Position Listing
Lowell Rose
News
The Dolphins have announced a pair of roster moves on Saturday, per the team's official website. The team signed defensive back Lowell Rose from the practice squad and promoted him to the active roster. In order to clear a spot for Rose, Miami has waived defensive tackle DeAndre Coleman.
Jimmy Wilson
News
Dolphins cornerback Jimmy Wilson was sidelined from his third straight practice Thursday, meaning he will unlikely play Sunday at Chicago, per the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Wilson has been dealing with a hamstring injury that had already knocked him out of the first two sessions this week.

Injury
Hamstring - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 at Jacksonville
Branden Albert
News
The Dolphins are in fine shape for their Week 7 game at Chicago. Nearly all the players on their Friday injury report are probable.

The exceptions are wide receiver Brandon Gibson (hamstring), who is doubtful, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan (neck) and guard Shelley Smith (knee), who are questionable.

The offensive probables are tackle Branden Albert (shoulder), tight end Charles Clay (knee), running back Lamar Miller (foot), center Samson Satele (fibula) and wideout Mike Wallace (foot).

The defensive probables are linebackers Jelani Jenkins (abdomen), Koa Misi (ankle) and Philip Wheeler (shoulder) and tackles Anthony Johnson (shoulder) and Randy Starks (back).

Damian Williams
News
The Dolphins announced several roster moves on Monday.

The team signed wide receiver Damian Williams and added him to the 53-man roster. To make room for the addition, the team waived running back Orleans Darkwa. The team also lifted the exemption for safety Reshad Jones, who was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

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
The Dolphins are in fine shape for their Week 7 game at Chicago. Nearly all the players on their Friday injury report are probable.

The exceptions are wide receiver Brandon Gibson (hamstring), who is doubtful, and cornerback Cortland Finnegan (neck) and guard Shelley Smith (knee), who are questionable.

The offensive probables are tackle Branden Albert (shoulder), tight end Charles Clay (knee), running back Lamar Miller (foot), center Samson Satele (fibula) and wideout Mike Wallace (foot).

The defensive probables are linebackers Jelani Jenkins (abdomen), Koa Misi (ankle) and Philip Wheeler (shoulder) and tackles Anthony Johnson (shoulder) and Randy Starks (back).

Brandon Fields
News
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is not hiding his disappointment with punter Brandon Fields, whose 43.3 gross average on punts ranks 31st out of 32 punters in the NFL, according to The Miami Herald. His net average is 31.8, which is the worst in the NFL.

"Early on we got the punt blocked in Buffalo," Philbin said. "He just hasn’t looked as comfortable quite yet back there, as he has in the two years that I’ve been here, the previous two years. I’m confident he’ll work his way through it and he’ll get back to being the outstanding punter that we all know.

"For his standards, it’s not quite what we’re used to. I think he would acknowledge that, but I’m very, very confident that he’ll get back to that soon."

Caleb Sturgis
News
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said he called out kicker Caleb Sturgis during a team meeting for missing a pair of field goals during a win Week 7 at Chicago, according to The Miami Herald.

"We were in the team meeting today and we said we’ve got to make those field goals," Philbin said. "We kind of went through that sequence where we took a sack and knocked ourselves back, and made the field goal more difficult. That being said, I said to him right there in the whole team meeting, we’ve got to make those field goals. He knows that and I suspect that he will work at it and he’ll get better at it."

Sturgis is connecting on 78.6 percent of his field goals (11 of 14) after converting at a 76.5 percent rate (26 of 34) as a rookie in 2013.

Lamar Miller
News
Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both love Dolphins running back Lamar Miller at Jacksonville this week, and it makes sense. It's the Jaguars, after all. They lose all the time, often by a lopsided score, which gives opposing running backs plenty of chances to carry the ball in the second half.

Of course, the same logic applied for the Browns last week, and you see what happened with Ben Tate. He had only 36 yards on 16 carries. Granted, the Jaguars ended up winning that game, so it didn't follow the usual script. But looking back further, the Titans' Bishop Sankey had 61 yards on 18 carries in Week 6, the Steelers' Le'Veon Bell had 82 yards on 15 carries in Week 5, and the Chargers' Branden Oliver and Donald Brown combined for 42 yards on 19 carries in Week 4. Some of those performances were OK, but you have to go back to Week 2, when the Redskins' Alfred Morris ran for 85 yards and two touchdowns, to find a time when a running back really lit it up against the Jaguars. Not surprisingly, they rank a respectable 15th against the run, allowing 110.3 yards per game and just 3.8 yards per carry.

