  • Dolphins' Adam Butler: Ready to play Sunday

    Butler (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Titans.

    Butler was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and was originally considered questionable for Sunday, but he was quickly able to shed the injury designation. The 27-year-old has 16 total tackles and two sacks while filling a rotational role on Miami's defensive line this season.

  • Dolphins' Adam Butler: Off COVID-19 list, status uncertain

    Butler (illness) was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday. He's still listed as questionable with a non COVID-19 related illness for Sunday's game against the Titans, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    The 27-year-old has been a quality depth piece along the defensive line and should continue to reprise that role provided he's able to shake the aforementioned illness.

  • Dolphins' Adam Butler: Placed on COVID-19 list

    Butler (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday after testing positive for the Virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Butler's addition to the COVID list would be a blow to the Dolphins' defensive-line depth if he were to miss Sunday against Tennessee. The five-year pro can clear protocols in time if he is vaccinated and able to produce two negative tests more than 24 hours apart.

  • Dolphins' Adam Butler: Joining division rival

    Butler (thigh) and the Dolphins came to terms Wednesday on a two-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Head coach Brian Flores has poached a number of his former Patriots players since joining Miami, and Butler becomes the latest to join the list. The soon-to-be 27-year-old proved himself as a reliable rotational pass rusher in New England, and though he doesn't thrive against the run, he's capable of bolstering the interior of the defensive line when needed. He dealt with a thigh injury late in 2020, but it doesn't appear that his offseason availability will be affected.

  • Patriots' Adam Butler: Thigh injury arises Week 17

    Butler (thigh) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jets, Zack Cox of NESN.com reports.

    Depth along the interior defensive line will be depleted as long as Butler is unavailable after he exited in the fourth quarter with four tackles and a sack to his ledger. Butler has now registered four sacks since Week 12, but Akeem Spence may have to step into a more integral role at defensive tackle if the 26-year-old proves unable to return.

  • Patriots' Adam Butler: Third sack in four games

    Butler made four tackles (two solo) and a sack in Sunday's 22-12 loss to the Dolphins.

    Butler rang up six sacks last season, but he started the 2020 season on a brutal cold streak. Through the first 10 games, Butler failed to post a sack. He has turned it around of late, posting three sacks over the last four games, adding 15 tackles in that stretch. Butler will look to finish on a high note with games against the Bills and the Jets to close out the season.

  • Patriots' Adam Butler: Cleared for Week 13

    Butler (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Chargers.

    The 26-year-old was held to limited participation during Friday's practice, but he's demonstrated enough in pregame warmups to get the nod for a crucial Week 13 showdown. Butler earned his second start of the 2020 campaign last Sunday against the Cardinals, also notching his first sack of the season during that contest.
