    08/22/16RBKenyan DrakeHamstringQUESTIONABLEThough Drake (hamstring) has returned to practice, he won't play Thursday against the Falcons, the Miami Herald reports. "It's a very lingering injury, especially in my case because it's the second one in a couple of months," Drake noted. "My kind of game, I need that burst. So until I feel like I have that burst, I'm not going to feel 100 percent."

    With Jay Ajayi and Arian Foster atop the Dolphins' RB depth chart, Drake is off the short-term fantasy radar, and his hamstring issue hasn't helped his chances of making an early-season impact. Meanwhile, fellow RB Isaiah Pead is making a strong case to stick with the team, while Damien Williams and Daniel Thomas also remain in the team's backfield mix.

    08/20/16QBMatt MooreHeadQUESTIONABLEMoore (concussion) will not play in Thursday's preseason tilt with Atlanta, the team's official site reports.

    Moore suffered a concussion back in the Dolphins second preseason matchup against the Cowboys. It doesn't come as much of a surprise that the 32-year-old won't play considering he did not partake in practice throughout the week leading up to Thursday. Miami remains optimistic that Moore will be ready for Week 1, but in the meantime, Brandon Doughty and Zac Dysert will serve as the primary backups to Ryan Tannehill during his absence.

    08/18/16DBXavien HowardKneePROBABLEHoward (knee) is expected to be ready to play in the season opener for Miami, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

    The Dolphins need any and every healthy cornerback in order to compete this season. Howard won't play Thursday versus Atlanta but the Dolphins are hoping to ramp up his practice routine so that they might be able to get him some reps in the final preseason game next week.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/09/16TEMarQueis GrayKneeQUESTIONABLEThe 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.

    08/05/16WRDeVante ParkerHamstringPROBABLEParker had two receptions for 16 yards in the Dolphins 41-14 loss to Dallas on Friday.

    While the numbers aren't all that exciting it was good to see Parker on the field after battling foot injuries all offseason. Parker is expected to be the big play receiver in the Miami offense but expectations may have to be kept in check until quarterback Ryan Tannehill proves he is ready to take that next step into an elite NFL signal caller.

    07/31/16DLDion JordanUndisclosedNFIJordan (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.

    08/16/16DLMarcell DareusSuspensionSUSPENDDareus (suspension) has opted to leave the Bills in order to receive treatment. "After careful consideration of recent events within my life, I have made the decision to enter a rehabilitation facility," he said in a statement. "I feel this is the best decision for me, my family and my teammates as I move forward with my career. I appreciate the support of my teammates and the Bills organization through this process."

    Earlier this week, Dareus received his second suspension for a violation of the NFL's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse. Among other issues in his personal life, he'll extend his time away from the team with the aim of getting on the straight and narrow. If the defensive tackle indeed comes back to the Bills with a different state of mind, his pass-rushing prowess will be valuable, as he's notched 31.5 sacks in 78 career games.

    08/16/16LBManny LawsonUpper bodyPROBABLELawson (pectoral) may be facing a one-game suspension for a domestic violence incident, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reports.

    The nature of Lawson's offense is unclear, as violations of the NFL's domestic violence policy are supposed to result in a minimum suspension of six games. The veteran outside linebacker was just activated from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday, after tearing his pectoral while lifting weights in the offseason. Between injuries and suspensions, the Buffalo front seven is already looking severely depleted.

    08/10/16LBReggie RaglandKneeOUTRagland's knee has too much swelling for a clear diagnosis to made right now regarding the injury he suffered during last Friday's practice, NFL.com reports.

    Ragland had an initial MRI that revealed what is believed to be a partial ACL tear, but was slated to get a second opinion Monday. However, since his knee is still pretty swollen, coach Rex Ryan could not give an update on his condition following practice. As a result, Ragland's situation will have to continue to be monitored, but Buffalo's signings of veteran linebackers Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne on Sunday seem to indicate Ragland could be slated for an extended sideline stint.

    (Updated 08/08/2016)
    08/08/16DLKyle WilliamsKneePROBABLEWilliams, who was activated off the PUP list Monday, has been practicing all week.

    We'll see if Williams plays in the team's preseason opener Saturday, though there's a noticeable difference in the defense when Williams and Marcell Dareus are out there at the same time.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    07/29/16WRKolby ListenbeeUndisclosedNFICoach Rex Ryan said Wednesday that Listenbee (hernia) is not close to returning to practice, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    It's highly doubtful the super-fast sixth-rounder will be in the lineup come Week 1, so he's looking like a prime PUP or practice squad candidate.
