Position Listing
 
Lowell Rose
News
The Chargers waived or released these players: running back Kerwynn Williams, offensive tackle Nick Becton, fullback Zach Boren, tight ends Ryan Otten and Jake Byrne, receivers Micah Hatfield and Brelan Chancellor, linebacker Adrian Hamilton, guard Darryl Johnson, cornerback Lowell Rose and punter Chase Tenpenny.
Jimmy Wilson
News
The Dolphins defense is missing two defensive backs for Week 13 against the Jets, as Dimitri Patterson (groin) and Jamar Taylor (hamstring) are unable to suit up for Sunday's game. The rest of the team's injured defenders were able to play through their issues, however, headlined by defensive back Chris Clemons (knee, hamstring), who was considered questionable for the game.

Defensive back Jimmy Wilson (abdomen), linebacker Koa Misi (knee) and defensive lineman Jared Odrick (knee) were all active as expect, as all three were considered probable for the game. 

Branden Albert
News
The Dolphins made it official and signed free agent offensive tackle Branden Albert on Tuesday, reports ESPN.

The deal is worth five years, $46 million with $25 million guaranteed. Albert spent the first six years of his career with the Chiefs.

Nate Garner
News
The Dolphins don't have many options to replace center Mike Pouncey, who is out for start of the season because of hip surgery, reports ESPN. He is expected to miss the next three to four months, which includes all of training camp, the preseason and the start of the regular season. 

The report says the Dolphins have three options at this stage. They can go with undrafted second-year player Sam Brenner, who received second-team reps at center this offseason and filled in at guard last season for the suspended Richie Incognito. They can use versatile backup Nate Garner, who also played center last season in place of Pouncey for two games and could be the second in-house plan. The third option is to look for outside help via trade or free agency, which could be slim pickings at this stage of the offseason.

Whatever choice Miami makes, it's replacement plan won't be nearly as good as Pouncey. He is one of the top centers in the NFL and the drop off will be significant no matter who plays in Week 1.

Koa Misi
News
Dolphins linebacker Koa Misi, who missed the Week 2 loss at Buffalo with an ankle injury, is expected to play Sunday against the Chiefs, reports the Miami Herald.
Injury
Ankle - Did not practice. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Kansas City
Brandon Fields
News
The NFL unveiled the Pro Bowl rosters for 2014Friday, and they come with a twist; for the first time, selections were made without regard for conference. The teams will be chosen via televised draft Jan. 22.

Punter: Brandon Fields, Dolphins; Johnny Hekker, Rams.

Special teamer: Justin Bethel, Cardinals; Matthew Slater, Patriots.

Tommy Streeter
News
The Buccaneers waived or released 12 players: receivers Tommy Streeter, Skye Dawson and Eric Page, quarterback Alex Tanney, fullback Ian Thompson, long snapper Jeremy Cain, guard R.J. Mattes, defensive end Chaz Sutton, defensive end Ryne Giddins, defensive tackle Euclid Cummings and offensive linemen Jace Daniels and Jason Foster.
Caleb Sturgis
News
Dolphins kicker Caleb Sturgis had a quiet game in Week 2's 29-10 loss to the Bills.

Sturgis connected on his only field-goal attempt of the game, from 34 yards, while added an extra point. He has yet to miss on five field-goal attempts this season, heading into Week 3 against the Chiefs. 

Orleans Darkwa
News
The Week 3 status of Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (ankle) is not yet known, and running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) already has been ruled out. That means Miami's running game could belong to undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Williams ran five times for 19 yards in the Week 2 loss at Buffalo, while Darkwa caught all three of his targets for 31 yards. Miami hosts the Chiefs on Sunday.

Jamar Taylor
News
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.

Billy Turner
News
Offensive linemen Billy Turner, Jason Fox and Mike Pouncey, linebackers Koa Misi and Jordie Tripp, and defensive linemen Bruce Gaston and Terrence Fede make up the Dolphins inactive list for Week 2 against the Bills. 
Michael Thomas
News
Dolphins defensive back Michael Thomas played in his first game for the team in Week 15 against the Patriots, and made an immediate impact. 

Thomas, who was signed from the 49ers' practice squad earlier in the week, came up with the game-saving interception in the end zone to clinch a 24-20 win Sunday. He added three tackles in the game, despite only playing late.

Anthony Johnson
No Updates
Shelley Smith
News
Dolphins offensive lineman Shelley Smith is expected to miss 2-4 weeks as a result of a Grade 2 knee sprain, the Miami Herald reports Monday. He suffered the injury in Week 2's 29-10 loss to the Bills. 
Damien Williams
News
The Week 3 status of Dolphins running back Lamar Miller (ankle) is not yet known, and running back Knowshon Moreno (elbow) already has been ruled out. That means Miami's running game could belong to undrafted rookies Damien Williams and Orleans Darkwa, reports the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

Williams ran five times for 19 yards in the Week 2 loss at Buffalo, while Darkwa caught all three of his targets for 31 yards. Miami hosts the Chiefs on Sunday.

News
Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill will catch a breather for the Thursday night preseason finale against St. Louis. Matt Moore is set to start instead.

Tannehill has completed 28 of 41 passes for 291 yards with one touchdown and one interception in exhibition play. Moore has performed well at 25 of 38 for 330 yards and two scores.

Matt Hazel
News
The Dolphins have completed their series of cuts to pare down their roster to the league-mandated 53 heading into the regular season.

The dispatched offensive players are quarterback Seth Lobato, linemen Tony Hills, David Arkin, Sam Brenner and Evan Finkenberg , wideouts Kevin Cone and Matt Hazel, running backs Marcus Thigpen and Daniel Thomas and tight end Evan Wilson .

