Dolphins NT Ndamukong Suh (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He's probably just getting a breather after the Monday night game. Suh should return to a full practice on Thursday. The eight-year vet has contributed 27 tackles, 3.5 sacks and two forced fumbles over 488 defensive snaps this season.

Dolphins NT Ndamukong Suh (knee) was removed from the Week 10 injury report.

Suh missed some practice time this week, but his status wasn't in doubt. He should be fine for his normal snaps Monday night. Suh's presence is a downgrade for Christian McCaffrey and Jonathan Stewart.

Dolphins NT Ndamukong Suh (knee) returned to a full practice on Friday.

He'll be good to go Monday night against Carolina. Suh has never missed a game due to injury, though he was suspended for a pair of games in 2011.
Fri, Nov 10, 2017 04:59:00 PM

Ndamukong Suh (knee) expects to be active for Monday's game against the Panthers.

Suh started the week off on the wrong foot, missing practice after tweaking his knee against the Raiders, but has never missed an NFL game with injury. Only suspension. We would expect him to be out there in Carolina.

Dolphins NT Ndamukong Suh (knee) didn't practice on Thursday.

Suh took a shot to the knee in Sunday night's loss to Oakland. It happened on the same play as Marshall Newhouse's notorious fumble. It would be a big loss for the Dolphins if Suh can't go Monday night at Carolina. He holds PFF's No. 2 run-stopping grade among defensive tackles this year.

Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh is recovering from a knee scope.

It's a routine surgery from which Suh should be fully recovered by OTAs, and well before training camp. Still only 30 -- he turned in January -- Suh is coming off another big year where he racked up five sacks, a career-high 72 tackles, and earned PFF's No. 2 grade among 4-3 defensive tackles, trailing only Aaron Donald. The Dolphins have Suh under contract for four more years.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh (knee, questionable) will play Week 12 against the 49ers.

Suh was limited by a knee issue on Wednesday and Thursday, but he was able to get in a full session Friday. There was never much doubt about his availability. The defensive line will also have the services of Mario Williams (ankle) against the 49ers.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said the team wants to have an attacking defense.

"It pretty much sums it up," Gase said. "I mean, I’m sure that we’re making it easy as far as what we’re saying, but for the most part that’s what we want our guys to do." Miami also plans to employ "Wide 9" principles on the defensive line as they attempt to create more pressure. Several Dolphin defenders have played in similar systems in the past including Ndamukong Suh, who said an attacking defense "suited" him well. Miami needs to improve after finishing bottom 10 in total defense, takeaways, and sacks last season.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase expects Ndamukong Suh to take part in OTAs later this month.

Some of Suh's teammates were reportedly "privately steamed" when he blew off "voluntary" practice last month, but he'll be back for the equally "voluntary" OTAs. Suh has followed the same offseason regimen for years, and remained a dominant player throughout.

Dolphins DC Vance Joseph expects DT Ndamukong Suh to have a big year in his system.

Joseph is replacing Kevin Coyle, under whom Suh managed six sacks in 16 starts last year. "Our scheme is going to be an attacking scheme," promised Joseph. "With his size and quickness, there shouldn't be any reason why he shouldn't be successful inside." Suh disappointed after signing a six-year, $114 million contract, but Coyle's scheme and the circus-like environment in Miami did not help. Joseph has said he will focus on getting Suh more 1-on-1s matchups, but Suh is paid big bucks because he should be able to dominate even when offenses are hellbent on stopping him.

The Miami Herald reports Ndamukong Suh's teammates are "privately steamed" about the high-priced defensive tackle skipping voluntary workouts.

Suh annually skips voluntary workouts to train at the Nike complex in Oregon, but it's not sitting well following his controversial 2015 Dolphins debut. Per reporter Adam Beasley, the "vanishing act" is "not playing well with his already-skeptical teammates." Making historic money, Suh will be on the spot in 2016 as the Dolphins once again try to pick up the pieces.
Tue, Apr 26, 2016 03:58:00 PM

The Dolphins restructured DT Ndamukong Suh’s contract.

Miami was $3 million over the cap after transition-tagging Olivier Vernon. Restructuring Suh will save them around $15 million.
Sat, Mar 5, 2016 06:56:00 PM

Ndamukong Suh said he is "excited" about the Dolphins' future.

"We’ve got great players. We’ve got (several) players who participated in the Pro Bowl," Suh said. "That’s a great sign. Now, we have to bring it together as a collective unit." Suh also complimented new coach Adam Gase, who he called "a great coach" and "very fiery and competitive." The Dolphins do have some talent, but they are lacking at key positions on both sides of the ball. Miami will need to restructure Suh's deal to address those needs this offseason.

The Dolphins plan to restructure Ndamukong Suh’s contract.

Restructuring Suh will drop his cap number from $28.6M to $10.4M. After releasing Quinton Coples and Brice McCain, the Dolphins could also cut ties with Greg Jennings and Jordan Cameron.
