Anthony (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Anthony was able to play in Week 11's game against the Bucs, but he was limited to only 21 total snaps. He's in line to play Sunday against the Patriots, yet he isn't slated for many snaps behind Kiko Alonso.
Anthony sustained the injury during the game Sunday versus Tampa Bay. That game was the first one he had played in since Week 4. If he can't play Sunday the Dolphins will be awfully thin at LB with only Chase Allen and the recently signed Neville Hewitt as backups for each position.
Anthony is appearing in his first game since Week 4 against the Saints, but leaving the game with an injury puts the Dolphins in a tight spot. Chase Allen (concussion) has also left the game, leaving just three healthy Dolphins' linebackers: Kiko Alonso, Mike Hull and Lawrence Timmons. If Anthony doesn't return Sunday, expect more updates on his injury Wednesday.
This comes as no surprise as Anthony reportedly is ready to play against the Jets on Sunday. The 2015 first-round pick will have an immediate opportunity to make a first impression with the Dolphins, but he remains a unproven IDP option until he illustrates some consistency and can stay on the field.
Anthony (ankle) will be ready to play Sunday against the Jets, Chris Perkins of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
This will be Anthony's first game of the season, and more importantly, the first start with his new squad. Even with little time to learn the playbook in Miami, he's slated to be the starting strongside linebacker. This game is against the Jets, though, so it should be a good way to ease into the new defensive scheme. It'll be interesting to see if he is over the "sophomore slump" he suffered last season, so he's more of a wait-and-see option at this point.
