Highlights from Adam Gase’s Monday news conference:

• Jay Cutler is in concussion protocol, but Gase suggested he will be the starter over Matt Moore when healthy.

“Obviously him being in protocol, I don’t know how long it will be,” Gase said.

Asked if he will be the starter when healthy, Gase said: “He’s done everything I’ve asked him to do. There’s no reason for me to say he’s not.”

Asked if Cutler has expressed any desire to end his career because of a concussion this season, Gase said he had not spoken with him.

The Dolphins are not saying more about the severity of Cutler’s concussion because the NFL does not want teams giving progress reports for players in the protocol.

Does he need to dress three quarterbacks once Cutler is cleared? Gase wasn’t sure. “You are hoping for the best. It’s a tough position to be in when you get to backup quarterback and don’t have anything behind him.”
