It has been reported from the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero and NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington that Dolphins DT Paul Soliai is going to play tonight against the New Orleans Saints
Dolphins source tells me it’s “promising” Paul Soliai plays tonight. Workout in a few minutes before final decision.

and Darlington soon followed with:
I’m told Paul Soliai and Cameron Wake are both looking good for tonight. Specifically on Soliai, source says, “Paul is 100 percent a go.”

The news on Cameron Wake is also a surprise, but news outlets had been reporting him as 50-50 earlier in the week. Soliai is more of a surprise considering the Dolphins signed Marvin Austin earlier this week. Soliai is key to Miami stopping the run, as he is easily the team’s best run stuffer. This is a huge pre-game victory for the Dolphins.
