New Miami Dolphins QB Jay Cutler had to wait an extra week to make his debut with the team because of Hurricane Irma, so he’ll be doing it this Sunday at the Los Angeles Chargers.
Another former SEC player who will be on the other side of the ball is yawning.
Chargers DE Melvin Ingram, a first-round pick out of South Carolina in 2012, had a one-word response when asked about the potential issues the 11-year veteran signal caller from Vanderbilt could pose.

The Chargers’ defense did have some trouble last Sunday with Denver Broncos QB Trevor Siemian, who completed 17 of 28 passes for 219 yards with 2 TDs, adding one on the ground in a 24-21 win over the Chargers.
Still, Ingram did his part in the defeat, recording 1.5 sacks and 3 tackles.
The Dolphins were scheduled to host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Sunday before Hurricane Irma forced that game to be moved from Week 1 to Week 11 on Nov. 19.
It remains to be seen how the strong-armed yet streaky Cutler will perform with the Dolphins. He was retired before being lured back to the NFL with a one-year, $10 million deal. Miami made the pitch after former Texas A&M QB Ryan Tannehill suffered a knee injury this summer.
