against the Titans on Sunday said Tunsil hurt himself preparing for the game.

After the game, Dolphins' head coach Adam Gase was asked how Tunsil got injured.

"He was getting ready for the game. Iā€™m still kind of sorting everything out right now," Gase said.

The Dolphins couldn't be reached for comment on Sunday night.

(Update: Gase confirmed this report on Monday afternoon)

Without the team's first-round draft pick and other injured offensive linemen, quarterback Ryan Tannehill was sacked six times in the Dolphins' 30-17 loss to the Titans.
