Albert Wilson
Albert Wilson is 'most likely' headed to IR
Tue, Oct 23, 2018, 5:37 PM
Adam Schefter on Twitter
ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Dolphins will "most likely" place Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve.
Analysis: Wilson doesn't need hip surgery, but the Dolphins want to give him time to recover correctly, so he will hit the injured reserve. Wilson, who in theory could return very late this season, is still only 26 years old and will be back with the Dolphins next season. With Kenny Stills ruled out for Week 8, the Dolphins will trot out Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant, and DeVante Parker.
Danny Amendola
Danny Amendola still 'limited' on Tuesday
Tue, Oct 23, 2018, 12:25 PM
Danny Amendola (shoulder) remained "limited" on Tuesday.
Analysis: There does not seem to be any concern about Amendola's Thursday night status. With Kenny Stills and Albert Wilson out, Amendola will be in the WR3 mix.
Albert Wilson
Albert Wilson formally ruled out for Week 8
Tue, Oct 23, 2018, 12:19 PM
Albert Wilson (hip) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Texans.
Analysis: Kenny Stills (groin) has also been ruled out, leaving Danny Amendola and Jakeem Grant as the Dolphins' top-two wideouts. DeVante Parker should also be active after his recent de facto healthy scratches.
Charles Harris
Charles Harris (calf) will not play Thursday

Barry Jackson on Twitter
Dolphins DE Charles Harris (calf) will not play Thursday against the Texans.
Analysis: Harris has been sidelined since suffering a calf injury in practice ahead of Week 6, and the early rule out is not a great sign for his availability moving forward. In better news, Miami did get Cameron Wake back last week.
Ryan Tannehill
Ryan Tannehill ruled out for Week 8
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 3:21 PM
Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 8.
Analysis: Brock Osweiler will make his third straight start. Tannehill was droppable weeks ago in 14-team leagues. He remains without a known timetable to return.
Brock Osweiler
Osweiler to get another start
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 3:19 PM
Coach Adam Gase confirmed Monday that Brock Osweiler will start in Week 8 against Houston.
Analysis: Ryan Tannehill remains week to week with a shoulder injury. Osweiler has held his own through two weeks and was not the reason for the Dolphins' Week 7 loss. He'll get his shot at a "revenge" game Thursday night against the Texans.
DeVante Parker
Gase: DeVante Parker will play in Week 8
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 3:14 PM
Coach Adam Gase confirmed Monday that DeVante Parker (quad) will play in Week 8.
Analysis: The Dolphins visit the Texans on Thursday Night Football, and Parker is on track to start on the outside opposite Jakeem Grant with Danny Amendola in the slot. Parker's agent recently blasted Gase and the organization, but they need his client now with Kenny Stills ruled out and Albert Wilson likely headed to I.R. Battling a quad injury, Parker has played fewer than 40 snaps on the year.
Kenny Stills
Fins rule out Kenny Stills (groin) for Week 8
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 3:09 PM
Kenny Stills (groin) has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Texans.
Analysis: "And we'll see after that," coach Adam Gase said on Monday. The Dolphins' three-receiver set on Thursday Night Football will have Jakeem Grant and DeVante Parker on the outside with Danny Amendola in the slot. Stills has drawn five targets or fewer in all seven games. He can be dropped in 14-team leagues.
Danny Amendola
Danny Amendola limited with shoulder injury
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 3:01 PM
Danny Amendola was listed as a limited participant in Monday's practice.
Analysis: Amendola has been Brock Osweiler's favorite receiver through two starts, and he is on track to be an underrated WR3 play in PPR leagues on Thursday Night Football against the Texans. His injury status is still worth monitoring, though.
Albert Wilson
Albert Wilson (hip) visiting specialist
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 12:20 PM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Albert Wilson (hip) is visiting a specialist to determine the severity of his injury.
Analysis: All we really know is that Wilson is going to miss multiple games. Even if it's not a season-ending issue, Wilson will probably be sent to injured reserve to heal. He's droppable in all formats of fantasy.
Kenny Stills
Kenny Stills dealing with strained groin
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 10:53 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Kenny Stills suffered a groin strain Week 7 against the Lions.
