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.
