TORONTO - The Dolphins have their designated No. 1 quarterback. The Browns have two No. 1s. And, the Texans have none.

Roughly speaking.

With the season opener peeking over the horizon the quarterback situation in the NFL is so muddled even Rex Grossman, who hasn’t thrown a pass since 2011, and Brady Quinn, who played backup in Denver to Tim Tebow, are still considered viable options.

Sort of. Both had workouts Monday with the Dolphins.

Miami has settled on putting its fortunes in the hands of Ryan Tannehill as its starter.

But the Dolphins are looking for a backup. Thus the interest in Grossman or Quinn. Even John Skelton got a look. As for Tebow himself? Seems he doesn’t have a prayer; all 32 teams shying away from the drama his arrival at any camp would bring.

Carolina got some good news Monday when Cam Newton was given clearance to play Sunday against the Chiefs.

But there is still plenty of uncertainty.
