    08/26/16DLAdrian ClaybornShoulderPROBABLEClayborn (shoulder) is expected back for Week 1, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Clayborn was scheduled for an MRI on Friday, after injuring his shoulder during Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins. He's expected to start at left defensive end, but he may lose a lot of snaps to Brooks Reed and/or Dwight Freeney.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/26/16WRJustin HardyAnkleQUESTIONABLEHardy suffered an ankle injury in Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins and will not return to the game.

    The Falcons would rather be safe than sorry as they give the wideout the rest of the night off. Hardy will join Julio Jones on the sidelines for the remainder of the game, who also suffered some sort of ankle injury on Thursday night. The severity of the injury is still unknown, but expect more clarity on the matter once the team releases information in the next couple of days.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/26/16WRJulio JonesAnklePROBABLEHead coach Dan Quinn said Monday that Jones (ankle) will return to practice either Wednesday or next Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones said he would have kept playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Dolphins if it had been a regular-season contest. There's been no cause to doubt his downplaying of the injury, as the Falcons have confirmed that they expect him back in short order. Even if he does return Wednesday, the veteran wideout won't play in Thursday's preseason finale. It sounds as if he'll get in a full week of practice in preparation for Week 1 against the Bucs.

    08/26/16DBKeanu NealKneeQUESTIONABLENeal (torso) injured his knee in Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Neal is dealing with his second injury of the preseason. First it was a torso strain that kept him out of the team's first preseason game and now his knee injury. Despite being dinged up a bit, the rookie did tell teammates that he didn't think the injury was serious and he expects to play in the teams Week 1 matchup with Tampa Bay.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/26/16RBBrandon WildsKneePROBABLEWilds (knee) is doubtful to play in the Falcons' preseason finale Thursday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

    Wilds went down in the team's third preseason contest last Thursday and was unable to return. Expect his status to be confirmed before kickoff.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16KMatt BryantUndisclosedPROBABLEBryant (undisclosed) did not practice Monday due to muscle tightness, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

    Bryant was held out of Thursday's preseason game due to an undisclosed injury and has now missed the team's past two practices. It's unclear if the muscle tightness spurred the absence, and he's currently without a timetable for return.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/25/16LBDwight FreeneyBackQUESTIONABLEFreeney (back) returned to practice on Monday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

    Freeney has been dealing with a back strain throughout the preseason, which kept him off the field for Thursday's preseason loss to the Dolphins. While he did return to practice, it seems unlikely the coaching will risk the chance of the injury becoming worse and will keep the veteran on the sidelines for Thursday's preseason finale against the Jaguars.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/19/16DLVic BeasleyShoulderPROBABLEBeasley has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder, but he's still expected to play in Atlanta's third preseason game, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

    Beasley missed Thursday's preseason game against the Browns, and while he may end up sitting out another exhibition, this doesn't sound like a threat to his Week 1 availability. Selected eighth overall in the 2015 NFL Draft, Beasley had just 20 tackles and four sacks while working in a part-time role as a rookie. He's expected to start and take on a considerable snap count this season, working as a hybrid linebacker/defensive end, with his role mostly focused on getting after the quarterback.

    (Updated 08/19/2016)
    08/12/16DBKemal IshmaelShoulderPROBABLEIshmael (shoulder) took part in 11-on-11 drills Monday for the first time since injuring his shoulder, Vaughn McClure of ESPN reports.

    Ishmael hadn't practiced in full since injuring his shoulder in the Falcons' preseason opener. His return is an encouraging sign for the safety, who's expected to start for Atlanta after playing rotationally in 2015.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/10/16RBTerron WardAnklePROBABLEWard (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Dolphins.

    Ward hasn't played so far this preseason and it's unclear if he'll be able to return for the team's final go before the regular season, next Thursday against the Jaguars. He's expected to be the team's No. 3 option at running back, behind Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but his lengthy absence will again open the door Gus Johnson to take a shot at that role with added game snaps on Thursday.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    07/29/16DBJalen CollinsSuspensionSUSPENDCollins tallied 17 total tackles in 16 games during his rookie year with the Falcons.

    Collins was limited to rotational work, only seeing the field on 28.6 percent of the total defensive snaps. He'll likely earn more playing time in the coming years, but the Falcons have a pretty young core of secondary players, meaning it won't be easy for Collins to ascend the ranks.

    (Updated 01/18/2016)
    05/25/16LBBrooks ReedShoulderPROBABLEReed was limited to 17 tackles in 13 games with the Falcons in 2015.

    Reed failed to record a sack for the first time in his career, and he only played in 32.9 percent of the defensive snaps. He has four years remaining on his contract, so Dan Quinn will need to find new ways to get production out of Reed in 2016.

    Miami Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/30/16LBZach VigilBackOUTVigil (back) was placed on the Dolphins' reserve/NFI list on Tuesday.

    Vigil has been dealing with a nagging back injury as of late, and will now be sidelined for the first six weeks of the regular season. When healthy, he'll likely return to a special teams role in which he recorded 18 tackles and a blocked punt across 16 games during the 2015 campaign.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/29/16QBMatt MooreConcussionPROBABLEMoore (concussion) returned to practice Monday, James Walker of ESPN reports.

