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.
Alonso recorded nine tackles (three solo) in Sunday's loss to the Patriots.
Alonso is averaging just over seven tackles per game this season and his season total is now up to 78 (53 solo). He'll look to continue disrupting offenses next week when he faces the Broncos.
Alonso also had an unnecessary roughness penalty for a late hit to Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the game. While he might receive a fine for the transgression, it's unlikely that Alonso will be subject to any further league discipline. Alonso has recorded 69 tackles to go with a sack and two forced fumbles on the season.