Analysis: Stills suffered the injury on the final drive. Rapoport danced around a timetable, but he did suggest Stills has little chance to play Thursday against the Texans. With Albert Wilson (hip) also out, the Dolphins are down to Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant, and disgruntled DeVante Parker at receiver.
Albert Wilson
Albert Wilson's (hip) season in doubt
Mon, Oct 22, 2018, 8:17 AM
Ian Rapoport on Twitter
Agent Drew Rosenhaus said Albert Wilson's hip injury could cost him the season.
Analysis: "The best-case scenario is that he would miss a few weeks," Rosenhaus added. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Wilson is dealing with a labral issue in his hip. With Kenny Stills also injured, the Dolphins are down to Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant, and a disgruntled DeVante Parker at receiver.
Nick O'Leary
Nick O'Leary has another two-catch day
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:47 PM
Nick O'Leary caught 2-of-3 targets for 23 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.
Danny Amendola
Danny Amendola has season-best day
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:43 PM
Danny Amendola caught 6-of-7 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.
Analysis: With DeVante Parker inactive and Albert Wilson (hip) banged up early, Amendola posted a new season-high for yardage. He now has 14 grabs on 18 targets over his past two games. With Kenny Stills joining Wilson on the shelf late against the Lions, Amendola could have some Week 8 relevance against the Texans.
Mike Gesicki
Mike Gesicki posts career-high 44 yards
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:41 PM
Mike Gesicki caught 3-of-3 targets for 44 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.
Analysis: Gesicki was also evaluated for a concussion but thankfully cleared. The 44 yards were a new career high. He could break that number again in Week 8 if neither Albert Wilson (hip) nor Kenny Stills (leg) can get cleared for Thursday Night Football against the Texans. That being said, Gesicki will remain a last-gasp TE2.
Jakeem Grant
Jakeem Grant posts 32 yards in Miami loss
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:39 PM
Jakeem Grant caught 2-of-2 targets for 32 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions.
Analysis: Grant has just 84 yards receiving over his past four games but will likely be needed for a bigger role in Week 8. Both Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills got banged up against the Lions, and the Dolphins are headed on a short week for Thursday Night Football. Grant is a waiver wire add to keep in mind.
Frank Gore
Frank Gore held to 33 yards vs. Lions
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:31 PM
Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 29 yards in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions, adding a four-yard reception.
Analysis: Gore out-touched Kenyan Drake 11-10 but got out-gained 87-33. It was Gore's least-productive game since Week 3. Coach Adam Gase has made it clear his backfield usage is not going to change. Gore will be a low-upside RB3 for Week 8's Thursday night game against the Texans.
DeVante Parker
DeVante Parker's agent calls out Adam Gase
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:29 PM
Palm Beach Post
DeVante Parker's agent confirmed he's fully healthy.
Analysis: Parker was a surprise inactive despite practicing fully all week. With Albert Wilson (hip) going down, the Dolphins could have used Parker Sunday in a shootout loss to Detroit. This looks similar to the Jay Ajayi situation last year, with friction between Parker and Miami's coaching staff. Parker is a strong candidate to be traded at next week's deadline.
Kenyan Drake
Kenyan Drake out-gains Frank Gore 87-33
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 4:29 PM
Kenyan Drake rushed six times for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Lions, adding four receptions for 15 additional yards.
Analysis: 62 percent of Drake's yardage came on his 54-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Drake exploded through the hole and was not touched until he shed some tackles near the goal line. Although he got out-touched 11-10 by Frank Gore, Drake out-gained his backfield mate 87-33. Everyone knows Drake is the more explosive player, but Gore isn't going anywhere. Drake will remain a risk/reward FLEX for Week 8's Thursday night tilt with the Texans.
Albert Wilson
Albert Wilson dealing with a hip injury
Sun, Oct 21, 2018, 3:55 PM
Armando Salguero on Twitter
The Miami Herald confirms Albert Wilson is dealing with a hip injury.
Analysis: Wilson was previously listed with a leg injury. He'll undergo an MRI to determine the severity, but with Miami playing on Thursday night, he's likely out this week. The Dolphins may be forced to hold on to DeVante Parker if Wilson misses extended time.
