Andrew Luck (shoulder) is questionable for Thursday night's Week 5 game against the Texans.
Expectations from around the team are that Luck will start Thursday night. Coach Chuck Pagano has acted extremely secretive about Luck's status, hiding him from the portions of practice open to the media, so we can't be certain Luck will be under center until inactives are announced Thursday evening. For now, pencil Luck into lineups as a high-end QB1 against Houston's bottom-eight pass defense.
Tevin Coleman (ribs) returned to practice Wednesday.
He was limited. Coleman will likely return to the lineup this week against the Redskins, but he's lost his starting job to Devonta Freeman, who's amassed six touchdowns over the past two weeks. Coleman will likely handle 6-10 carries as the No. 2 back, moving fellow rookie Terron Ward back to third-string duties.
Redskins RCB Chris Culliver underwent an MRI on his left knee Wednesday.
Culliver played through a sore knee last week, but didn't practice Wednesday. The Redskins can ill afford to lose anymore players in the secondary, especially with Julio Jones on tap for Week 5. Culliver has received extremely poor marks from Pro Football Focus for his coverage through three games this season.
Julius Thomas (hand) was limited in Wednesday's practice.
Thomas has been limited the past couple weeks, but he did get more good news Wednesday. After only being able to run routes lately, Thomas has progressed to being able to catch passes in practice. He still has yet to be cleared for games, though. Week 6 is looking like the earliest Thomas will make his debut.
Brian Hartline (ribs, thigh) is not practicing Wednesday.
Hartline got dinged up in Week 4, but didn't suffer any broken ribs. He's on pace to catch just 32 balls for 492 scoreless yards this season. Same old Hartline.
Interim coach Dan Campbell wouldn't commit to retaining DC Kevin Coyle.
The Dolphins are on their bye week, and Campbell just conducted his first practice as the new head coach. He doesn't need to rush into making a decision on Coyle, but it'd be wise to make a call one way or another before they start prepping for Week 6. The Dolphins have reportedly contacted all three of ex-Bills DC Jim Schwartz, ex-Falcons coach Mike Smith, and ex-Bucs coach Greg Schiano.
LeSean McCoy (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday.
He remains week-to-week, even though coach Rex Ryan wouldn't rule him out for Week 5. McCoy could be looking at another 2-3 weeks, if he's serious about not playing until he's 100 percent. With Karlos Williams (concussion) also not practicing Wednesday, Boobie Dixon operated as the No. 1 runner.
Sammy Watkins (calf) remains sidelined at practice Wednesday.
As did LeSean McCoy (hamstring). Watkins' injury isn't believed to be anything more than a day-to-day issue, but he's teetering on the edge of questionable-to-doubtful for Week 5 against the Titans. Percy Harvin and Chris Hogan started last week before Robert Woods entered to play in three-wide sets.
