The Miami Dolphins have released their injury report ahead of Sunday’s game against the Titans. The team has no one listed as “out” our “doubtful” which is good sign but any of the three players injured could be downgraded by Sunday afternoon.
Miami has tackle Branden Albert (hamstring), defensive tackle A.J. Francis (back) and cornerback Brent Grimes (knee) as questionable. Grimes and Albert practiced this week in a limited role.
Titans cornerback Perrish Cox (hamstring), tight end Anthony Fasano (concussion), defensive tackle Sammie Hill (illness, knee) and linebacker Avery Williamson (hamstring) have been listed as questionable.
The Dolphins are making their first appearance on the field this year under interim head coach Dan Campbell. Campbell has said repeatedly that he wants to change the culture and physicality of this team but if it doesn’t show up on Sunday’s, it’s all talk.

Miami is in a precarious position given the fact that the management, owner, and the team feel that they are not out of a chase for the playoffs. The Dolphins enter their fifth on field week in the 12th spot in the AFC. Six teams have one win on the season. Three teams have two wins. The two win teams start at 8th in the standings. The 4th, 5th, and 6th seeded teams all have three wins on the year.
While being two games behind in the early chase and yes it’s very early is surmountable, two of those teams, Buffalo and the Jets have both beaten Miami. While the season is still young to be talking about playoff chances, the Dolphins have put themselves in position to have these discussions. If not for a chance to make a run at gaining ground on the teams ahead of them, then by discussions on how early they will be eliminitated from contention.
A loss on Sunday won’t write them out of the post-season picture but for all intent and purposes the season will be lost. The Dolphins called the Jets game in a London a critical game but if that was a critical one than this one could be the game that takes them off life support completely.
