Coach Adam Gase confirmed Thursday that Gray is out for the year, which sets the stage for rookie Mike Gesicki to carve out a significant role as a pass catcher in the Miami offense, while A.J. Derby should factor in on that front as well.
Gesicki remains behind fellow tight end A.J. Derby, who reeled in his only target for a touchdown. It was expected for Gesicki to have a limited role to begin the season, and it wouldn't be surprising if the 22-year-old were unable to achieve fantasy relevance in his rookie year given the length of time it generally takes to acclimate to the NFL at his position. Gesicki's usage should nonetheless increase as the season continues, and the rookie remains a key part of Miami's plans for the future.
The Dolphins are beat up on the offensive line, which necessitates Davis' move from left guard to right tackle. How he handles the position switch will go a long way towards determining the success of the Miami offense Monday.
Howard returned to practice without limitations Friday after sitting out to start the week, making him seem likely to play in Week 15, despite the questionable tag. The Dolphins can ill afford to be without the services of the 24-year-old, who has four interceptions over the past two games, with rookie cornerback Cordrea Tankersley (ankle/shoulder) listed as doubtful.
Wilson also logged two carries for eight yards, mostly serving as a rotational wideout. Outside of his biggest play, a 29-yard touchdown catch, Wilson had a quiet day. The 26-year-old's upside is limited as long as the Dolphins continue to run a low-volume passing offense, with quarterback Ryan Tannehill attempting only 23 passes Week 2.
Ford seems to be over the shoulder injury he sustained in training camp, but the 2017 seventh-rounder still has work to do in order to make the final 53-man roster in Miami. His next chance to impress will come in next week's preseason game Saturday against the Ravens.
Sanders was perfect while scoring nine points in Week 1, so he'll be disappointed by Sunday's letdown on his third and final extra-point opportunity. The rookie will look to clean things up this weekend versus the Raiders.
McEvoy has now been on three teams in the past week since initially being waived by the Seahawks. McEvoy proved to be a utility guy capable of playing multiple positions, but it's unclear as of now how the Dolphins plan on using him or if they plan on keeping him for their 53-man roster.
Spence showed he can be a valuable asset as a situational pass rusher for the Lions, but he also frustratingly committed six penalties this term. While the Illinois product has never been of much utility in IDP formats, Spence could be headed for the largest workload of his career in 2018 if Haloti Ngata (biceps) either retires or leaves in free agency.
Though Branch didn't specify what part of the body required surgery, it's believed the procedure addressed the knee injury that forced him to miss time during the 2017 season. After signing a three-year, $24 million contract prior to last season, Branch was a disappointment while playing through the knee issue, producing 4.5 sacks and 23 tackles in 14 games. It's expected that the surgery will put the 28-year-old at full strength by the time training camp commences.
Drake opened the scoring with a six-yard touchdown run, and he topped out at 20 yards on his longest carry. Frank Gore once again cut into Drake's workload with 10 touches of his own, but Drake has been explosive enough to stay productive, despite ceding about 40 percent of the work to Gore through two weeks.
Brendel has been dealing with a calf injury for almost the entirety of the preseason, but if he can get healthy, there is a chance the Dolphins could activate him after eight games.
Despite Parker seemingly having moved past the fractured right middle finger, it appears the coaching staff isn't fully confident he's capable of making his usual impact in games. Though Parker has reportedly looked good in his recent practice sessions -- which included a full workout Wednesday -- Gase cited the 25-year-old's lackluster training camp as a reason behind his murky outlook for the weekend, per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post. If Parker can put in another quality practice session Friday, it may be enough to convince the Dolphins to make him active this week. Even in that scenario, however, it's uncertain that Parker would see a sizable snap count.
From a fantasy standpoint, Bolden will be behind listed co-starters Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore, as well as Sinorice Perry and rookie Kalen Ballage. The former New England Patriot will, however, add versatility to the Miami backfield, plus he's made a name for himself as an outstanding special teams player.
Despite the fact that McMillan never made his regular season debut with the Dolphins last season after tearing his ACL in August, the team is committed to him being its starting middle linebacker given what they've seen from him before and after his injury. McMillan was a second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after a standout career at Ohio State.
Derby and Mike Gesicki essentially split the playing time at tight end down the middle, with the former logging 34 offensive snaps to the rookie's 33. Despite the even distribution, it was Derby who was the more active pass catcher of the two, as Gesicki didn't draw a single target in the contest. Though Derby is listed as the top tight end on the Dolphins' unofficial depth chart, he'll probably need to take on a larger portion of the snaps and draw more targets before becoming an appealing option in most fantasy leagues.
