Aikens (hand) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Aikens sustained the hand injury Week 16 against the Jaguars but was able to practice fully Friday to help avoid the questionable tag. The 27-year-old has played a handful of defensive snaps in each of the last three games and should see a similar workload in the season finale.
Aikens is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a hand injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Aikens left the field during the second half. As long as the fifth-year cornerback remains sidelined, expect Maurice Smith to benefit from an uptick in snaps.
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.
Sources indicated Dolphins safety Walt Aikens has been suspended for the season finale against the Jets, reports the Sun Sentinel. There was no indication as to why Aikens was suspended. He was declared inactive for Week 17. In 15 games, Aikens has 15 tackles and one interception.
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.
