All of Miami's injuries from Sunday appear to be minor.

The Miami Dolphins' win over the Oakland Raiders was the best kind for head coach Joe Philbin because the team also came out of the victory virtually free of injury.

The most significant injury on Sunday came to cornerback Richard Marshall, who left the game in the first half with a back injury. Marshall, who plays some nickel cornerback for Miami, did not return to the game. He had three tackles against Oakland before departing.

Rookie running back Lamar Millier appeared to do something to his ankle in the win. Although he did not leave the game, his ankle was heavily taped afterwards.

Defensive end Cameron Wake was on the sidelines longer than usual on Sunday, but it is still unclear whether that was because of an injury or a defensive scheme.

The Dolphins' next game is home against the New York Jets on Sunday.
