Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
Gray recorded one reception for 10 yards (on two targets) and 14 rushing yards on five attempts in 2017.

Gray was never a significant part of the offensive gameplan, as most of his work came as a blocker on special teams. However, we saw him tote the rock for the first time since his rookie year, so his offensive role did evolve to some degree. Gray remains under contract with Miami in 2018 but, as usual, shouldn't be counted on to emerge as a fantasy contributor.

Jesse Davis
Davis is likely to start at right tackle in the Dolphins' Week 11 matchup against Carolina, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins website reports.

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.

Tony Lippett
Lippett (Achilles) is expected to be back to full strength for the start of the Dolphins' offseason program in the spring, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Lippett was sidelined for the entire 2017 campaign after rupturing his Achilles' tendon in August. Assuming Lippett endures no setbacks in the final stages of his recovery from the major injury, he'll provide a boost to a promising young cadre of cornerbacks that also includes Xavien Howard, Cordrea Tankersley and Bobby McCain. Lippett, a 2015 fifth-round pick out of Michigan State, registered 67 tackles and four interceptions across 16 games in his second NFL season in 2016.

Achilles - Questionable for the start of training camp
Koa Misi
Misi (neck) was placed on the Dolphins' injured reserve list Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Misi, who underwent season-ending neck surgery in 2016, recently failed a test that would've declared him healthy enough to play in 2017 if passed. The Dolphins selected Raekwon McMillan in the second round of this year's draft, so he'll now have a more direct route to playing time as a rookie with Misi likely sidelined for the year. It's an unfortunate series of events for the 30-year-old veteran, while it remains to be seen if Misi will ever be able to return to his original level of play.

Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Xavien Howard
Howard (illness) is listed a questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, James Walker of reports.

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.

Albert Wilson
Wilson signed a three-year, $24 million contract with Miami on Thursday.

The 25-year-old receiver will help fill the void created by the departure of Jarvis Landry, who was traded to Cleveland. Wilson is coming off of a 42-catch, three-touchdown season in which he totaled 554 yards for the Chiefs. The Dolphins also signed Danny Amendola in free agency and retain DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills, so Wilson could be a hit-or-miss fantasy option when all the team's top wideouts are healthy.

Isaiah Ford
Ford (knee) is on schedule to return for the Dolphins' offseason program, Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel reports.

Ford fell into Miami's lap in the seventh round of the 2017 draft, likely due to his disappointing performance at last year's combine. However, the lanky receiver injured his meniscus prior to training camp and wasn't available to play at any point during his rookie season. He was seen running in December, though, and appears to have avoided any setbacks in his recovery. With Jarvis Landry an unrestricted free agent and Leonte Carroo's (undisclosed) health a question mark, Ford is a name to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy formats ahead of the 2018 campaign given his production at the collegiate level, where he caught 154 passes for 2,258 yards and 18 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Virginia Tech.

Knee - Meniscus - Questionable for the start of training camp
Anthony Fasano
Fasano is undecided if he will return for the 2018 season, Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Fasano, now 34 years old, is set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year but is strongly considering retirement in the name of his long-term health. However, the veteran has never been much of a fantasy factor and that remained true with the Dolphins this year, as he only caught 12 of 16 targets for 107 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. He'd almost certainly remain a blocking specialist if he does return for a 13th professional season in 2018.

Jermon Bushrod
The Saints signed Bushrod to a one-year contract Friday, Mike Triplett of reports.

Bushrod underwent surgery on his right arm in January but doesn't expect to have any issues for the 2018 season. The 33-year-old was also sidelined the final six games of 2017 with a foot injury.

Arm - Questionable for the start of training camp
Sean Hickey
No Updates
Michael Thomas
Thomas (undisclosed) landed on the Dolphins' injured reserve list Friday.

