Dolphins S Jevon Holland (knees) is questionable for the third straight game. He missed the past two contests. But this week marked the first time in that span that Holland managed limited practices every day. He told reporters Friday only that he's "day to day," "taking his time," and "coming along nicely," according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post. We'll check Holland's status Sunday. It'll matter even more after Miami ruled out S DeShon Elliott with a concussion. S Brandon Jones should get his third straight start. Elijah Campbell stepped in after Elliott left last week's game. Missing both starting safeties would obviously make Miami's defense more vulnerable, especially a week after arguably the best game of Jets QB Zach Wilson's career. The Dolphins have also deemed CB Xavien Howard (hip) and Edge Andrew Van Ginkel (oblique) questionable. Howard missed one practice before returning to limited work Thursday and Friday. Van Ginkel was limited each day. We'll check their statuses Sunday morning.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips (oblique) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. He managed limited practices all week after missing last Sunday's loss in Buffalo. The Palm Beach Post reports that Phillips "said he's not 100 percent but is confident he's healthy enough to help the team." If he's active, Phillips belongs in IDP lineups against the Giants. S DeShon Elliott (groin) is off the final injury report and ready to return after missing Week 4.

Dolphins Edge Jaelan Phillips put in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. That's progress after he missed practice all last week with an oblique injury that cost him the Buffalo game. We'll see Friday about Phillips' game outlook. Meanwhile, S DeShon Elliott (groin) graduated to a full Thursday practice. He spent all last week limited before missing the game and then remained limited Wednesday.

Dolphins S DeShon Elliott (ankle, groin) is inactive for today's game against the Bills. That should mean Brandon Jones starting in his place. Jones' struggles in coverage will make Miami's secondary even more vulnerable to the Bills' pass offense. But Jones should be at least as good a bet as Elliott for tackles. Miami has used him heavily as a blitzer in the past, which adds IDP upside. Jones is interesting for fantasy use in an upside matchup for DB tackles.

Lions S Kerby Joseph (back) and S DeShon Elliott (shoulder) sat out Wednesday's practice to open Week 17. Joseph played every snap of Saturday's loss at Carolina and seems like the better bet to rebound. Elliott missed Week 16 after leaving the previous game early and doesn't currently appear in our Week 17 IDP rankings. We'll keep an eye on the status of both safeties through the week.

The Lions have ruled S DeShon Elliott (shoulder) out or Saturday's game against the Panthers. C.J. Moore should start in Elliott's place. He filled in when Elliott left last week's win over the Jets.

Lions S DeShon Elliott left Sunday's win over the Jets with a dislocated shoulder. HC Dan Campbell told reporters Monday that the team is awaiting results from testing on the joint. We'll see whether Elliott is available for this Saturday's game at Carolina.

Lions S DeShon Elliott (concussion) and LB Malcolm Rodriguez (elbow) are active for today's game against the Giants. Rodriguez put in full practices all week but still entered the day questionable, indicating that his elbow is not all the way back. He missed last week's game with the injury after playing just 26% in the game where he hurt it (but returned). Rodriguez looks too risky for most IDP lineups. Elliott should be OK to use at normal levels.

The Lions have ruled S DeShon Elliott (finger), EDGE Charles Harris (groin) and CB Mike Hughes (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

Ravens HC John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win over the Vikings that S DeShon Elliott suffered a torn pectoral muscle and a torn biceps, according to Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun. That will end Elliott's season. Brandon Stephens figures to step into Elliott's role.

Ravens S DeShon Elliott (quad) is active for today's game against the Chargers.
