Shoulder bothering Dolphins QB Culpepper

DAVIE, Fla. (Oct. 5 2006) -- Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper was added to the team's injury report because of a shoulder problem, and missed at least a portion of the team's daily workout.

The Dolphins did not specify if Culpepper, who tore knee ligaments last season and is still battling mobility issues caused by that injury, missed the entire practice.

He was listed as probable for the Oct. 8 game at New England.

Culpepper, who was not on the Oct. 4 injury report, has been sacked 21 times this season, putting him on pace to be sacked more than any other quarterback in one year.

"That's just football," Culpepper said. "It doesn't worry me at all because I know we're going to get it right. I'm very positive about that because I know what we can do. I know it. I've seen it. We just have to do it on a consistent basis."

Culpepper has completed 81 of 134 passes for 929 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions for the Dolphins, who are off to a 1-3 start. His passer rating of 77.0 this season ranks 20th.
