Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
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.

Knee - Questionable for start of season
Vinston Painter
Browns running back Luke Lundy had to leave Sunday's practice after sustaining a concussion, reports the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram.

Moreover, offensive tackle Vinston Painter suffered a neck injury, which also forced him to leave practice early.

Al Louis-Jean
Louis-Jean signed with the Dolphins on Monday, Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald reports.

Louis-Jean was most recently waived by the Redskins in May, but had impressed the Dolphins enough to sign him to a deal after working out for the team a week ago. The young cornerback boasts solid size and speed for the position, so he is worth a look for Miami. The team waived/injured cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu as a result of the signing.

Akil Blount
No Updates
A.J. Cruz
No Updates
Branden Albert
Dolphins offensive lineman Branden Albert (hamstring) is active Sunday against the Titans.

Albert had been limited in practice all week, but that won't prevent him from suiting up to occupy a vital role in Week 6.

Tony Lippett
Tony Lippett was the Big Ten receiver of the year last season, but the Dolphins, who drafted him in the fifth round, see him as a cornerback. 

Lippett is converting to the defensive backfield in OTAs. Early returns are good. He had three interceptions in Monday's practice.

"He doesn’t have a ton of position experience there in games, but he seems to be a guy that’s learned the system pretty well," coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. "Every rep that he gets is extremely valuable at this stage of his development. I caught a couple of them, I?was bouncing back and forth, and he went up and high-pointed one of the balls. He was in the right place at the right time."

Koa Misi
Misi restructured his contract with the Dolphins on Saturday.

The Dolphins restructured their deals with Misi and Ndamukong Suh, and released Greg Jennings, freeing up some cap room to work with this offseason. Misi tallied a career-high 78 tackles (59 solo) in 13 games last season but failed to record a sack.

Jason Jones
Jones has signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Jones' deal is reportedly worth more than $1.5 million, and although he's recovering from offseason knee surgery, the veteran will help Miami's options while Cameron Wake comes back from his Achilles tear. A starter in 31 of 32 games for the Lions the past two years, Jones posted 31 tackles and 4.5 sacks last season.

Xavien Howard
Howard (knee) was able to take part in a few team and one on one drills Monday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

The biggest weakness on defense for Miami is at cornerback. With a pass rush that is expected to be much improved this season they don't need their corners to be great, just ones that aren't beat immediately off the line of scrimmage. The team is hopeful that Howard can be one of those guys.

Knee - Probable for start of season
Jermon Bushrod
Bears offensive tackle Jermon Bushrod (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Already facing the possibility of playing without QB Jay Cutler and WR Alshon Jeffery -- both questionable with hamstring injuries -- for a second straight week, the Bears will now be missing their starting left tackle. That's never a good thing, but it's especially worrisome when Khalil Mack is on the other team. Mack normally moves all over the place, but Oakland may have him spend more time on the offense's left side to test out replacement LT Charles Leno.

Matt Darr
No Updates
Billy Turner
The Dolphins ruled running back LaMichael James, linebacker Jelani Jenkins, linebacker Koa Misi, linebacker Jonathan Freeny, linebacker Chris McCain, offensive lineman Nate Garner and offensive lineman Billy Turner inactive for Week 15 against New England.
Rashaan Melvin
Ravens defensive back Rashaan Melvin was let go by the Ravens on Tuesday.

The 2013 undrafted free agent surprisingly ended up making starts last season as the secondary was decimated by injuries. Melvin, however, made just one appearance this season. It's not a great sign for his NFL future that he was released by a team whose biggest weakness corresponds with his position.

Michael Thomas
Thomas finished the 2015 season with 85 tackles.

While the tackle numbers are solid, they came without any big plays as Thomas was held without a turnover or sack. The Dolphins could look to upgrade safety during the off-season.

Ulrick John
The Colts will have a very deep offensive line for OTAs. Currently, the team's roster features 10 players that have started in the NFL, per Colts.com

The Colts will have battle for starting spots at center and on the right side of the line. 

Khaled Holmes enters the offseason as the starting center, but he'll be pushed by Jonotthan Harrison, who started 10 games last season. 

At right guard, offseason acquisition Todd Herremans has the inside track, but he'll compete with Hugh Thornton, a veteran of 20 NFL starts. 

