Position Listing
MarQueis Gray
Gray played on just one of 59 offensive snaps during the Dolphins' season finale against the Patriots.

Despite possessing status as Miami's No. 2 tight end behind Dion Sims, Gray was almost exclusively contained to special teams work on Sunday. This is nothing new as the converted college quarterback has only been involved in the passing attack in games this season when both Sims and Jordan Cameron (concussion) sat out (forcing Gray to start). With Cameron an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, there's a chance Gray will maintain his current slotting on the depth chart in 2017, but his role in the offense is unlikely to change considering the Dolphins' indifference towards featuring tight ends.

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 has a torn Achilles tendon and is out for the season, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins were expecting Lippett to miss some time but the confirmation of a torn Achilles tendon is worse than they could have anticipated. Lippett was projected to enter the season as a serviceable depth corner for the Miami secondary. With the 25-year-old no longer in the short-term picture, the Dolphins will presumably count on Alterraun Verner and Lafayette Pitts to step in where needed.

Foot - Injured Reserve
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 - Injured Reserve
Xavien Howard
Howard (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Howard steadily increased his practice involvement throughout the week, moving from a nonparticipant Wednesday to a limited participant Thursday before logging a full session Friday. With the health of his ankle seemingly on sturdy ground, Howard shouldn't face any restrictions with his snap count in Week 7. In five games this season, Howard has recorded 23 tackles and has defensed two passes, but is still looking to force his first turnover.

Isaiah Ford
Ford (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday.

Ford underwent meniscus surgery Aug. 2 and isn't close to returning, so he was waived with an injury designation Friday. Upon clearing waivers, he reverts to IR. He's likely stuck there for the entire season unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Knee - Meniscus - Injured Reserve
Anthony Fasano
Fasano brought in both of his targets for 11 yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to Baltimore.

Fasano was catchless through five games but has come alive with five catches -- including a touchdown -- over the past two weeks. Offseason acquisition Julius Thomas has been a disappointment this season, and the Dolphins may be working Fasano into the fold. Each saw 36 snaps on offense Thursday.

Jermon Bushrod
Bushrod (foot) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Miami Herald reports.

Bushrod had to leave the game early Sunday due to the injury. If Bushrod is unable to play this week it's likely that Jesse Davis will play right guard and Sam Young will lineup at right tackle versus the Patriots.

Foot - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
Sean Hickey
No Updates
Michael Thomas
Thomas (knee) is active for Sunday's matchup with the Buccaneers.

Thomas has been nursing this knee injury for a while now, but the soreness isn't enough to keep him out of Sunday's lineup. However, he's mainly used as a special teams asset, even more now that starting free safety T.J. McDonald has returned from his eight-game suspension.

Andre Branch
Branch (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Branch was able to practice with limitations ahead of Week 8's matchup with the Ravens, but he was still inactive when the game rolled around. Therefore, there isn't much reason for optimism that he'll return, and Branch hasn't been performing at a level worthy of fantasy owners' attention anyway.

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 only had four yards on seven carries and 10 yards on one reception as the Dolphins lost to Tampa Bay, 30-20, on Sunday.

Drake had been splitting the starting running back job with Damien Williams but disappointed fantasy owners with a poor performance Sunday. Part of the reason for his lack of touches could be that the Dolphins were trailing for most of the game, but more was expected of Drake coming off his 82 yards on the ground versus Carolina last Monday. He'll now set his sights on Week 12's matchup with the Patriots.

Damien Williams
Williams rushed 10 times for 78 yards and brought in his only target for 24 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Williams outpaced backfield mate Kenyan Drake in rushing touches, but his final line was a bit deceptive. The 25-year-old racked up 69 of his 78 rushing yards on a single first-quarter scamper, but otherwise he averaged just a yard per tote on his other nine carries. The distribution of the ground game work is likely to continue to fluctuate on a week-to-week basis, making it somewhat hard to trust Williams and Drake regardless of format.

Jake Brendel
No Updates
DeVante Parker
Parker brought in four of nine targets for 26 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

The speedy receiver played a clear second fiddle to position mates Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry, who both excelled in the downfield passing attack against the Buccaneers. While Stills brought in passes of 45 and 61 yards and Landry tallied a 49-yard reception, Parker's longest catch of the day went for a modest 17 yards. However, he does encouragingly continue to see a robust target volume, with Sunday's nine looks bringing his three-game total to 25 in that category. He'll look to get his numbers back up against the Patriots in Week 12.

Matt Moore
Dolphins coach Adam Gase suggested Monday that Moore will remain the backup if Jay Cutler (concussion) is healthy enough to play Week 12 against the Patriots, James Walker of reports.