Thomas' season will end with a final count of 27 tackles (16 solo) and one pass defended. In his absence, Trae Elston has been promoted to the team's active roster to help provide depth at strong safety.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Andre Branch
Branch said Saturday that he's "ahead of schedule" in his recovery from Jan. 31 surgery to address an unspecified knee injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Branch called the surgery "much needed" after the knee injury proved to be a hindrance during the 2017 season, with the defensive end regressing to 23 tackles and 4.5 sacks in 14 games after producing 49 stops and 5.5 sacks over 16 games in his first campaign in South Florida. Though the 29-year-old was non-committal when asked if he would take part in the Dolphins' offseason program, he's not expected to face many restrictions by the time training camp opens.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Ted Larsen
Larsen (biceps) is officially active for Monday night's game against the Panthers.

Larsen was activated off injured reserve Saturday after returning to practice last week. The 30-year-old is expected to start at left guard for the Dolphins.

Kenyan Drake
Drake rushed 14 times for 75 yards and brought in all three of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 22-16 loss to the Bills. He was ultimately ejected from the game with 6:16 remaining in the fourth quarter due to his part in a fight following a Jarvis Landry one-yard touchdown.

Drake was enjoying his fifth consecutive productive effort as a starter before getting embroiled in a post-play scuffle following Landry's score. The second-year running back was eventually pinned to the ground by defensive end Ryan Davis before managing to get back to his feet and heaving the latter's helmet toward the sideline. The entirety of his actions earned him an ejection, but despite the unsightly end to his season, there's plenty of reason for optimism heading into 2018. Drake logged a pair of 100-yard rushing efforts and 444 rushing yards over his five-game stint as a clear-cut lead back to wrap up the season, and his steady presence in the passing game only serves to further his fantasy stock, particularly in keeper and dynasty formats.

Damien Williams
Williams underwent surgery following the season to repair a separated left shoulder, which had prevented him from playing in the Dolphins' final five games, Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Williams sustained the injury Week 12 against the Patriots and was initially hopeful to play through the issue the rest of the season, but the Dolphins' team doctors refused to clear him. The running back said that by opting for surgery, he'll be at less risk of separating his shoulder again, though the procedure will likely result him facing some restrictions or being unavailable entirely until team minicamps open. It remains to be seen if Williams, who will become an unrestricted free agent March 14, will return to Miami next season, as he may prefer to join a team with a more unsettled running-back situation that would give him a legitimate chance to compete for a starting job. Kenyan Drake seems to have a stranglehold on the No. 1 role in Miami after amassing 851 total yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.0 yards per carry in the Dolphins' final nine games of 2017.

Shoulder - Questionable for the start of training camp
Jake Brendel
No Updates
DeVante Parker
Parker will face more pressure to produce with Jarvis Landry leaving Miami, Sean Wagner-McGough reports.

The 2015 first-round pick has shown flashes of living up to his draft status, most notably closing out his rookie season with 286 yards the final three weeks. He also enjoyed a strong start and decent finish in 2017, but had just two games with more than 26 yards from Weeks 5 through 14, in part due to an ankle injury and poor quarterback play. Landry's exit from Miami frees up a boatload of targets, and the return of Ryan Tannehill (knee) and hiring of offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains could also be positive developments for the 25-year-old Parker. The Dolphins will soon need to make a decision regarding the fifth-year option on his rookie contract.

Matt Moore
Moore is slated to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, the Miami Herald reports.

The report suggests that Moore is inclined to explore other options in order to see if he could be a better fit with another franchise. The veteran quarterback, who has been with the Dolphins since 2011, is said to have been disappointed with the team's decision to replace injured starter Ryan Tannehill with Jay Cutler, rather than hand the offense over to Moore. It's still possible that Moore -- who turns 34 in August -- re-signs with Miami, but it wouldn't surprise us if the team elects to draft a young signal-caller to develop behind Tannehill, who is currently under contract through the 2020 season.

De'Veon Smith
Smith was not tendered by the Dolphins and has become an unrestricted free agent, Alain Poupart of the team's official site reports.

Smith went undrafted out of Michigan in 2017 and was on and off with the Dolphins throughout his rookie season, getting waived and subsequently re-signed twice before season's end. He ultimately finished the year having appeared in five games but never received a rushing attempt in his limited offensive action. Just 23 years old, Smith has youth on his side and should be able to land another contract this offseason with a team in need of running back depth.

