Dolphins signed WR Brice Butler.

Butler was limited to two games with Dallas earlier this year due to injuries. He adds depth for Miami with DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant sidelined.
Nov 14 - 4:49 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) threw without pain on Sunday.

It was the first time Tannehill has thrown in a week. "It seemed like it went well," Gase said. "It’s not like he’s out there throwing 60-yard throws. They have a progression of how they want to do it. They said it was a good first step and he felt good. So that’s a positive." Miami reportedly hopes Tannehill is able to return following the bye, but that is anything but a given.

DeVante Parker is "week to week" with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

"Week to week" typically means a player will miss the forthcoming game, then be evaluated on a day-by-day basis thereafter. The good news Miami has a Week 11 bye. Parker should have a great chance to return for Week 12.
Nov 12 - 4:41 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant did not tear his Achilles' Week 10 against the Packers.

It is great news after Grant was carted off the field on Sunday. Rapoport reports Grant still "may miss time," but it does not sound like a season-ending injury. Miami is on bye this week.
Nov 12 - 12:36 PM

Brock Osweiler completed 23-of-37 passes for 213 yards and one pick in Miami's dreadful Week 10 loss to the Packers.

In his defense, Miami was without starting tackles Laremy Tunsil and Ja'Wuan James, as well as starting LG Ted Larsen. Even so, Osweiler looked miserable under center and inevitably failed to throw a touchdown for the third consecutive game. Perhaps the Dolphins gets healthy and opt to open up the playbook over their upcoming bye, but the most likely scenario is David Fales taking reps if Ryan Tannehill is unable to return. Miami will again face an uphill battle in Week 12 against the Colts' unwavering pass attack.
Nov 11 - 9:08 PM

DeVante Parker hauled in 5-of-11 targets for 43 yards in Miami's Week 10 destruction from the Packers.

Jakeem Grant (leg) noticeably struggled throughout the game with a limp before being carted off, opening the door for Parker to stick in three-wide sets with Danny Amendola (7/72) and Kenny Stills (2/26). Parker saw a team-high 11 targets, but managed to grasp only five thrown his way. Miami's offense inevitably appeared to finally hit a wall with Brock Osweiler under center. Parker will be an interesting second-half candidate if Ryan Tannehill is able to suit up once the Dolphins return from their bye in Week 12.
Nov 11 - 8:49 PM

Danny Amendola vacuumed 7-of-10 targets for a team-high 72 yards in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers.

Amendola picked up a large chunk of his yards on a 39-yard catch-and-run over the middle of the field in the second quarter. His team-high 72 yards were certainly encouraging, but Amendola's ultimately nothing more than a desperate PPR floor play given that he has yet to eclipse 90 yards in any outing this season. He's actually averaged 8.2 targets since Brock Osweiler took over, so his dwindling value would only plummet further if Ryan Tannehill is able to return in Week 12 after Miami's bye.
Nov 11 - 8:48 PM

Kenny Stills clenched 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Dolphins' Week 10 give-up to the Packers.

He's been removed from the team's injury report in back-to-back weeks, but Stills is obviously still limited by an ailing groin (and shoddy play under center). He's totaled just five catches over the last four games, averaging 2.2 targets in that span. If Stills has any hope of turning back the clock to his performance through the first quarter of the season, he'll need to fully heal over the bye. Hopefully Ryan Tannehill, who showed rapport with Stills, returns fully healed, too.
Nov 11 - 8:46 PM

Kenyan Drake received eight carries for 27 yards, additionally hauling in two catches for 11 yards in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers.

Drake exited early with a shoulder injury, but had only received four touches to Gore's 10 to that point. It obviously doesn't make sense for the Dolphins to keep using Gore on early downs over the younger and more athletic Drake, but that's clearly coach Adam Gase's intention moving forward. Drake isn't anything more than a hold-your-nose FLEX unless Gore misses time.
Nov 11 - 8:14 PM

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 90 yards, adding two catches for 12 yards in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers.

Gore topped 500 yards rushing for a 14th straight season, putting him atop the record books as the only player to do so. Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was forced to exit for a brief stint in the second quarter, but Gore had out-touched him 10-4 to that point, anyhow. Coach Adam Gase has made it clear he wants to keep Gore involved on early downs, simultaneously (and somehow) keeping Drake featured in the Fins' lackluster passing game. It's ultimately resulted in Gore out-touching Drake 36-17 over the last two games. Gore remains a low-upside usage-based play in deeper leagues until further notice.
Nov 11 - 8:02 PM

DeVante Parker (shoulder) is questionable to return for Week 10 against the Packers.

To make matters worse, Jakeem Grant (leg) was carted off at the end of the third quarter. With the Packers holding on to a commanding 28-12 lead in the fourth, it wouldn't be shocking if Parker's day is done.
Nov 11 - 6:52 PM

Jakeem Grant (Achilles) was carted off the field in Week 10 against the Packers.

Grant was limited throughout the week with an Achilles injury, and it seemed to be re-aggravated late into the third quarter Sunday. If it's as serious as a cart usually entails, Grant's season is likely done.
Nov 11 - 6:48 PM

Dolphins CB Bobby McCain (head) won't return in Week 10 against the Packers.

McCain was leveled by rookie Equanimeous St. Brown on a defenseless block. He stumbled off the field and into the locker room with what appeared to be a concussion. His status for Week 11 is currently unknown.
Nov 11 - 6:21 PM

Kenyan Drake (shoulder) is questionable to return for Week 10 against the Packers.

Drake was listed with a shoulder injury earlier in the week despite practicing in full. It eventually caught up with him after he lowered his shoulder on impact in the second quarter. He was getting out-touched 10-4 by Frank Gore at the time of his exit.
Nov 11 - 5:47 PM

Dolphins declared LT Laremy Tunsil, RT Ja'Wuan James, LG Ted Larsen, QB Ryan Tannehill, TE Durham Smythe, and DE Charles Harris inactive for Week 10 against the Packers.

The Dolphins will be forced to fend off Clay Matthews and Nick Perry without both starting tackles and their starting left guard. WR Jakeem Grant is active (as expected), as well. Miami should continue mixing in DeVante Parker, Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills and Grant at receiver Sunday.
