DeVante Parker (back) is practicing Wednesday.

He missed all three practices last week before catching 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards and a touchdown. He'll be fine to play against the Cardinals at home. Likely to see Patrick Peterson, Parker will be a WR3/4.

The Dolphins remain "hopeful" C Mike Pouncey (hip) will return this season.

Speaking Monday, Pouncey himself said he was unsure if he would play again in 2016. He has four games to get back. Pouncey seems highly unlikely to return for Week 14.
Dec 5 - 2:34 PM

Dolphins activated DE Jason Jones from the reserve/suspended list.

Jones served a two-game ban stemming from a summer arrest for operating a vehicle while intoxicated. He'll be a rotational lineman down the stretch.
Dec 5 - 2:33 PM

Dolphins MLB Kiko Alonso has undergone surgery for a broken thumb, but could continue playing.

Coach Adam Gase wasn't clear if he meant Alonso could return this week, or this season. Alonso played through the injury on Sunday, but it's obviously a different matter now that he's required/undergone surgery. Alonso has enjoyed a decent bounce-back season in the middle for Miami. Mike Hull will fill in if Alonso can't return.

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey (hip) is unsure if he will play again this season.

"I don't know. We'll see how it goes," Pouncey said. The center did say his hip "feels good" and he is making progress, but that progress has clearly been slow. On the bright side, the Dolphins did get LT Branden Albert and LG Laremy Tunsil back against the Ravens.

Kenny Stills snared two-of-five targets for 21 yards Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Four of his targets came after halftime with Miami in catch-up mode. As you can see by his paltry stat line, Stills wasn’t able to take advantage. He was the intended receiver on Ryan Tannehill’s third interception of the game. Stills has topped 50 yards receiving just once in his last five games and is barely a WR5 in fantasy. He'll get the Cardinals in Week 14.
Dec 4 - 5:39 PM

DeVante Parker corralled three-of-four targets for 34 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Parker didn’t catch his first pass until late in the first half. He was bottled up by Jimmy Smith for most of the afternoon but salvaged the day for fantasy owners by scoring a late touchdown. Parker wasn’t expected to suit up on Sunday but convinced the coaching staff to let him play through a back injury after going through pregame warmups. He should be closer to 100 percent next week but could be shadowed by Patrick Peterson in a tough matchup with Arizona.
Dec 4 - 5:02 PM

Jay Ajayi collected 61 yards on 12 carries and caught six-of-seven targets for 26 yards Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Ajayi had a strong first half, turning eight carries into 43 yards. The Dolphins stopped running the ball in the second half but Ajayi stayed active by catching five passes after halftime. Ajayi has cooled off over the last month but game script was to blame for his latest disappointment. He’ll be safe to fire up as an RB2 in next week’s home game against Arizona.
Dec 4 - 5:00 PM

Jarvis Landry pulled in 11-of-14 targets for 87 yards Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

Landry did almost all of his damage after halftime as the Dolphins attempted 26 second-half passes. He made a boneheaded play in the first half by stepping out of bounds on third down with 1:06 remaining. That gave Baltimore enough time to boot a field goal to end the half. Landry was also the intended receiver on the second of Ryan Tannehill’s two interceptions. The 14 targets and 11 catches were both season-highs. Landry should maintain WR3 status next week against the Cardinals. He could be matched up with slot corner Tyrann Mathieu, depending on Mathieu’s health.
Dec 4 - 4:57 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 29-of-40 passes for 226 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions and rushed for no gain Sunday in the Dolphins' Week 13 loss to the Ravens.

He was sacked twice for a loss of 11 yards. This was a meltdown of the highest degree. Tannehill straight up stunk on Sunday and seemed to get worse as the game went on. He showed almost no awareness, repeatedly throwing into tight coverage with disastrous results. The three interceptions were as many as he had thrown in his previous seven games combined. Even with a healthy offensive line to protect him—something he hasn’t had in recent weeks—Tannehill could only complete short passes and consistently made the wrong decision. It was a huge step back for the Dolphins’ fifth-year signal caller. Tannehill has another tough game coming up against Cardinals in Week 14, though at least that’ll be a home game.
Dec 4 - 4:54 PM

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett returned to Sunday's Week 13 game against the Ravens after passing the concussion protocol.

He missed a handful of snaps in the second quarter after trying to wrestle down Steve Smith Sr. Bobby McClain filled in while Lippett was getting checked for a concussion.
Dec 4 - 2:37 PM

Kiko Alonso (hand) has returned to Sunday's Week 13 game against the Ravens.

He missed most of the first half with a hand injury. Alonso was playing well before he got hurt with five tackles on the first two drives. Mike Hull filled in at middle linebacker during his brief absence.
Dec 4 - 2:17 PM

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett is being evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return to Sunday's Week 13 game against the Ravens.

Lippett suffered the injury while trying to wrap up Steve Smith Sr. in the second quarter. He logged two tackles before exiting. Bobby McCain replaced Lippett at cornerback. It's been a rough day for the Dolphins' defense so far after losing both Lippett and linebacker Kiko Alonso to injuries.
Dec 4 - 2:07 PM

Kiko Alonso left Sunday's Week 13 game against the Ravens with a hand injury and is questionable to return.

Alonso recorded five tackles before exiting about midway through the first quarter. Mike Hull is Alonso's backup at middle linebacker.
Dec 4 - 1:37 PM

DeVante Parker (back) is active for Week 13 against the Ravens.

It's a stunning development after Parker was considered a long shot to play earlier this morning. He'll have a tough assignment this week going against Jimmy Smith (back), who is also active. TE Thomas Duarte, T Bryce Harris, CB Xavien Howard, LB Jelani Jenkins, CB Jordan Lucas, C Mike Pouncey and WR Rashawn Scott round out Miami's inactive list for Week 13. Brandon Albert (wrist), Kiko Alonso (hamstring), Jermon Bushrod (calf), Kenyan Drake (knee), Earl Mitchell (back) and Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) are all active for the Dolphins.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Given Parker's situation, it’s a great time to look at Jarvis Landry. Baltimore ranks 1st in rush DVOA, according to Football Outsiders, so the Phins will likely struggle on the ground. With Parker hobbled, Tannehill could spread some of his looks to Landry, who will avoid Jimmy Smith in the slot. Landry is a solid option, especially on full PPR sites.