Smith will occupy the open roster spot created by Josh Sitton's (shoulder) placement on injured reserve. The second-year safety played a rotational role in six games for the Dolphins last season, and will serve as a depth safety and special teams option going forward. Miami can make an addition to its practice squad after promoting Smith.
Aikens provides the Dolphins with some veteran depth in the secondary as he has spent his entire four-year career in Miami. In 16 games last season, Aikens recorded nine tackles (six solo) and one forced fumble.
Asiata will return to his role as Jermon Bushrod's backup at right guard.
Osweiler beat out David Fales to work as a backup to Tannehill, who is returning form a torn ACL and making his first appearance since 2016. Osweiler suited up for six games in Denver last season, completing 56 percent of his passes for 1,088 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions.
McDonald additionally played 12 snaps on special teams, logging another tackle. The 27-year-old seems locked into the free safety starting role across strong safety Reshad Jones, who nabbed two interceptions Sunday. McDonald should continue to reliably accumulate tackles Week 2 against the Jets.
The severity of Phillips' injury is unclear, but the team hasn't expressed much concern to this point. Look for Gabe Wright and Jamiyus Pittman to get extra reps while Phillips is sidelined.
Harris, the 22nd overall pick in the draft, is expected to provide the Dolphins with an additional pass-rushing threat, but may not see a full snap load in 2017. As the depth chart currently shakes out, Harris is expected to work as the primary backup to fellow defensive ends Cameron Wake and Andre Branch.
Swanson, who was waived by Miami last week, rejoined the team following an injury to John Denney (shoulder) in Week 1's matchup against the Titans. The former third-round pick will work to stick with the 53-man roster this time around.
Woodard didn't see the field last season after tearing his Achilles in the Jaguars' offseason program. His extended run in the preseason suggests he has a strong chance of earning a backup slot with the club.
Grant has been primarily limited to underneath routes through two weeks but showed he has the ability to burn opponents during his Week 1 return for a touchdown. The diminutive receiver leads the team in targets through two weeks but may face the squeeze upon DeVante Parker's (finger) forthcoming return to the lineup.
The move to ship Kilgore to Miami is a bit puzzling, considering the 49ers inked him to three-year extension back in February. However, they did sign Weston Richburg to a five-year deal on Wednesday, who has played guard and center the past three seasons. Kilgore figures to slide into the starting center role immediately after the Dolphins parted ways with Mike Pouncey.
Petty is battling David Fales and Brock Osweiler to be Ryan Tannehill's backup, so getting healthy for Saturday's exhibition game against the Ravens is crucial for his chances. The fourth-year pro has completed nine of 13 passes for 111 yards, one touchdown and one interception through two preseason games.
This was a special day for Gore, who passed Curtis Martin for fourth on the NFL's all-time rushing list. Otherwise, Gore was out-touched 15-10 by Kenyan Drake, who got into the end zone from six yards out in this one. The veteran running back's lone catch was a huge one, as he picked up just enough on a 3rd-and-19 checkdown late in the fourth quarter. Miami subsequently gained one more first down and ran out the clock.
Tankersley has missed back-to-back games due to an ankle injury, and the Dolphins may elect to continue proceeding cautiously with their rookie cornerback in Week 16. If he's held out, Bobby McCain and Alterraun Verner would likely see additional snaps alongside starter Xavien Howard.
O'Leary spent the last three seasons with the Bills but failed to make the final 53-man roster for 2018. Since starter MarQueis Gray suffered a torn Achilles, the Dolphins have been using a three-tight end committee, so O'Leary could ultimately become a viable option for the team should Miami continue to struggle with production at the position this season.
Anthony was essentially a non-factor in limited snaps during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers, while the team has elected to give their third-round rookie (Baker) a chance at securing a starting job at outside linebacker. Anthony exhibits a larger frame than Baker, but the latter has shown playmaking ability and speed in coverage situations.
The Leonte Carroo experiment continues in Miami after the Rutgers product went unclaimed on waivers over the weekend.
Fales was beaten out by Brock Osweiler for the backup job behind Ryan Tannehill. It looked like Fales was outplaying Osweiler through most of training camp and preseason, but the Dolphins appear to be more comfortable having a backup with significant starting experience.
The trade can't officially go through until March 14 when the new league year begins. The Rams figure to recoup some of the draft capital they lost in the recent trade for CB Marcus Peters, also clearing up cap room as they prepare to sign DT Aaron Donald to a massive contract. A 2011 first-round selection, Quinn has struggled to stay healthy since piling up 40 sacks from 2012 to 2014, but he did bounce back to some extent with 8.5 sacks in 15 games in 2017. An outside linebacker under Wade Phillips last year, Quinn presumably will move back to defensive end in Miami.
