Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill: Increases throwing during bye
Tannehill (shoulder) has increased his throwing program to include throws up to 50 yards, but it isn't clear if he'll be ready to practice Tuesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Coming out of a Week 11 bye, Tannehill finally seems to have taken a big step forward yet still finds himself in danger of missing another game when the Dolphins travel to Indianapolis on Sunday. Coach Adam Gase will need to see his starting quarterback on the practice field within the next few days to get a better read on the situation as the team prepares for a game with major wild-card implications in the AFC. An official injury report won't be available until Wednesday, but the Dolphins apparently plan to practice Tuesday.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Has chance to play Week 12
Coach Adam Gase said Monday there is a chance Parker (shoulder) plays Week 12 at Indianapolis, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Early reports suggested Parker would miss time while recovering from an AC joint sprain, but he apparently has some chance to avoid a game absence with the help of a Week 11 bye. It would still be wise to view him as no better than 50-50 for Sunday's game in Indianapolis, considering the Dolphins signed Brice Butler last week to provide some depth behind Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Leonte Carroo. Meanwhile, the team hopes to get Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) back in the lineup this week, but it's far from a sure thing.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Undergoing season-ending surgery
Grant will undergo season-ending surgery Monday to address the Achilles injury he sustained in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins have placed Grant on injured reserve, a league source tells Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post.
While the loss of Grant is another hit to the injury-plagued Dolphins, the wideout at least received good news regarding his prognosis. Grant, whose injury was previously labeled as a leg issue by the team, didn't suffer a ruptured Achilles' tendon, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, which will allow him to avoid a full reconstructive surgery that would have necessitated a longer recovery period. Instead, Grant will require a more minor procedure to address the injury, which should put him on track to be 100 percent for the start of training camp next summer. With both Grant and fellow wideout Albert Wilson (hip) now done for the season, Miami will proceed with Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and DeVante Parker (shoulder) as its primary targets at the position....

Dolphins' Brandon Bolden: Yet to log snap on offense
Bolden has not logged an offensive snap this season entering the Dolphins' Week 12 matchup against the Colts.
Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore have done a nice job of avoiding the injury bug this year, so the Dolphins haven't had any need to turn to Bolden on offense. With fourth-round rookie Kalen Ballage the next man up behind them, Bolden faces steep odds of attaining fantasy relevance at any point the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Cameron Wake: Helps sack Aaron Rodgers
Wake recorded three tackles and half of a sack during Sunday's loss to Green Bay.
Wake continues to have his snap counts capped in the mid-thirties and he's consequently been a sack-or-bust fantasy prospect all year. Don't expect that to change in Week 11 against the Colts' strong offensive line.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Lands in South Beach
The Dolphins signed Butler to a contract Wednesday.
Butler gives the Dolphins needed wideout depth with DeVante Parker (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (leg) currently hurting. Even if both receivers are unable to play coming out of the Dolphins' Week 11 bye, Butler will still be behind at least Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola in the pecking order at the position....

Dolphins' Kenny Stills: Primed for heavy usage after bye
Stills is one of three healthy wide receivers on the Miami roster as the team rests up during a Week 11 bye, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
With DeVante Parker (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (Achilles) both expected to miss time after the bye, Stills and Danny Amendola could be awfully busy when the Dolphins travel to Indianapolis in Week 12. Stills already handled a 96 percent offensive snap share in Sunday's 31-12 loss to Green Bay, but he once again failed to get anything going with Brock Osweiler under center, catching two of three targets for 26 yards. While he'll likely draw some extra targets in an offense that may need to use Leonte Carroo as its No. 3 receiver, Stills won't be an easy sell for fantasy lineups unless Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) makes it back for Week 12. Even then, Stills has proven to be a boom-or-bust option over the years, rarely drawing enough targets to produce a useful outing without the help of a touchdown or huge gain.... See More ...

