Latest Updates

 

Jelani Jenkins, Jason Trusnik step up in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) Dolphins linebackers Jelani Jenkins and Jason Trusnik were forced into larger-than-expected roles in Week 2 against the Bills, as a result of injuries on the depth chart.

Jenkins led the team with 14 tackles -- nine solo -- and Trusnik wasn't far behind, with 10 -- five solo. Neither accumulated any other stats in the 29-10 loss. 


Dolphins pass rush ineffective in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) The Dolphins pass rush was held at bay in Sunday's 29-10 loss to the Bills, as the team ended up with no sacks in Week 2.

Linebackers Olivier Vernon and Cameron Wake combined for no sacks or tackles for losses in the game, and neither registered a quarterback hit either. Vernon racked up six tackles -- five solo -- while Wake had just one assisted stop.  


Dolphins fall flat in Week 2 loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Dolphins DST unit faltered Sunday, in a 29-10 loss to the Bills in what looked to be an easy matchup.

The Dolphins limited the Bills to just 315 yards of total offense, but suffered from a serious lack of big plays. The Bills put up 29 points on the Dolphins, despite scoring a touchdown in just one of six trips to the red zone. The Dolphins forced no turnovers and had no sacks in the game either.

Big things were expected from the Dolphins DST unit this week, after they overpowered the Patriots in Week 1. They will look to bounce back when they take on the Chiefs in Week 3. 


Koa Misi only Dolphins defender sidelined Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Dolphins defense is mostly in good shape for Sunday's matchup against the Bills in Week 2, but they will be missing one key piece. Linebacker Koa Misi is inactive as a result of a knee injury suffered last week, though his absence was expected as he was listed as doubtful on the injury report.

Other than Misi, the rest of the team enters the game healthy enough to play. Linebackers Philip Wheeler (thumb) and Chris McCain (illness), defensive linemen Randy Starks (toe) and Derrick Shelby (knee), and defensive back Walt Aikens (hand) were all considered probable and are in uniform for the game. 


Five Dolphins defenders expected to play through injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) The Dolphins have a lengthy injury report for Week 2 against the Bills, but most of their defensive players listed are expected to be healthy enough to play.

Linebackers Chris McCain (illness) and Philip Wheeler (thumb), defensive linemen Randy Starks (toe) and Derrick Shelby (knee) and defensive back Walt Aikens (hand) are all probable for Sunday's game despite being limited at times during practice. 


Koa Misi out indefinitely with ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi is out indefinitely with an ankle injury suffered in Week 1's win over the Patriots Sunday, the Miami Herald reports Monday.

Misi played just 17 snaps prior to his injury, and his status for Week 2 against the Bills will likely be determined based on his availability for practice throughout the week. 


Dolphins sign LB as Dannell Ellerbe heads to IR


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said starting linebacker Dannell Ellerbe will be placed on injured reserve after suffering a hip injury Sunday against the Patriots, according to The Palm Beach Post. It is believed Ellerbe will be placed on season-ending injured reserve and not placed on short-term IR, which would allow him to return this season.

The Dolphins will sign Kelvin Sheppard to take Ellerbe's spot on the roster.


Dolphins gets after QB in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) The Dolphins rushed the passer well in Sunday's 33-20 win over the Patriots in Week 1, and Olivier Vernon and Chris McCain were part of the reason why.

Vernon had one of the team's four sacks, to go with three solo tackles in the win. McCain, appearing in his first NFL game, made an impact on defense and special teams. He blocked a punt early in the game and came up with his first NFL sack later.

 


Cameron Wake disrupts passing game in win


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Dolphins defensive end Cameron Wake mad his impact felt in a big way in Sunday's 33-20 Week 1 win over the Patriots.

Wake had just three tackles -- all solo -- but that hardly gets at the kind of impact he had. He hounded Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throughout the game, finishing with two sacks and two drive-ending forced fumbles in the win.


Four sacks, two turnovers highlight Dolphins opener


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Dolphins defense put together a strong performance in Week 1, as they shut down the Patriots offense for much of a 33-20 win.

The Dolphins were gashed for 20 points in the first half, but much of that came as the result of short fields for the Patriots' offense. The defense buckled down in a big way in the second half as they shut the Patriots out, while forcing two turnovers on strip sacks by Cameron Wake. The Dolphins had four sacks overall, while limiting the Patriots to just 315 yards on 80 total plays.

The Dolphins DST unit won't face many tougher opponents than they did in Week 1, so the question will be whether they can keep this kind of performance up moving forward. They take on the Bills in Week 2.


Dannell Ellerbe exits with hip injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins linebacker Dannell Ellerbe was forced out of Sunday's game against the Patriots in the first half with a hip injury, and was unable to return to the game. He finished the game with just two tackles before he was forced out. 

Koa Misi forced out with ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi suffered an ankle injury in the first half of Sunday's game against the Patriots, and was unable to return. He was ruled out just before halftime as a result of the injury.  

Injured Dolphins defenders able to play Sunday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Dolphins enter Week 1 against the Patriots without much in the way of injury concerns, as four players from the defensive side of the ball were able to play through their issues Sunday.

Defensive backs Walt Aikens (hand) and Jamar Taylor (hip) are active for Sunday's game, along with linebackers Koa Misi (shoulder) and Chris McCain (hip). All four were listed as probable for the game.


Dolphins defense opens with unenviable matchup


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/6/2014) It is never a good sign when the Patriots show up on the schedule for a defense, and the Dolphins DST unit seems unlikely to have a good time in Week 1's matchup Sunday.

The Dolphins failed to crack double digits in Fantasy scoring in either of their two matchups against the Patriots last season, as they totaled just 16 points. And, though Rob Gronkowski is expected to be limited in Week 1 as he returns from knee surgery, there is little reason to think that portends good things to come for Miami; Gronkowski played just half the team's snaps in one game last season, while missing the other entirely.

