Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
News
Gray played on just one of 59 offensive snaps during the Dolphins' season finale against the Patriots.

Despite possessing status as Miami's No. 2 tight end behind Dion Sims, Gray was almost exclusively contained to special teams work on Sunday. This is nothing new as the converted college quarterback has only been involved in the passing attack in games this season when both Sims and Jordan Cameron (concussion) sat out (forcing Gray to start). With Cameron an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, there's a chance Gray will maintain his current slotting on the depth chart in 2017, but his role in the offense is unlikely to change considering the Dolphins' indifference towards featuring tight ends.

Branden Albert
News
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.

Jesse Davis
No Updates
Tony Lippett
News
Lippett (concussion) was not on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday.

Lippett suffered a potential concussion during Sunday's game against the Ravens, but he appears to have cleared the league's protocol and figures to be available for Week 14 versus the Cardinals.

Koa Misi
News
Misi (neck) has been placed on injured reserve, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Misi suffered a setback in practice leading up to Week 5 and was almost immediately ruled out for Sunday's game. Unfortunately, his injury appears to be severe in nature, and potentially career-threatening. Per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Misi may need spinal fusion surgery down the road, similar to the procedure Peyton Manning required. However, he'll first experiment if rehab alone can do the job, and thus remains without any sort of timeline to return.

Injury
Neck - Injured Reserve
Xavien Howard
News
Howard (knee) will return from a lengthy absence in Week 15 against the Jets, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Howard had already amassed 28 tackles throughout the first four weeks of the season before going down with a knee injury, so his return should be a boost for the Dolphins' secondary unit.

Jermon Bushrod
News
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
T.J. Yates
News
Yates is signing with the Dolphins, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Yates will join the Dolphins to provide the team with quarterback depth in the wake of the knee injury starting signal-caller Ryan Tannehill suffered in Week 14. It's not clear how long Tannehill will be out, but Yates will serve as the Dolphins' backup quarterback behind Matt Moore for as long as Tannehill is sidelined.

Trevor Reilly
News
Reilly was signed to the Dolphins' active roster on Monday.

Reilly has spent the season on the Patriots' practice squad since being cut by the Jets in early September. His major impact will come on special teams, though he could see some time on defense if injuries force him into the rotation.

Michael Thomas
News
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.

Kraig Urbik
News
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
News
Branch ended the 2016 season with 49 tackles, 5.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Branch provided a better pass rush than expected this season. He was certainly helped by the presence of Ndamukong Suh and Cameron Wake but still took advantage of a situation that other players did not. He is a restricted free agent in March and could find a better payday for a team other than Miami.

Isa Abdul-Quddus
News
Abdul-Quddus (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Abdul-Quddus suffered the shoulder injury in the Week 16 win over the Bills and was spotted in a sling in the locker room afterward, so the Dolphins quickly determined he wouldn't be available for the regular-season finale or the playoffs. After Reshad Jones (shoulder) previously landed on IR as well, the Dolphins will now be without both of their starting safeties going forward. Abdul Quddus, who finishes the season with 77 tackles, two interceptions and one sack in 15 games, will be replaced on the 53-man roster by safety A.J. Hendy, who was signed from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Kenyan Drake
News
Drake carried four times for 10 yards during the Dolphins' season finale Sunday versus the Patriots.

Despite being listed as the No. 3 running back on the depth chart, Drake has out-carried No. 2 runner Damien Williams in each of the past three games to close the season. Williams has still remained involved in the offense though, so it isn't clear the rookie is being afforded a chance to claim direct backup duties behind workhorse Jay Ajayi. Nonetheless, both reserve tailbacks merely project as touchdown-reliant fantasy options for this Sunday's playoff game against Pittsburgh.

Damien Williams
News
Williams rushed twice for five yards and caught three of four targets for 23 yards during the Dolphins' season finale Sunday versus the Patriots.

