Dolphins coach Adam Gase said DeVante Parker (hamstring) needs to do "the little things" off the field to stay healthy.

Parker tweaked his left hamstring in Monday's practice after missing several weeks of camp with a similar injury. "I feel like I’ve been through this with Demaryius [Thomas] in Denver," Gase said. "Sometimes it takes some guys more time to learn more than others. Eventually ... he will know how to push through certain kinds of pain." Gase is clearly frustrated with the sophomore, who has fallen behind Kenny Stills on the depth chart. Parker still has more fantasy upside than Stills, but he is a risky pick in the eighth round.

Dolphins coach Adam Gase conceded Tuesday that third-round pick Leonte Carroo "has got a little ways to go."

Gase mostly praised Carroo, commending him for his talent and work habits. But he also hinted at why Carroo hasn't made a run yet for work in three-receiver sets. "He doesn't know some of the things he needs to know to help himself," said Gase. "That (comes) a little bit from experience." Parker is the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver behind Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, and DeVante Parker.

DeVante Parker is day to day with an undisclosed injury.

It's rumored to be to his hamstring. Parker pulled up in Monday's practice, but participated in Tuesday's walk-through. He's sitting out Thursday's preseason finale, but would have done so regardless. Injuries are certainly a concern for the second-year wideout, but this one won't affect his status for Week 1.

Dolphins CB Chris Culliver (knee) will begin the season on the reserve/PUP.

It was expected Culliver would start the year on the PUP when the Dolphins signed him earlier this month. He will miss at least the first six weeks, but he could be a valuable mid-season boost for a team desperate at corner. Second-round rookie Xavien Howard, who has missed all of the preseason with a knee injury, is expected to open the year opposite Byron Maxwell in the starting lineup.

Dolphins third-round RB Kenyan Drake confirmed his hamstring is not 100 percent healthy.

Drake will play in the preseason finale, but he is still feeling the effects of a hamstring injury which has limited him all offseason. If it continues to bother him, it would not be surprising if he opens the season on injured reserve. Drake has zero redraft value.
Aug 30 - 12:34 PM

Dolphins placed DE Dion Jordan (knee) on the reserve/NFI list.

The move will prevent him from playing for at least the first six weeks of the season. Despite the injury, Jordan has earned praise from coach Adam Gase for his work ethic since being reinstated. He could play a role this season. LB Zach Vigil also landed on reserve/NFI, getting Miami to the 75-man roster limit.

Ryan Tannehill said he feels "comfortable" in the new offense.

"I feel in charge of our offense now, in command of what we're doing out there," Tannehill added. "It's fun to get out there and get up to the line, get our guys in the right spots and keep the pressure on the defense." Famously not allowed to audible in the last offensive system in Miami, Tannehill is obviously relishing the opportunity to actually play quarterback. With plenty of weapons around him and more rushing upside than he displayed last year, Tannehill is a good candidate to jump back into the low-end QB1 ranks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Kenny Stills' back "locked up" at Monday's practice, and the injury is "not considered serious."

It was initially reported as a leg injury for Stills, but after reading practice reports, it was pretty evident Stills was grabbing at his back after some end-zone work. Consider him day to day. Stills should be fine for Week 1.
Aug 29 - 8:53 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase "appeared concerned" when asked about a leg injury Kenny Stills suffered in Monday's practice.

The Palm Beach Post called it an "apparent lower body injury" suffered when Stills "pulled up at the end" of a route and "collapsed along the right sideline in considerable pain." It sounds like a non-contact injury, which are always a major concern. We will update when more info becomes available.
Aug 29 - 6:01 PM

Dolphins QB Matt Moore (concussion) returned to practice Monday.

Moore took a shot to the head in the second preseason game and had been sidelined ever since. He will serve as Ryan Tannehill's backup this season.
Aug 29 - 12:45 PM

The Dolphins are expected to start second-round CB Xavien Howard in Week 1 against the Seahawks.

Howard missed over three weeks of training camp following an offseason knee scope and hasn't played at all in preseason. He is expected to play in the exhibition finale. While Howard is supremely raw with next to no time in DC Vance Joseph's system, he can't possibly be worse than overmatched Tony Lippett. Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin & Co. should still be licking their chops.
Aug 28 - 3:39 PM

Dolphins rookie RB Kenyan Drake will play in the preseason finale.

It'll be Drake's first exhibition-game action. Drake has been plagued by hamstring injuries since OTAs and dating back to Alabama, but is finally healthy and was reportedly making some plays in the passing game at Sunday's practice. As a third-round pick, Drake's roster spot should be assured.
Aug 28 - 3:35 PM

Dolphins RB Isaiah Pead (hamstring) will miss "at least" two weeks.

Pead's star-crossed career continues. Coming on strong at Dolphins training camp, Pead earned first-team snaps behind Arian Foster and Jay Ajayi in the regular season dress rehearsal before going down. With final cuts on the horizon, Pead couldn't have suffered this injury at a worse time.
Aug 28 - 3:33 PM

Dolphins second-round CB Xavien Howard (knee) is expected to ramp up his workload in practice this week.

Howard sat out the third preseason game, but he should be healthy by the finale next week. He still has a chance to beat out disappointing sophomore Tony Lippett, but Howard needs to prove he has a firm enough grasp of the defense. Coach Adam Gase does not seem concerned. "I wouldn't say he's far behind mentally because he's dialed in to what we're doing," Gase said. "We're going to try to lean on his strength of just matching him up with somebody and letting him go."
Aug 27 - 10:09 AM

Dolphins DE Terrence Fede has a sprained MCL.

Fede suffered the injury Thursday night against the Falcons. Sprained knees usually carry a two-to-four week timetable, making him extremely questionable for the start of the regular season. Fede should fill a rotational role when healthy.
