New Dolphins head coach and former mentor of Rowe in New England, Brian Flores, clearly believes in Rowe's potential given the cornerback's massive struggles staying on the field during his time with the Patriots -- missing 27 out of 48 possible games. If the 2015 second-rounder can maintain a clean bill of health in his new locale -- and ultimately secure a starting spot in the lineup -- it's not out of the question for Rowe to surface in IDP formats this year. After all, in that scenario the Utah product would figure to see quite a bit of attention from opposing quarterbacks while playing opposite of teammate and 2018 second-team All-Pro cornerback, Xavien Howard
Rowe only suited up for four games with the Patriots in 2018, averaging 34 defensive snaps per outing. He'll follow departed defensive play caller Brian Flores -- who was hired as the Dolphins' head man earlier in the offseason -- to Miami. He'll likely compete for a starting role opposite All-Pro cornerback Xavien Howard.
Rowe injured his groin during Week 7's contest against the Bears and subsequently missed Monday's game in Buffalo. It now appears he'll miss the rest of the season. Look for Jonathan Jones and Jason McCourty to see increased workloads with Rowe sidelined.
Rowe (groin) was ruled out for Monday's game against the Bills, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports.
Rowe did not participate at practice this week so the designation is unsurprising as he continues to battle the groin issue sustained in Week 2. Jonathan Jones and Jason McCourty should see increased defensive snaps Monday at Buffalo.
Rowe (groin) was a non-participant in Thursday's practice, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.
Rowe has been nursing a groin injury since Week 2, and appears to have exacerbated the issue during Sunday's win over the Bears. The starting cornerback should be considered questionable for the Patriots' matchup against Buffalo on Monday, while Jonathan Jones would be in line to receive extra defensive snaps if Rowe were to miss any time.
