Drake (hamstring) will play in the Dolphins' preseason finale Thursday versus the Titans, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Drake has not played in any of the Dolphins' preseason games due to a lingering hamstring injury. However, participation in Thursday's contest bodes very well for his health entering the regular season. Still, he remains firmly behind both Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster on the team's depth chart and, barring injury to those ahead of him, may struggle to gain any sort of fantasy relevance during his rookie campaign.
Howard (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.
The Dolphins and Gray agreed to a contract Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Landing the second tight-end role out of training camp, Gray earned 26 offensive snaps and 75 more on special teams over the first four games of 2015, during which he hauled in his only target. In the same game, though, he sustained a broken forearm and spent the rest of the season on injured reserve. Upon joining the Dolphins, he'll compete for one of the few TE spots behind Jordan Cameron.
Parker secured two of four targets for eight yards in Thursday's 17-6 preseason victory over the Falcons.
The 2015 No. 1 pick took a back seat to both Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry, coming in third in catches and targets to both players. Parker has had a relatively quiet summer after dealing with a hamstring issue and then sitting out the Dolphins' first preseason game. He now has four receptions for 24 yards over the last two weeks, but is slated to be a focal point of the offense, particularly downfield, once the regular campaign kicks off.
Jordan (knee) has been notified by the league he is eligible to begin practicing, Adam Schfter of ESPN reports.
While Jordan has been cleared to practice, he is still unable to physically do so. The 26-year-old defensive end is still rehabbing from a knee injury. He has not played since December of 2014, and will face stiff competition for playing time on an already deep D-line.
Anderson (knee) will not play in the Colt's preseason game against the Eagles on Saturday, Mike Chappell of indysportscentral.com reports.
Anderson missed time this offseason and training camp as he recovered from a torn ACL. Though he was removed from the PUP list earlier this week, the team is being cautious and will sit him for the team's third preseason game. He may see the field for Indianapolis' final preseason game, next week Thursday against the Bengals.
Davis has ligament damage in ankle and is expected to miss at least first month of season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Colts head coach Chuck Pagano had only termed Davis' injury as "week to week" but this report would indicate he'll be out much longer. With Davis, Patrick Robinson (groin), Darius Butler (hamstring) and Jalil Brown (ankle) all hurt, the Colts signed Antonio Cromartie on Monday.
Langford (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1, according to team doctors.
Earlier in the preseason, Langford suffered damage to cartilage in his knee but it shouldn't deter him from taking the field Week 1. Until then, look for Zach Kerr and Sterling Bailey to lead the charge at defensive end for the remainder of the preseason.
Geathers (foot) is considered doubtful for the team's regular season opener, Kevin Bowen of Colts.com reports.
Geathers has been dealing with a foot injury that he suffered during the offseason and despite original expectations that it wasn't a long-term injury, it appears he won't be ready in time for Week 1. He's been limited to biking and treadmill work recently and hasn't done any cutting, which makes it seem as if Geathers could still be a ways off from a return to the field. T.J. Green is currently the leading candidate to start at free safety for the Colts.
Jones will be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL policy on PEDs, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.
Jones missed the entire 2015 season due to torn ligaments in his ankle and did not participate in spring practices. He may have been sidelined to start the season even without the suspension, but this still hurts Indy's depth on the defensive line.