Despite checking in as the No. 2 running back on the Dolphins' depth chart, Williams saw less carries than No. 3 option Kenyan Drake in each of the season's last three games. While it isn't clear if Drake is in line to take over Williams' spot, the gap between the two certainly appears to be shrinking. No matter, both players represent risky fantasy options for Sunday's postseason matchup with the Steelers.

Jake Brendel
News
Brendel was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday.

The Dolphins waived cornerback Chris Culliver in a corresponding roster move. Brendel will presumably provide depth at center for the team.

DeVante Parker
News
Parker secured four of six targets for 55 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

Parker was modestly involved in the blowout defeat, but fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills outpace him in both receptions and yardage. However, the second-year receiver did log a team-high 37-yard reception, and checked in second overall in targets. Although he clearly has plenty of room for improvement, Parker did turn in a much better sophomore campaign, tallying new career highs in receptions (56), yards (744) and touchdowns (four) over just one more game than he played in 2015.

Matt Moore
News
Moore completed 29 of 36 passes for 289 yards with a touchdown and interception in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers. He also gained two yards on one rush and lost two fumbles.

The final numbers look more than adequate from a fantasy perspective, but three untimely mistakes ultimately defined Moore's afternoon and sealed the Dolphins' fate. Moore lost the handle on a late second-quarter sack by James Harrison deep in Steelers territory, and then repeated the dubious feat on the opening possession of the third quarter when he was separated from the ball by Mike Mitchell at the Steelers' 42. The veteran signal-caller then failed to see Ryan Shazier on a pass over the middle for Jarvis Landry on the next possession, leading to an interception and return by the former to Dolphins' 25-yard line. Moore otherwise hung tough on a day when he was brought down five times overall and hit on many other occasions, including one instance when he had to leave the game for one play after a hard hit by Bud Dupree. Although he ultimately couldn't get his team past the opening postseason game, Moore once again validated his reputation as one of the NFL's most capable backups with his performance over the last three weeks of the regular season and Sunday's contest.

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu
News
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.

Injury
Knee - Injured Reserve
Mario Williams
News
Williams (ankle) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday.

Williams has been dealing with an ankle injury for weeks, playing through the injury often before sitting out Week 17. The time off likely gave the struggling veteran time to heal. Fully healthy in time for the playoffs, he'll look to play better than he did in the regular season, where he registered just 13 tackles and 1.5 sacks.

A.J. Hendy
No Updates
Storm Johnson
News
Johnson has signed a futures contract with the Dolphins, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Johnson appeared in six games with the Jaguars during his rookie season in 2014, but he's bounced around since then without landing on an active roster. He'll have an opportunity throughout the upcoming offseason to prove himself in Miami.

Anthony Steen
News
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
News
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.

Julius Warmsley
News
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
Terry Poole
News
The Seahawks have six of their eight draft picks under contract.

Picks that have signed are:

Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.

The only picks yet to sign with the team are second-round defensive end Frank Clark and third-round receiver Tyler Lockett.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Donald Butler
News
Butler would start Thursday if Koa Misi (neck) can't play, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Butler is being prepared to play as Misi looks to be a game time decision. He has only been with the team for a little over two weeks but the team has been anxious to see what he can do with an expanded role and they just might get to see it Thursday.

Brandon Watts
News
Watts recorded seven tackles in the Vikings' final preseason game.

Watts sat out the team's first two preseason contests with an undisclosed injury and only saw limited action in the third game, not recording any tackles. It remains to be seen if he'll make the 53-man roster, if he does it'll likely be due to special teams play rather than for his linebacker play, since he's played with the third team defense.

Nick Williams
News
WIlliams recorded two tackles (one solo) against the Chargers in Week 1.

Williams hasn't had much success in his career, but, if Week 1 is any indication, 2016 could be his best. He had just nine tackles since being drafted in 2013, all of which came last season. He's one of the primary backups at defensive end in Kansas City and will likely continue to see a mild number of snaps each week.

