Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and CB Byron Jones (Achilles', groin) are both active for today's game against the Falcons. Both players missed Miami's last game. Their return certainly helps the pass defense. EDGE Jaelan Phillips (ankle) is active for the game as well. He entered the day questionable.

Dolphins CBs Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and Byron Jones (Achilles', groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Both missed last week's game. Howard put in limited practices this week after sitting out last and should at least be close to playing. Jones was also limited all week but followed that same practice schedule last week before missing the game. We'll update both on Sunday morning when the inactives come out.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and CB Byron Jones (Achilles', groin) are inactive for today's game against the Jaguars. That leaves Miami's defense without its top 2 corners, which can only enhance the matchup for Jacksonville WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault.

The Dolphins have ruled CB Xavien Howard out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London. Howard missed practice this week, listed with shoulder and groin injuries. His absence leaves Miami without 1 of its top 2 corners. That can only help the matchup for Jacksonville WRs Marvin Jones and Laviska Shenault.

Bengals WR Tyler Boyd was ejected with about a minute left in the 1st half of Sunday's game against Miami after getting in a fight with CB Xavien Howard, who was also tossed. Boyd caught 1 of 4 targets before exiting -- but it went for a 72-yard TD. We don't expect Boyd to be suspended for Week 14.

Dolphins lead CB Xavien Howard is active for tonight's game against the Steelers. Howard missed the past 2 games with a knee injury but returns to likely see a lot of JuJu Smith-Schuster in coverage. Howard remained limited in practice all week.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones (ankle) is active for today's game against Washington. He played through a "questionable" designation in Week 4 as well -- before the bye -- and played a full game. Jones should be in IDP lineups for Week 6. Miami's top CB, Xavien Howard, is inactive with a knee injury. That helps the outlook for lead Washington WR Terry McLaurin.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso (ankle, hamstring) is active for today's game against the Bills. He's expected to play after sitting out a week ago despite being active then. Alonso will be risky but also in play for IDP usage. CB Xavien Howard (knee) and S T.J. McDonald (ankle) are inactive.

Dolphins S T.J. McDonald (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills. It'll be the 2nd straight game he has missed. LB Kiko Alonso (knee, hamstring) is questionable for the 2nd straight week. Alonso was active last week but didn't play a snap. It sounds like Alonso will actually play this time around. HC Adam Gase told the South Florida Sun Sentinel on Friday: “He looks a lot better this week. It’s probably good that we didn’t play him [last week] because it could have gotten worse. He could have pulled it. He looks night and day from what I saw Sunday.” The hamstring appears to be the bigger issue. If active, Alonso will be usable this week. But he'll also carry elevated risk. Lead Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee) is also questionable after missing the past 3 weeks. He's not an IDP factor, and his status shouldn't matter for any particular Bills WR option.

Dolphins lead CB Xavien Howard will likely miss Sunday's game against the Patriots because of a knee injury, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. HC Adam Gase deemed Howard "week to week" in a Wednesday press conference, which generally indicates a player isn't expected to be ready for the coming game. That's bad news for the Miami pass D but good news for owners of Patriots WR Josh Gordon. We'll keep an eye on Howard's status heading into the weekend -- and then beyond.

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 CB Xavien Howard is active for today's game against the Falcons. He entered the day questionable with a shoulder issue but is fine to use as a low-level IDP.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard will miss at least a month after re-injuring the meniscus in his right knee in a collision with WR Kenny Stills at practice earlier this week, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Howard had the meniscus in that knee repaired in July. HC Adam Gase said his return will depend on "how the rehab goes." Expect opponents to target Miami's CBs even more than they have to this point. The situation will help the fantasy values of opposing WRs while also creating tackle opportunities for Dolphins corners. Tony Lippett's expected to shift over to Howard's spot and give Byron Maxwell his starting job back.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard missed Wednesday's practice after suffering a knee injury in Tuesday's workout, according to The Associated Press. HC Adam Gase said it's not serious, but we'll keep an eye on the rookie's status and participation into the weekend. Miami CBs have made attractive targets in coverage for opposing QBs, which helps the tackle numbers that drive the scoring in most IDP leagues.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (knee) is active after entering the weekend questionable. He carries big tackle upside against a Patriots offense sure to target him in coverage.

The Dolphins traded up with the Ravens in Round 2 to draft CB Xavien Howard out of Baylor. Howard brings good size -- 6'2, 200 pounds -- and plus athleticism and snared 9 INTs over the past 2 years. But PFF also charged him with 9 TDs allowed over that span. Howard stands a good chance to start right away in Miami, and his combo of ball skills and allowing completions could be good for his IDP value.