Gosder Cherilus, returning from knee and groin injuries that landed him on injured reserve last season, will start OTAs as the right tackle. Joe Reitz and Ulrick John will compete for the job. 

Kraig Urbik
Bills left guard Kraig Urbik took a pay cut of $1.5 million this year and $1.7 million next year, reports ESPN.com. Urbik, who is signed through 2016, played in every game last year, starting nine.
Andre Branch
Branch has agreed to a one-year contract with the Dolphins, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

A continuance of the Dolphins' defensive overhaul, the signing of Branch helps retool a unit already deprived of the services of Olivier Vernon and Derrick Shelby, as both have already signed elsewhere this offseason. Furthermore, Miami and DE Cameron Wake (Achilles) are still at odds over a potential contract extension, but Branch will at least form a rotation with Mario Williams and potentially Dion Jordan (suspension). In the event that Wake holds out or lands elsewhere come the start of the season, Branch figures to assume a sizable role and build upon his 2015 stat line of 24 tackles, including four sacks, and two forced fumbles across 13 games as a member of the Jaguars. However, should Wake return, Branch could struggle to gain fantasy relevance.

Isa Abdul-Quddus
Abdul-Quddus says he is open to moving to free safety next season, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Abdul-Quddus took over at strong safety midway through the season last season with the Lions and turned in the best season of his five-year career. After signing with the Dolphins earlier in the week, the 26-year-old made it known that he was open to switching to free safety. Reshad Jones is the current starter at strong safety in Miami and is also coming off the best season of his career. "I know he had a great year last year so I'm comfortable with something different. I'm just open to playing whatever", Abdul-Quddus said in an interview on Friday.

Kenyan Drake
Though 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.

Hamstring - Questionable for start of season
Damien Williams
Williams gained 13 yards and scored a touchdown on seven carries while also gaining 10 yards on his sole catch in Friday's 27-10 preseason victory over the Giants.

The 24-year-old's five-yard touchdown in the second quarter was the highlight of an otherwise forgettable performance. Williams gained only eight yards on his six other totes, and remains locked in a reserve running back spot battle that is expected to be waged for the duration of preseason.

DeVante Parker
Parker 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.

Hamstring - Probable for start of season
Cedric Reed
No Updates
Matt Moore
Moore (concussion) sat out of practice Sunday, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

Moore suffered a concussion during Friday's preseason matchup with the Cowboys and is currently going through the league's mandated protocol. He was held out of practice Sunday as expected, but still remains without a timetable for a return. Absences from concussions vary in length depending on the player, but we'll likely see his status updated again within the coming few days.

Head - Questionable for start of season
Jordan Williams
No Updates
Matt Hazel
The Dolphins listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Rishard Matthews, Walt Aikens, Dallas Thomas, Matt Hazel, LaMichael James, Deandre Coleman and Sam Brenner.
Farrington Huguenin
Zach Vigil
Vigil (undisclosed) was placed on Miami's PUP list Friday, Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports.

As a rookie, Vigil appeared in every game for the Dolphins last season. It's currently unclear why the 25-year-old has been sidelined from practice. Prior to his arrival on the PUP list, Miami had been prepping Vigil to function as one of team's top reserve linebackers for the 2016 season.

Undisclosed - PUP. Questionable for start of season
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
Ekpre-Olomu was waived/injured by the Dolphins on Monday, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Ekpre-Olomu has not been able to play an NFL snap since suffering an ACL in the 2014 Rose Bowl as part of the Oregon Ducks. Once an All-American cornerback at the college level, Ekpre-Olomu will have to prove he is healthy enough to play at a high level before he finds another NFL home, as the knee injury has been one that he just has not been able to shake yet.

Mario Williams
Williams and several other top defensive players won't play Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake were also given the game off as head coach Adam Gase doesn't believe that any member of this trio has anything to prove this early in preseason.

A.J. Hendy
No Updates
Deandre Coleman
The Dolphins listed the following players as inactive for Sunday’s game against the Jets: Rishard Matthews, Walt Aikens, Dallas Thomas, Matt Hazel, LaMichael James, Deandre Coleman and Sam Brenner.
Anthony Steen
The Cardinals have deemed the following players as inactive for Saturday's Wild Card game against the Panthers: Drew Stanton, Brittan Golden , Chris Clemons , Jonathan Cooper, Alameda Ta'amu, Anthony Steen , and Kareem Martin.

Cooper has missed the past two games for Arizona with a wrist injury.

