"J.P. is the starter, and we're going with J.P." That was Mike Mularkey after Sunday's loss to the Saints. "I'm not going to talk about starters at any position for either team today." That was Mike Mularkey today at his press conference (via the NFL Network).
Personally, I think the media have every right to press Mularkey on this issue because to say you're not going to talk about something usually means you're hiding something. And while the coach is well within his rights to withhold such information, the media have just as much right to ask tough questions.
Whatever the case, it looks like either Losman is on very thin ice as the starter or Mularkey is really trying to throw a monkey wrench in Miami's game planning. Given that game plans are usually installed on Wednesday, I'll go with the former.

Eight weeks ago, the Vikings were undefeated and ranked No. 1 in DVOA. Now they're 6-6 and probably done. What went wrong?
