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.
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 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 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 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.
