NFL considers moving Miami Dolphins-Tampa Bay Bucs opener due to Hurricane Irma

The NFL is considering moving the Dolphins-Bucs opener in Miami to another site or earlier this week because of the Hurricane, a person familiar with the discussions said Monday.

The person confirmed the discussions to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league and teams aren't talking publicly about the options.

Switching the game to Thursday or Friday is being considered, the person said, because Irma could threaten South Florida over the weekend.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he has received updates on the status of the game but declined to discuss options.

"They've just told us that they've started their preparations and they're working on multiple contingency plans, too numerous to mention," Koetter said "Again, it's premature.
