Dolphins' DeShon Elliott: Free agency looms
Elliott (calf) racked up 82 tackles (53 solo), seven pass breakups, one interception, and one fumble recovery across 15 regular-season appearances.
Elliott put together an impressive season on his one-year deal with Miami, prior to a calf injury forcing him out of the team's playoff loss to Kansas City early. The severity of Elliott's calf issue remains undisclosed, but there's not yet any reason for significant worry about his health being a concern on the free agent market. Heading into his age-27 season, if Elliott doesn't opt for a reunion with the Dolphins, he should have little difficulty securing a starting role at safety elsewhere.... See More ... See Less

Elliott (calf) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Chiefs, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Dolphins' DeShon Elliott: Leads Miami in tackles in loss
Elliott finished with 10 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens.
It was the first time since Week 1 that Elliott registered double-digit tackles. His increased workload was largely due to the dominant performance of Lamar Jackson, who threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns. The Dolphins are set to play for the AFC East title against the Bills in Week 18, so Elliott should be on the field for most of the team's defensive snaps like he has in his previous appearances....

Elliott (concussion) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional matchup against New York, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Dolphins' DeShon Elliott: In concussion protocol
Elliott (concussion) entered concussion protocol Tuesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Elliott exited Monday night's contest with a rib injury and he was evaluated for a concussion, but he was able to clear his evaluation.