Raekwon McMillan
McMillan (knee) is on schedule in his recovery, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. "He's right on, or ahead of schedule," Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said Wednesday. "That's from the coaching staff, the trainers. He's in the meetings all the time. Just talking about how he is and how his approach has been. He should be out there and ready to go in May, out there doing everything and 100 percent."

McMillan, the Dolphins' 2017 second-round draft pick, lost his entire rookie season to a torn ACL suffered in Miami's preseason opener. The bright side of this situation is that, given the timing of the injury, McMillan shouldn't need to miss any part of the offseason program.

Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
A.J. Derby
Derby finished the season with 21 receptions for 244 yards and two touchdowns in 11 games.

Derby began the season with the Broncos, for whom he recorded 19 receptions, 220 receiving yards and both of his touchdowns in nine games. However, he was then waived midseason, claimed by the Dolphins, and didn't see game action again until the second-to-last week of the season. Derby didn't hit the ground running with his new team, as he caught just two of nine targets for 20 yards in his two appearances with Miami. With that said, he remains under contract through the 2018 campaign and, with veteran Anthony Fasano contemplating retirement, could possibly return as No. 2 on the depth chart, depending on what the team does in the draft and free agency.

Maurice Smith
Smith has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Broncos with an abdominal injury.

Smith didn't practice this week after sitting out the Week 12 loss to the Patriots. The 22-year-old has one tackle this season, seeing most of his snaps on special teams when he has played.

Abdomen - Questionable for the start of training camp
Anthony Steen
Steen (foot) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Steen suffered the injury two weeks ago in the Dolphins' win over the Jets but had been unable to practice since. With Steen now likely done for the year, Jesse Davis is expected to continue starting at left guard.

Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
Walt Aikens
Aikens will sign a two-year extension with the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Isaac Asiata
Asiata (ankle) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report and will be available Sunday against the Titans barring any setbacks, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports

Asiata will return to his role as Jermon Bushrod's backup at right guard.

Jay Cutler
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that he didn't expect Cutler to return to the team in 2018, the Associated Press reports.

Gase was able to lure Cutler from the Fox broadcast booth in September to serve as the Dolphins' starter in 2017, but with franchise quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee) on the mend and expected back for the start of next season, the 34-year-old signal caller's marriage with Miami was never bound to be a long-term one. Cutler is set to become a free agent this offseason and has stated that he would entertain keeping his playing career going elsewhere if he's given the opportunity to start, but it's unclear if other teams would be interested in bringing him aboard in that capacity. With a 19:14 TD:INT ratio, 62 percent completion rate and 80.8 passer rating across his 14 starts this past season, Cutler was a below-average starter league-wide.

T.J. McDonald
McDonald said Saturday that he was confident that he would complete his court-mandated obligations stemming from his plea deal for a May 2016 DUI arrest before the start of the 2018 season, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. "I'm in the process of doing all of my community service and making sure I knock everything out," McDonald said.

The terms of McDonald's probation for the DUI arrest required him to complete 200 hours of community service and a three-month alcohol program, but a report surfaced in January that the veteran safety hadn't met either of those conditions. The courts granted him an extension to complete the obligations before he's scheduled to appear in front of a judge again in March, and it appears the offseason has opened up more free time for get himself back in good legal standing. After inking a lucrative four-year contract extension with Miami last September, McDonald should be locked into a starting role in 2018.

Lawrence Timmons
The Dolphins released Timmons on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

After spending a decade in Pittsburgh to begin his career, Timmons found new home in Miami last offseason. The marriage got off to a rocky start when he went AWOL in Week 2, which spurred a one-game suspension. Upon his return Week 4, he proceeded to rank among the Dolphins' leading tacklers, finishing the campaign with 84, his fewest since 2009. A reunion with the Steelers is possible, but his old spot on the strong side is currently occupied by dynamic second-year linebacker T.J. Watt. In the end, Timmons' new employer will determine whether he'll continue to churn out tackles during his age-32 season.

Jordan Phillips
Phillips (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Ravens.

