Lemon to remain Miami's starting quarterback vs. Buffalo
DAVIE, Fla. -- Cleo Lemon will remain the Dolphins' starting quarterback when Miami plays against Buffalo on Sunday.
Coach Cam Cameron announced the move Monday, ending speculation that rookie John Beck would get his first NFL start for the winless Dolphins.
"We have two guys who don't have a lot of experience," Cameron said. "We're going to need them both."
Trent Green started the first five games, but his season ended Oct. 20 when he went on injured reserve following his second severe concussion in 13 months. The Dolphins have lost their last three games with Lemon as the quarterback.
Beck, the 40th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft, was the first quarterback the Dolphins drafted in the first or second round since Dan Marino (27th) in 1983.
