Saints' Stephone Anthony: Likely to start Week 14
Anthony is lining up as a starting linebacker in walkthroughs ahead of Sunday's tilt against the 49ers, John Hendrix reports.
Anthony appears set to slot into New Orleans' starting defense Week 14 with A.J. Klein (knee) and Kiko Alonso (thigh) both inactive. The 2015 first-round pick normally contributes on special teams, but he'll now have a shot to show well on defense.... See More ... See Less

Saints' Stephone Anthony: Back with Saints
Anthony signed a contract with New Orleans on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Two years after leaving New Orleans, Anthony will be returning to play for the team that drafted him 31st overall in 2015. Expected to contribute mostly on special teams, Anthony isn't likely to offer much value in IDP formats, but it's still nice to see him reuniting with special teams coordinator, Darren Rizzi. Barring injury, the 28-year-old linebacker should remain on the waiver wire.... See More ... See Less

Anthony was released by the Falcons on Monday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Demoted to second team
Anthony was replaced at starting outside linebacker by rookie Jerome Baker at Sunday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Anthony was essentially a non-factor in limited snaps during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers, while the team has elected to give their third-round rookie (Baker) a chance at securing a starting job at outside linebacker. Anthony exhibits a larger frame than Baker, but the latter has shown playmaking ability and speed in coverage situations.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Team option declined
The Dolphins declined Anthony's fifth-year option for the 2019 season Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Anthony, who the Dolphins acquired last September in a trade with the Saints, played just eight games in his first season in Miami while struggling to stay healthy. With Anthony due $9.2 million in 2019 if his fifth-year option was picked up, the Dolphins understandably declined it. That will force Anthony to play for his next contract during the upcoming season, so he'll likely do everything he can to stay healthy and improve across the board as a defender.... See More ...

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Practices without limitations
Anthony (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Misses practice Wednesday
Anthony (knee) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins web site reports.
Anthony sustained the injury during the game Sunday versus Tampa Bay. That game was the first one he had played in since Week 4. If he can't play Sunday the Dolphins will be awfully thin at LB with only Chase Allen and the recently signed Neville Hewitt as backups for each position.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Hurts left knee
Anthony injured his left knee against the Buccaneers on Sunday and is questionable to return, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Anthony is appearing in his first game since Week 4 against the Saints, but leaving the game with an injury puts the Dolphins in a tight spot. Chase Allen (concussion) has also left the game, leaving just three healthy Dolphins' linebackers: Kiko Alonso, Mike Hull and Lawrence Timmons. If Anthony doesn't return Sunday, expect more updates on his injury Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Good to go for Sunday
Anthony (ankle) will be ready to play Sunday against the Jets, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
This will be Anthony's first game of the season, and more importantly, his first start with his new squad. Even with little time to learn the playbook in Miami, Anthony will still be in store for ample snaps off the bat with Lawrence Timmons suspended indefinitely and the team having suffered multiple losses to their linebacking corps due to injury. Anthony saw his production take a significant hit in his second season with New Orleans, but the Dolphins are hopeful that the change of scenery will help him unlock the high-end IDP potential he demonstrated as a rookie....

This comes as no surprise, as Anthony reportedly is ready to play Sunday against the Jets, according toChris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The 2015 first-round pick will have an immediate opportunity to make a first impression with the Dolphins, but he remains a unproven IDP option until he illustrates some consistency and can stay on the field....

Dolphins' Stephone Anthony: Dealt to Dolphins
The Saints traded Anthony (ankle) to the Dolphins for an undisclosed 2018 draft pick Tuesday.
The Dolphins suspended starting strongside linebacker Lawrence Timmons indefinitely after he went incognito over the weekend, creating a need at the second level of the defense. Anthony, who has missed the first two games of the season with an ankle injury, will likely fill the void when healthy. Having said that, it remains to be see which Anthony will show up. After accumulating 112 tackles as a rookie in 2015, he didn't have the same impact last season, notching 16 stops in 10 games while tending to the occasional injury.... See More ... See Less
Saints' Stephone Anthony: Inactive Week 2
Anthony (ankle) is inactive for the Saints' Week 2 game against New England, Scott DeShazier of the Saints' official site reports.
