    , 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.”A journeyman already at age 27, Osweiler will start his second game in a
    row for the Dolphins (4-2). They announced Wednesday that Tannehill will not
    play against the Lions because of an injury to his throwing shoulder.More Miami

    Tannehill to Titans for picksTannehill also missed an overtime win against the
    Chicago Bears last Sunday, and Osweiler stepped in to throw for a career-high
    380 yards and three touchdowns.Thanks to that performance, Brocktober now comes
    with a hashtag on Twitter.“It’s fun,” Osweiler said. “Keep using it.”Brocktober
    is likely to continue for the rest of the
    month ,
    at least. It’s doubtful Tannehill would return next week, when the Dolphins have
    little preparation time before a Thursday night game at Houston on Oct. 25.“I
    know what Brock brings to the table,” coach Adam Gase said. “I know what his
    strengths are and what he likes to do. I’m real comfortable with where we’re at
    right now.”Tannehill was on the field in shoulder pads during practice
    Wednesday, but didn’t throw because rest for the shoulder has been prescribed.
    Gase said Tannehill is still expected to return at some point this season.“It’s
    really day to day,” Gase said. “Every week hopefully we’ll see
    progress.”Tannehill’s injury has given Osweiler a chance to start for Gase for
    the first time. They were together for four seasons in Denver, where Gase was an
    assistant and Osweiler was on the bench behind Peyton Manning.Osweiler washed
    out as a starter in Houston in 2016, and went 0-4 as a starter when he returned
    to Denver in 2017. He then signed with Miami because of the chance to reunite
    with Gase 鈥?and perhaps run his offense.“It’s something I’ve been wanting for a
    lot of years,” Osweiler said. “I heard a lot of play calls come in through that
    earpiece that weren’t coming in for me. To go out last week and be the guy
    finally pulling the trigger, it was a very special day.”Led by Osweiler, the
    Dolphins netted 541 yards against the Bears, their highest total in 30 years.
    Among those applauding the performance was Manning, who happened to be at the
    game.“We talked before the game in the locker
    room Womens

    ,” Osweiler said. “We talked after the game as well,
    and Monday morning. Payton and I spent four years together in Denver. We really
    built a tremendous relationship. I think we have a ton of respect for each
    other.”Osweiler said the primary lesson he learned from Manning was how to
    prepare. As a result, Osweiler was ready last week, even though he took first
    snaps during practice.This week he’ll get all the reps with the first team, and
    he’ll have input on the game plan. Otherwise, he said, this week will be no
    different.He’s confident.“I’ve been through some ups and downs and I’ve learned
    so much,” he said. “I’ve always believed in who I was. None of this has taken me
    by surprise, but it’s special because in this league, you never know how many
    opportunities you’re going to get.” Can he be the starting right tackle in
    Miami?" />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteThe

    ramifications towards next year’s compensatory picks.And with plenty of holes on

    , it was obvious the Dolphins would have interest in a
    veteran or two.The first of those signings cane minutes ago, as the Dolphins may
    have found their starting right tackle.According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the
    Miami Dolphins have reached an agreement with free agent offensive tackle,
    Jordan Mills. Mills, 28, was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the fifth round of
    the 2013 NFL Draft, and had short stints in Dallas and Detroit before finding a
    long-term home in Buffalo.Over the last three seasons, Mills started all 16
    games for the Bills at right tackle.
