Howard (illness) is officially active for Sunday's division matchup with the Bills.
Howard was listed as questionable but seemed on track to play given his practice work this week. The 24-year-old should slot in as the Dolphins' top cornerback Sunday, with Cordrea Tankersley (ankle, shouler) inactive and will hope to extend his interception streak to three games.
Howard (illness) is listed a questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.
Howard returned to practice without limitations Friday after sitting out to start the week, making him seem likely to play despite the questionable tag. The 24-year-old has two interceptions in each of the past two games, and the Dolphins can ill afford to be without him with rookie Cordrea Tankersley (ankle, shoulder) listed as doubtful.
Howard recorded two interceptions in Monday night's 27-20 victory over the Patriots.
Howard did not have a tackle in the game, but that was the direct result of his blanket coverage on Brandin Cooks, who was held without a reception until the closing minutes of the game. The second-year cornerback has two interceptions in each of the last two games and will hope to victimize Tyrod Taylor and the Bills similarly in Week 15.
The Dolphins aren't holding an official practice two days after their Monday night victory over the Patriots, but it appears Howard likely would have sat out if the team had convened Wednesday. Unless the cornerback is unable to practice by the end of the week, Howard should be available for Sunday's game against the Bills. He's been outstanding in coverage the past two weeks, racking up four interceptions, eight pass breakups and a touchdown.
Howard had one solo tackle, five pass breakups and two interceptions, running one back for a touchdown, in Sunday's win over the Broncos.
This was an unprecedented performance for the second-year pro, as he had just four pass breakups and zero interceptions in the 11 games prior. Howard likely will be brought back to reality against Tom Brady and the Patriots in Week 14.
