McDonald recorded 86 tackles, five passes defended, three interceptions and one fumble recovery during the regular season.
McDonald stepped up as a playmaker in Miami's secondary before sitting out the final two games of the regular season due to an undisclosed ankle issue. The 27-year-old did appear to have a small chance to suit up Week 16 and Week 17, so it's reasonable to speculate that he'll be able to recover from the injury in time to participate in offseason workouts. McDonald, whose three interceptions in 2018 were a career high, is entering the second year of his four-year contract with the Dolphins.
McDonald (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
McDonald was a non-participant at practice this week as the likelihood of him playing Week 17 appears minimal. The Dolphins are already eliminated from the playoffs, so it seems unlikely the team would risk playing him on no practice reps in a game that will simply determine their draft pick. Minkah Fitzpatrick should continue to see increased snaps at free safety with McDonald trending downward for the season finale.
McDonald (ankle) did not practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
McDonald was forced out of last week's game and hasn't been able to return to field since Week 15. With nothing to play for, the Dolphins may be inclined to shut down McDonald in hopes of avoiding any potential additional injuries. Such a decision is merely speculative, however. Miami will likely publicize its plans for McDonald as Sunday inches closer.
McDonald (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against Jacksonville.
McDonald's absence is no surprise after he was listed as doubtful prior to the game. Minkah Fitzpatrick or Walt Aikens will figure to draw the start while McDonald is out.
McDonald (ankle) did not practice Wednesday.
McDonald was able to play through his lingering ankle injury during Miami's loss to the Vikings in Week 15, but his status for Sunday's tilt against the Jaguars is murky at best. If McDonald were to miss any time, Minkah Fitzpatrick would likely draw the start at free safety.
