Miami Dolphins News

Jakeem Grant, Limited to start week

Grant (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Grant is looking somewhat iffy for Week 3 due to an ankle sprain, so it's encouraging to see that he's at least able to handle limited practice reps. With quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) already ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, the Dolphins will need all the help they can get at the skill positions.

Tua Tagovailoa, Sidelined by fractured ribs

Coach Brian Flores confirmed Wednesday that Tagovailoa is dealing with fractured ribs and will be out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: As a result, Jacoby Brissett slated to start Sunday, at a minimum, while Reid Sinnett is in line to be promoted to Miami's active roster from the team's practice squad. Beyond Week 3, Tagovailoa should be considered week-to-week, but at this stage we'll consider him iffy for the Dolphins' Oct. 3 contest against the Colts.

Jason Sanders, No opportunities Week 2

Sanders did not attempt a field goal or extra point during Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Sanders was victim to an unusual gamescript during Sunday's divisional loss, with Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) having been forced out early in the first quarter, and Jacoby Brissett then unable to get the offense moving in relief action. He converted his lone field-goal attempt (48 yards) against the Patriots in Week 1, along with both extra-point tries.

Preston Williams, Little doing in return to action

Williams secured one of three targets for two yards during Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills.

Analysis: Williams didn't have many opportunities to make a splash Sunday, as Jacoby Brissett struggled mightily in relief of Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) while facing down Buffalo's stout defense. Per David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, Williams feels completely healthy after making his 2021 season debut. The Dolphins could opt to ramp up Williams' involvement as the season progresses, and he only handled 30 percent of offensive snaps versus the Bills, but he'll be even harder pressed for opportunities once Will Fuller makes his Miami debut.

Tua Tagovailoa, Labeled day-to-day

Coach Brian Flores described Tagovailoa (ribs) as "day-to-day" Monday, adding that the team is still running tests on the quarterback's rib injury, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Flores also said that Tagovailoa's still in pain from the injury, which knocked him out of Sunday's 35-0 loss to the Bills. The day-to-day label suggests Tua likely isn't in danger of missing substantial time due to this injury, though his status for the Dolphins' Week 3 trip to Vegas remains up in the air. If Tua can't go in Week 3, Jacoby Brissett -- who failed to lead the offense to any points in more than three quarters of action against Buffalo -- would start under center, and Miami would have to make a roster move to bring in a backup option behind Brissett.