Among the defensive players let go are linemen Isaako Aaitui, Garrison Smith, Tevin Mims and D'Aundre Reed, linebacker Andrew Wilson and defensive backs Jordan Kovacs and Kevin Fogg. Placekicker Jake Rogers has also been waived.

The Dolphins have also placed defensive tackle on IR and defensive end Dion Jordan and safety Reshad Jones on the reserve/suspended list.

Samson Satele
News
The Dolphins signed center Samson Satele, who started 13 games last year for the Colts. Miami is scrambling at center with starter Mike Pouncey recovering from hip surgery.

According to NFL.com, quarterback-center exchanges "have been a disaster early in camp."

Jason Fox
News
Offensive linemen Billy Turner, Jason Fox and Mike Pouncey, linebackers Koa Misi and Jordie Tripp, and defensive linemen Bruce Gaston and Terrence Fede make up the Dolphins inactive list for Week 2 against the Bills. 
Gator Hoskins
News
According to the team's official website, the following players will not dress for the Dolphins against the Buccaneers Saturday night: Mike Gillislee, Knowshon Moreno, Daniel Thomas, Charles Clay, Micajah Reynolds, Mike Pouncey, Jason Fox, Arthur Lynch, Gator Hoskins and A.J. Francis.
Cortland Finnegan
News
The battle between Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins and Dolphins cornerback Cortland Finnegan is one of the top individual matchups of Sunday's Week 2 game between the two teams, BuffaloBills.com reports.

"The Bills’ top draft choice will be working against a wily veteran in Finnegan," according to the website. "The Miami corner is in his ninth season and has a physical edge to his game that can at times spill over into frustration and over aggression."

The matchup could lead to Watkins' first breakout line of his career. Finnegan ranked 109th out of 110 qualified cornerbacks in Pro Football Focus' cumulative cornerback rating last season. However, he did post positive numbers in the same metric in the team's Week 1 win over the Patriots, which included tying for 10th overall in the league in pass coverage rating.

Gerald Rivers
News
The Dolphins have signed defensive end Gerald Rivers to the team's practice squad.
Walt Aikens
News
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.

Hand - Full practice. Probable for Week 3 vs. Kansas City

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. 

Mike Wallace
News
Mike Wallace is off to a great start this season with 12 catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns in two games against the Patriots and Bills.

He's excelled despite coverage from Darrelle Revis and Stephon Gilmore, and he has at least eight targets in each outing.

The Chiefs have already allowed three receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points in a standard league with Kendall Wright in Week 1 and Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders in Week 2.

If Wallace can once again be a focal point of the passing attack then he should come through with another quality outing at home.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Dallas Thomas
News
Dolphins coach Joe Philbin named Dallas Thomas one of the team's most improved players, and he has a good chance to start at left guard, according to the team's website. A third-round pick in last year's draft, Thomas played only four offensive snaps last season.

Thomas worked with the first team during spring drills and is much further along than he was in 2013. He stayed in South Florida throughout the offseason to get better prepared.

"You’ve got to know your material, you’ve got to know what you’re doing on the field because stuff happens so fast," Thomas said. "You’ve got to be able to just react to it and not even think about what’s happening on the field."

Brandon Gibson
News
Dolphins receivers Brandon Gibson and Jarvis Landry were mostly held in check in Week 2, in a 29-10 loss to the Bills.

Landry impressed after being held without a catch in his NFL debut a week ago, finishing second on the team with five catches for 49 yards. Unfortunately, he also lost a fumble in the game, when he muffed a punt in the fourth quarter.

Gibson took a backseat for the second game in a row, hauling in just three passes for 27 yards in the loss. Bother players will look for more success when the Dolphins take on the Chiefs in Week 3.  

Jacob Maxwell
No Updates
Mike Gillislee
News
The Dolphins waived receivers Armon Binns and Ryan Spadola, tight end Brett Brackett, cornerback Steven Clarke, defensive end Rakim Cox, defensive tackle Cory Grissom and center Tyler Larsen. Miami also put defensive tackle A.J. Francis, running back Mike Gillislee and tight end Arthur Lynch on injured reserve, ending their seasons.
Injury
Rishard Matthews
News
Dolphins receiver Rishard Matthews is on the outs with the team because of "losing focus" and "not learning as quickly as coaches want," the Miami Herald reported. It turns out Matthews isn't "a Joe Philbin favorite" despite catching 41 passes for 448 yards and two scores in limited playing time last season. 

The Dolphins drafted LSU receiver Jarvis Landry with a second-round pick, a sign the team is ready to move on from Matthews. 

Philip Wheeler
News
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.

News

Jelani Jenkins
News
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. 

Injury
Shoulder - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Kansas City
Lamar Miller
News
Dolphins tailback Lamar Miller appears all but set for action Sunday against Kansas City after practicing again Thursday. He has been nursing an ankle injury sustained in Week 2 against Buffalo.

Miller has been solid in 2014 with 105 yards in 22 carries for 4.8 YPC.

Kamal Johnson
Injury
Charles Clay
News
Charles Clay is dealing with a knee injury and his production has been limited to start the season with just nine catches for 58 yards on 14 targets.

Even though the Chiefs have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends this year in Delanie Walker, Julius Thomas and Jacob Tamme, we still can't recommend starting Clay.

He now has five games in a row without a touchdown and we're not expecting that streak to end even with the favorable matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.

Knee - Limited practice. Questionable for Week 3 vs. Kansas City

Brandian Ross
News
The Dolphins have claimed defensive tackle Bruce Gaston from the Patriots, according to the Boston Herald.

New England parted ways with Gaston Wednesday. Miami waived safety Brandian Ross in order to make room for the move. 

Olivier Vernon
News
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.
