LOS ANGELES - Former Steelers linebacker Lawrence Timmons was inactive for the Miami Dolphins' season opener Sunday after he unexpectedly left the team one day before the game.
Channel 11 has learned the team filed a missing person's report with police after Timmons' disappearance. The team got back in contact with him, but coaches decided he would not play in Sunday's game.
At a news conference Monday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he had not talked to Timmons, and there was no update on his status with the team.
