Miami Dolphins injuries: Javorskie Lane misses practice

Mike Ehrmann

While Lane was out, Anthony Fasano was limited. Both players have become key blockers in the Dolphins running game.

Miami Dolphins fullback Javorskie Lane (knee) did not practice Wednesday according to the team's injury report. Tight end Anthony Fasano (hip) and linebacker Austin Spitler (ankle) were limited in their participation. The status for all three players remains unclear for Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Lane has two rushing touchdowns for the Dolphins this season and continues to emerge as a surprise in the Miami backfield. He has rushed for 13 yards on 13 attempts, but has improved his blocking a great deal. Lane came seemingly from out-of-nowhere to win a spot on the Dolphins roster this summer, as highlighted in a recent piece in the Miami Herald.

Fasano has caught 21 touchdowns since 2008, according to the Florida Sun-Sentinel. He has also developed a reputation as one of the better blocking tight ends in the NFL. With the status of two of the team's best blockers unknown for the showdown with New England, the Dolphins running game will have to work extra hard to match the 189-yard effort it put up in last Sunday's victory against Seattle.
