Albert: Olivier Vernon 'real, real good'
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Dolphins defensive end Olivier Vernon is considered a player on the rise, reports ESPN.

Actually, per the report, he has been rishing for two years now after he led the Dolphins with 11.5 sacks in 2013. Now, Vernon is out to prove last season was not a fluke.

He's had another strong offseason, and he's impressed Pro Bowl left tackle Branden Albert.

"He's real, real good," Albert said.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins' pass-rushing tandem of defensive end Olivier Vernon and linebacker Cameron Wake failed to make much of an impact in Week 16 against the Bills. Neither player managed to pick up a sack in the 19-0 loss; Vernon had five tackles, while Wake had just four.

Heading into the final game of the season, Vernon has 11 1/2 sacks, while Wake has 8 1/2, the second-lowest total of his career.

Defensive players dominate Dolphins injury report
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins have placed eight players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) has been deemed more serious than probable for the Sunday game against Miami. He is questionable. All the probables play defense.

They are secondary mates Reshad Jones (groin), Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Nolan Carroll (knee) and Brent Grimes (groin) and defensive linemen Paul Soliai (ankle) and Olivier Vernon (ankle).