Gase apparently isn't buying into the idea of a quarterback controversy, perhaps remembering Moore's calamitous performance as the starter in a 40-0 loss to the Ravens back in Week 8. Moore undeniably has been effective as a mid-game replacement for Cutler on two occasions this season, highlighted by his 282 passing yards in the second half of Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers. While Cutler's seat undoubtedly is getting warm, it sounds as if Moore will only get the Week 12 start if his teammate fails to clear the concussion protocol in time for Sunday's game.

Raekwon McMillan
McMillan suffered from a torn ACL in Thursday's preseason opener against the Falcons, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It is what the Dolphins feared after McMillan left Thursday's contest early, but an MRI on Friday confirmed the linebacker would be done for the season. Mike Hall, who appeared in all 16 games and recorded 33 tackles for Miami last season, could be promoted from backup to starter at linebacker in McMillan's stead.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Maurice Smith
No Updates
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 - Injured Reserve
Walt Aikens
Dolphins cornerback Walt Aikens was suspended for the season finale Sunday for missing a team meeting after he was involved in a domestic dispute at his Sunrise home, per WINZ-AM.

The report further claimed, per a source, that there was no physical violence with his girlfriend, but that his phone was smashed.

Kolby Listenbee
Listenbee (groin) was waived with a non-football injury designation by the Bills on Tuesday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.

Listenbee was waived in order to make room on the roster for wideout Rashad Ross. The 23-year-old has had complications stemming from groin surgery he underwent over a year ago. If he can prove his health, Listenbee has a shot of making another roster before training camp begins.

Groin - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
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
Cutler remains in the NFL's concussion protocol heading into the Dolphins' practice Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Dolphins head coach Adam Gase noted that a decision on the team's starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Patriots will likely be made later in the week. With that in mind, Gase didn't rule out the possibility that Cutler could play Week 12 even if he's unable to practice. Until Cutler is cleared for full practices, Matt Moore, who relieved Cutler in the Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers, should handle the first-team reps.

Concussion - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
T.J. McDonald
McDonald (suspension) was added to the Dolphins' 53-man roster Saturday.

McDonald's eight-game suspension stemming from a 2016 DUI arrest concluded earlier this week, so it was only a matter of time until he was activated. The 26-year-old has been unable to practice with the team since the end of the preseason, so there may be a bit of rust to shake off. Even so, the Dolphins expect him to contribute significantly right away alongside veteran safety Reshad Jones.

Lawrence Timmons
The Dolphins reinstated Timmons from his indefinite suspension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Timmons will play in Sunday's game against the Saints.

After Timmons went AWOL ahead of the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Chargers to tend to a personal matter, the team suspended the linebacker and didn't provide any indication when he would return. His suspension will last a little over a week, and the expectation is that he'll resume practicing with the team Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's game. Chase Allen ended up filling in at outside linebacker in the Week 3 loss to the Jets and recorded seven tackles, but is expected to see his snap count drop dramatically in Week 4 with Timmons back in the fold.

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 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.

Matt Haack
No Updates
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 (illness) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Panthers.

Grant missed some practice time this week due to an unspecified illness and was handed the questionable tag entering Monday night. Now that he's been given the thumbs up to play, the Texas Tech product should be set to continue in his role as the team's top return man, with the potential to see a handful of snaps on offense.

Thomas Duarte
Duarte was waived by the Dolphins on Saturday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

The fact Duarte wasn't waived with an injury designation implies he's since been cleared after suffering a concussion in the third preseason game.

Gabe Wright
Wright signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Monday, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.

The Eagles have been short on depth at defensive tackle throughout offseason activities, so Wright's addition will provide the team with a little more depth at the position. The 25-year-old has appeared in 12 career games with the Lions and Browns since being drafted in the fourth round in 2015, logging 10 total stops.

Cordrea Tankersley
The Dolphins selected Tankersley in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 97th overall.

Tankersley looks like a nice pick here. He's a big corner at 6-foot-1, 199 pounds with 32 and 1/4-inch arms, but showed good speed with a 4.4-second 40 at the Combine. With Byron Maxwell and Tony Lippett already in Miami, the Dolphins are loaded with big corners.

Stephone Anthony
Anthony (knee) wasn't able to practice Wednesday, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins web site reports.

Anthony sustained the injury during the game Sunday versus Tampa Bay. That game was the first one he had played in since Week 4. If he can't play Sunday the Dolphins will be awfully thin at LB with only Chase Allen and the recently signed Neville Hewitt as backups for each position.

Knee - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
Leonte Carroo
Carroo brought in six of eight targets for 48 yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Ravens.