Sam Young
News
Young was signed by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Young signs on after Miami parted ways with linemen Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas earlier in the day. The Dolphins line allowed six sacks in Sunday's loss to the Titans and while Young is expected to start anytime soon, he could be thrust into a starting opportunity if injuries emerge.

Jakeem Grant
News
The Dolphins are designing plays to get Grant more involved in the offense, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen believes Grant is a big play waiting to happen and wants to get him more involved in the offense. Grant may have a few more targets coming his way but Jarvis Landry is still the number one WR in this offense so this may be more coach speak than anything else to give the Chargers something else to worry about this week.

Bacarri Rambo
News
Rambo was signed by the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Rambo enters his fourth season in the league after a 2015 campaign with the Bills in which he appeared in 15 games and racked up 58 tackles (44 solo), one sack, one interception, six passes defensed, and two forced fumbles. He figures to serve as Walt Aikens' backup at strong safety.

Earl Mitchell
News
Mitchell (calf) was activated from injured reserve Thursday, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

As expected, Mitchell returned to the active roster after being placed on the IR in Week 1 of the season. The team has yet to comment on how much, if any, action the defensive tackle will see this Sunday against the Chargers. His calf injury will be something to keep an eye on if he does receive some defensive reps, as he figures to serve as the primary backup behind starter Jordan Phillips.

Thomas Duarte
News
Duarte (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Patriots, the team's official site reports.

Duarte will join fellow backup tight end Dominique Jones on the sideline, while Dion Sims and MarQueis Gray soak up the reps at the position against New England.

Da'Ron Brown
News
The Chiefs have signed six of their draft picks on Monday including: Mitch Morse, Ramik Wilson, D.J. Alexander, James O'Shaughnessy, Rakeem Nunez-Roches and Da'Ron Brown, the team announced.

Morse, a center out of Missouri, was selected in the second round by the Kansas City after starting 39 out of 52 games in college.

Leonte Carroo
News
Carroo (coach's decision) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Carroo will be held to the sidelines by coach Adam Gase for the third consecutive game as he continues to struggle with earning a role in the Dolphins' offense. Jakeem Grant and Rashawn Scott will be active instead as they serve as depth options at wide receiver.

Neville Hewitt
News
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
News
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
News
Jenkins (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Jenkins will return to game action in the Dolphins' wild-card matchup after missing back-to-back tilts due to a knee issue. He's slated to start at outside linebacker per usual.

Ndamukong Suh
News
Suh (undisclosed) has pulled out of the Pro Bowl due to a minor procedure he has underwent, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

There is no word yet as to what the exact nature of the procedure was but it is not viewed to be a serious issue or one that will impact him for training camp.

Injury
Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jarvis Landry
News
Landry secured 11 of 14 targets for 102 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

In what was an otherwise dismal afternoon, Landry stepped up with a remarkable performance and served as Matt Moore's most trusted target on the afternoon. The third-year receiver made catches all over the short and intermediate passing windows, and was typically proficient tacking on yards after receptions as well. Although he saw a slight reduction in targets overall during his first season in new head coach Adam Gase's offense, Landry still posted the second-best reception (94) and yardage totals (1,136) of his career.

Lamin Barrow
News
Barrow (foot) was released from IR on Monday.

Barrow was waived with an injury designation in the preseason and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. He could latch on with a team in need of special teams help or depth at linebacker.

Jordan Cameron
News
Cameron (concussion) has considered retirement but wants to play again som, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Cameron was placed on injured reserve over the weekend in the wake of his continued absence since a Week 3 concussion, which marked his fourth in four years. Although he wants to continue his career going forward, Cameron's history of concussions could impact the level of interest he garners in free agency this upcoming offseason.

