Dolphins LT Branden Albert is now sidelined with an illness.

The Dolphins aren't disclosing the issue, only saying it's "not spreading." Albert was previously battling an ankle issue. His Week 6 status is unclear. With Laremy Tunsil (ankle) also sidelined, Billy Turner, who got destroyed against the Titans, could be forced to make another start.

Dolphins declared LT Branden Albert (ankle) inactive for Week 4 vs. the Bengals.

LG Laremy Tunsil, drafted in the first round as a tackle, will kick over to the blindside. Albert was a game-time decision, and should be back for Week 5. Also inactive for the Dolphins are RB Arian Foster, C Mike Pouncey, C Anthony Steen, LB Jelani Jenkins, LB Koa Misi and TE Jordan Cameron. With Pouncey and Steen sidelined, the Dolphins are down to their third-string center.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Bengals.

Coach Adam Gase was optimistic about Albert's odds of suiting up for Thursday Night Football, but it sounds like his status will be decided by his pre-game workout.
Sep 27 - 3:13 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert said he is down to 313 pounds.

Albert said he lost the weight because he is "getting kind of older" and wants to help his "joints and knees." Albert struggled with injuries early last season, but he bounced back for a solid second half. As long as he can stay healthy, Albert should help the line take a step forward this year.
May 31 - 2:05 PM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 6 against the Titans.

Albert was limited throughout the week and is expected to return coming off Miami’s bye. The entire Dolphins offense took a step back without him. Albert is an upgrade in the run game and on Ryan Tannehill’s blindside

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (hamstring) is expected to return in Week 6.

It's a big development for an offensive line that failed miserably to open run-game alleys and protect Ryan Tannehill before a Week 5 bye. Swing-tackle journeyman Jason Fox had been filling in for Albert on Tannehill's blind side.

Dolphins declared LT Branden Albert, DT A.J. Francis, WR Matt Hazel, DB Tony Lippett, RB Raheem Mostert, TE Dion Sims and G Billy Turner inactive for Week 4 against the Jets.

This marks Albert's second absence in a row. Just as he did last week, Jason Fox will fill in at left tackle. Miami has a bye next week, giving Albert some extra time to get ready for Week 6 against Tennessee.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (hamstring) is out for Week 4 against the Jets.

It's his second straight absence. Jason Fox will draw another start at left tackle. The injury-prone Albert should be considered week to week.
Fri, Oct 2, 2015 10:48:00 AM

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (hamstring) says he's "day to day."

However, the Miami Herald reports there are "real concerns" Albert will miss Sunday's game in London against the Jets. Jason Fox wasn't a disaster in Albert's place against the Bills, but his presence was still sorely missed. Despite that, the Dolphins would likely be best served by giving Albert Sunday and next week's bye off. There's no need to rush a player only recently returned from a torn ACL.

Dolphins LT Branden Albert (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

The Dolphins' offensive line is reeling entering a date with Buffalo's dominant defensive front. Albert's absence is a big concern for Ryan Tannehill.
Fri, Sep 25, 2015 02:22:00 PM

There are "real concerns" about Dolphins LT Branden Albert's Week 3 availability.

"I’m day by day, just taking it one day at a time," Albert said Thursday. "Hopefully I’ll be out there soon. We’ll see." The Dolphins will be in real trouble if Jason Fox has to guard Ryan Tannehill's blindside against the Bills' ferocious defensive line.
