ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) -Oakland Raiders quarterback Josh McCown will miss Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins with a broken toe on his left foot, giving Daunte Culpepper the start against his former team.
McCown has not practiced all week but coach Lane Kiffin waited until Friday to officially declare that he would not be able to play Sunday.
McCown broke his toe in the first quarter of last week's 26-24 victory over Cleveland. Culpepper replaced him in the second half and finished the victory.
Culpepper, who was released by the Dolphins in July after one season, will get his first start since last Oct. 1 for Miami.
Andrew Walter will be the backup Sunday and No. 1 overall draft pick JaMarcus Russell will be the third-stringer. Russell has been with the team for a little more than two weeks after a lengthy contract dispute.
Pro Bowl defensive end Derrick Burgess, who missed last week's game with a calf injury, is listed as questionable. Offensive linemen Robert Gallery and Jeremy Newberry are probable for the game.
