Gray practiced in full on Friday, so it's not surprise that he'll be suited up and ready to go for Sunday's game. He's slated to serve as Dion Sims' backup at tight end.
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.
Lippett was likely to play despite being listed as questionable after he participated in full at practice Friday. He'll start along with Byron Maxwell at corner.
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.
The suspension will begin immediately which means Jones will be eligible to return Week 14. Jones has been part of a defensive line rotation and has 23 tackles and 2.5 sacks to date this season.
There was some optimism earlier in the week that Howard would see his first game action since Oct 9 but that was squashed quickly. Defensive coordinator Vance Joseph came out and stated Thursday that Howard is not ready yet. The Dolphins could use some help in the secondary but that help will have to wait until Week 14.
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.
Branch has taken over the starting role from Mario Williams and has given opposing offenses another defender to worry about. He only has 3.5 sacks so far this season but has been in the opponents backfield causing havoc more often than not. The Dolphins boast one of the better defensive lines in the NFL.
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.
Drake should be a go Sunday after practicing fully Friday, but his limited use in the team's offense these days keeps the rookie off the fantasy radar for now.
Williams was unable to come close towards replicating his productive Week 10 performance in which he found pay dirt twice. While the third-year running back is evidently trusted in goal-line situations, he's firmly planted behind Jay Ajayi and will only post serviceable stat lines if he gets in the end zone.
Though the wideout was listed as a non-participant at practice this week, Beasley's report suggests that the Dolphins remain hopeful that Parker could potentially give it a go Sunday. That said, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald relays the notion that the team may elect to play it safe with the wideout, with coach Adam Gase noting Friday of Parker "we'll be smart as far as what we'll do. He might even tell me I'm ready to go and I might say no." In any case, those still considering the wideout in Week 13 lineups will learn of his playing status in advance of the first wave of kickoffs Sunday, with Miami taking on Baltimore on the road at 1:00 ET. If Parker ends up listed as out or limited Sunday, Leonte Carroo's role in the team's passing attack could see an uptick.
Moore was spotted back on the practice field for the first time since suffering a concussion in Miami's second preseason game. Despite only participating in individual drills, it's encouraging to see Moore back on the gridiron. Assuming there are no setbacks, Moore should be ready to serve as Miami's primary backup to Ryan Tannehill in Week 1.
Vigil, who was placed on the Dolphins' NFI list in August, figures to provide depth at linebacker as well as special teams contributions. In 16 games with Miami during the 2015 season, he recorded just 18 tackles (15 solo) during his rookie campaign.
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.
Williams was bothered with an illness Sunday against the 49ers but has since recovered, making him fully available for Week 13's tilt with the Ravens.
Johnson was competing for a spot as the final backup in Tampa Bay, and it appears he lost out to fellow backs Mike James and Peyton Barber, who'll be competing for the No. 3 role.
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.
The report further claimed, per a source, that there was no physical violence with his girlfriend, but that his phone was smashed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Duarte's promotion to the active roster comes in the wake of Jordan Cameron being sent to the injured reserve. The rookie tight end will merely be a reserve option for the Dolphins, though he might have a chance to eventually gain a role on special teams.
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.
Carroo's catch was surprisingly his first since Week 1, when he caught two passes for 14 yards against the Seahawks. A rookie third-rounder, Carroo was very productive in college, evidenced by his school-record 29 touchdowns at Rutgers, but he's been buried behind Parker, Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills since joining the Dolphins. Although Parker's back ailment is still being evaluated, Carroo's touchdown Sunday could earn him more looks going forward.
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."
Jenkins was able to practice in limited fashion for the first time this week on Friday, entering the weekend with a chance to play Sunday. If he's unable to play, however, Neville Hewitt and Spencer Paysinger figure to see additional reps at outside linebacker.
Suh will avoid missing his first game of the season as expected, so he'll once again get the start at defensive tackle and play a key role on the Dolphins' defense. He has notched 2.5 total sacks throughout the team's past four games.
