  • Dolphins' Will Fuller: Not spotted at practice

    Fuller wasn't spotted during the media-access portion of Thursday's practice, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Fuller wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, so added clarity with regard to his Week 2 status should arrive no later the release of the Dolphins' upcoming Thursday report. The wideout, who missed the team's season opener, was reinstated from the reserve/suspended list Monday.

  • Dolphins' Austin Jackson: Back to normal

    Jackson (illness) is reported to be "back to normal."

    Jackson tested positive for Covid and hit the Dolphins' COVID-19 list the week before Miami's season opener. Fortunately for the left tackle, Jackson was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday and then was able to play Sunday in Miami's win over New England. It now seems that Jackson will be a full participant in practice and should be able to play again Sunday against the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Preston Williams: Limited at practice

    Williams (foot) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Williams was limited in practice all of last week before sitting out Miami's season-opening win over New England. Even if he suits up Sunday against the Bills, he would presumably be behind DeVante Parker, Jaylen Waddle and Will Fuller in the pecking order at receiver.

  • Dolphins' Adam Shaheen: Limited in return to practice

    Shaheen was limited at practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Though he was lifted from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Shaheen is evidently dealing with an injury ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills. Once available, Shaheen will bolster a Miami tight end corps that also features Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe.

  • Dolphins' Will Fuller: Uncertain role for Week 2

    Dolphins head coach Brian Flores admitted Wednesday that he isn't sure what Fuller's role will look like for Sunday's game against the Bills, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

    Fuller missed nearly all of training camp with a foot injury, but he returned to practice in late August before serving the final game of a six-game suspension in Week 1. While a full-time role for Fuller right out of the gate wouldn't exactly surprise, Miami has enough depth to ease him into action without sacrificing too much on the field. DeVante Parker, Jaylen Waddle and Albert Wilson were the team's top three wideouts in the Week 1 win over New England, combining for eight receptions for 142 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets.

  • Dolphins' Adam Shaheen: Off COVID list

    The Dolphins activated Shaheen (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday.

    Shaheen is slated to practice Wednesday and should be available for Sunday's game against the Bills. It's possible that he could see some looks in two-tight end sets this weekend, but with Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe ahead of him on the depth chart, Shaheen likely won't be in line for steady volume in the passing game.

  • Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: No targets Week 1

    Grant played just seven offensive snaps and didn't record a target during Sunday's win over the Patriots.

    Grant appeared in 14 games last season for the Dolphins and recorded 36 receptions for 373 yards -- both career-highs. He suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 16 last year, but he appeared healthy coming into training camp. Grant's role in the 2021 offense remains unclear after the Dolphins added Will Fuller and Jaylen Waddle to their receiving corps this offseason.

  • Dolphins' Eric Rowe: Forces fumble in win

    Rowe had nine tackles (six solo) and a forced fumble during Sunday's 17-16 win over the Patriots.

    The 28-year-old delivered a key takeaway during the first quarter when he stripped the ball from Rhamondre Stevenson, and he also finished second on the team in tackles. Rowe set a career high with 91 total tackles last year, and he's off to a strong start toward raising that figure again in 2021.

  • Dolphins' Jerome Baker: Racks up 12 tackles

    Baker recorded 12 tackles (eight solo) during Sunday's 17-16 win over the Patriots.

    Baker played all but one defensive snap and led Miami in tackles during the season opener. The 24-year-old inked a three-year, $39 million extension over the summer and is poised for another 100-plus tackle campaign for the Dolphins if he remains healthy, making him a strong IDP option.

  • Dolphins' Albert Wilson: No receptions in win

    Wilson did not have a reception on two targets in Sunday's 17-16 win over New England.

    Wilson had the fewest targets of any Dolphins receiver in the contest. Even with fellow wideout Will Fuller (suspension) missing the season opener, Wilson was unable to capitalize and only played on 41 percent of the team's offensive snaps. The 29-year-old's snap count is likely to fall even further as Fuller makes his return to the field in Week 2. Wilson will be hard pressed to find much playing time in three-wide sets while Fuller, DeVante Parker, and Jaylen Waddle are healthy.

  • Dolphins' Jason Sanders: Perfect in opener

    Sanders made his only field-goal attempt as well as both of his extra-point tries in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Patriots.

    Sanders converted from 48 yards on his lone field-goal opportunity, which helped the Dolphins squeak out a narrow road victory. After tying for fourth in points among kickers last season, Sanders will aim to continue his momentum in Week 2 versus the Bills.