    Moore was spotted back on the practice field for the first time since suffering a concussion in Miami's second preseason game. Despite only participating in individual drills, it's encouraging to see Moore back on the gridiron. Assuming there are no setbacks, Moore should be ready to serve as Miami's primary backup to Ryan Tannehill in Week 1.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/29/16RBIsaiah PeadHamstringQUESTIONABLEHead coach Adam Gase expects Pead (hamstring) to be sidelined for at least two weeks, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Pead had roughed up his hamstring during Thursday's preseason tilt against the Falcons, but it was initially thought to be minor. That is evidently not the case anymore, and the Dolphins now have a tough decision to make regarding Pead's future with the team. Though he enjoyed a solid preseason, Miami's RB depth chart is a gallery of tailbacks susceptible to injury and there simply may not be room for an already-injured body.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/27/16DLTerrence FedeKneeQUESTIONABLEFede suffered a sprained MCL versus the Falcons on Thursday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fede would've been on the low end of a defensive line rotation but this injury could find him on the cutting room floor before the season begins.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16LBJelani JenkinsKneeQUESTIONABLEThe procedure Jenkins had on his knee was termed to be a minor knee scope, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Dolphins are hopeful that Jenkins will be able to play Week 1 but even if that timetable is to optimistic he shouldn't miss more than a game or two.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/26/16DLNdamukong SuhAnklePROBABLEHead coach Adam Gase said after Thursday's game that Suh's ankle was "ok," Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    There was a scary moment in Thursday's preseason game that resulted in Suh gingerly walking back to the locker room with the help of team trainers. Fortunately, Gase's comments suggest that Suh was able to dodge any serious injury to his ankle. The Dolphins figure to have an official update on Suh's status in the coming days.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/25/16DBXavien HowardKneePROBABLEHoward (knee) will play in the Dolphins' preseason finale Thursday versus the Titans, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    After missing the entirety of training camp while recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, Howard will finally make his NFL debut. Though just the preseason, Thursday's tilt could prove to be valuable preparation for the rookie as he remains on track to play Week 1 and may be handed all the snaps he can handle given the current state of the Dolphins' talent-barren cornerback depth chart.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/25/16DLCameron WakeAchillesPROBABLEWake (achilles) played in Thursday's preseason win over the Falcons, but said afterwards that his achilles is "probably not" at 100 percent, Armando Salguergo of the Miami Herald reports.

    Wake is now 10 months removed from his torn achilles tendon that ended his 2015 campaign, and he appears to be making good progress. It's rare for teams to play one of their better players in a preseason game when they aren't totally healthy, so Wake's play on Thursday is an encouraging sign that he's nearing full health, even if he's not there yet. He isn't expected to miss any regular season time due to the injury, even as he continues through the final stages of rehab and recovery.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/24/16DBIfo Ekpre-OlomuKneeOUTEkpre-Olomu was waived/injured by the Dolphins on Monday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

    Ekpre-Olomu has not been able to play an NFL snap since suffering an ACL in the 2014 Rose Bowl as part of the Oregon Ducks. Once an All-American cornerback at the college level, Ekpre-Olomu will have to prove he is healthy enough to play at a high level before he finds another NFL home, as the knee injury has been one that he just has not been able to shake yet.

    (Updated 08/08/2016)
    08/23/16DBChimdi ChekwaThighPROBABLEChekwa (thigh) will not play in Saturday's preseason tilt against the Falcons, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    Chekwa has not played during the preseason so far and that won't change in the Dolphin's third game, as the corner is still dealing with a thigh injury. Though he returned to practice on Tuesday the team doesn't want to push him too much before he's fully healthy. It's unclear if he'll play in the team's final preseason game, next Thursday against the Titans.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/10/16DLEarl MitchellCalfPROBABLEMitchell (calf) is progressing in his injury recovery and expects to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, James Walker of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

    Mitchell sounds very optimistic regarding his status moving forward as he remains on the journey back to full health. The Dolphins begin their season Sept. 11 against the Seahawks, and Mitchell hopes to be on the field next to fellow defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/05/16RBKenyan DrakeHamstringQUESTIONABLEDrake (hamstring) said Tuesday he still isn't 100 percent healthy, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Despite his admission, Drake is expected to make his first NFL appearance in Thursday's preseason finale against the Titans. As a third-round rookie, Drake is a lock to make the final roster, but he's clearly behind Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster on the depth chart. If the Dolphins keep four running backs, Drake could open the regular season as a gameday inactive.

    (Updated 08/30/2016)
    08/05/16DBJordan LucasLegQUESTIONABLELucas left practice early Friday due to a leg injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    There was no immediate word as to the severity of the injury or to how long Lucas would be out of camp. The sixth-round pick has a chance to make an impact this season if he can impress the coaching staff in camp as the Dolphins are thin at corner.

    (Updated 08/05/2016)
    07/31/16DLDion JordanKneeOUTJordan (knee) will be placed on the reserve/non-football injury list to start the season, ruling him out for the first six weeks, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

    Picked No. 3 overall in 2013, the 26-year-old Jordan was suspended for all of 2015 due to a repeat violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. Although he was conditionally reinstated by the league, Jordan hasn't been able to practice while recovering from offseason knee surgery. He has just three sacks in 16 career appearances.