The Cardinals are 5 1/2-point underdogs for Saturday's game.

Walt Aikens
Dolphins cornerback Walt Aikens was suspended for the season finale Sunday for missing a team meeting after he was involved in a domestic dispute at his Sunrise home, per WINZ-AM.

The report further claimed, per a source, that there was no physical violence with his girlfriend, but that his phone was smashed.

Chris Culliver
Culliver (knee) signed a 1-year deal worth up to $5M with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Culliver tore his ACL and MCL during a November practice with the Redskins last season, and was eventually released by the team in May. He recently visited with the Cardinals, but ultimately did not get a deal with the team. The Dolphins appear to be high on the South Carolina product given the contract signing. There is currently not definitive timetable for Culliver's return to the field.

Arian Foster
After rolling Foster out for just nine snaps in last Friday's preseason game against the Cowboys, coach Adam Gase is hoping that the Dolphins can "take a long look" at the veteran back Thursday against the Falcons, the Miami Herald reports.

Foster, who turns 30 Wednesday, is looking to overtake Jay Ajayi on the Dolphins' RB depth chart. A strong effort in the team's third preseason game Thursday could accelerate such an outcome, though we'd expect Foster and Ajayi to both see touches with the Dolphins' first-team offense in the contest. As Gase has pointed out, Foster's "resume speaks for itself," and with that in mind it's not hard to imagine that, at a minimum, the veteran back will secure a key role in what could emerge as some form of time-share arrangement in the Miami backfield. That scenario, of course, hinges on the oft-injured Foster remaining healthy.

Dallas Thomas
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Zac Dysert
Julius Warmsley
The Seahawks have signed 11 players to future contracts, the team announced Wednesday.

Running back Demitrius Bronson, wide receiver Douglas McNeil, tight end RaShaun Allen, tackle Justin Renfrow, guards Nate Isles and Drew Nowak, defensive ends Ryan Robinson and Julius Warmsley, defensive tackle Jimmy Staten, linebacker Mike Zimmer and safety Dion Bailey will look to compete for spots on the final 53-man roster in 2015.

Jordan Phillips
No Updates
Isaiah Pead
Pead gained 48 yards on four rushes and totaled 30 yards on his sole reception in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys.

Fighting for a backup role behind Arian Foster, the former Ram and Steeler made a strong case for himself for the second straight game. Pead ripped off an impressive 45-yard run off left tackle late in the third quarter, which was preceded by a 30-yard catch-and-run in the latter stages of the second period when Ryan Tannehill found him all alone in the right flat. Pead now has 98 yards on 14 rushes over his first two preseason games and appears to have the edge over fellow young veteran Daniel Thomas for a spot alongside Arian Foster and Jay Ajayi in the Dolphins backfield.

Ruben Carter
No Updates
Chris Jones
The Dolphins have claimed Jones off waivers from the Patriots, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Now healthy, Jones, who missed last season with a calf injury, will bolster the Dolphins' interior line depth. While starting 23 of 28 games for the Patriots between the 2013 and 2014 seasons, Jones tallied a total of 79 tackles and nine sacks.

Sam Young
With starting right tackle Austin Pasztor rupturing his hamstring Week 13, the Jaguars will replace him with rookie Josh Wells or veteran Sam Young, reports the Florida Times-Union. Wells filled in for Pasztor against the Giants, logging 41 snaps.

"Wells did a pretty good job when he stepped in," coach Gus Bradley told the paper. "The reason why we had him up [active] over Sam Young is because of his flexibility. He could play left tackle and right tackle. Sam does a good job at right tackle so we'll talk more about that, but it will be one of those two."

The Jaguars host the Texans on Sunday.

Jakeem Grant
No Updates
James-Michael Johnson
The Buccaneers waived-injured linebacker James-Michael Johnson on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reports. 

Johnson saw extensive action on special teams for the Buccaneers in Week 1, but he suffered an undisclosed injury that will prevent him playing for some time moving forward. The team has not yet announced who will be added to take Johnson's place.

Earl Mitchell
Mitchell missed practice Tuesday due to a calf injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

There is no word as of yet to the severity of the injury or to how long Mitchell may be out of action for. Mitchell is expected to be part of the defensive line rotation for Miami this season.

Thomas Duarte
The Dolphins selected Duarte in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 231st overall.