Both Carroo's reception and target totals were career highs, as he was a primary beneficiary of the absence of DeVante Parker (ankle). The 23-year-old had only one reception on the season coming into Thursday's contest, so it's difficult to put much stock into the sudden bump in production. Carroo remains a relative afterthought in the offense when the receiving corps is at full strength, which could well be the case for a Week 9 tilt against the Raiders.

Neville Hewitt
The Dolphins signed Hewitt off their practice squad Wednesday, James Walker of reports.

The addition of Hewitt, who was previously cut by the Dolphins in training camp, brings the roster back up to 53 men. Hewitt provide depth at linebacker after the team released veteran Rey Maualuga on Nov. 18 following his arrest a day earlier.

Drew Morgan
The Dolphins waived Morgan on Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Morgan made an impression early in camp, as he jumped up the depth chart relatively quick. However, he was ultimately unable to make it through the team's final cuts. The Dolphins are reportedly seeking to keep him on their practice squad.

Julius Thomas
Thomas had four receptions for 30 yards as the Dolphins lost to the Buccaneers, 30-20, on Sunday.

Thomas was only targeted four times during the contest but reeled each one in. He hasn't been the red-zone threat that some were hoping for after being reunited with Adam Gase, which seems unlikely to change in the near future. Now that bye weeks have completed, Thomas is a candidate to fall out of favor in the majority of formats.

David Fales
Fales signed with the Dolphins on Wednesday,'s James Walker reports.

A 2014 sixth-round selection, Fales will be reunited with Dolphins head coach Adam Gase, who served as the Bears' offensive coordinator in 2015 while Fales was with the team. The 26-year-old quarterback made his first career regular-season appearance in Week 17 last season, attempting five passes at the end of a blowout. He's a long shot to make it through final cuts, as the Dolphins have one of the NFL's top backup quarterbacks in Matt Moore.

Chase Allen
Allen (concussion) is absent from Wednesday's injury report.

Allen exited Sunday's game against Tampa Bay to be evaluated for a concussion. Fortunately, it doesn't seem like he'll need to miss any time.

Ndamukong Suh
Suh (knee) was a full participant in practice Friday and was removed from the Dolphins' injury report, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Suh sat out practices Wednesday and Thursday with the injury but is in no danger of missing Sunday's game versus Tampa Bay. He will play a big role in attempting to stop the Buccaneers' run game and provide pressure up the middle on passing downs.

Jarvis Landry
Landry brought in six of 11 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers. He also gained 20 yards on two punt returns.

Landry hauled in a season-long 49-yard pass on his way to a 15.8 YPC, his highest such figure in a game this season. The fourth-year pro also exceeded his high-water mark in receiving yards while logging a touchdown reception for the third straight week and sixth time in the last seven contests. Landry continues to be peppered with targets irrespective of who's behind center, keeping him highly valuable in all formats. He'll look to keep surging in a Week 12 divisional clash against the Patriots.

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 - Injured Reserve
Eric Smith
Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Smith missed Sunday's loss to the Saints and will now most likely miss the remainder of the season due to an undisclosed knee injury. In a corresponding move, the Dolphins promoted defensive back Jordan Lucas to the active roster.

Knee - Injured Reserve
Kiko Alonso
Alonso recorded 10 tackles in the Dolphins' 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.

Alonso also had an unnecessary roughness penalty for a late hit to Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the game. While he might receive a fine for the transgression, it's unlikely that Alonso will be subject to any further league discipline. Alonso has recorded 69 tackles to go with a sack and two forced fumbles on the season.

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 is the player most likely to take over at starting MLB for the recently released Rey Maualuga, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Hull was also the starter earlier this season as the Dolphins waited for Maualuga to get into playing shape. Hull has 24 tackles and a fumble recovery in nine games for the Dolphins this season. He is likely to be flanked by Lawrence Timmons and Kiko Alonso for the game versus Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Mike Pouncey
Pouncey (knee/hip) was able to fully participate in Tuesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Pouncey cleared concussion protocol in time to play in Sunday's victory over the Jets but was still hurting due to the knee and hip issues following the contest. The Dolphins eased him into Week 8 preparations with a limited practice Monday, but his upgrade to a full session Tuesday puts him on track to play Thursday against the Ravens.

Senorise Perry
Perry (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Buccaneers.

The reserve running back was able to return to practice as a full participant Friday after missing the first two sessions of the week, and he apparently showed enough to warrant active status Sunday. He'll once again serve as the backup to starters Kenyan Drake and Damian Williams and see the majority of his work on special teams.

Ja'Wuan James
The Dolphins placed James (hamstring) on injured reserve Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Surgery was a consideration as James was evaluated for Monday's game against the Panthers, and it is still a definite possibility, but there has not been an official announcement yet. The 2014 first-round pick sustained the injury in Sunday's loss to the Raiders and was originally questionable to return. Jesse Davis will step in at right tackle for the Dolphins.

