Heh..Saban says he has a booboo

Dolphins coach Nick Saban will make QB decision

Although Daunte Culpepper practiced Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against New England, the Dolphins will have a decision to make on his starting status.

Coach Nick Saban said Friday that Culpepper has a bruised right (throwing) shoulder and that is the reason he missed a portion of practice Thursday.

Saban also said he will have to decide sometime before Sunday's 1 p.m. kickoff whether to start Culpepper or backup Joey Harrington.

Saban said he would discuss the decision with Culpepper but ultimately would make a decision that could potentially ''protect people from themselves,'' referring to Culpepper's desire to compete.

Culpepper declined to speak to the media Friday.

Also on Friday, Saban said Sammy Morris would be activated for Sunday's game while linebacker Derrick Pope, nursing a hamstring injury, was downgraded to questionable and likely will not play.

Sounds like the coaches want to make a change and they are giving him an out.

I knew picking up the Patriots D/ST was a good idea :)
