Grant (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills. After suffering a high-ankle sprain in last week's win over the Raiders, Grant never looked like a strong bet to suit up for the regular-season finale, but he at least made it a tough decision for the Dolphins to make him inactive by turning in limited practices Thursday and Friday. Ultimately, Grant didn't demonstrate enough progress to get the green light from the training staff, but the Dolphins will hope to have him back for a potential wild-card game next weekend, should Miami earns its way into the postseason. Grant concludes the regular season with 36 receptions for 373 yards and a touchdown over his 14 appearances.
Grant (ankle) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. Along with Grant, DeVante Parker (hamstring) is also taking a questionable designation into the weekend, with resolution on the receivers' statuses likely to come when Miami releases its inactive list 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Per Schad, Grant "was not moving as well" as Parker during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, suggesting the latter as a better chance at playing Week 17 than the former. Mack Hollins, Isaiah Ford and Lynn Bowden would be candidates for added snaps this weekend if either or both Grant and Parker are unavailable.
Grant (ankle) logged a limited practice Thursday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Prior reports suggested that Grant's high-ankle sprain would prevent him from playing Sunday against the Bills, but his limited session Thursday suddenly brightens his odds of suiting up in the regular-season finale. According to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com, Grant was spotted catching passes during individual drills Thursday, suggesting he was able to move around decently well.
Grant (ankle) is participating in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Grant missed Wednesday's session due to his high-ankle sprain, so it would represent tangible progress if he's even to handle even limited reps Thursday. The slot man still appears quite iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills, but the Dolphins haven't ruled him out.
Grant (ankle) isn't participating in Wednesday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Grant is reportedly nursing a high-ankle sprain, which could result in him being placed on injured reserve if the Dolphins are in need of another roster spot prior to Sunday's game against Buffalo. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has reported that Grant will miss the regular-season finale, though the Dolphins haven't yet made an official call on the wideout's status.
