Miami Dolphins injury report brings good and bad news
By Brian Murray
The Miami Dolphins mid-week injury report, ahead of the home game against the Detroit Lions, bares bad news, but also brings good news.
Let’s get the bad news out of the way first. The Miami Dolphins have already ruled out a quarterback for Sunday, placed a linebacker on injured reserve and had two defensive ends sit out practice.
Ryan Tannehill will miss a second game in a row, due to an injured throwing shoulder. Ryan did practice, but on a limited basis and didn’t throw the ball. The shoulder is still being evaluated and resting it is the current plan of action for now. Brock Osweiler will get the start hot off of his 380 yard, three TD performance.
Linebacker Chase Allen has been placed on injured reserve. He’ll be replaced by LB Mike Hull, who returned to practice from the injured reserve list. Offensive lineman Jake Brendel also appeared at practice after being on the IR list. League rules only allow two players to return from IR, ending the season for QB Luke Falk, C Daniel Kilgore, DE William Hayes and G Josh Sitton.
The two players that sat out practice today were DE’s Charles Harris (calf) and Jonathan Woodard (concussion). The remaining players that were limited in practice were CB Bobby McCain and DE Cameron Wake, both nursing knee injuries.
The good news was seeing Wake back out on the practice field for the first time since week four. Adam Gase said he would get with Cameron later in the day and tomorrow to see how he felt after practicing, to get a better idea of his availability for Sunday. It was also encouraging that WR DeVante Parker, along with FS Reshad Jones were both full participants Wednesday.
This injury report will be updated after the final injury report is released Friday.
