Dolphins at Jets — Injury Report


In case you missed it, the Offical Injury Report is out for the Monday Night game between the Dolphins and the Jets.  There are some interesting players on each roster who are showing up on the Injury Report.

For the Dolphins, the players who were listed on the injury report along with their injury and weekly practice status are as follows:

Tony McDaniel DE Hand Full Participation in Practice
Koa Misi LB Neck Full Participation in Practice
Nolan Carroll CB Hamstring Limited Participation in Practice
Chris Clemons S Hamstring Limited Participation in Practice
Vontae Davis CB Hamstring Limited Participation in Practice
Daniel Thomas RB Hamstring Limited Participation in Practice
Will Yeatman TE Shoulder Limited Participation in Practice

A big concern for the Dolphins is the injuries to CBs Davis and Carroll.  If they can’t go or are limited, the Dolphins will have to resort to rookie Jimmy Wilson.  Add to that, the injury to FS Clemons causes greater concern that the Dolphins will be susceptible to the passing attack of the Jets — especially by the Jets’ TE Keller.  The biggest concern for the Dolphins is the lingering injury to RB Daniel Thomas, who is questionable for the game.  The Dolphins could really use Thomas in the running game to take some of the heat off QB Matt Moore.  It is interesting to note the number of hamstring injuries have been suffered by Dolphins offensive and defensive backs.

For the Jets, the players who were listed on the injury report along with their injury and weekly practice status are as follows:

Nick Mangold C Ankle Did Not Participate In Practice
Ropati Pitoitua DE Knee Did Not Participate In Practice
Isaiah Trufant CB Hamstring Did Not Participate In Practice
Marquice Cole CB Hamstring Full Participation in Practice
Marcus Dixon DT Shoulder Full Participation in Practice
Garrett McIntyre LB Concussion Full Participation in Practice
Bart Scott LB Toe Full Participation in Practice
Martin Tevaseu DT Low Back Full Participation in Practice
Muhammad Wilkerson DE Shoulder Full Participation in Practice
Tanner Purdum LS Low Back Limited Participation in Practice
Donald Strickland CB Concussion Limited Participation in Practice
LaDainian Tomlinson RB Calf Limited Participation in Practice
Logan Payne WR Wrist Out (Definitely Will Not Play)

The Jets also have issues at the CB position.  However, their starters seem to be okay which means they will lack depth in case of any game injuries or if the game turns into a track meet.  Also, the Jets may be short handed on special teams.  Likely the Jets biggest injury concern is to Mangold at the Center position, who is listed as questionable for the game.  If Mangold and Tomlinson of the Jets and Thomas of the Dolphins can’t go on Monday Night, we may see a lot of passing.
