Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
News
The Achilles' issue that landed Gray on IR was the result of a non-contact injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Injury
Achilles - Injured Reserve
Mike Gesicki
News
Gesicki was not targeted during Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Jesse Davis
News
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.

Xavien Howard
News
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 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
News
Wilson reeled in three of four targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' 20-12 victory over the Jets.

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.

Isaiah Ford
News
Ford caught one of two targets for five yards during Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

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.

Connor Hilland
No Updates
Jason Sanders
News
Sanders did not attempt a field goal and missed one of his three extra-point tries in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Tanner McEvoy
News
McEvoy was waived by the Saints on Saturday and claimed by the Dolphins on Sunday, freelance NFL reporter Dov Kleiman reports.

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.

Akeem Spence
News
Spence recorded 39 tackles, three sacks and one forced fumble over 16 games in 2017.

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.

Andre Branch
News
Branch underwent successful surgery Wednesday to address an undisclosed injury, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

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.

Ted Larsen
News
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
News
Drake rushed 11 times for 53 yards and a touchdown while catching all four of his targets for 17 yards in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Jake Brendel
News
Brendel (calf) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Beasley and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald report.

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.

Injury
Calf - Injured Reserve
DeVante Parker
News
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was unwilling to commit to Parker playing Week 3 against the Raiders when asked about the matter Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Brandon Bolden
News
Bolden is slated to sign with the Dolphins, the Sun-Sentinel reports.

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.

Raekwon McMillan
News
Head coach Adam Gase said Sunday that McMillan will start at middle linebacker to begin the season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

A.J. Derby
News
Derby hauled in one of his two targets for a 19-yard touchdown reception Sunday in the Dolphins' 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Maurice Smith
News
Smith will be promoted to Miami's 53-man roster, Safid Deen of the Sun Sentinel reports.

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.

Cornell Armstrong
No Updates
Walt Aikens
News
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
News
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.

Brock Osweiler
News
Osweiler will back up Ryan Tannehill during Sunday's game against the Titans, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

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.

T.J. McDonald
News
McDonald had seven tackles and played all of the defense's 69 snaps in Sunday's victory over the Titans.

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.

Jordan Phillips
News
Phillips won't practice Sunday due to a shoulder injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Charles Harris
News
Harris signed his rookie contract with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Travis Swanson
News
Swanson re-signed with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

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.

Matt Haack
No Updates
Jonathan Woodard
News
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.

Sam Young
News
Young will re-sign with the Dolphins on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Young's continued availability bodes well for Miami skill players as he serves as a capable backup at tackle in case anything happens to 2016 first-rounder Laremy Tunsil or 2014 first-rounder Ja'Wuan James.

Jakeem Grant
News
Grant snagged two of four targets for 27 yards and added a five-yard run during Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Daniel Kilgore
News
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.

Bryce Petty
News
Petty (oblique) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Injury
Oblique - Injured Reserve
Frank Gore
News
Gore rushed nine times for 25 yards and added a 19-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Cordrea Tankersley
News
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.

Nick O'Leary
News
O'Leary signed with the Dolphins' practice squad Thursday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

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.

Stephone Anthony
News
Anthony was replaced at starting outside linebacker by rookie Jerome Baker at Sunday's practice, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Leonte Carroo
News
Carroo signed a contract to join the Dolphins' practice squad, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Leonte Carroo experiment continues in Miami after the Rutgers product went unclaimed on waivers over the weekend.

Jalen Davis
No Updates
David Fales
News
Fales is a healthy inactive for Sunday's season opener against the Titans, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Chase Allen
News
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.

Robert Quinn
News
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.

Minkah Fitzpatrick
News
Fitzpatrick is expected as the team's starting nickelback, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Kiko Alonso
News
Alonso posted 13 tackles (all solo) in Sunday's win over the Jets.

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.

Luke Falk
News
Falk is a healthy inactive for Sunday's season opener against the Titans, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Zach Sterup
News
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
News
Hull (knee) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Beasley and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Injury
Knee - MCL - Injured Reserve
Jamiyus Pittman
No Updates
Senorise Perry
News
Perry ran for 35 yards and a touchdown on four carries to go along with two receptions for 10 yards during the Dolphins' preseason opener against the Buccaneers on Thursday.

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.

Ja'Wuan James
News
James (muscle strain) is back practicing in pads Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Bobby McCain
News
McCain signed a four-year, $27 million extension with the Dolphins on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

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.

Josh Sitton
News
The Dolphins placed Sitton (shoulder) on injured reserve Friday, Chris Perkins of The Athletic reports.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Injured Reserve
Quentin Poling
No Updates
Cameron Wake
News
Wake (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

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.

Kenny Stills
News
Stills was held to two catches for 17 yards on three targets in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.

Kalen Ballage
News
Ballage is a healthy inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Davon Godchaux
News
The Dolphins selected Godchaux in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 178th overall.

Godchaux (6-foot-3, 310 pounds) is a pure run stopper who played on a strong LSU defense last year. He'll try to stick in Miami as a space eater.

Vincent Taylor
News
Taylor has emerged as a standout among the defensive front through the early portion of training camp, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

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.

Laremy Tunsil
News
Tunsil logged 32 offensive snaps during Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

Tunsil has started each of the Dolphins' first two preseason games and seems to be fully healthy after injuring his ankle late last season.

Jerome Baker
No Updates
Reshad Jones
News
Jones (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

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.

Injury
Shoulder - Limited Practice on Friday. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Oakland
Torry McTyer
No Updates
Danny Amendola
News
Amendola did not suffer a concussion during Miami's 20-12 victory over the Jets, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

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.

Ryan Tannehill
News
Tannehill completed 17 of 23 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns while adding 44 yards on eight carries and losing one of two fumbles in Sunday's 20-12 win over the Jets.

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.
