Jay Cutler (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday.

He exited Sunday's game with a concussion and remains in the league's protocol. Matt Moore would draw his second start of the year if Cutler isn't cleared to face New England in Week 12.

Jay Cutler remains in the concussion protocol.

Coach Adam Gase said they'll wait it out and decide on a quarterback later in the week. At this point, it doesn't really matter who starts between Cutler and Matt Moore. The difference between the two is marginal.
Nov 22 - 12:10 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirmed Jay Cutler is in the concussion protocol.

It is not a surprise after Cutler was ruled out in the second half of the Week 11 loss. Gase said there is "no reason" Cutler would not be his starter if he is healthy, but he is not a lock to be cleared in time to face the Patriots on Sunday. Matt Moore will get the start if Cutler has to sit.

Julius Thomas caught all four of his targets for 30 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

Even with a touchdown in each of his past two games, this is the Thomas we've seen for most of the year. He's now had more than four catches in just one game and topped 30-yards receiving just twice on the season. He is not an option next week against New England.
Nov 19 - 6:41 PM

Matt Moore completed 17-of-28 passes for 282 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Moore entered the game at the start of the second half with Jay Cutler going through concussion protocol. He brought the Dolphins back from a 20-7 deficit to tie the game with three minutes left, connecting with Kenny Stills on a 61-yard bomb. This was the second time on the season that Moore entered the game in jailbreak game script and looked sharp, but even if he draws the start in Week 12, he will only be a QB2 option against a Patriots defense that has gotten better as the season moves along.

Kenyan Drake rushed seven times for four yards with one reception for 10 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

After notching 104 and 92 yards from scrimmage over the past two weeks, this was a hard fall for anyone that used Drake on Sunday. He out-snapped Damien Williams 38 to 27 in the game, but was out-touched by Williams 11 to eight. Drake has now had 15, nine and eight touches since the Dolphins shipped Jay Ajayi to Philadelphia. That is hardly the type of volume to confidently play Drake as more than a flex option moving forward against the Patriots in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 6:20 PM

Damien Williams rushed 10 times for 78 yards while catching one pass for 24 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Williams started off hot on Sunday, ripping a nice weaving 69-yard run on the second play from scrimmage for the Dolphins, but that moment was fleeting as Miami fell behind and played catchup for the remainder of the game. Williams managed to out-touch Kenyan Drake 11 to eight on Sunday, but Drake still played 38 snaps to 27 for Williams with the Dolphins playing from behind. Williams is a deeper flex option next week against the Patriots.
Nov 19 - 6:11 PM

DeVante Parker caught 4-of-9 targets for 26 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

It was an overall tough day for Parker as he had a tough catch bounce off his hands for one of Jay Cutler's three first-half interceptions and fell down on another. All four of his catches after Matt Moore entered the game in the second half, but he was behind Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry in the pecking order. Parker has been a pedestrian fantasy option on the season, but one that had come with a sturdy floor up until today. He had at least 66 yards in all of the full games he had played on the season, but if Moore continues to start moving forward, then Kenny Stills compromises that floor for Parker.
Nov 19 - 5:58 PM

Kenny Stills caught 7-of-8 targets for 180 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

The Stills and Matt Moore battery struck again in a big way on Sunday. Stills had just one reception for 26 yards in the first half with Jay Cutler before he and Moore connected six times for 154 yards in the second half. His final reception was a 61-yard touchdown that tied the game at 20-20 with three minutes left in the game. Stills now has caught four of the past five touchdown passes thrown by Moore dating back to last year. If Moore remains under center, Stills will be an option next week against the Patriots.
Nov 19 - 5:52 PM

Jarvis Landry caught 6-of-11 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Buccaneers.

Landry's 2-yard touchdown in the second quarter was his league-leading sixth touchdown catch from inside of the 10-yard line on the season. Landry had a 49-yard catch and run to open the second half from Matt Moore, which is promising moving forward if Jay Cutler is going to miss time because Landry has been a sketchy fantasy performer with Moore under center over the past year and a half. Even if Moore starts next weekend, continue to use Landry as a WR2 against the Patriots in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 5:44 PM

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the game as he remains in concussion protocol.

Cutler suffered the injury on a hit to the head on the final play of the first half. Prior to injury, Cutler was having one of his worst halves of the season, completing 6-of-12 passes for 83 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Cutler threw an interception of three of the first four drives for Miami surrounding a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry.
Nov 19 - 3:34 PM

Dolphins G Jermon Bushrod is questionable to return in Sunday's Week 11 game against the Buccaneers after suffering a foot injury.

Bushrod exited the game in the third quarter and tried to work the foot injury out on the sideline before heading back to the locker room. His return to the game is questionable.
Nov 19 - 3:17 PM

Dolphins QB Jay Cutler is in the concussion protocol.

Cutler took a forearm to the head on a scramble to close the first half and did not come out for the second half of Sunday's game as he is being evaluated for a concussion. Matt Moore has taken over as quarterback for the Dolphins.
Nov 19 - 2:54 PM

Dolphins WR Kenny Stills (back) is active for Sunday's Week 11 game versus Tampa Bay. G Isaac Asiata, QB David Fales, DB Jordan Lucas, WR Leonte Carroo, OT Zach Sterup, RB De'Veon Smith and CB Torry McTyer are inactive for Miami in Sunday's game.

Stills had a scare late in the week with a back ailment that forced him to leave Thursday's practice and miss Friday. Suiting up on Sunday, Stills has an attractive matchup versus a Tampa Bay secondary allowing the most receptions per game to opposing wide receviers, but remains a boom or bust WR4 option as he's yet to have more than five receptions or 67 yards in a game in which DeVante Parker has played.
Nov 19 - 11:42 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms Kenny Stills (questionable, back) is expected to play Week 11 against the Buccaneers.

Stills exited Thursday's practice with back spasms and wasn't on the field for Friday's session. It looks like Stills will tough it out Sunday against Tampa Bay, though he could be at risk of an in-game setback. Even in a good matchup, he's just a dart-throw WR4.
