Dolphins Injury Update: Cortland Finnegan, Daryn Colledge, Lamar Miller

By on 11/12/2014 12:00:00 PM

As the Miami Dolphins prepare to take on the Buffalo Bills in a critical AFC East matchup Thursday night, they are dealing with some injuries to key players. Here's a look at who is banged up before their official injury report comes out.

Cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle) and left guard Daryn Colledge (back) did not practice on Tuesday. At this point both guys look unlikely to play Thursday night. With left tackle Branden Albert (knee) already out, Miami's offensive line is looking thin against a formidable Bills' defensive line.

Running back Lamar Miller (shoulder) is dealing with a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, but he practiced in a limited fashion on Tuesday and should be able to suit up against the Bills. But the Dolphins may deploy a backfield committee Thursday night, with Daniel Thomas, LaMichael James and Damien Williams all potentially getting some work.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill (right shoulder/ankle) was limited in practice this week, but Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald suggests there is "no doubt" about his availability for Thursday night.

Defensive tackle Earl Mitchell (abdomen), defensive tackle Anthony Johnson (back), defensive end Derrick Shelby (knee) and guard Mike Pouncey (hip) all practiced fully on Tuesday. The team's official injury report will bring more clarity to the status of all four, but probable designations seem likely.

Tight end Charles Clay (knee), defensive end Dion Jordan (hamstring), linebacker Kelvin Sheppard (hip/groin), tight end Dion Sims (toe), linebacker Koa Misi (ankle), safety Jimmy Wilson (hamstring) and long snapper John Denney (knee) were also limited during Tuesday's practice.

Taking the fantasy football angle, the status of Tannehill, Miller and Clay bear monitoring before plugging them into a lineup on a short week.