Phillips ultimately played after being listed as questionable with an ankle injury heading into the last couple of contests, and he will keep that streak alive Thursday. Barring any setbacks, the 25-year-old figures to take on his usual workload at defensive tackle.

Charles Harris
Harris (undisclosed) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

It's still not clear what was ailing Harris, but he'll be ready to fill in when necessary Sunday. The rookie first-round pick has 19 tackles (15 solo) and two sacks through 15 games this season, so until he can make a move up the depth chart in 2018 he won't be a viable IDP asset.

Taveze Calhoun
Calhoun was promoted to the active roster Saturday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

Calhoun hasn't played a professional snap, but that could change Sunday against the Falcons since the Saints are dealing with a hefty amount of injuries to their secondary. The rookie received the promotion because Ken Crawley (kneecap) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Matt Haack
No Updates
Brandon Radcliff
The Dolphins signed Radcliff to a reserve/future contract Tuesday.

Radcliff spent the preseason with the Titans before ultimately being let go prior to the start of the regular season. He eventually signed with the Dolphins' practice squad on Nov. 29. The Miami native will look to impress during offseason workouts and earn a spot on the 53-man roster heading into next season.

Jonathan Woodard
Woodard played 30 snaps in the Jaguars' preseason opener against the Patriots, recording three tackles in the game.

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.

Cameron Malveaux
No Updates
Sam Young
Young resigned with the Dolphins on Sunday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Young returns to Miami after the team placed guard Ted Larsen (biceps) on injured reserve. After joining the team in late October, Young played in eight games last season for the Dolphins, including one start.

Jakeem Grant
Grant finished the 2017 season with 13 catches on 22 targets for 203 yards and two touchdowns in 16 games.

The 2016 sixth-rounder was introduced to the Miami offense this past season, after working as a special teamer as a rookie. The 25-year-old brings plenty of speed to the table, and he has to at 5-foot-7, 169 pounds. While Grant was not much of a fantasy factor in 2017, he did have a big game Week 16, hauling in four of his six targets for 107 yards (including a 65-yard TD) in a loss to the Chiefs. Looking ahead, it's not hard to imagine the Dolphins finding ways to take more deep shots in Grant's direction in 2018, but volume will probably remain an issue for the speedster.

Daniel Kilgore
Kilgore was traded to the Dolphins along with 2018 seventh-round pick in exchange for the 49ers 2018 seventh-round pick, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

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.

Thomas Duarte
The Dolphins promoted Duarte from their practice squad Wednesday.

Duarte will give the Dolphins another healthy option at tight end after Julius Thomas (foot) was moved to injured reserve, likely slotting in as the fourth man on the depth chart. Unless the Dolphins suffer another injury at the position, it's difficult to see Duarte suiting up for the Dolphins over the team's final two games.

Trae Elston
The Dolphins claimed Elston off waivers Friday.

Elston was waived by the Bills on Thursday, but found a new home quickly. Mainly a special teams contributor in Buffalo, he figures to do the same for the Dolphins, as well as provide depth at strong safety, not to mention the coaching staff might pick his brain a bit for some pregame strategy since Elston's new team squares off against his previous employer Sunday.

Gabe Wright
The Dolphins promoted Wright from their practice squad Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Wright replaces fellow defensive tackle Vincent Taylor (knee), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. It's expected that Wright, who has appeared in 12 NFL games with the Lions and Browns since turning pro in 2015, will work in a depth role for the Dolphins in their season finale against Buffalo.

Cordrea Tankersley
Tankersley (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Stephone Anthony
Anthony (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Anthony was able to play in Week 11's game against the Bucs, but he was limited to only 21 total snaps. He's in line to play Sunday against the Patriots, yet he isn't slated for many snaps behind Kiko Alonso.

