Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Recovering from minor procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard, who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Patriots, recently underwent arthroscopic surgery to trim the meniscus of his injured knee, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The scope was considered minor, so Howard will have a chance at returning to action as soon as Week 15 in Minnesota if he progresses as quickly as the Dolphins anticipate. For at least Sunday, however, Miami may be hard pressed to slow down the Tom Brady-to-Josh Gordon connection without their No. 1 cornerback to match up against New England's top downfield threat. Minkah Fitzpatrick, Bobby McCain, Torry McTyer and Cornell Armstrong will likely work as Miami's primary corners in Week 14.

Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Week 14 absence confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase announced Friday that Howard (knee) won't play this weekend against the Patriots, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

It's a significant loss for the Miami defense, as Howard has been playing at an All-Pro level in 2018, pacing the NFL with seven interceptions to go with 35 tackles and 12 pass breakups in 12 games. Gase relayed that the Dolphins will re-evaluate Howard next week before offering another update on his status, implying there's some concern about their top cornerback missing time beyond Sunday. With Howard out of the mix, the Patriots' top downfield threat, Josh Gordon, should benefit from more favorable one-on-one matchups this weekend.

Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Could miss games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Adam Gase said Howard is week to week with a knee injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Despite the unfavorable terminology, Gase wasn't quite ready to rule his top cornerback out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. However, the coach did say that the thinks Howard will be back at some point this season, therefore implying the 25-year-old is unlikely to play Sunday. Leading the NFL with seven interceptions, Howard is the most valuable piece of an otherwise lackluster Miami defense. His absence would improve the Week 14 outlooks for Tom Brady and Josh Gordon.

Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Absent from practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard (undisclosed) didn't practice Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Howard played all but one snap in the Dolphins' win over the Bills on Sunday. On the play before that, Howard appeared to pull up and then left the field. Going into Week 13, Howard was listed on the injury report with an ankle injury, so it's possible that he re-aggravated that injury -- though nothing specific has been said by the team. More will become clear as more practice reports are released throughout the week.

Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Posts two interceptions again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard logged four tackles (three solo), two passes defended and two interceptions during Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills.

Howard recorded two interceptions for the second straight week, bringing his season total to seven. The 2016 second-round pick will look to log another strong outing against Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 14.
