Shark Bites

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 S T.J. McDonald (ankle) is active for today's game against the Vikings. He's fine for normal IDP usage and sits near the top of our DB rankings for the upside matchup at Minnesota.

Dolphins S T.J. McDonald (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game at the Vikings after being limited in practice all week. McDonald didn't miss a single snap of last week's win over the Patriots, though. We'd bet on him being active this week as well but will check on his status Sunday morning.

The league has suspended S T.J. McDonald for the 1st 8 games of 2017 for violating the substance-abuse policy. That'll put a huge dent in the 26-year-old free agent's pursuit for a new team. He's also fine to drop in dynasty fantasy football leagues at this point.

Update: Well, it must not have hurt him too much. McDonald reached a deal with the Dolphins on Friday, according to multiple sources.

Rams S T.J. McDonald was arrested Tuesday in Los Angeles on suspicion of driving under the influence of an unknown substance, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. McDonald reportedly struck a parked car, and officers believe he was under the influence of "something other than alcohol." This doesn't seem like it'll turn into a big issue for McDonald, but the incident could cost him a game or 2 via league discipline. We'll see how things play out for a potential top-20 fantasy DB in 2016.

As expected, Rams S T.J. McDonald is active and ready for today's finale at Seattle.  An illness forced him to miss some practice time and rendered him questionable for the game.