Opposing DST units averaged just 5.7 Fantasy points per game against the Patriots, and there is little reason to think their offense will be any worse this season. The Dolphins rank outside of the top-24 in both our experts' rankings for Week 1, and should be avoided in nearly as Fantasy leagues this Sunday.


Cortland Finnegan taking two-year deal with the Dolphins


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/14/2014) Miami is expected to sign cornerback Cortland Finnegan to a two-year deal, a source told NFL Network. The Dolphins will pair him with Brent Grimes as their starting corners, assuming they don't open up a competition for the other starting spot with Will Davis.

Finnegan struggled last year with the Rams, totaling one interception and 27 total tackles in seven games before fracturing an orbital bone. He should be fine for the start of training camp. 


Louis Delmas to sign one-year deal with Miami


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) Former Lions safety Louis Delmas agreed to terms on a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Dolphins, according to Pro Football Talk on Monday.

Delmas was a full-time starter with Detroit in 2013, finishing the season with 64 tackles and three interceptions.


Brent Grimes not expected to get franchise tag


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/3/2014) The Dolphins have to decide Monday if they want to place the franchise tag on cornerback Brent Grimes or let him become a free agent, reports ESPN.

The report says the Dolphins can use the one-year franchise tag before the afternoon deadline at $11.5 million. Or they can attempt to sign him to a long-term extension before he hits the open market.

According to Pro Football Talk, Grimes is not expected to get the franchise tag, but he is likely to stay with the Dolphins on a long-term deal.


Dolphins open to trading Dion Jordan


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/28/2014) The Dolphins are looking at trade options for defensive lineman Dion Jordan, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason LaCanfora.

The Dolphins traded up in the 2013 NFL Draft to pick Jordan at No. 3 overall. But Jordan made minimal impact as a rookie with only two sacks and 26 total tackles.


Brent Grimes 'pretty optimistic' about long-term deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Cornerback Brent Grimes said he's "pretty optimistic" he'll reach a contract agreement with the Dolphins before the franchise tag deadline a week away, reports the Miami Herald.

“They said they like me here and want to have me back," Grimes told the paper. "Hopefully, it happens sooner than later, and I don’t have to worry about it.” Grimes said the team has not discussed slapping him with the tag, and "nobody wants to get franchise tag, another one-year deal.”

Even if a player is tagged, the sides can negotiate a contract and get the tag lifted by mid-July.


Franchise tag becoming more likely for Brent Grimes


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Each day that goes by without the Dolphins and corner Brent Grimes reaching a contract agreement, "the more likely it is that Grimes get 'tagged,'" reports ESPN.com. Miami has a week to decide if it will slap the franchise tag on Grimes for the 2014 season.

Grimes was the team's most consisent defender last year, and the Dolphins have the resources to keep him for at least one more season, the report said. Grimes often shadowed the opponent's top wideout and tied for the team lead with four interceptions.


Brent Grimes most likely Dolphin to be franchised


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Cornerback Brent Grimes is the Dolphins player most likely to be franchised, reports the Palm Beach Post. Grimes made 60 tackles and four interceptions in 2013 en route to a Pro Bowl selection.

Defensive tackle Paul Soliai is a less likely candidate for the tag, according to the paper. Teams must decide by March 3 whether to use the tag for the 2014 season.


Dolphins flop vs. lowly Jets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Dolphins should have been able to handle a subpar Jets offense easily in Week 17, but came out flat in a 20-7 loss.

The Jets had one of their best offensive games of the season, racking up 370 yards of total offense, their fourth-highest total of the season. The Dolphins had little answer for the Jets' rushing game, and were unable to force a turnover or come up with a sack in the loss.

The Dolphins DST unit had some solid stretches this season, but weren't particularly consistent. This unit has some solid pieces, but is likely to be more of a low-end Fantasy option on Draft Day next season. 


Dolphins healthy for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) The Dolphins have placed 10 players on their Friday injury report, but only running back Daniel Thomas (ankle) is questionable for the critical battle against the Jets. The others are probable, including quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee). The other offensive players are wide receivers Brian Hartline (knee) and Marlon Moore (wrist).

The defensive probables are defensive backs Jamar Taylor (hamstring), Don Jones (elbow/abdomen) and Chris Clemons (knee/hamstring), linebacker Koa Misi (triceps) and tackles Jared Odrick (wrist) and Paul Soliai (ankle).


Dolphins still have no answer for Thad Lewis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Facing a backup quarterback, the Dolphins defense put up one of their most disappointing performance of the season in a 19-0 loss to the Bills in Week 16.

The Dolphins surrendered 390 yards of total offense, and had absolutely no answer for the Bills' running game. Buffalo gashed the Dolphins for 203 yards on the ground. Additionally, a lack of big plays on defense and a lack of support from the offense proved costly.  

The Dolphins actually held up well in the red zone, holding the Bills to just one touchdown and three field goals at that part of the field. Unfortunately, Miami came up with just one turnover, an interception, and finished the game with just one sack of quarterback Thad Lewis.

The Dolphins DST unit has now struggled twice against Lewis this season. They will try to bounce back in Week 17, with a season-closing game against the Jets on the way. 


Dolphins pass rushers neutralized by Bills


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) The Dolphins' pass-rushing tandem of defensive end Olivier Vernon and linebacker Cameron Wake failed to make much of an impact in Week 16 against the Bills. Neither player managed to pick up a sack in the 19-0 loss; Vernon had five tackles, while Wake had just four.

Heading into the final game of the season, Vernon has 11 1/2 sacks, while Wake has 8 1/2, the second-lowest total of his career.
