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.