Injury
Concussion - Injured Reserve
Kiko Alonso
News
The Dolphins will consider moving Alonso to the weakside linebacker position, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Miami considered making the move in December but thought it would be to much of a gamble to ask Alonso to switch positions without any advanced warning or practice. The Dolphins don't have any issues with the play of Alonso in the middle but believe with their personnel it could make the team better should he switch to the outside. This plan could change of course should the Dolphins acquire a weakside linebacker via free agency or the draft this year.

Andrew Franks
News
Franks finished the 2016 season 16-21 on his field goal attempts.

That comes out to a 76.2% success rate which is well below the norm in today's NFL. Franks has a big leg but only attempted two FG over 50-yards this season which could lead you to wonder if the coaching staff just doesn't trust him. Franks was 41-42 on extra point attempts but that won't be enough to solidify his job for next season.

Mike Hull
News
Hull will start Sunday versus Arizona, Alain Poupart of Dolphins.com reports.

Hull will take over for the injured Kiko Alonso. He could be in for a busy day as the Cardinals are expected to feature David Johnson in this game.

Mike Pouncey
News
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. 

Injury
Hip - Injured Reserve
Senorise Perry
News
Perry has signed a futures contract with the Dolphins, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Perry hasn't appeared in an NFL regular season game since his rookie season in 2014 with the Bears, but he'll have an opportunity to compete for a roster spot in Miami throughout the upcoming offseason.

Dion Jordan
News
Jordan (knee) and the Dolphins are expected to part ways, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Jordan didn't play this season due to multiple suspensions (PED/drugs) and two knee surgeries. The former third overall pick has been a bust with Miami and is expected to be cut.

Injury
Knee - Out for the start of training camp
Ja'Wuan James
News
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
News
McCain (knee/hand) is active for Saturday's matchup with Buffalo.

McCain was able to practice in full during the week and likely won't be limited Saturday. He's expected start opposite Tony Lippett once again.

Spencer Paysinger
News
Paysinger (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with New England.

Paysinger was held out of practice early in the week but was able to work his way up to a full participation in Friday's practice and was ultimately expected to play.

Terrence Fede
News
Fede is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Bills.

Fede wasn't listed on the injury report and is likely a coach's decision inactive. As a depth corner his absence won't impact the Dolphins's secondary greatly.

Cameron Wake
News
Wake may have been the Dolphins best defender this season with 11.5 sacks, five forced fumbles, and an interception.

Wake had a terrific season, especially when you consider he was coming off the Achilles injury that prematurely ended his 2015 campaign. He could be in the running for NFL Comeback Player of the Year and should continue to give the Dolphins that edge rusher that every team is looking for next year.

Brandon Doughty
News
Doughty was released by the Dolphins on Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Doughty's release leaves the Dolphins with just two options at quarterback in Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore, while the team had to make room for defensive tackle Chris Jones who they signed Wednesday. Given he clears waivers, Doughty figures to be added to Miami's practice squad in hopes they can keep him as part of the organization moving forward. The rookie is expected to get another shot at an NFL roster in the future.

Kenny Stills
News
Stills secured all five of his targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

Stills excelled in his usual complementary role, notching a 36-yard catch in the first half and serving as the team's second-leading receiver in both catches and yardage on the afternoon. The fourth-year pro displayed a knack for getting into the end zone in the latter stages of the season, notching touchdown receptions in five of his last six games, but didn't cross the goal line in Sunday's loss. Although the Dolphins' season ended in disappointing fashion, Stills offered reason for optimism with his 2016 campaign, posting the second-best reception (42) and yardage totals (726) of his career, while establishing a new high-water mark in touchdowns (nine).

Jay Ajayi
News
Ajayi rushed for 33 yards on 16 carries and secured all three targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

Ajayi ran into a Steelers' run defense determined to avenge the embarrassment he'd caused them back in Week 6 down in South Florida, when he'd rumbled for 204 yards and two touchdowns, his first of what would be three 200-yard tallies on the season. Ajayi found running room at a premium from the opening possession, and ultimately counted an eight-yard run as his longest of the afternoon. The 23-year-old, who appeared to have been injured late in the regular-season finale against the Patriots, also left the field with a shoulder stinger in the latter stages of Sunday's contest. Despite the disappointing finish to the season, the 23-year-old served notice to the rest of the league this season with a 1,272-yard campaign that also included eight touchdowns, even as he failed to see double-digit carries in a game until Week 5.

