DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase says right tackle Ja'Wuan James' left hamstring injury could be a long-term issue, and he's undergoing further medical evaluation.

James was hurt in the loss Sunday to Oakland and sat out Thursday's practice, the first since that game. Miami next plays at Carolina on Monday.

James' absence could lead to some shuffling on the line. Guard Ted Larsen returned to practice last week after recovering from a torn biceps and is expected to move into the starting lineup.
