CARSON, Calif.–The Dolphins are mostly healthy after getting an extended break between the third preseason game and their season opener, and they’re pretty much intact for this afternoon’s game at the Chargers.

One notable absence is veteran linebacker Lawrence Timmons, who unexpectedly left the team and is not at Stubhub Center today. Miami knows his whereabouts and it’s not related to a legal or injury situation, but there’s been little clarity on what led to his departure. Dolphins coach Adam Gase will speak after the game.

Two positives for the Dolphins’ offense: Running back Jay Ajayi and leading receiver Jarvis Landry are both playing despite knee issues.

Here are today’s inactives:

LB Rey Maualuga
LB Lawrence Timmons
CB Cordrea Tankersley
CB Torry McTyer
OT Eric Smith
OT Sam Young
OG Isaac Asiata
