The Dolphins expect LT Branden Albert (wrist) and LG Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) to play in Week 13 at Baltimore.

The Dolphins really could have used these guys last week against the 49ers, when Jay Ajayi struggled to run between the tackles without them. Miami still won the game and should now have both back against a far stouter Baltimore front.
Dec 2 - 1:43 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (wrist) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday.

The Miami Herald reported Albert has a "better than not" chance to return against the Ravens, and a practice this early in the week suggests that report is accurate. LG Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) also is expected to return after getting in a limited session as well. C Mike Pouncey (hip) remained sidelined.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley reports Dolphins LT Branden Albert has a "better than not" chance to play Week 13 against the Ravens.

Albert has sat out the last two games after dislocating his wrist in Week 10, but he said Monday he is feeling a lot better. With Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) and Mike Pouncey (hip) also sidelined, the Dolphins will welcome back Albert with open arms.
Nov 28 - 12:11 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase indicated Friday that LT Branden Albert (wrist) would need a "miracle" to return for Week 12 against the 49ers.

Albert didn't practice all week after missing Week 11 with a dislocated wrist and is listed as doubtful. Specifically, Gase said Friday that Albert would need "a miraculous recovery" to gain clearance for Week 12. LT fill-in Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) is a game-time decision whose availability depends on "pain tolerance and mobility," according to Gase. C Mike Pouncey (hip) definitely will not play against San Francisco.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (wrist) said he hasn't ruled out playing next week.

Albert is only a week removed from surgery. He reportedly wanted to play though his wrist injury Sunday and is pushing to return after missing only one game. With Laremy Tunsil and Mike Pouncey also sidelined, Miami's offensive line is a mess going into Week 12.
Nov 20 - 8:10 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert is recovering from surgery on his dislocated wrist, and is week to week.

Albert has already been ruled out for Week 11, but apparently could be back as soon as Week 12. Per reporter Armando Salguero, it will "depend on how quickly he can regain strength and stability in his hand." It's a massive loss for a team that didn't get clicking until its offensive line got healthy. First-rounder Laremy Tunsil is filling in on the blindside.
Nov 17 - 4:29 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (wrist) has been ruled out for Week 11 against the Rams.

It's a huge loss for the Dolphins' line, but they may catch a break if Rams RE Robert Quinn (illness) is unable to play after checking himself into a hospital earlier this week. Quinn was released on Tuesday, but it remains unclear if he'll be able to suit up. Rookie Laremy Tunsil will play left tackle.
Nov 16 - 2:28 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert is visiting a hand specialist after dislocating his wrist Week 10 against the Chargers.

Albert has the wrist relocated in the locker room before playing the rest of the game in a cast. "Right now we’re going through the stages of having the hand specialist look at it just to make sure that no further damage can be done," coach Adam Gase said. "Obviously he’s very swollen right now. We’ve gotta just see how this week progresses." Albert will likely miss most of the practice week, but he should play if the specialist determines he cannot do any more damage. Rookie LG Laremy Tunsil slid out to tackle while Albert was in the locker room last week.
