The Miami Dolphins have yet to sell enough tickets to ensure that their No. 1 rivalry game will be televised Sunday, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
The Dolphins were granted an extension by the NFL until Friday in the hope of selling 85 percent of non-premium tickets needed under the league's revised blackout policy for Sunday's game against the New York Jets at Sun Life Stadium to be televised locally.
"We're hopeful of getting it on local television. We're still hopeful of selling this game out," Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said Thursday. "We said last week that we would be looking at this on a week-to-week basis."
The Dolphins bought up an undisclosed number of tickets to get last week's home opener on television. The Jets game was expected to sell well enough on its own merits, considering numerous New York fans in South Florida and the Dolphins coming off an impressive victory against the Raiders behind rookie quaterback Ryan Tannehill, factor in Tim Tebow and former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano with the Jets, and the game offers arguably the most compelling story lines of the eight-game home schedule.

Many teams deny the entertaining Hard Knocks TV show because owners and coaches feel it is a distraction and players would lose focus because of all the media attention. It seems as if Reggie Bush and the Miami Dolphins players didn’t benefit from the show either.
“I don’t think guys were in favor of it, but we used it to our best advantage and just had fun with it and...
DAVIE, Fla. As many saw on Hard Knocks, Ryan Tannehill is hardly a flamboyant guy.
Hes tweeted once since July 20, and that was to simply to display a picture of a product that helps keep him cool in the Florida sun. When Tannehill was asked earlier this week what Dolphins fans say to him when hes out in public, he said, I dont go out much. I stay home.
Maybe the Miami rookie...
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Miami Dolphins linebacker Kevin Burnett is sidelined by a foot injury, raising doubts about his availability for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Burnett was added to the injury report Thursday, when he did not practice. He missed much of training camp with a back injury but started the Dolphins' first two games.
Reserve defensive tackle Tony...
While my colleagues have focused their efforts on covering the Dolphins matchup against the Jets and the return of Daniel Thomas, I thought it would be cool to explore the idea of re-signing the Dolphins best weapon on the team, Reggie Bush.Consequently, Jeff Ireland got Reggie Bush in a trade for Jonathan Amaya and a 6th rounder. Reggie was a first round pick of the draft that...
DAVIE, Fla. Theres a guy wearing green who Wednesday actually put the Dolphins and playoffs in the same sentence.
No, not the Dolphins shade of green, the Jets one. The surprising declaration came from New York quarterback Mark Sanchez.
If he plays well, that team can make it to the playoffs, Sanchez said about Miami rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
So now we have yet another...
During Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders at Sun Life Stadium, beleaguered Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland had an awkward (and what eventually turned into a regrettable) interaction with a fan while walking around the concourse at halftime. While the Dolphins would ultimately beat the Raiders on that given Sunday, many in the Dolphins [...]
Miami running back Daniel Thomas (concussion) is probable to play in Week 3.Fantasy Spin:Thomas sat out last week, giving rookie Lamar Miller a chance to make his NFL debut. Miller rushed for 65 yards on 10 carries but only because Reggie Bush laid waste to Oakland's defense, allowing Miami to rest him in the fourth quarter. Neither Thomas nor Miller is a fantasy option at this...
Miami running back Daniel Thomas has passed concussion tests and was back at practice on Wednesday.Fantasy Spin:Rookie Lamar Miller served as Reggie Bush's backup last week, but neither Miller or Thomas has any fantasy value while Bush is playing at such a high level.
Another week in the NFL is in the books on the young 2012 season and already we have seen some monster performances, as well as spectacular let downs. The AFC saw dominating wins from the likes of the Houston Texans and the Miami Dolphins, so it should come as no surprise that they both featured a player that was named an AFC Player of the Week on each side of the ball.
On the offensive...
The Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders announced they have avoided blackouts, and their home games on Sunday will be televised locally. The San Diego Chargers' home game against Atlanta pitting a pair of 2-0 teams, will be blacked out in the San Diego area. More than 9,000 tickets were reportedly still available at the deadline. The Dolphins and Raiders aren't necessarily...
