Dolphins 31-year-old linebacker was reportedly found at airport after team filed missing persons report the day before a game

Miami Dolphins linebacker Lawrence Timmons was reportedly found at the airport on Sunday after the team filed a missing persons report, according to TMZ.

The team had reportedly grown concerned when the 31-year-old Timmons was not in his hotel room during bed check and filed the report.

Police reportedly found Timmons in the boarding area waiting to take a flight to Pennsylvania to see his baby daughter.

Timmons did not play in the Dolphins’ Week 2 win over the Los Angeles Chargers and though he says he wants to return to football, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the team is going to have Timmons meet with doctors to determine “what is wrong.” According to Schefter, one league source said they don’t think Timmons was showing early onset of CTE.

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase would not address questions about Timmons after Sunday’s game, saying, “I need to figure some things out before I talk about this.”

Timmons signed a two-year, $US10 million with the Dolphins this offseason.