Of course, in standard 12-team leagues, you've been content with 60 yards and a touchdown from Miller, and he's probably still good for that. I just wouldn't expect more based on the matchup.

Kamal Johnson
Injury
Charles Clay
News
Dolphins tight end Charles Clay was limited in practice Thursday due to a knee injury.

Clay has been dealing with a knee issue all season, which may have limited his effectiveness early in the year. He was able to score his first touchdown last week, but isn't fully over his injury just yet. Clay has been able to play through the issue all season, so he'll likely put in more work at practice Friday. 

Injury
Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 8 at Jacksonville

Injury
Mike Pouncey
News
The Miami-Dade Office of the State Attorney has decided Dolphins offensive lineman Mike Pouncey and Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey will not be charged in connection with an altercation at their birthday party inside Cameo Nightclub this summer, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

Miami Beach police investigated claims made by a South Florida man that alleges the brothers assaulted him during the party. Miami Beach police turned over all the information it gathered during the investigation to the state attorney's office, which decided there wasn't enough evidence to file charges.

"This confirms that the previous claim that the brothers were involved was false and fabricated by individuals seeking notoriety and monetary gain," said Jeff Ostrow, personal counsel to the Pounceys.

The Pounceys are still facing a civil lawsuit from the alleged victims.

Daryn Colledge

Reshad Jones
News
A shakeup in the Dolphins secondary has landed Reshad Jones back as starting safety and Jimmy Wilson returning to the slot corner spot he played last year.

Jones worked with the first team Wednesday after serving with the backups earlier in the week, according to the Miami Herald. He had been suspended four games for violating the league drug policy. He might have taken longer to get back to his familiar role had usual slot corner Cortland Finnegan not missed practice with a neck injury

Wilson, meanwhile, feels fine in the slot. "I became real comfortable last year," Wilson said. "I played well. I feel like I was one of the best slot corners in the league last year. And it's not like I haven't been covering anyone one-on-one. I still do one-on-one every single day and all through camp."

Injury
Teeth - Full practice. Probable for Week 8 at Jacksonville
Dion Sims

The Dolphins will travel to Chicago to face the Bears in Week 7.

Ryan Tannehill
News
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill is still widely available (owned in just 68 percent of CBSSports.com leagues) for Week 8 at Jacksonville. That's surprising considering his production over his past three games. Aided in part by an increased freedom to run the ball, Tannehill has averaged 24.0 Fantasy points per game during that stretch. For the season, Philip Rivers is averaging 25.0 Fantasy points per game.

Of course, Tannehill has benefited from a run of 30 or more yards the past two weeks, and that probably shouldn't be the expectation for him every week. But with Lamar Miller the only running game the Dolphins have, their quarterback has become more of a focal point on offense, throwing for two scores in four of six games this season.

For all their shortcomings offensively, the Jaguars have been pretty tough on defense the past three weeks, but they still rank only 30th against the pass, allowing 280.1 yards per game. Understandably, then, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard both love Tannehill as a sleeper this week, ranking him 11th among quarterbacks, ahead of notables Matthew Stafford, Cam Newton and Nick Foles.

Arthur Lynch
News
The Dolphins waived receivers Armon Binns and Ryan Spadola, tight end Brett Brackett, cornerback Steven Clarke, defensive end Rakim Cox, defensive tackle Cory Grissom and center Tyler Larsen. Miami also put defensive tackle A.J. Francis, running back Mike Gillislee and tight end Arthur Lynch on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
Injury
Daniel Thomas
News
With Knowshon Moreno out for the season, Dolphins running back Daniel Thomas worked behind Lamar Miller in a Week 7 victory over the Bears at Soldier Field. Thomas racked up 50 yards of total offense, rushing for 25 yards on seven attempts and catching all three of his targets for 25 yards in a 27-14 victory.

Miami will face Jacksonville in Week 8.

Knowshon Moreno
News
The Dolphins placed running back Knowshon Moreno on season-ending injured reserve because of a torn ACL, the club announced Tuesday.

After leaving the Broncos for a one-year deal in Miami, Moreno struggled to make an impact and with injuries, also suffering a elbow issues as well. He played in only three games and in his final two rushed for only 14 yards on seven carries.

Lamar Miller will continue to be the Dolphins' primary back -- he leads Miami with 330 rushing yards -- with Daniel Thomas and Damien Williams also sharing carries.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season

The defensive probables are defensive backs Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Don Jones (elbow/abdomen) and Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), linebacker Koa Misi (triceps) and tackles Jared Odrick (wrist) and Paul Soliai (ankle).
