The Miami Dolphins received their fair share of good news over the course of the week, seeing both Matt Breida and DB Jamal Perry return from the reserves / COVID-19 list, also suits several key players for practice; Hopefully Miami was a lock they didn’t have in Week 15 against the New England Patriots.
Having their best available player at their disposal leads to a half-fight late in the season, as the highlight of the 16-game season will take a toll on each roster during the league. Miami will still be without the likes of DT Devon Godchaux, WR Preston Williams and potential RB Miles Gaskin (Reserve / COVID-19) – but a quick review of the rest of Miami’s roster indicates that Miami needs to have its active roster There must be completeness to play to play on Sunday.
The Last Week 15 injury report lists a slew of dolphins as ‘suspicious’, but no one is ‘suspicious’ or confirmed. Players are listed as suspects here.
Te Mike Gesiki (shoulder)
FS Bobby McCain (ankle)
RB Salon Ahmed (shoulder)
OL Ereck Flower (ankle)
WR Jacob Grant Sr. (hamstring)
WR DeVante Parker (hamstring)
LB Ellandan Roberts (Chest)
LB Kyle Van Noy (hip)
LB Jerome Baker (knee)
You might feel a bit nervous when you consider this group of players in Miami as suspicious when you consider the impact these few players have on the game. But also remember that Airec Flowers was shut down against Cincinnati and Mike Gesicki suffered a major shoulder injury in the fourth quarter against the Chiefs. Given his apparent seriousness of injuries, his chances for a New England game are a win. And with Kyle Van Noy and Alandon Roberts playing a week of rest and not playing against the majors, the hope is that they too can return to the field and help the Dolphins get back to their winning ways.