Dolphins' Kiko Alonso: Six tackles in loss
Alonso logged six tackles (three solo) during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Alonso has now recorded 89 tackles on the season. The 28-year old linebacker was ineffective in stopping Green Bay's rushing attack during the Week 10 loss, and logged his second-lowest tackle total of the season. Alonso was questionable to enter Sunday's game due to a lingering ankle injury, and will now benefit from Miami's bye week to get fully healthy.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Records first catch of 2018
Carroo brought in his only target for 20 yards and rushed once for 14 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Carroo received his first offensive snaps (16) of the 2018 season Week 10. With Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve, Carroo appears to have successfully carved out a niche role in Miami's passing attack. While it's unlikely that Carroo will achieve fantasy relevance this season, the former third-round pick's usage is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill: Throws without pain
Tannehill (shoulder) threw without pain Sunday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. "That was the start of their throwing progression after so many off," coach Adam Gase said Monday. "It seemed like it went well. It's not like he's out there throwing 60-yard throws. They have a progression of how they want to do it. They said it was a good first step and he felt good. So that's a positive."
Sunday's session included an unknown number of throws, after which Tannehill didn't feel any discomfort. To date, he's missed five consecutive games with a right shoulder injury related to the capsule that surrounds the joint and rotator cuff tendons. The Dolphins are entering their bye week, so his next chance to return to action is Nov. 25 at Indianapolis. If Tannehill doesn't make the requisite progress, though, Brock Osweiler will continue to direct the offense.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Shoulder injury not season-ending
Parker likely will miss a few weeks, but the AC joint sprain in his left shoulder isn't expected to be season-ending, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Forced from Sunday's eventual loss in Green Bay with a shoulder injury, Parker later left the locker room with his left arm in a sling. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reported Parker will avoid surgery, but it appears the wideout will be sidelined beyond the Dolphins' next game Nov. 25 at Indianapolis following a Week 11 bye. In the meantime, Parker's increased workload of late (22 targets over the last three contests) will be available to the likes of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant (leg)....

Dolphins' Mike Gesicki: Catches only target in loss
Gesicki brought in his only target during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Gesicki saw less offensive snaps (20) than fellow tight ends A.J. Derby and Nick O'Leary, and received only one target for the second straight week. It's hard to imagine the rookie second-round pick putting up big numbers while splitting snaps in Miami's mediocre passing offense, but Gesicki remains a key part of the Dolphins' plans for the future....

Dolphins' A.J. Derby: Leads tight ends in targets Week 10
Derby caught one of two targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Derby returned to the field for the first time since Week 3, and led Miami's tight end group in both offensive snaps (30) and targets. It appears that Derby is the No. 1 tight end in the Dolphins' lackluster offense, but he's nonetheless unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance while sharing time with Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Nick O'Leary: One target in loss
O'Leary brought in his only target for five yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
O'Leary logged his lowest offensive snap count of the season (21) with A.J. Derby healthy for the first time since Week 3. It appears that O'Leary will split tight-end targets down the middle with Derby and Mike Gesicki in Miami's already-limited passing attack, so it's difficult to imagine O'Leary possessing weekly fantasy relevance going forward....

Dolphins' Jakeem Grant: Avoids major injury
Grant (leg) won't require surgery and is considered week-to-week with the expectation that he'll play again this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant's season appeared to be in jeopardy after the receiver pulled up lame while running a route during Sunday's loss to the Packers. Fortunately, it appears Grant avoided any sort of long-term injury -- including a severe aggravation of the Achilles injury he entered the game with, which many feared could be the case. With the Dolphins on bye Week 11, it's possible Grant may not even need to miss a game. Considering DeVante Parker (shoulder) can also be considered questionable for Miami's Week 12 matchup against Indianapolis, Leonte Carroo could be headed for a heightened role for a game or two....

Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Week-to-week with shoulder sprain
Parker (shoulder) will not require surgery and is considered week-to-week with a sprained AC joint, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
This is arguably one of the better scenarios the Dolphins could've asked for after Parker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to Green Bay with a shoulder injury and subsequently spotted after the game sporting a sling on his left arm. While it isn't clear how much time Parker may need to recover, it's possible he won't have to miss a game with Miami on bye Week 11. However, if Parker isn't able to play in time for the Dolphins' Week 12 bout with the Colts, Miami may need to lean heavily on Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola to fuel its passing game....
