    04/27/16DBIfo Ekpre-OlomuKneePROBABLEThe Dolphins claimed Ekpre-Olomu off waivers from the Browns on Tuesday.

    Ekpre-Olomu has endured a rough 16-month stretch due to a torn ACL sustained in a December of 2014 practice while still a student-athlete at the University of Oregon. Projected to be plucked in the first or second round of the 2015 NFL Draft, he tumbled to the seventh round and upheld the expectation that he wouldn't play as a rookie. With new management in Cleveland, a recent MRI on the knee was concerning enough for the organization to cut ties with the cornerback, but the Dolphins will nonetheless see if Ekpre-Olomu can channel his previous talent.

    04/27/16DLDion JordanSuspensionSUSPENDMiami is open to having Jordan return to the team, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    Jordan was suspended for all of the 2015 season for violating the League's substance abuse policy. The Dolphins still need help along the defensive line even with the addition of Mario Williams. Miami will meet with Jordan and if he convinces them that he is serious about staying in the NFL they will welcome him back to the team.

    04/27/16LBChris McCainKneePROBABLEMcCain (knee) season ended Tuesday as he was placed on IR, reports the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero.

    McCain and Koa Misi were both placed on IR after the game Sunday. McCain's 2015 campaign ends with two whole tackles and a sack. Safe to say he won't be missed.

    04/27/16DLCameron WakeAchilles PROBABLEWake (Achilles) ran sprints with no noticeable limp at voluntary minicamp on Tuesday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

    Wake also took part in a sack drill that required hand and hip movement. He presumably isn't ready to make hard cuts, but it does seem he's on/ahead of schedule in his recovery from the torn Achilles he suffered in late October. The 34-year-old defensive end is believed to be seeking an extension as he enters the final year of his contract, and the Dolphins presumably hope to reduce his $9.8 million cap hit for 2016. If not for the major injury, it would actually be a very reasonable price tag for a player that had seven sacks and four forced fumbles in seven games last season.

    Buffalo Injuries
    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    04/27/16TECharles ClayBackPROBABLEClay (back) has restructured his contract, BuffaloBills.com reports.

    It doesn't sound like this did much if anything to Clay's total pay, but the offseason math with help the cap-crunched Bills try to re-sign some of their free agents, namely Cordy Glenn and Richie Incognito. We haven't heard much about Clay's back injury either after it forced him to miss the final three games, but it didn't sound like anything serious at the time and the Bills were long out of the playoffs. He'll try to build on his 51/528/3 line now that he has a year of familiarity with Tyrod Taylor and offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

    (Updated 02/26/2016)
    04/27/16WRMarcus EasleyKneeQUESTIONABLEEasley is progressing in his rehabilitation from a broken knee and dislocated knee cap, which he sustained in Week 16 against the Cowboys, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "It's been nothing but uphill since the end of the season," Easley said Friday. "I'm getting around a lot better now and healing up real well. I'm getting better every day."

    Easley suffered the horrific injuries as he went to the ground while performing in the punt coverage unit. Previously, he relayed that his recovery timetable would be 7-to-9 months, potentially delaying his first game action of the 2016 season. In any case, he'll more than likely miss the Bills' offseason program.

    (Updated 02/19/2016)
    04/27/16DBStephon GilmoreShoulderPROBABLEGilmore (shoulder) has not been cleared to participate in practice, The Buffalo News reports.

    Gilmore missed the last four games of the 2015 season, but he's expected to be healthy for the start of 2016. He'll start at cornerback across from Ronald Darby, with the duo forming one of the league's better CB tandems.

    (Updated 04/18/2016)
    04/27/16WRMarquise GoodwinRibsPROBABLEGoodwin (ribs) could be replaced by sixth-round rookie Kolby Listenbee, The Buffalo News reports.

    Though he should be fully recovered from the rib injury that held him out for the majority of last season, Goodwin may miss part of training camp if he qualifies for the upcoming Summer Olympics. Even if he doesn't qualify for Rio, Goodwin will likely be on the roster bubble as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.

    (Updated 05/03/2016)
    04/27/16DLJerry HughesUpper bodyQUESTIONABLEHughes finished the 2015 season with 52 tackles, five sacks, four passes defensed, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. He played in all 16 games for the fourth straight season, while seeing action on 92.5 percent of the defensive snaps.

    Hughes picked up 67 points in standard IDP scoring after putting up 90 the previous season, and that's mostly due to the drop in sacks. If your league counts passes defensed, he closed that gap a bit. In truth, almost every member of the Bills' defensive line struggled with Rex Ryan's new system, and there's little reason Hughes can't get back to double-digit sacks in 2016 as his familiarity in a complex scheme grows. Hughes also took some dumb penalties in 2015, and it won't sit well with the coaching staff if he doesn't clean that up permanently.

    (Updated 01/13/2016)
    04/27/16LBTy PowellKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Bills placed defensive end Jarius Wynn and linebacker Ty Powell on injured reserve Tuesday. Both players recently suffered ACL injuries, which will sideline them for the 2015 season.
    04/27/16RBKarlos WilliamsKneePROBABLERookie fifth-round selection Jonathan Williams will join (Karlos) Williams and LeSean McCoy in the Buffalo backfield, Tyler Dunne of The Buffalo News reports.

    Also a fifth-round selection, Karlos Williams enjoyed an efficient rookie season, gaining 517 yards on just 93 carries (5.6 YPC) with nine total touchdowns (two receiving) in 11 games. He's well positioned to serve as LeSean McCoy's top backup again, but Jonathan Williams could also compete for touches. There's been no indication that Karlos is still bothered by the knee injury that held him out in Week 17 last season.