Duarte was a receiver at UCLA but moves to tight end due to a lack of NFL speed. A ceremonial move to tight end would do well for his fantasy potential, but not necessarily his odds of making the roster. If he does stick, though, he's worth monitoring to see if fantasy owners can more or less get a wideout with tight end classification.

Brandon Harris
Titans cornerback Brandon Harris has been placed on injured reserve with a left knee injury sustained last Tuesday, per The Tennessean.

The team has signed veteran center Fernando Velasco to take his place on the roster.

Harris participated in 11 games last season after playing in all 16 in 2013.

Shamiel Gary
The Bears announced several minor roster moves on Monday. The team signed safety Shamiel Gary and tight end Jacob Maxwell to their practice squad, according to the team's official website. The team also elevated cornerback Terrance Mitchell to 53-man roster from practice squad and waived linebacker Terrell Manning.

Leonte Carroo
Carroo plans to drop seven or eight pounds from his current weight of 217, The Miami Herald reports.

Despite gaining six pounds in the four months since the Combine, Carroo said he isn't carrying any "bad weight", perhaps suggesting that some of his additional mass is muscle. He posted mediocre numbers (including a 4.50 40 time) in all of the key Combine drills, but his showing looks a bit better if his weight is taken into account, as most wideout prospects his height (6-0) check in closer to 190-200 pounds. Though largely known as a deep threat at Rutgers, the 22-year-old Carroo also impressed on shorter routes, with strong YAC skills helping him produce 19.5 yards per reception and 29 touchdowns on 122 career catches (30 games). While the Dolphins seemingly got a steal in the third round, it's still unclear if Carroo will have a significant role out of the gate, as Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker figure to account for a large portion of the team's targets. Carroo may have a shot to take snaps away from No. 3 wideout Kenny Stills, who caught just 43 percent of his targets during his dud of a first season in Miami.

Neville Hewitt
Hewitt will make his first NFL start Sunday at home versus the Cowboys, reports the Dolphins web site.

The Dolphins have suffered several injuries to their linebacking corps which necessitates Hewitt starting.

Jamil Douglas
Dolphins rookie Jamil Douglas continues to gain first-team snaps at left guard in OTAs. 

Douglas is competing with Dallas Thomas for the starting job. Over the last few weeks, he's gone from occasional snaps to a 50/50 split of starting snaps. 

"I like the fact that when he’s been in there he doesn’t make a lot of mental mistakes,” coach Joe Philbin said, per the Palm Beach Post. “I think he’s grasped the system relatively well. I think his play speed’s been pretty good. He doesn’t seem to hesitate a lot and that’s a good sign for a young guy. ... I really like what I see."

Jelani Jenkins
Jenkins had 71 tackles in 13 games for the Dolphins this past season.

Jenkins won the starting role in training camp but failed to impress as the season rolled along. He didn't record a sack or turnover and overall was just an average linebacker. The Dolphins will likely look for an upgrade here before next year.

Ndamukong Suh
Suh (back) and several other top defensive players won't play Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Cameron Wake and Mario Williams were also given the game off as head coach Adam Gase doesn't believe that any member of this trio has anything to prove this early in preseason.

Chris McCain
McCain (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.

Jarvis Landry
Landry totaled 33 yards on four receptions in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys.

The Dolphins' No. 1 target was heavily involved during his time on the field, even though Ryan Tannehill went to Kenny Stills for his two touchdowns on the night. Landry, who saw a whopping 165 targets last season, figures to once again receive a substantial amount of looks in 2016 despite the change in offensive system.

Jordan Cameron
Cameron had one reception for five yards in the Dolphins loss to Dallas on Friday.

Cameron has had a rough training camp trying to learn the new offense. He dropped an easy touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill on Friday and while that drop is concerning, it happens. What should be encouraging for fantasy owners is that Tannehill was looking his way in the red zone.

Griff Whalen
Whalen has signed with the Dolphins.

Whalen arrives in Miami after finishing last season with 19 catches for 205 yards and one touchdown in 14 games played. Waived by the Colts in January, Whalen adds depth to the Dolphins' options at wide receiver and on special teams.

Alonso, regarding the possibility of taking snaps at tight end in 2016, said, "In a goal-line situation, I'm ready to jump into the field. I have some specific plays at hand, but I won't reveal them," ESPN.com reports.

