Dolphins' Clayton Fejedelem: Bigger role Sunday?
Fejedelem (groin) is active Week 8 against the Lions.
Fejedelem was added to the active roster in early October and appeared in three games since, though until Week 7, he was almost exclusively a special teamer. He did play 16 defensive snaps last week against Pittsburgh, and the staff must have liked what they saw, as safety Eric Rowe will be a healthy scratch this week despite starter Brandon Jones suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week 7. Opportunity now awaits for the seventh-year safety to make a greater impact on the game.... See More ... See Less

Fejedelem (undisclosed) was designated to return from IR on Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The move will open up a three-week window for Fejedelem to return to the active roster, although he could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Jets. Once he is healthy enough to compete, Fejedelem projects to provide depth at safety, but he'll most likely be chipping in on special teams.... See More ... See Less

Dolphins' Clayton Fejedelem: Doubtful for Thursday's game
Fejedelem (pectoral) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Jaguars after logging a third consecutive limited practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Fejedelem missed last week's loss to the Bills, and he's looking unlikely to turn around and play in Week 3 on a short week.

Dolphins' Clayton Fejedelem: Sitting out Week 1
Fejedelem (pectoral) is officially inactive for Sunday's opener against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Fejedelem was listed as doubtful heading into the contest with the pectoral issue, so this news isn't quite surprising. The Illinois product is more of a special-teams ace, so his absence likely won't affect much from an IDP perspective. In his stead, Kavon Frazier and Brandon Jones will handle depth safety and likely some special teams work Sunday.... See More ... See Less

Fejedelem (pectoral) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's season opener in New England, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Fejedelem wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, but he's now logged back-to-back limited practices due to a pectoral issue. If the special-teams ace and depth safety isn't able to suit up Sunday, his next chance to take the field will come Week 2 against the Bills.... See More ... See Less
