Dolphins coach Adam Gase said suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons is "taking the steps to make it back."

The Dolphins haven't provided much on Timmons since he went AWOL before Week 2. He can be suspended for up to four games under the CBA, but there's a good chance he'll return before that. Despite rumblings the Dolphins could move on from Timmons, his contract and Miami's lack of linebackers strongly suggests he'll be back with the team.
Sep 22 - 8:15 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) practiced again on Friday.

Landry will be all systems go for Sunday's cake matchup with the Jets.
Sep 22 - 2:05 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) returned to Dolphins practice on Friday, getting in a full session.

Parker sat out Thursday's session, but beat reporters all along insisted he was in no danger of missing Week 3. He will be a high-ceiling play against the Jets.
Sep 22 - 2:05 PM

Jay Ajayi (knee) returned to a full practice on Friday, but he "seemed to have a slight hitch when running."

The Miami Herald also reports Ajayi had a black sleeve on his right knee. Ajayi entered the NFL with concerns about his knees, and slipped to the fifth round of the draft when his college tape and athleticism both suggested he should have gone early on day two. We expect Ajayi to play against the Jets, but his health is now a real concern. Damien Williams is his direct backup.
Sep 22 - 1:47 PM

Jay Ajayi (knee) was officially "DNP" on Thursday.

Coach Adam Gase has essentially already guaranteed Ajayi will play, but it would be nice to see him return to a "limited" session on Friday. Headed for a gorgeous matchup with the Jets, Ajayi will be an elite RB1 if he suits up.
Sep 21 - 3:55 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) was held out of Thursday's practice.

It's a downgrade from Wednesday, when Parker was "limited." Coach Adam Gase hasn't expressed much concern about Parker's status, but mid-week downgrades are never good news. It could mean Parker's ankle didn't respond well to Wednesday's practice. Parker's Friday status will be key. Fantasy owners should consider Parker genuinely questionable, and begin plotting a back-up plan.
Sep 21 - 3:54 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) returned to practice on Thursday.

He was officially "limited." Beat writer Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald said Landry was "practicing some," which suggests he got in a limited session. Landry was absent from Wednesday's practice, but should be fine for Week 3 against the Jets. He pulled in a whopping 13 receptions in last week's opener, though he only averaged six yards per catch.
Sep 21 - 1:46 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jay Ajayi's knee injury is not serious.

Ajayi was given the day off Wednesday, but there was never much concern about his availability for this week. Ajayi is a high-end RB1 against a Jets defense which is likely to be without Muhammad Wilkerson.
Sep 21 - 12:43 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Jarvis Landry's knee injury is not serious.

Both Landry and Jay Ajayi were given Wednesday off because of knee injuries, but neither issue is serious. Landry will be ready to face the Jets coming off a 15 target outing in the season opener.
Sep 21 - 12:42 PM

When asked about suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said, "I would say that you can be forgiven if the right steps are taken."

He was suspended indefinitely after going AWOL over the weekend. There have been rumblings of Miami potentially parting ways with Timmons, though Roy Cummings of Florida Football Insiders believes Gase has now established a "path" for his reinstatement. To make up for the loss of Timmons, the Dolphins acquired Stephone Anthony from the Saints earlier this week.
Sep 20 - 6:59 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a new injury after Parker caught 4-of-9 targets for 85 yards last week. The limited practice suggests he's dealing with a mild sprain. Parker's status will be updated Thursday.
Sep 20 - 4:25 PM

Jay Ajayi (knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

We're guessing Ajayi is just getting a maintenance day after logging an exhausting 28 carries in last week's season opener. Ajayi was listed with a knee injury last week as well but wasn't on the final injury report. He's in a great spot against the Jets this week.
Sep 20 - 4:23 PM

Jarvis Landry (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Landry popped up on the injury report with a knee issue last Friday, but ultimately played against the Chargers and led the Dolphins with 13 catches for 78 yards on 15 targets. It could just be a rest day for Landry, who was riding the bike at practice. We'll update Landry again no later than Thursday.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Landry currently owns the lowest air yards per target in the league (3.2). On the opposite end of the spectrum, DeVante Parker is 5th with 18.3 air yards per target and he accounted for 47.7% of the team's total air yards (2nd). A popular breakout candidate, Parker has a beautiful matchup with the Jets secondary this weekend. Last week, Cutler aimed for Landry a ton due to Parker's tough draw against Casey Hayward; this time around, he'll be looking for Parker. Most importantly, he'll be looking for him deep downfield. Parker could be in for a massive game.
Sep 20 - 1:30 PM

Dolphins acquired LB Stephone Anthony from the Saints in exchange for a 2018 fifth-round pick.

It's a flier for the linebacker-needy Dolphins and a dump for the Saints. The No. 31 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Anthony flopped badly in New Orleans. He struggled as a rookie and was benched as a sophomore. He's currently recovering from a high-ankle sprain. He'll be a warm body for the Dolphins once he gets back to full health.
Sep 19 - 6:37 PM

Dolphins suspended SLB Lawrence Timmons indefinitely for violating team rules.

Dealing with a personal situation, Timmons went AWOL from the team on Saturday night. He was reportedly back with the club on Monday, but the Dolphins have decided the transgression must be punished. "Indefinite" team suspensions have a way of lasting only a game or two, but Timmons' situation is extremely murky. Anything from one week to the Dolphins moving on completely is on the table. Under the CBA, four weeks is the max length of Timmons' suspension. The ban should void the $4.5 million guaranteed in Timmons' deal.
