The Dolphins have signed RB Duke Johnson to their practice squad. The 28-year-old spent a couple of weeks on Jacksonville's practice squad in September but has otherwise been unemployed since being released by the Texans in February. There's opportunity in after RB Malcolm Brown was placed on IR, but Johnson is only worth adding in the deepest of fantasy leagues right now. We'll see if he gets promoted to the active roster.

Dolphins RB Malcolm Brown will be placed on IR with a quad injury suffered in Sunday's loss to the Falcons, HC Brian Flores said Monday. Brown will be out at least the next 3 weeks vs. the Bills, Texans and Ravens. He's played 28% of Miami's offensive snaps and averaged 4.7 carries and .7 targets per game, so his absence leaves behind a little extra work for RBs Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed.

Dolphins LB Jerome Baker left Sunday's loss to the Falcons with a knee injury. ESPN's Marcel Louis-Jacques reports that Baker already had an MRI and that it "came back clean." We'll see about the LB's availability for Week 8 at Buffalo. Sam Eguavoen wound up leading Miami LBs with 84% snap share against Atlanta.

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 WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Falcons. Preston Williams (groin) is active and figures to operate as Miami’s #2 WR behind Jaylen Waddle.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) has "an uphill battle" to play against the Falcons today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Parker was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable. Parker should be on fantasy benches for now. We'll get Miami's inactives around 11:30 am ET.

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 WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder) and Preston Williams (groin) are listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. Both guys were limited in practice all week. We’ll get Miami’s inactives around 11:30 am ET on Sunday.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder) and Preston Williams (groin) remained limited on Thursday. Both guys seemingly have a chance to return for this weekend's game vs. the Falcons, but we'll get another update tomorrow.

Dolphins WRs DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder) and Preston Williams (groin) put in limited practices on Wednesday. That gives them a shot to return for this weekend's game vs. Atlanta. We'll get another update on both guys tomorrow.

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.

Dolphins WR Preston Williams (groin) is inactive for today’s game vs. Jacksonville. With WRs DeVante Parker and Will Fuller also out, Miami is down to WRs Jaylen Waddle, Mack Hollins, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford. TE Mike Gesicki should continue to play a big role in the passing game.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is active for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. It’s Tua’s 1st action since getting knocked out early in Week 2. Jacksonville ranks 24th in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs, but Tagovailoa is missing WRs Will Fuller, DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) has been activated from IR and remains on track to start Sunday morning's game vs. the Jaguars in London, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That's a plus matchup -- but Tagovailoa will be without WRs Will Fuller (finger) and DeVante Parker (hamstring, shoulder).

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.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (shoulder, hamstring) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. WR Preston Williams (groin) is listed as questionable, while WR Will Fuller (finger) remains on IR. Jaylen Waddle, Mack Hollins, Albert Wilson and Isaiah Ford are Miami's healthy WRs right now.

Dolphins HC Brian Flores confirmed that QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) is on track to start Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars, barring a setback between now and then. We wouldn't trust Tagovailoa in starting lineups outside of 2-QB leagues, but he should be an upgrade over QB Jacoby Brissett for Miami's offense.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) will practice on Wednesday, HC Brian Flores said. “We’re excited to have him back," Flores added. Tagovailoa seems to be trending toward returning for Sunday's game vs. Jacksonville, but we'll keep you updated on his status.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (hamstring) did not practice on Wednesday. We'll see if he gets back on the field over the next 2 days, but fantasy owners shouldn't plan on him playing vs. the Jaguars in London this weekend.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) has been activated from IR. It makes him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Jaguars but doesn't necessarily mean that he will. We'll track Tagovailoa's progress over the next few days.