Dominique Jones
News
Jones (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Patriots, the team's official site reports.

The backup tight end will thus close out the regular season on the sidelines, with Dion Sims and MarQueis Gray helming the position once again.

Bene' Benwikere
News
Benwikere was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

It's been quite the season for Benwikere, who started the year as the Panthers' top cornerback. After a disastrous showing in Week 4 against the Falcons in which Julio Jones racked up over 300 receiving yards the Panthers decide to part ways with the cornerback. The Dolphins then signed Benwikere off of waivers but kept him inactive for all four games. He now hits the market once again, and even with a disappointing track record this season, he could still find his way onto a roster looking to bolster their defensive backfield.

Byron Maxwell
News
Maxwell (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers.

Maxwell wasn't expected to play entering the weekend due to an ankle issue, while his absence will certainly be felt by the Dolphins' defense as he usually serves at their top corner. Bobby McCain and Jordan Lucas figure to see expanded roles behind Tony Lippett.

Injury
Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Chimdi Chekwa
News
Chekwa (hamstring) was waived/injured by the Dolphins on Monday, The Washington Times reports.

Chekwa signed on with Miami in early October, but didn't register in the box score during any game. However, he went down with a hamstring injury Sunday against the Jets and appears to be sidelined for an uncertain period of time.

Reshad Jones
News
Jones (shoulder) underwent successful surgery on Tuesday and is expected to be out for four months, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

Jones was placed on injured reserve about two weeks ago after tearing his rotator cuff in Week 6's win over the Steelers. He'll now shift his focus to rehabbing the injury, leaving the Dolphins with Walt Aikens as their starting strong safety for the remainder of the season.

Dion Sims
News
Sims secured all five of his targets for 34 yards in Sunday's 30-12 wild-card loss to the Steelers.

The jumbo-sized tight end was once again a trusted part of the short passing game, with his five receptions surpassing his total from any regular-season game in 2016. Sims upped his involvement in the offense after Jordan Cameron went on injured reserve in early November with a concussion, and he served as a reliable target for both Ryan Tannehill and Matt Moore. In the process, Sims set a new career high in receptions (26) and touchdowns (four).

Ryan Tannehill
News
The Dolphins have not ruled out the possibility that Tannehill could undergo offseason surgery to repair his left knee, the Miami Herald reports.

Tannehill sprained both his ACL and MCL back on Dec. 11 and though the QB practiced some this past Friday, he was unable to rally in time to join the Dolphins' playoff push. As the team's offseason gets underway, doctors are in the process of evaluating how to manage the next steps in Tannehill's recovery. A procedure of some sort thus remains a possibility for the QB at this time and in such a scenario, his participation in the team's offseason program could be impacted.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rashawn Scott
News
Scott was signed to the Dolphins' active roster Wednesday, Armando Alguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Scott's promotion makes him the sixth receiver on the Dolphins' roster, and suggests that DeVante Parker (back), who missed practice Wednesday, might not be ready to play by the time Sunday rolls around. If Parker does sit, Scott is still the fifth wide receiver on the depth chart, curbing his fantasy value.

John Denney
News
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
News
Lucas played just four special teams snaps during the Dolphins 12-10 loss to the Seahawks.

Lucas appears to have cemented his role as a depth corner in Miami. Despite overcoming the leg injury that he suffered back in early August, the Penn State product is not expected to take on a bigger role with the defense this season.

Lafayette Pitts
News
Pitts (back) has been a full participant at practice this week.

Pitts suffered a back injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers but returned to the field this week. Look for him to resume his role on special teams this Sunday against the Ravens.
