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

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 - Missed Week 7 at Chicago
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).

Lamar Miller
News
Dolphins running back Lamar Miller found the end zone for the third straight game in Week 7 against the Bears, as he continues to operate as the top option in the running game.

Sunday's was probably Miller's least impressive game so far, as he rushed for a season-low 3.4 yards per carry. Still, he ended up with 83 all-purpose yards and a touchdown, and there was nearly even more for his Fantasy owners to cheer about, as he had a touchdown wiped out by a holding penalty.

The Dolphins' revamped offensive line has made life much easier for Miller, and he has become a reliable Fantasy option as a result. With few contenders for playing time, there is little reason to think he will be unable to keep this kind of production up. Consider Miller a strong Fantasy option in all formats for Week 8 against the Jaguars.

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."

Dion Sims

Dolphins tight ends Charles Clay and Dion Sims weren't much of a factor in a Week 6 defeat to the Packers at home on Sunday.

Clay had three catches in the second quarter, including a pair of 14-yard receptions. He was targeted twice and was held without a catch after halftime. Clay caught three of five passes thrown his way for 35 yards. Sims caught 1 of 2 targets for 5 yards in a 27-24 defeat.

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