Alonso posted 13 tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win over the Jets.
Alonso has been in typical form thus far this season, nearly averaging double-digit tackles. He's a reliable run and pass defender, and his 19 solo tackles through two weeks showcases his ability to take people down in the open field. He'll look to maintain the strong play as Miami hosts the Raiders in Week 3.
Alonso recorded six tackles and an interception during Sunday's 27-20 victory over the Titans.
Alonso was the only Dolphins linebacker to log 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps. His interception came off a failed screen attempt to Titans running back Dion Lewis and represents the linebacker's first pick since 2016. The owner of three 100-tackle campaigns in four professional seasons, Alonso is a decent IDP option in most formats and that shouldn't change as long as he commands such extensive playing time.
Alonso (neck) recorded 115 tackles, one sack, one PBU and two forced fumbles across 16 games in 2017.
Alonso matched the 115 tackles he netted in 2016 during his first year with Miami and was very consistent in doing so. In fact, he logged at least seven tackles in 10 of 16 games while reaching double digits in that category twice. The Oregon product remains under contract with the Dolphins for the next three years and should return in 2018 worthy of IDP consideration.
Alonso is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Bills with a neck injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Alonso is the Dolphins' second-leading tackler behind safey Reshad Jones and would prove a sizable absence for the team's defense. Stephone Anthony should see increased snaps at weak-side linebacker with Alonso sidelined.
