Chandler Cox News

Released by Miami

Cox was released by the Dolphins on Saturday.

Analysis: Cox's 2020 campaign in Miami has come to an early halt, finishing the season with two catches on as many targets for nine yards in eight games. He'll be a practice squad candidate upon potentially clearing waivers, but his 53-man roster spot has now been filled by Nate Holley.

Won't suit up Sunday

Cox (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Cox handled a consistent workload before the bye week, as he logged at least 20 percent of the offensive snaps in three of four games. Coach Brian Flores has decided to play without a fullback against a strong Rams front seven, however, so Cox will watch from the sidelines Sunday.

Minor role as a rookie

Cox did not record a carry during 13 games in 2019.

Analysis: Cox was limited to contributing as a blocker on offense as a rookie, and he also played a small role on special-teams. He's not a candidate to gain any fantasy value in 2020, as Cox will likely reprise a similar role in his sophomore season.

Credited with full practice

Cox (shoulder) was estimated as a full practice participant Wednesday, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: The Dolphins did not actually have practice Wednesday, which is why Cox's status is just an estimation. Cox did participate fully in the last two practices of Week 16 before surprisingly being inactive on gameday. Assuming his status doesn't change over the rest of the week, however, the Auburn product will most likely return against New England on Sunday.

Surprise scratch Sunday

Cox (shoulder) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

Analysis: Cox was trending in the right direction after he was a full participant in Thursday's practice and was expected to play. It's unclear what led to his absence ahead ahead of the game, but the team will operate without a healthy fullback for the game.

Expected to play Sunday

Cox (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bengals but is expected to play, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Cox practiced in full Thursday, making his questionable designation seem like more of a precaution than anything else. The fullback will help bolster a Dolphins running attack that has struggled throughout most of the season.

Practices fully Thursday

Cox (shoulder) was a full participant in practice Thursday.

Analysis: Cox turned in a limited session Wednesday but was at full speed just a day later. He looks on track to return Sunday against Cincinnati.

Inactive Sunday

Cox (shoulder) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Cox was listed as doubtful after working as a limited participant all week, so it's no surprise he's not suiting up Sunday. The Dolphins will be without a full-time fullback this week, and Clive Walford should serve as the team's No. 3 tight end.

Doubtful to face Giants

Cox (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Cox logged a trio of limited practices this week, but he doesn't yet appear ready to return to game action. If the rookie seventh-round pick is indeed forced to sit out Sunday's game against the Giants, it'll be a blow to Miami's depth at fullback and tight end.

Exits with injury

Cox (shoulder) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Jets.

Analysis: Cox was forced to leave the game in the third quarter, and the specifics of the injury are unclear. In his absence, it will hurt not only the fullback depth, but the tight end depth as well.
