Miami Dolphins Injury Updates

The Dolphins have ruled S Reshad Jones out for Sunday's game at Buffalo with a chest injury.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones missed practice Wednesday because of what the team called a chest injury. That might explain why Jones' playing time fell to 75% in Sunday's loss to Washington. We'll see about his participation and status the rest of the week, leading up to Sunday's game at Buffalo.

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.

The Dolphins traded DB Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers on Monday for a 2020 first-round pick, according to multiple reports. Fitzpatrick complained openly about the new Miami coaching staff playing him out of position at SS. He'll join a Pittsburgh secondary with a 2018 first-round pick, Terrell Edmunds, starting at that spot. We'll see exactly what the Steelers have planned for Fitzpatrick, who boasts uncommon versatility. Perhaps Fitzpatrick's departure will get veteran S Reshad Jones back to full playing time. Jones missed Week 2 with an ankle injury.

Dolphins LB Raekwon McMillan returned to practice Monday after missing the entire preseason with an undisclosed injury. "Felt good. Back to 100 percent," he told the team website. HC Brian Flores also praised the 3rd-year LB. "Honestly, I've never seen a guy work so hard to get back," he said. McMillan said he doesn't know what his role will be, which points to newcomer Sam Eguavoen continuing to work ahead of McMillan. The former CFL player spent the preseason starting next to Jerome Baker and impressed. Baker hits the regular season as the top IDP option among Dolphins LBs. Eguavoen looks like the next. But you might want to wait and see this LB corps in action before using anyone beyond Baker.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones left Sunday's loss to the Bills early with a leg injury and didn't appear to return. Jones did, at least, supply a pick-6 for IDP owners before leaving.

Dolphins LB Kiko Alonso (knee, ankle) is active for today's game against the Jaguars after arriving "questionable." He's fine for normal IDP usage in a strong scoring matchup. S T.J. McDonald is inactive, as expected. His ankle injury had him doubtful.

Dolphins S T.J. McDonald is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Jaguars because of an ankle injury. He played through it last week after limited practices and a "questionable" tag, missing just 3 snaps of the lopsided loss to the Vikings. But the issue evidently got worse. McDonald missed practice every day this week. CB Xavien Howard (knee) is questionable for the game after managing limited practices all week. He sat out the past 2 games. Howard would be a low-floor IDP against the Jags if active.

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 S Reshad Jones pulled himself from Sunday's win over the Jets in the 1st quarter, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe. The team said Jones' departure was not injury related, and HC Adam Gase said afterward that he'd have to look into the situation more. Personal differences in Miami have already led to RB Jay Ajayi's midseason trade to Philadelphia last year and DT Jordan Phillips' release earlier this season. This situation will be worth watching, with a guy capable of scoring among fantasy's top DBs.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones is active for today's game against the Bengals after missing the previous 2 games with a shoulder injury. S T.J. McDonald is also active despite entering the day questionable with a foot injury. The defense will miss DE Cameron Wake (knee) and CB Bobby McCain (knee). Charles Harris will start in place of Wake.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals. Early-week reports said the team expected him back, but we'll need to check his status Sunday morning. Jones put in full practices Thursday and Friday last week but still missed the game. DE Cameron Wake, however, is doubtful with a knee injury.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones is out for today's game against the Raiders because of a shoulder injury. That leaves Miami's defense without arguably it's best player and chips away at the unit's upside as a starting team defense this week.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Jones missed Wednesday's practice with a shoulder injury before returning to limited workouts Thursday and Friday. We'll check his status Sunday morning.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones missed practice Wednesday because of a shoulder injury he sustained in Sunday's win over the Jets. Jones returned to practice Thursday, though, and finished out the game after hurting the shoulder in the 1st half. We'd bet on him playing against the Raiders this Sunday but will watch the safety's status to confirm.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones is coming off the non-football injury list and joining his team on the practice field Wednesday, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Jones began camp on the NFI because of a calf strain suffered while working out away from the team. It was never believed to be a big issue, but his return before the preseason games even start is welcome. Jones, of course, is also coming off a rotator cuff tear that cost him the final 10 games of last year.

Dolphins S Reshad Jones has yet to take the field in training camp because of a minor calf issue, the Miami Herald reports. The team placed Jones on the non-football injury list last week, but HC Adam Gase didn't reveal until Monday what Jones' injury was. He reportedly tweaked the muscle while working out away from the team and isn't expected to miss much time. We'd still like to see Jones take the field soon to prove he's all the way back from the shoulder injury that ended his 2016 season 10 games early.

Adam Schefter reports that S Reshad Jones has agreed to a 5-year extension with the Dolphins. Injury cut his season short last year, but Jones has turned into an IDP stud when healthy. Expect that to continue.