Landry's pass-catching volume continues to take a hit in head coach Adam Gase's offense, but he remains one of Ryan Tannehill's most trusted options. The third-year pro did lead Miami in targets on the afternoon, and he's seen no fewer than six looks in five of his last six contests. While he brings low touchdown equity (two scores on 64 receptions this season), Landry remains a highly viable PPR option.
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.
Alonso spent another practice as a limited participant on Friday, so his status for Week 13 remains up in the air. If he's ultimately unable to play, Mike Hull and Zach Vigil figure to see additional snaps at middle linebacker.
Franks had a 24-yard field goal blocked and also missed on a 50-yard attempt. Franks is 7-10 on the season. That isn't the best of percentages but what is more concerning is that two of those misses have been from less than 30 yards. His job is safe but a few more easy misses and he could see some competition during practice.
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.
Pouncey said that he expects to be ready for the season opener. He recently signed an extension worth more than $40 million.
Perry played in all 16 games in 2014, mostly appearing on special teams, before missing the entire 2015 season with a foot injury. He was never in serious competition for a role in the team's running back positional battle.
It's been almost two years since Jordan participated in a practice, as he has spent all of the 2016 season on the non-football injury list, rehabbing a knee aliment. A return to practice doesn't guarantee he'll be on field this coming Sunday or even the next handful of games. However, if he were cleared to play, Jordan may serve as a replacement for Jason Jones, who now begins his two-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Look for more updates on Jordan's status to come as practice reports are released.
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).
Paysinger appeared to have suffered an injury in practice this week, but it didn't prove overly serious.
Wake has been on a tear, as he's notched 6.5 sacks over his last five games. After starting the season with just a single sack over the first five contests of 2016, he's returned to form as one of the elite pass rushers in the NFL.
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.
Stills' 43-yard touchdown reception late in the third quarter seemed like somewhat of a luxury at the time, as it extended the Dolphins' lead to 24-14. The young veteran has now been in the end zone in two of the last three weeks, and five times overall. While Stills is often a third option behind Jarvis Landry and Devante Parker in the Miami passing game, he brings a big-play dimension to the offense that keeps him fantasy relevant in deeper formats and as a DFS option.
Facing the worst rush defense in the league. Ajayi nevertheless found running room very much at a premium with three of his starting offensive lineman sitting out the contest. It was the second-year back's lowest rushing yardage total since Week 5 against the Titans, and his lowest YPC figure of the season overall. Ajayi will hope for improved health from his offensive line in anticipation of a showdown with the Ravens' elite run-stuffing front in Week 13.
Harris signed with Jacksonville at the start of October, but never appeared in a game. His place on the active roster was filled by the promotion of second-year tackle Jeremiah Poutasi from the practice squad.
Jones tied for the team lead in catches while leading them in receiving yardage and scoring the lone Dolphins receiving touchdown. He came in with just three catches for 12 yards on the season, and there's little reason to believe this strong performance was much more than an outlier against an exploitable opponent.
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.
Maxwell hasn't played well so far this season as he has struggled in both pass coverage and tackling. Tony Lippett will be the starting corner and how well he plays will determine whether or not Maxwell will get his starting job back.
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.
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.
The jumbo-sized tight end has been involved in the air attack the last two weeks, having secured seven of eight targets for 73 yards and Sunday's score over that span. The touchdown, which came late in the second quarter and culminated an 11-play, 84-yard drive, was Sims' first of the season. As the Dolphins' main tight end option, he has some viability as a late-season addition in deeper formats for those desperate for help at the position. He'll look to continue his recent solid stretch of play when Miami faces off with the Ravens in a Week 13 road tilt.
Although RB Jay Ajayi was rightfully expected to thrive against the Niners' questionable run defense, Tannehill found himself able to exploit their equally beatable secondary on a regular basis, while the former ran into some tough sledding on the ground. Tannehill found eight different pass catchers on the afternoon, spreading the ball around effectively while tallying his third straight multi-touchdown game. While his fantasy value has been somewhat capped by the Dolphins' run-heavy approach, the fifth-year pro is certainly capable of performances like Sunday's when the ground game is shut down. He'll look to put together another strong outing against the Ravens in a Week 13 road tilt.
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.
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.
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.
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.