Leonte Carroo
The Dolphins placed Carroo on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list Wednesday after the receiver required an emergency medical procedure Christmas Day, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The nature of Carroo's procedure hasn't been revealed, but the report notes that it wasn't a life-threatening situation and the 23-year-old is expected to make a full recovery. After seeing only light work as a rookie, Carroo wasn't able to carve out more consistent snaps with the Dolphins in his second season, as he finished the 2017 campaign with just seven catches for 69 yards across 14 games. The Dolphins promoted Rashawn Scott from the practice squad to take Carroo's spot as the No. 5 wideout on the roster.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Neville Hewitt
Hewitt (shoulder) was waived by Miami on Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

This move was somewhat of a surprise as the Dolphins are woefully thin at linebacker after Kiko Alonso and Lawrence Timmons. Perhaps the shoulder injury is more bothersome than they have let on or perhaps they will sign him at the conclusion of Week 1 when they won't have to guarantee his salary for the entire season.

Drew Morgan
Morgan signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Morgan was waived at roster cutdowns in September and spent the 2017 season on the Dolphins' practice squad. The 23-year-old made a solid impression in his rookie training camp and should only improve as he enters the team's offseason program.

Julius Thomas
Thomas (foot) was officially released by the Dophins on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

As expected, the Dolphins cut Thomas at the beginning of the new league year after he caught 41 of 63 targets for 388 yards and three scores in 14 games in 2017. He only has one season with 500 or more receiving yards on his resume, and he hasn't found any real success since parting ways with the Broncos after the 2014 campaign. Set to turn 30 years old later this offseason, Thomas may struggle to find a starting job on the open market. It's unclear if the foot injury he suffered in December is still a concern.

Foot - Questionable for the start of training camp
David Fales
Fales signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins allowed Fales, who was a restricted free agent, to test the open market this week, but it appears the quarterback was unable to find an attractive offer elsewhere. With Jay Cutler's days in Miami over, Fales will move forward as the No. 2 signal caller behind Ryan Tannehill -- though it's possible the team adds to its quarterback room in the upcoming draft.

Chase Allen
Allen (concussion) isn't listed on the Dolphins' injury report Wednesday.

Allen previously exited Sunday's game against Tampa Bay to be evaluated for a concussion, but it appears he was never placed in the protocol. As a result, he should be good to go for the Week 12 matchup with the Patriots.

Ndamukong Suh
The Dolphins released Suh on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With no trade for the defensive tackle having been arranged, the Dolphins will part ways with Suh, who the team signed to a six-year, $114.38 million contract in March 2015. During his third season with Miami, the 31-year-old logged 48 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in 16 games. Suh will now look to cash in as a free agent once again, given that he's one of the top defensive-line talents on the market.

Robert Quinn
Quinn will be traded to the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Lamin Barrow
Barrow (foot) was released from IR on Monday.

Barrow was waived with an injury designation in the preseason and reverted to IR after clearing waivers. He could latch on with a team in need of special teams help or depth at linebacker.

Undisclosed - Questionable for the start of training camp
Eric Smith
The Dolphins activated Smith (undisclosed) from the physically unable to perform list Wednesday.

It was unclear what type of injury Smith was dealing with, but his activation from the PUP list is imperative to his hopes of making the final roster. The Virginia product is looking to secure a role providing depth on the offensive line.

Kiko Alonso
Alonso (neck) recorded 115 tackles, one sack, one PBU and two forced fumbles across 16 games in 2017.

Alonso matched the 115 tackles he netted in 2016 during his first year with Miami and was very consistent in doing so. In fact, he logged at least seven tackles in 10 of 16 games while reaching double digits in that category twice. The Oregon product remains under contract with the Dolphins for the next three years and should return in 2018 worthy of IDP consideration.

Neck - Questionable for the start of training camp
Zach Sterup
Sterup's agent, Brett Tessler, posted on his personal Twitter account that his client signed with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

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.

Mike Hull
Hull had 35 tackles and a fumble recovery in 16 games for Miami during the 2017 season.

Hull actually started two games at linebacker earlier this season, but he was mainly used on special teams after Week 4. He provides the team with depth at OLB, which is likely where his future lies should he remain with the team.

Mike Pouncey
Pouncey was released by the Dolphins on Thursday.

Pouncy was released prior to the fourth year of his five-year deal with Miami. The team and the veteran guard were unable to workout a restructured deal, leading to Pouncey's release. He'll likely catch on with another team in the near future.

