Dolphins DE Andre Branch (knee) is inactive for today's game against the Bills. Rookie Charles Harris is starting in his place. CB Xavien Howard (illness) is active.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) didn't travel with the team to Buffalo and is out for Sunday's game against the Bills. That locks Kenyan Drake into a feature role. He's racked up 48 carries and 8 catches over the past 2 weeks.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Bills. He returned to practice this week, giving him a shot to play in Week 16. But Kenyan Drake will again play a feature-back role this weekend vs. Buffalo’s 32nd-ranked RB defense.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) put in a limited practice on Thursday -- his 1st since going down in Week 12. That gives him a shot to play against the Bills on Sunday. Williams' return would put a dent in RB Kenyan Drake's outlook, but Drake would still be a fantasy starter as Miami's likely lead back.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is out for Monday night's game against the Patriots. He's yet to practice since going down in Week 12 and has no timetable for return. Kenyan Drake will again serve as Miami's feature back on Monday.

The Dolphins have added S Reshad Jones to the injury report for today's game against the Broncos. Jones is questionable with a back injury. We'll check on his status later this morning, when the inactives are announced.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Broncos. That leaves Kenyan Drake in a feature-back role — and make him a fine RB2 in fantasy lineups, despite the tough matchup.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler has cleared the concussion protocol and will start Sunday's game against the Broncos, HC Adam Gase announced. Cutler was actually playing reasonably well before the injury, tossing multiple TDs in 4 straight games. Denver, meanwhile, has allowed a league-high 24 passing scores and will be without CB Aqib Talib. It's enough to make Cutler an option in 2-QB leagues.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams dislocated his shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Patriots, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Williams is scheduled for an MRI today, but Rapoport notes that this is "generally a 2-3 week injury." That timeline would have Williams out until Week 15 or 16. He's droppable in shallower fantasy leagues. Kenyan Drake should operate as a feature back while Williams is sidelined. He has a tough draw against the Broncos this weekend but more favorable matchups the next 2 weeks vs. the Patriots and Bills.

Dolphins RB Damien Williams injured his shoulder in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game in New England and will not return. We'll look for an update on his status afterward. Kenyan Drake will serve as Miami's feature back the rest of the way.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Patriots. QB Matt Moore will draw the start after a nice showing in relief of Cutler last week. New England's defense has been much better over the past month and a half, but Moore should have enough volume on his side to make him a decent QB2 play.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler stayed in the locker room at the start of the 2nd half of Sunday's game vs. the Bucs to get checked for a concussion. He completed just 6 of 12 passes with 3 INTs in the 1st half. QB Matt Moore is in the game for Miami. We'll update Cutler's status when we learn more.

Update: Cutler has been diagnosed with a concussion and is out for the game.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is active for today’s game against the Bucs. He dealt with back spasms late this week, and there’s always a chance they resurface today. Stills is a risky WR4.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is expected to play against the Bucs today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He exited Thursday's practice and was sidelined Friday with what Rapoport says were back spasms. The situation makes Stills a riskier Week 11 fantasy option. He was just a WR4 anyway.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Bucs after injuring his back on Thursday. He didn’t practice on Friday. Stills told reporters that he expects to play on Sunday, but HC Adam Gase was non-committal. We’ll find out his official status by noon ET, but Stills will be a risky fantasy play if active.

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills left practice on Thursday with a back injury. He's still expected to suit up vs. Tampa Bay, per beat writer Armando Salguero. We'll track this situation up to game time.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Raiders. He put in a full week of practice and is safe to get into fantasy lineups in a plus matchup.

7:11pm EST 11/5/17

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (ribs) is active for tonight’s game against the Raiders. He’s in the QB2 mix vs. the league’s 21st-ranked QB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is expected to play tonight against the Raiders. Cutler is questionable with a rib injury that cost him Week 8. HC Adam Gase has said that Cutler will get his starting job back when he's ready. The Raiders present an upside matchup, and getting WR DeVante Parker back will help. Cutler's play to date, however, also means lots of downside risk.

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler (ribs) put in a full week of practice. He’s listed as questionable but is fully expected to start against the Raiders on Sunday night. Despite that plus matchup, he remains just a QB2.