Hamstring - Injured Reserve
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.

Malcolm Lewis
No Updates
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 is off to a productive start in training camp, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

At this point last season we were wondering if Wake could return to being a dominating pass rusher coming off the Achilles tendon tear. Well, he proved he could last year with 11.5 sacks, a number he is hoping to surpass this year. Wake shouldn't be forgotten about in IDP leagues that offer big points for sacks and quarterback hits.

Brandon Doughty
Doughty signed with the Dolphins' practice squad, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins elected to keep just two active quarterbacks on their final roster in Jay Cutler and Matt Moore. Doughty will remain within the organization and essentially serve as the No. 3 quarterback for the team.

Kenny Stills
Stills (back) gathered seven of eight targets for 180 yards and one touchdown in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers. He also fumbled once.

Stills was responsible for the Dolphins posting two of their three longest pass plays of the season Sunday, as he hauled in both a 45-yard pass and a 61-yard scoring strike, the latter closing Miami's deficit to 20-19 with three minutes remaining. Stills showed no evidence of the back injury that had been plaguing him during the practice week, and his reception and receiving yardage totals were both season highs. The 25-year-old has now seen eight targets for consecutive weeks, as well as 30 overall in the last four games. Given his performance Sunday, he could well be a primary beneficiary if Matt Moore draws another start in Week 12 against the Patriots.

Davon Godchaux
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
The Dolphins selected Taylor in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 194th overall.

Taylor (6-foot-3, 304 pounds) looks like a very nice pick for Miami here. He totaled 21.5 tackles for loss over the last two years at Oklahoma State, and at the Combine he showed encouraging athletic metrics -- his 5.07-second 40, 108-inch broad jump, and 7.58-second three-cone drill were all good for his size.

Laremy Tunsil
Tunsil was absent from practice Wednesday due to an illness, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Tunsil is not expected to miss the game Sunday versus New England at this point in time. The Dolphins will need Tunsil at his best this week to have any chance at a victory over New England.

Illness - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
Cody Parkey
Parkey made both of his field-goal and extra-point attempts en route to eight points in Sunday's 30-20 loss to the Buccaneers.

Parkey's scoring output matched his highest since Miami's season opener. Through 10 games, however, he boasts merely 47 points, and Sunday's trip to New England doesn't appear favorable for fantasy production either.

Reshad Jones
Jones (calf) has been activated off the Dolphins' non-football injury list.

Jones' return to the active roster comes as a good sign for Miami. The projected Week 1 starting safety had been dealing with a lingering calf issue for the beginning part of training camp, but it looks as if he's good to go now. The 29-year-old logged 51 tackles and a pick over the course of six games last season. When healthy, he's a reliable source of tackles in IDP formats, which was very much the case in 2015, when Jones racked up 135 stops.

Ryan Tannehill
Tannehill (knee) is recovering from surgery and is anticipated to return to the Dolphins' facility to rehab in the coming days, Chris Perkins of the Sun-Sentinel reports.

Tannehill is already going through the early stages of rehab, but he'll soon do it with the help of Miami's medical staff. The quarterback's knee injury is anticipated to sideline him for around eight to 12 months. With him out, Jay Cutler will start for the Dolphins this season.

Knee - ACL - Injured Reserve
Alterraun Verner
Verner was signed by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Verner was released by the Buccaneers in February after notching a career-low 16 tackles in 16 games throughout the 2016 season. He added just 11 total passes defensed and two interceptions during the last two seasons combined. He'll have a solid shot at making the Dolphins' final roster, but Byron Maxwell (ankle), Xavien Howard and Bobby McCain will likely be ahead of Verner on the Week 1 depth chart.

Rashawn Scott
Scott (foot) was activated off injured reserve Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Scott returned to practice nearly two weeks ago, and the with the Dolphins officially activating him, the wideout is eligible to return to the field as soon as this Sunday against the Raiders. However, he'll likely remain buried on the team's depth chart for the remainder of the regular season.

John Denney
No Updates
William Hayes
Hayes (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Although Hayes is a backup on the depth chart, he's still logged 30 or more snaps in each of his last three matchups. However, he hasn't been able to post a high tackle count in his limited snaps, which keeps him off fantasy owners' radars.

Back - Questionable for Week 12 at New England
Jordan Lucas
Lucas was promoted to the Dolphins active roster on Tuesday.

Lucas joins the active roster after tackle Eric Smith was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. The 24-year-old defensive back will likely play a role as a backup and on special teams.

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.
