  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Will likely start Sunday

    Eguavoen will likely draw the start in place of Jerome Baker (knee) during Sunday's matchup against the Bills.

    Eguavoen played a season-high 53 snaps after Baker went down with a back injury during Week 7. The 28-year-old will likely see a similar workload against the Bills on Sunday.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Clears COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins activated Eguavoen off the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday.

    After a three-day stint on the COVID-19 list, Eguavoen is back with the Dolphins. The Texas Tech product appeared in all 16 games for Miami last year, totaling nine tackles while primarily playing special teams.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Tests positive for coronavirus

    Eguavoen was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday after testing positive for the virus, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Eguavoen will be sidelined for at least the 10 days after producing a positive COVID test. He appeared in all 16 games for Miami last year and totaled nine tackles while primarily playing special teams.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Lands on COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins placed Eguavoen on the reserve/COVID list Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Last year, Eguavoen was also placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he only spent a few days inactive, which likely means he was just a close contact as opposed to testing positive. It remains to be seen how long his most recent trip will last. The Texas Tech product has appeared in all 16 games in each of his first two NFL seasons. However, his defensive snaps dropped dramatically in year two after he registered 42 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one fumble recovery as a rookie.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Short stay on COVID list

    The Dolphins activated Eguavoen from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

    Eguavoen is already back on the roster after having been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday. In the wake of Vince Biegel (Achilles) having been placed on injured reserve, Eguavoen could be a candidate to receive increased practice reps.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Heads to COVID-19 list

    The Dolphins placed Eguavoen (illness) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Eguavoen made his NFL debut with the Dolphins last season, when he made 42 tackles (22 solo), 3.5 sacks and one defended pass across 16 contests. The former CFL standout's placement on the reserve/COVID-19 list indicates that he's either tested positive or been in close contact with someone who has.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Manages 42 tackles in 2019

    Eguavoen had 42 tackles (22 solo), 3.5 sacks and one defended pass across 16 games in 2019.

    Eguavoen also recovered one fumble. The 26-year-old had spent his time in the CFL since going undrafted in 2014, but he managed to make his NFL debut in 2019 and carve out a consistent role with the Dolphins. Still, he won't possess much IDP value as long as he's limited to a depth role.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Returns to sack column

    Eguavoen recorded four solo tackles and one sack during Sunday's 37-31 win over the Eagles.

    Eguavoen now has 2.5 sacks across 12 contests. The 26-year-old remains secure in his role as a starting linebacker for Miami, but his IDP value is capped due to a lack of weekly consistency as a pass rusher or run stopper.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Tacks on sack

    Eguavoen tallied four solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's 27-14 loss to the Steelers.

    Eguavoen now has 1.5 sacks through seven games, and he ranks fourth on his team with 27 stops on the season. The Texas Tech product didn't suit up in the NFL for four years following college, but he's certainly making an impact with the Dolphins so far.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Eight tackles in loss

    Eguavoen notched eight tackles (seven solo) during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys.

    Eguavoen played every snap on defense during Sunday's loss. He's secured a starting role in Miami's linebacker corps and could offer some IDP value as a tackle-dependent option.

  • Dolphins' Sam Eguavoen: Makes four stops in debut

    Eguavoen recorded four tackles and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 59-10 loss to the Ravens.

    Eguavoen played in his first NFL game, and he worked in a hefty role by playing 68 of 77 snaps (88 percent) and putting pressure on Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. This defense was torched in the season opener, and its prospects won't be any better when the Patriots come to town in Week 2.