Senorise Perry
Perry gained 30 yards on eight carries and three yards on his one reception across 16 games in 2017. He also gained 202 yards on 10 kickoff returns.

Seeing his first NFL action since the 2014 season when he was with the Bears, Perry was exclusively relegated to special teams for the Dolphins in 2017 until fellow tailback Damien Williams dislocated his shoulder in Week 14. He still wasn't much of a factor in the offense thereafter, though, as No. 1 runner Kenyan Drake proved capable of handling an every-down role. However, with Williams set to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year, Perry figures to enter the offseason second on the depth chart behind Drake.

Ja'Wuan James
The Dolphins are keeping the fifth-year option on James, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

The decision was made in May of 2017 to sign the fifth-year option, but there was a chance the Dolphins released him anyway. It's expected that James slots in as the starting right tackle.

Bobby McCain
McCain (hamstring) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Panthers.

McCain was slapped with the questionable tag due to a hamstring injury he suffered last week against the Raiders. He's seen around 30 snaps on defense per game this season, averaging three tackles per contest. Those numbers are a reasonable expectation for him Monday now that he's been given the green light to play.

Francis Owusu
Owusu signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Owusu spent part of the preseason with the Dolphins but was reached an injury settlement with the team after suffering an undisclosed injury. The undrafted free agent will now get another crack at making the team this offseason.

Malcolm Lewis
Lewis signed a reserve/future contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday.

Lewis spent the 2017 season on the Dolphins' practice squad after being waived at roster cutdowns in September. The former Miami Hurricane and Florida native will have a steep climb with hopes of cracking the Dolphins' 53-man roster in 2018.

Josh Sitton
Sitton intends to sign a two-year deal with the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Sitton played in Chicago the last two-years and the team declined his third-year option. Now in Miami, Sitton will likely take over as one of the team's starting guards looking to protect quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee), who will be returning from an ACL injury.

Terrence Fede
Fede will remain at defensive end this season, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

There was a school of thought that Fede would be best used on the inside but for now that plan has been scratched. Fede will have a difficult time getting on the field with Cameron Wake and Charles Harris among several ends that will be ahead of him on the depth chart.

Cameron Wake
Wake recorded 36 tackles and 10.5 sacks in 16 games for the Dolphins in 2017.

Wake continues to distance himself from the devasting 2015 rupture of his Achilles tendon by churning out his second consecutive season with double-digit sacks. His playing time hasn't decreased despite his advanced age, as his 615 defensive snaps was a three-year high and checked in second to Ndamukong Suh among Dolphins defensive lineman. The veteran, who turns 36 on Jan. 30, remains under contract with Miami for one more season and should return in 2018 as a viable IDP prospect.

Brandon Doughty
Doughty signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Dolphins on Tuesday.

Doughty was taken by the Dolphins in the seventh-round of the 2016 Draft, but still has not made his NFL debut with the team. He spent the entirety of the 2017 season, and all but one week of the 2016 season on their practice squad. The Western Kentucky product will look to earn a spot on the 53-man roster in the 2018 season.

Kenny Stills
Stills revealed he played through a torn tendon on a finger in his right hand most of the 2017 season but he will not require surgery this offseason, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Stills seemingly suffered the injury in Week 3 against the Jets considering he wasn't available to catch passes in practice leading up to Week 4. Despite the impairment, Stills went on to log one the best seasons of his career and finished the year with 58 receptions for 847 yards and six touchdowns while maintaining his reputation as a valuable downfield threat, considering his 14.6 average registered as 22nd-best in the league. He remains under contract with the Dolphins through 2020 and could possibly take on a larger workload in 2018 if teammate and team target-leader Jarvis Landry, who's an unrestricted free agent, doesn't re-sign with Miami this offseason.

Davon Godchaux
The Dolphins have listed Godchaux (knee) as active for Monday's tilt against the Patriots.

Although he logged a full practice Saturday, Godchaux earned a questionable designation heading into Monday's game. The 23-year-old figures to resume his role as a reserve defensive tackle assuming he avoids any setbacks throughout the contest.