Alonso played some tight end in high school, and although he may be fully capable of playing on the offensive side of the ball, Miami resigned Jordan Cameron, added MarQueis Gray and retained Dion Sims this offseason. However, Cameron and Sims both disappointed in 2015, and Gray is coming off a season spent largely on IR with a broken forearm. The most significant aspect of Alonso's remarks is how he mentioned there are already plays designed for him, but the Dolphins may simply be constructing an insurance policy should their top-3 tight ends suffer injuries or prove ineffective yet again.

Andrew Franks
Franks was 13-16 on field goal attempts this season and 33-36 on point after tries.

Only 16 field goal attempts is a bit low but still an 81.3 success rate is solid. The Dolphins could always look to upgrade the position in training camp and will likely bring in some competition for Franks but he will still go into 2016 as the favorite to win the job.

Mike Hull
Hull was promoted from the Dolphins' practice squad on Saturday.

With Spencer Paysinger doubtful to play Sunday, Hull will offer some extra linebacker depth. To make room for Hull the Dolphins waived A.J. Francis.

Mike Pouncey
After suffering a knee injury in Saturday's preseason game, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey didn't express much concern, a feeling that would prove to be valid, as an MRI came back negative and the lineman was back at practice Monday, per the Miami Herald.

Pouncey said that he expects to be ready for the season opener. He recently signed an extension worth more than $40 million. 

Dion Jordan
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.

Undisclosed - NFI. Questionable for start of season
Ja'Wuan James
The Dolphins have labeled linebacker Jonathan Freeny (hamstring) and cornerback Jamar Taylor (shoulder) out for Sunday's pivotal game against Baltimore. Guard Nate Garner (illness), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) and linebacker Chris McCain (ankle) were deemed doubtful for Week 14.

Tight end Charles Clay (hamstring, knee) was the only player on the report deemed questionable. He was a limited participant all week leading up to Sunday.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Wide receiver Brian Hartline (knee), tackle Ja'Wuan James (neck), linebacker Jelani Jenkins (shoulder), center Samson Satele (ribs), wide receiver Mike Wallace (chest) and safety Jimmy Wilson (hamstring).

Bobby McCain
McCain (undisclosed) has been activated from the PUP list and is back to full strength, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

McCain started training camp on the PUP list, as he was dealing with some sort of cramping. As expected, the injury was nothing serious and he's back on the practice field Sunday without restrictions. McCain currently ranks as just a depth option in the defensive backfield for the Dolphins after finishing his rookie campaign with 28 tackles over 16 games.

Spencer Paysinger
Paysinger (neck) returned to game action Sunday with two tackles in a loss to the Jets.

Paysinger had missed two games due to the injury but was deemed healthy enough to return Sunday. After getting demolished by the Jets perhaps he wishes he was held out another week.

Terrence Fede
The Dolphins have listed Cortland Finnegan, LaMichael James, Chris McCain, Daryn Colledge, Anthony Johnson, Billy Turner and Terrence Fede as inactive Week 11 against the Bills.

Finnegan had been ruled out prior to the contest. Colledge came into the game listed as doubtful. The other five players are healthy scratches. 

Cameron Wake
Wake (achilles) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's preseason tilt with Atlanta, James Walker of ESPN reports.

Miami feels no logic behind rushing Wake into playing meaningless games. While it would be nice for the former pro bowler to get some game reps, the eight-year veteran should be just fine acclimating to the speed of the game when the regular season rolls along. If Wake does play Thursday, it is safe to expect that he has fully recovered from the achilles injury that he suffered last season.

Brandon Doughty
The Dolphins selected Doughty in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 223rd overall.

Doughty is old for a rookie and showed some problems with decision making earlier in his career, but he was extremely productive for the last two. After falling just short of 10,000 yards and 100 passing touchdowns over the last two years, Doughty will hope his video game numbers translate to NFL success.

Kenny Stills
Stills totaled 71 yards and two touchdowns on his three catches in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys.

Each of the receiver's three catches were noteworthy. Stills hauled in a perfectly-thrown pass approximately 50 yards downfield from Ryan Tannehill and turned upfield for additional yardage before running out of bounds. The 24-year-old also brought in a tough touchdown catch in traffic from 13 yards out in the second period and added a nifty three-yard grab after running a wheel route out of the slot for his second score later in the quarter.

