Position Listing
Lowell Rose
News
The Chargers waived or released these players: running back Kerwynn Williams, offensive tackle Nick Becton, fullback Zach Boren, tight ends Ryan Otten and Jake Byrne, receivers Micah Hatfield and Brelan Chancellor, linebacker Adrian Hamilton, guard Darryl Johnson, cornerback Lowell Rose and punter Chase Tenpenny.
Jimmy Wilson
News
The Dolphins defense is missing two defensive backs for Week 13 against the Jets, as Dimitri Patterson (groin) and Jamar Taylor (hamstring) are unable to suit up for Sunday's game. The rest of the team's injured defenders were able to play through their issues, however, headlined by defensive back Chris Clemons (knee, hamstring), who was considered questionable for the game.

Defensive back Jimmy Wilson (abdomen), linebacker Koa Misi (knee) and defensive lineman Jared Odrick (knee) were all active as expect, as all three were considered probable for the game. 

Branden Albert
News
The Dolphins have officially ruled out running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) for their Sunday game against Kansas City. Also out are linebacker Koa Misi (ankle) and guard Shelley Smith (knee).

Listed as doubtful are defensive end Terrence Fede (knee), center Mike Pouncey (hip) and linebacker Jordan Tripp (chest).

Tight end Charles Clay (knee) and guard Billy Turner (foot) are considered questionable.

The probables are safeties Walt Aikens (hand) and Louis Delmas (calf), tackle Branden Albert (shoulder) and linebackers Jonathan Freeny (calif), Jelani Jenkins (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (thumb).

Nate Garner
News
The Dolphins don't have many options to replace center Mike Pouncey, who is out for start of the season because of hip surgery, reports ESPN. He is expected to miss the next three to four months, which includes all of training camp, the preseason and the start of the regular season. 

The report says the Dolphins have three options at this stage. They can go with undrafted second-year player Sam Brenner, who received second-team reps at center this offseason and filled in at guard last season for the suspended Richie Incognito. They can use versatile backup Nate Garner, who also played center last season in place of Pouncey for two games and could be the second in-house plan. The third option is to look for outside help via trade or free agency, which could be slim pickings at this stage of the offseason.

Whatever choice Miami makes, it's replacement plan won't be nearly as good as Pouncey. He is one of the top centers in the NFL and the drop off will be significant no matter who plays in Week 1.

Koa Misi
News
Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi, who missed the Week 2 loss at Buffalo with an ankle injury, is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs, reports the Miami Herald.

Orleans Darkwa
News
The Week 3 status of Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (ankle) is not yet known, and running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) already has been ruled out. That means Miami's running game could belong to undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Williams ran five times for 19 yards in the Week 2 loss at Buffalo, while Darkwa caught all three of his targets for 31 yards. Miami hosts the Chiefs on Sunday.

Jamar Taylor
News
The Dolphins enter Week 1 against the Patriots without much in the way of injury concerns, as four players from the defensive side of the ball were able to play through their issues Sunday.

Matt Moore
News
The Dolphins might have a new starting quarterback for their Week 4 showdown with the Raiders in London.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin was asked Monday following Miami's 34-15 loss Sunday against the Chiefs if Ryan Tannehill will start next week against Oakland, and Philbin didn't exactly respond with a vote of confidence for Tannehill.

"We’ll decide our game plan before we leave to play Oakland," Philbin said, per The Palm Beach Post.

Matt Moore is the Dolphins' backup quarterback.

The dispatched offensive players are quarterback Seth Lobato, linemen Tony Hills, David Arkin, Sam Brenner and Evan Finkenberg , wideouts Kevin Cone and Matt Hazel, running backs Marcus Thigpen and Daniel Thomas and tight end Evan Wilson .

Among the defensive players let go are linemen Isaako Aaitui, Garrison Smith, Tevin Mims and D'Aundre Reed, linebacker Andrew Wilson and defensive backs Jordan Kovacs and Kevin Fogg. Placekicker Jake Rogers has also been waived.

Cortland Finnegan
News
The battle between Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins and Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan is one of the top individual matchups of Sunday's Week 2 game between the two teams, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"The Bills’ top draft choice will be working against a wily veteran in Finnegan," according to the website. "The Miami corner is in his ninth season and has a physical edge to his game that can at times spill over into frustration and over aggression."

The matchup could lead to Watkins' first breakout line of his career. Finnegan ranked 109th out of 110 qualified cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' cumulative cornerback rating last season. However, he did post positive numbers in the same metric in the team's Week 1 win over the Patriots, which included tying for 10th overall in the league in pass coverage rating.

Gerald Rivers

Walt Aikens

The following players on the injury report were ruled active for the Dolphins in Week 3 against Kansas City: Walt Aikens (hand), Charles Clay (knee), Louis Delmas (calf), Jonathan Freeny (calf), Jelani Jenkins (shoulder) and Philip Wheeler (thumb). 
Derrick Shelby
News
The Dolphins defense is mostly in good shape for Sunday's matchup against the Bills in Week 2, but they will be missing one key piece. Linebacker Koa Misi is inactive as a result of a knee injury suffered last week, though his absence was expected as he was listed as doubtful on the injury report.

Other than Misi, the rest of the team enters the game healthy enough to play. Linebackers Philip Wheeler (thumb) and Chris McCain (illness), defensive linemen Randy Starks (toe) and Derrick Shelby (knee), and defensive back Walt Aikens (hand) were all considered probable and are in uniform for the game. 

Mike Wallace
News
Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace was unable to extend his scoring streak to three games in Week 3 against Kansas City.

Wallace also ran an end-zround for 12 yards in the first quarter, his only carry of the afternoon. He caught a 30-yard pass on a playaction play in the second quarter for his longest reception.
He had four catches for 60 yards in the first half, but finished with five catches for 74 yards on 12 targets in a 34-15 defeat.

Wallace has 211 receiving yards and two scores through three games. He will look to get back in the end zone against the Raiders in London in Week 4.

Dallas Thomas
News
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin named Dallas Thomas one of the team's most improved players, and he has a good chance to start at left guard, according to the team's website. A third-round pick in last year's draft, Thomas played only four offensive snaps last season.

Thomas worked with the first team during spring drills and is much further along than he was in 2013. He stayed in South Florida throughout the offseason to get better prepared.

"You’ve got to know your material, you’ve got to know what you’re doing on the field because stuff happens so fast," Thomas said. "You’ve got to be able to just react to it and not even think about what’s happening on the field."

Brandon Gibson
News
Dolphins receivers Jarvis Landry, Brandon Gibson and Rishard Matthews all failed to make much of an impact in a Week 3 loss at home to the Chiefs.

Landry outperformed Gibson was heavily targeted as the team's third receiver on the afternoon. He caught four of the seven passes thrown his way for 24 yards. Three of his four receptions came in the first half. Gibson was targeted four times but finished the day with only one grab for a gain of 4 yards.

Matthews caught a short pass for a gain of 13 yards late in the fourth quarter for his only catch and target of a 34-15 defeat.

He followed that up by gashing Kansas City's defense for a 24-yard run in the third quarter. Miller took 15 handoffs for 108 yards, averaging 7.2 yards per grab. He also caught four of his five targets for 24 yards in a 34-15 defeat.