Vincent Taylor
The Dolphins placed Taylor (knee) on injured reserve Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Taylor injured his knee in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs and wasn't going to progress quickly enough to suit up for the season finale against the Bills. The rookie sixth-round pick compiled 18 tackles and played 185 defensive snaps in 13 games this season.

Knee - Questionable for the start of training camp
Laremy Tunsil
Tunsil (ankle) won't play Sunday against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Tunsil was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report, so his out designation Sunday isn't much of a surprise. Expect Zach Sterup to fill in at left tackle.

Ankle - Questionable for the start of training camp
Reshad Jones
Jones agreed to restructure his contract with the Dolphins, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Jones didn't take a pay cut by any means but effectively gets a $4.05 million bonus while creating roughly $6.6 million in cap space for the Dolphins. It's a win-win situation for player and team alike that should allow Miami to field a more competitive team around Jones in 2018.

Torry McTyer
No Updates
Danny Amendola
Amendola has officially signed with the Dolphins, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Per the Boston Globe, Amendola's deal is for two years and worth $12 million. After having re-worked his deal with the Patriots prior to each of the last three seasons, the 32-year-old slot man will now cash in with his new deal with the Dolphins. From a fantasy perspective, Amendola could provide a degree of utility in PPR formats, as Miami looks to fill the void created by the departure of the target-gobbling Jarvis Landry, but he'll have some competition to that end. DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills profile as the team's top two wideouts, with Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant also on hand to jostle for looks in the team's offense with Amendola, who hauled in 61 passes for 659 yards and two TDs in 15 games for New England in 2017.

Ryan Tannehill
Tannehill (knee) agreed Wednesday to restructure his contract with the Dolphins, a move that reportedly saves the team $11.2 million in salary-cap space in 2018, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

The agreement cements Tannehill as the team's top quarterback heading into the coming season. With top wideout Jarvis Landry having been traded to the Browns, Tannehill will now be throwing to newcomers Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson as well as holdovers DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. That's a capable receiving quartet on paper, but the release of Julius Thomas will presumably prompt the Dolphins to revamp their tight-end corps in short order.

Knee - ACL - Questionable for the start of training camp
Alterraun Verner
Verner (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.

Despite a full practice Thursday, the Dolphins opted to rest Verner as to not risk an aggravation in a game without playoff implications for the Dolphins. In his place, expect Bobby McCain and Torry Mctyer to fill in at cornerback.

Hamstring - Questionable for the start of training camp
Rashawn Scott
The Dolphins promoted Scott from their practice squad Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Scott will slot in fifth on the depth chart at wideout for the Dolphins in advance of Sunday's season finale against the Bills, replacing Leonte Carroo, who was placed on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list due to an undisclosed medical situation. Since going undrafted in 2016, Scott has appeared in three games with the Dolphins over the past two seasons, but has yet to record a catch in the NFL.

John Denney
No Updates
William Hayes
Hayes signed a one-year contract extension with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reports.

Hayes is entering his 11th year in the league, with the 2017 season being his first in Miami. The 2008 fourth-rounder only racked up 19 tackles and one sack in 12 games, however, before landing on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Fortunately, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports that Hayes has since recovered and should be "ready to roll" for the offseason.

Tracy Howard
Howard was claimed off waivers by the Jaguars on Friday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

Howard appeared in 15 games for the Browns last season as an undrafted rookie out of Miami and racked up 20 tackles and one pass defensed along the way. He will try to crack the Jaguars' 53-man roster as a depth option in the secondary and a possible kickoff return specialist as well.

Jordan Lucas
Lucas finished the 2017 season with six tackles in 11 games.

Lucas was the sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by Miami but has played sparingly in his two years with the club. He has been used as a depth cornerback and special teams player, a role that isn't likely to change should he remain with the team next season.

Nate Allen
Allen has settled a wrongful arrest lawsuit with the City of Fort Myers, Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

The arrest happened in 2015 before Allen signed with the Raiders. Allen remains the starting safety for Miami and has 17 tackles this season but could be relegated to a backup role when T.J. McDonald returns from suspension on Nov. 13.