Jay Ajayi
Ajayi recorded six carries for 19 yards and couldn't gather in his only target during Friday's preseason loss at Dallas.

Ajayi handled the first, third, and fourth possessions for the Dolphins, while his competition for the top RB role (Arian Foster) took the second. Neither player particularly impressed, as Foster's two carries for minus-five yards fell far short of Ajayi's meager production. Perhaps head coach Adam Gase tipped his hand by utilizing Ajayi first, but the battle remains undecided with two preseason games to go.

Dominique Jones
The Broncos have listed S T.J. Ward, RB Juwan Thompson, LB Brandon Marshall , OL Paul Cornick, OL Michael Schofield, TE Dominique Jones and DT Mitch Unrein as inactive Week 17 against the Raiders. 

Marshall was the only player ruled out prior to Sunday. Both Cornick and Ward were listed as questionable. Cornick is dealing with a toe injury. Ward has a neck issue. Thompson was actually listed as probable, but will not play. He has both hip and knee injuries. Unrein was also listed as probable. He's dealing with an illness. The other two players listed are healthy scratches. 

Byron Maxwell
Maxwell (groin) returned to practice Monday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Maxwell was dealing with a slight groin injury and there was really no reason to push it on a wet surface versus the Giants. The Dolphins biggest weakness on defense may very be the cornerback position and they will do all they can to make sure that Maxwell is ready to play Week 1 of the regular season.

Chimdi Chekwa
Chekwa (thigh) returned to practice on Tuesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Chekwa has yet to appear in a preseason game as he continues to nurse a lingering thigh injury. The sooner the cornerback can return to full speed the better, as he was pushing for a starting spot over Tony Lippett before he went down with the injury. Chekwa's status for Thursday's preseason tilt with the Falcons is still unknown.

Reshad Jones
Jones returned to practice Wednesday.

After skipping the first day of the Dolphins' mandatory minicamp Tuesday, with said absence accompanied by reports that Jones is looking to redo his contract, the safety rejoined his teammates Wednesday. In any case, Jones relayed to the Miami Herald that his brief holdout is behind him, while adding that he'll report for the start of training camp. He'll thus reprise his role as the Dolphins' starting strong safety this coming season, on the heels of recording 135 tackles and five picks in 2015.

Dion Sims
Sims had four receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown as Miami wrecked Tennessee 38-10 Sunday.

Sims didn't out target starting tight end Jordan Cameron (8-4), but he did have more receptions, yardage, and the same number of scores. All in all it was just good to see Sims back on the field after that scary looking concussion in England.

Tyler Gray
No Updates
Ryan Tannehill
Tannehill completed 12 of 20 passes for 162 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in Friday's 41-14 preseason loss to the Cowboys. He also gained 16 yards on two rushes.

The fifth-year pro received his first extended stint of game action in new head coach Adam Gase's offense and didn't disappoint, hooking up with Kenny Stills for a pair of second-quarter scores. Tannehill threaded the needle in traffic for his first touchdown and then hit Stills perfectly in stride on a nifty three-yard wheel route out of the slot on third down for the second successful connection. He also had an impressive 55-yard hook-up with Stills while rolling to his right, as well as a 30-yard completion to Isaiah Pead. The early returns on Tannehill's comfort level and proficiency in yet another new offensive system were certainly favorable, and provides him plenty of momentum heading into the Dolphins' dress rehearsal game versus the Falcons next Thursday.

Daniel Thomas
Thomas rushed for 30 yards on seven carries as the Dolphins were crushed by Dallas 41-14 on Friday.

Thomas is battling for a roster spot with several other backs on the Miami roster. Arian Foster, Jay Ajayi, and Kenyan Drake are guaranteed spots which would seem to leave either Thomas or Isaiah Pead fighting for one spot should Miami only keep four running backs after the final cut.

John Denney
Dolphins tight end Charles Clay is active Week 11 against the Bills.

Clay came into the game listed as questionable due to a knee injury. Clay was a limited participant in practice Wednesday. The team will also have John Denney, Kelvin Sheppard and Dion Sims available for the contest. All three players were also listed as questionable going into the game. 

Jordan Lucas
Lucas left practice early Friday due to a leg injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

There was no immediate word as to the severity of the injury or to how long Lucas would be out of camp. The sixth-round pick has a chance to make an impact this season if he can impress the coaching staff in camp as the Dolphins are thin at corner.
