Alonso, who logged five tackles (four solo) before being ejected from Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills, finishes up the 2018 season with 125 tackles, six passes defended, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Alonso was ejected from Sunday's season finale for a late hit on Bills quarterback Josh Allen in the third quarter, which was reminiscent of previous late hits involving Joe Flacco and Andrew Luck. The play devolve into a scuffle, leading to Robert Quinn and Jordan Mills also being ejected. Alonso was a rare beacon of consistency in the Dolphins' defense this year -- leading the unit in tackles -- and remains signed with the team through 2020.
Alonso (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Bills.
Alonso will thus tough out his knee issue to suit up for the season finale, although it remains to be seen if he'll actually get any game reps. He enjoyed active status last week versus the Jaguars as well, but he didn't log any snaps. The veteran linebacker is one of the few bright spots for a Dolphins team that appears headed for wholesale changes in both the coaching staff and player personnel this offseason.
Alonso (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Alonso was able to return to practice as a full participant Friday, but it wasn't enough to avoid the questionable tag. The 28-year-old was questionable for last week's loss to the Jaguars and was active, though he did play in the contest. Alonso would seem on track to play but given the circumstances from Week 16 his status is more up in the air.
Alonso did not play during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars despite his active status, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Alonso missed his first game of the season due to lingering knee and hamstring injuries, and did not play a single snap despite being active. The veteran entered Sunday's game with a questionable tag after having been a limited participant in practice all week. The Dolphins' defense looked notably softer without its top linebacker, who still leads the team with 120 tackles, three interceptions and three forced fumbles. With Miami now eliminated from the playoffs, it's conceivable that the team would elect to take a cautious approach to Alonso's recovery and sideline him again versus the Bills in Week 17. If Alonso were to miss any time, Mike Hull would be expected to draw another start at weakside linebacker.
Wake recorded four tackles (two solo) during Sunday's 17-7 loss to the Jaguars.
Wake played through hamstring and knee injuries during the Week 16 loss, and recorded his lowest single-game tackle total since Week 5 of the regular season. The veteran will attempt to close out the season strong, and will see a favorable matchup against the Bills in Week 17.
