Dolphins vs. Patriots injury report: Bess out again, Dansby probable for Fins

USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins will again be without the services of one of their top wideouts when they take on the New England Patriots in a Week 17 AFC East rivalry game.

The Miami Dolphins will take the field Sunday against the New England Patriots without wide receiver Davone Bess, who will miss his third consecutive week of action due to a back injury.

Bess has the second-most catches (61) and receiving yards (778) on the Dolphins, and has also reeled in one touchdown catch. Making matters worse for the Fins is a back injury for fellow wide receiver Brian Hartline, who leads the team in all major receiving categories with 69 catches and 1,014 receiving yards. Hartline is listed as questionable on the Friday injury report for Miami.

Linebacker Karlos Dansby (biceps) is listed as probable for the Dolphins, who will need his contributions against New England and their prolific passing attack. Dansby leads Miami with 121 tackles this season.

Here's the full injury report for Miami heading into their Week 17 matchup against the Patriots:
