The Dolphins have yet to release Van Noy because the team hopes to trade him, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Van Noy was both productive and versatile last season, with 69 tackles, six sacks, six defended passes, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries, and he managed to suit up for 14 games despite battling numerous injuries. However, the soon-to-be 30-year-old is also due a $12.5 million salary next season, which could severely dampen trade interest.
The Dolphins plan to release Van Noy, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
Van Noy signed a four-year, $51 million contract with the Dolphins last March, but his tenure with the team will last just one season. The linebacker logged 69 tackles, six sacks, six defended passes, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 14 games in 2020, but he'll be on the move once again. Per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, letting Van Noy go will create $9.7 million in salary cap savings (and as much at $12.5M if he's deemed a post June 1 cut) for Miami.
Van Noy managed 69 tackles (46 solo), six sacks, six defended passes, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries across 14 games in 2020.
Van Noy was a consistent playmaker for the Dolphins during his inaugural season with the team, despite dealing with a multitude of lingering injuries and being forced to miss two games. The 29-year-old's versatility, which allows Miami to utilize him in coverage and as a pass rusher in addition to defending the run, provide him a considerable fantasy ceiling in IDP formats. After taking the offseason to get back to full health, Van Noy will return as an integral part of Miami's linebacker corps again come 2021.
Van Noy (hip) practiced without limitations Thursday and will play in Saturday's game versus the Raiders, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
After a pair of limited sessions, Van Noy proved he's at 100 percent for this weekend's AFC clash. The 29-year-old linebacker has posted six sacks through 12 games; he sits just a half-sack shy of tying his career high in the category.
Van Noy (hip) was a limited practice participant Thursday.
The veteran has been dealing with his hip issue since Nov. 15, having sustained the injury in-game during a Week 10 home matchup against the Chargers. Van Noy has mostly proven capable of fighting through, sitting out Week 14, but otherwise suiting up in every contest since the initial injury. This week, he's been limited for all three of the Dolphins' practices. If able to get the nod for a Saturday night road trip to Las Vegas, the 29-year-old year has a chance to break his career high in sacks (six), should he reach the quarterback one more time.
Van Noy (hip) is officially active for Sunday's divisional game against the Patriots.
Van Noy missed last week's game against the Chiefs, but after practicing on a limited basis this week, it was hard to see the veteran miss the game against his former team. The Dolphins' linebacking corps will be at full strength for the contest, as Van Noy, Jerome Baker (back) and Elandon Roberts (chest) are all active.
Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Van Noy logged three straight limited practice sessions this week, but he remains uncertain for Sunday's game against the Patriots, with whom he played 51 games over four seasons before signing in Miami. If Van Noy is ultimately ruled out, Sam Eguavoen and Andrew Van Ginkel are both alternatives to start in his place.
Van Noy (hip) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports
Van Noy was forced to miss last week's loss to the Chiefs with the nagging hip injury and he appears to be still managing the injury. The Dolphins missed his veteran presence Sunday as they gave up 33 points to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. Van Noy is still on track to return in Week 15, but if he's unable to go again, Sam Eguavoen and Andrew Van Ginkel would be the primary benefactors of more snaps on defense.
Van Noy (hip) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against Kansas City.
Van Noy came into the game drawing a questionable tag after he was limited in practice throughout the week, but the hip injury will force him to miss his second game of the season. The veteran's absence will be a tough loss for Miami, as he was coming off a three-sack performance in Week 13. With Van Noy sidelined, Sam Eguavoen and Andrew Van Ginkel are expected to see increased roles at linebacker for Sunday's game.
Van Noy (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Van Noy's coming off a three-sack performance that doubled his season total, so his presence will be key to Miami's upset bid against the defending champs. If the veteran linebacker ends up sitting out, Sam Eguavoen would likely absorb most of the snaps vacated by Van Noy.
Van Noy had eight solo tackles, three sacks, one pass defensed and three quarterback hits during Sunday's 19-7 win over the Bengals.
Van Noy put together one of the most dominant games of his career against Brandon Allen and the Bengals, at least statistically. To add to his absurd disruptiveness, the pass he tipped became an interception by Nik Needham. The 29-year-old is closing in on his career-high sack total for a single season (6.5), a number which he tallied in 2019.
Van Noy (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Broncos.
The 29-year-old was limited at practice most of the week after suffering the hip injury against the Chargers last weekend, but he's ready to play Week 11. Van Noy should continue to play an every-down role for Miami.
Van Noy (hip) is officially questionable for Sunday's game against the Broncos, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Van Noy briefly exited last weekend's win over the Chargers after his lingering hip injury acted up, and he's had his practice reps managed since. It looks like the veteran linebacker has a fair chance to suit up in Denver, though it's possible that he won't handle a full snap load even if active.
Van Noy (hip) logged a limited practice session Thursday, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
Van Noy was unable to practice in any capacity Wednesday, so this update provides at least some hope that he will be able to suit up Sunday in a road trip to the Mile High City. The 29-year-old linebacker sustained the injury during a Week 10 win over the Chargers, but he was capable of finishing out the game upon his third-quarter return. If Van Noy can avoid missing any time with his most recent issue, it would be another advantage for Miami's defense in a matchup against the Broncos' 28th-ranked scoring offense.
Van Noy (hip) didn't suit up in Wednesday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Van Noy suffered the injury in Sunday's win over the Chargers as he continues to rehab and receive treatment. The fact that he didn't participate at all is a bad sign for his chances to suit up in Sunday's game against the Broncos. If Van Noy were forced to miss more game action, Sam Eguavoen would likely draw a start at strongside linebacker.
Van Noy (hip) returned to Sunday's game against the Chargers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Van Noy suffered a hip injury in the first half, but he apparently will play through it after returning in the third quarter.
Van Noy was forced out of Sunday's game against the Chargers with a hip injury, Travis Wingfield of the Dolphins' official site reports.
Van Noy went down in clear pain during the first half and immediately went to the blue medical tent. He recorded three tackles (one solo) before leaving. Sam Eguavoen and Andrew Van Ginkel should both see upticks in usage while Van Noy is on the sidelines.
The Dolphins activated Van Noy off the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, indicating that he'll play Sunday versus the Chargers.
Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Van Noy wouldn't be ready in time for Sunday's game, but this transaction contrasts that and puts the veteran linebacker on track to play. This is good news for the Dolphins' sturdy defense, as he's piled up 33 tackles, two sacks, two pass breakups and two forced fumbles through seven games.
Coach Brian Flores said Friday that Van Noy (undisclosed) will not be available against the Chargers on Sunday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Van Noy was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday along with fellow defensive starter Christian Wilkins, who will similarly be forced to sit out Sunday's contest. When healthy, the veteran linebacker has played a three-down role for the Dolphins. His versatile abilities as a pass rusher, run blocker and pass defender will be missed as Miami attempts to contain Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
The Dolphins placed Van Noy on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Van Noy was one of three players placed on the COVID-19 list by Miami on Thursday, alongside Christian Wilkins and Matt Cole. The veteran linebacker appears to be in legitimate danger of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers, considering that NFL guidelines stipulate that players must quarantine for at least five days even if they test negative.