Fitzpatrick, this year's 11th overall pick, has lived up to his draft slotting this preseason. The 21-year-old is in line to replace Bobby McCain as Miami's starting nickelback and seems capable of playing on all three downs, considering he seems to be holding his ground in the running game.
Alonso has been in typical form thus far this season, nearly averaging double-digit tackles. He's a reliable run and pass defender, and his 19 solo tackles through two weeks showcases his ability to take people down in the open field. He'll look to maintain the strong play as Miami hosts the Raiders in Week 3.
The rookie won't suit up against the Titans, who picked him in the sixth round of April's draft. Instead, Brock Osweiler will serve as Ryan Tannehill's backup.
The 6-foot-9, 325-pound Sterup had been a member of the Browns' practice squad. His signing comes on the heels of Ja'Wuan James, one of the Dolphins' starting tackles, having suffered a hamstring injury in Sunday's loss to the Raiders. Sterup likely would dress for the Dolphins' Week 10 game against the Panthers if James is unable to play in that contest.
The decision to put Hull on the IR shouldn't come as a major surprise since the linebacker suffered an MCL injury the first week of the preseason. Still, he will be eligible to return halfway through the season if he can get back to full health.
Perry was productive despite a small workload Thursday, amassing 45 total yards and a score on just six touches out of the backfield. The 26-year-old is looking to prove himself as more than just a special teamer in Miami. His performance thus far has certainly improved his chances of making the 53-man roster as the No. 4 running back behind Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and Kalen Ballage.
James was sidelined Wednesday due to what is now being reported as a muscle strain, but it looks like it was a very minor issue. He's expected to return to participating in team drills Thursday.
With the signing of the extension, McCain made himself the league's highest paid nickelback. The defensive back is coming off a career-best season in 2017, when he recorded 48 total tackles, two interceptions and one sack. The contract locks McCain in with the Dolphins through 2022.
Sitton was already declared out for the season with a torn rotator cuff and is set to undergo surgery in the near future to address the issue. Ted Larsen will step in at left guard for the Dolphins.
Wake is one sack away from marking a double-digit sack performance for the fifth time in eight seasons. He has a favorable matchup with the Bills on Sunday, as QB Tyrod Taylor has been sacked on 9.7 percent of his dropbacks -- the second worst in the league.
No Dolphins receiver topped 40 yards in this one, as Miami capitalized on New York's turnovers and scored on short fields without generating much yardage. Albert Wilson scored a 29-yard touchdown, but Stills should still be treated as Miami's top wideout moving forward.
Kenyon Drake and Frank Gore are listed as the Dolphins' co-starters at running back and reserves Senorise Perry and Brandon Bolden are likely both slated for important roles on special teams, so there was no need for Miami to keep Ballage active as a fifth member of the backfield. The rookie out of Arizona State dealt with a concussion during the preseason that robbed him of two opportunities to impress the coaching staff, but if he shines in practices during the upcoming weeks, Ballage could make a case for being included in the Dolphins' game plans.
Jackson, coming off a gruesome knee injury that landed him on injured reserve at the end of last season, appears to be back in full force. Entering his second season, Jackson is not a lock to make the final roster, but a strong camp has certainly helped his case moving forward.
Jones was a limited participant at practice Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session with the shoulder injury. Walt Aikens and rookie Minkah Fitzpatrick could both see increased snap counts if Jones is ultimately ruled out Sunday.
Amendola exited Sunday's game after receiving a hit from Jets safety Jamal Adams, but reportedly was not concussed. The 32-year-old has sustained at least three concussions in his NFL career. Amendola managed to log a team-high four catches for 32 yards Week 2, despite being sidelined for a significant amount of time.
Tannehill guided his team to a 20-0 halftime lead with touchdown passes of 29 yards to Albert Wilson and 19 yards to A.J. Derby. He lost a fumble deep in his own territory after New York cut it to 20-6 in the third quarter, but Jets quarterback Sam Darnold promptly gave the ball right back with an interception in the end zone. The former college wide receiver put the game away with his legs, rushing for first downs with carries of 14 and eight yards as Miami ran out the clock on the final drive.
Scott reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers at roster cutdowns. The severity of the ankle issue remains unclear, but the 26-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere.
Hayes shared snaps in Week 1 against the Titans, logging 32, while starter Cameron Wake played 38. Still, Hayes didn't make a tackle, so his IDP value is negligible at this time.
