Shark Bites

The Dolphins on Thursday placed LB Kyle Van Noy and DL Christian Wilkins on the COVID list. The team didn't announce whether the players tested positive or just had contact with someone who did. The timing challenges their availability for Sunday's game against the Chargers. We'll see whether Van Noy or Wilkins can make it back for game day, but you should plan as though they won't.

Recent Shark Bites

The Dolphins have agreed to terms with Mike McDaniel to become the team's next HC. McDaniel spent 2021 as San Francisco's OC after serving as the run-game coordinator the previous 4 seasons. McDaniel arrived with Kyle Shanahan, whom he had also worked under with the Falcons, Browns, Washington and Texans. McDaniel got his NFL start as an intern with the 2005 Broncos, coached by Mike Shanahan. So we should expect a strong Shanahan influence on McDaniel's offensive approach in Miami. He inherits an offense with QB Tua Tagovailoa heading into Year 3 and WR Jaylen Waddle coming off a terrific debut campaign. Plenty of questions need to be answered, though, with "TE" Mike Gesicki and multiple WRs facing free agency. The Dolphins also sport an unsettled backfield that found Duke Johnson leading in rushing yards per game last season. This will be an interesting offense to watch through the offseason, especially because McDaniel looks like a potential plus for the unit.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (ankle, elbow) is inactive for today's game against the Giants. EDGE Jaelan Phillips (hip) is active, however, and an upside play for pressure-friendly IDP leagues.

Dolphins S Brandon Jones (ankle, elbow) and EDGE Jaelan Phillips (hip) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants. Both players put in limited practices all week. Jones missed last week's game with the same injuries after a week of limited practices. Phillips' issue is new. We'll check the status of both potential IDP options Sunday morning.

Dolphins CB Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and CB Byron Jones (Achilles', groin) are both active for today's game against the Falcons. Both players missed Miami's last game. Their return certainly helps the pass defense. EDGE Jaelan Phillips (ankle) is active for the game as well. He entered the day questionable.

Dolphins CBs Xavien Howard (shoulder, groin) and Byron Jones (Achilles', groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Both missed last week's game. Howard put in limited practices this week after sitting out last and should at least be close to playing. Jones was also limited all week but followed that same practice schedule last week before missing the game. We'll update both on Sunday morning when the inactives come out.
