Waddle (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's road playoff game against the Bills.
Analysis: Waddle practiced fully Friday and will make his postseason debut. The 24-year-old wide receiver will be catching passes from rookie seventh-round pick Skylar Thompson in the wild-card round, as Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) has been ruled out and Teddy Bridgewater (finger/knee) will dress in a backup role, if he suits up at all. Waddle could also be called upon to return kicks with Raheem Mostert (thumb) unavailable.

Waddle (ankle) remained limited at practice Thursday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: In the wake of back-to-back limited practice listings, Waddle will probably need to work fully Friday in order to approach Sunday's playoff game against the Bills minus an injury designation. That said, earlier this week coach Mike McDaniel indicated that he would be "very surprised" if Waddle didn't play this weekend, per Adam H. Beasley of ProFootballNetwork.com.

Irwin played 12 of the Bengals' 64 snaps on offense and finished with one catch for 12 yards on two targets in Sunday's 27-16 win over the Ravens.
Analysis: In his last outing Week 16 against the Patriots, Irwin registered three catches for 45 yards and two touchdowns, but his production predictably took a step back in the regular-season finale while Cincinnati had all of Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd available and at full health. Heading into this weekend's rematch with the Ravens in the wild-card round of the postseason, Irwin will likely maintain a limited role as the Bengals' No. 4 wideout.

Waddle (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Per Adam H. Beasley of ProFootballNetwork.com, coach Mike McDaniel said earlier this week that he'd "be very surprised" if Waddle is unable to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Bills. That said, the wideout figures to need to return to a full practice by Friday in order to avoid approaching the contest with an injury designation.

Coach Mike McDaniel noted Wednesday that Tagovailoa (concussion) has yet to be cleared for football activities and won't play in Sunday's playoff opener against the Bills, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: For now, the Dolphins are preparing as though Skylar Thompson will draw the start at QB for the team this weekend, while at this stage Teddy Bridgewater (knee/finger) is still working toward being available Sunday. As for Tagovailoa, McDaniel indicated that the signal caller hasn't had any setbacks, but added that there are "compounding variables" that are being considered in determining Tagovailoa's status moving forward.
