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 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 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.
