NFL injury report: Gaffney, Mastrud limited in Dolphins practice Wednesday; Bess sits out

Team is relatively healthy headed into Thursday night game with Buffalo, but Bess's absence is troubling.

Two members of the Miami Dolphins offense were limited in practice Wednesday, according to the team's injury report. Wide receiver Jabar Gaffney and tight end Jeron Mastrud appeared in the report with knee and hamstring injuries, respectively. Gaffney was a full participant on Monday, and has emerged as the Dolphins No. 3 receiver. Mastrud has been limited all week, according to the Florida Sun-Sentinel. Both are listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Buffalo.

Miami head coach Joe Philbin spoke positively about Gaffney's contribution to the receiving corps.

"I think he is making progress," Philbin told CBS Miami. "He runs routes pretty smooth and he understands how to get open. I see him developing no question."

In addition to Gaffney and Mastrud, an interesting story continues to develop around Dolphins receiver Davone Bess, who has missed practice all week for a non-injury-related issue. Bess has 536 receiving yards this season, and would be a major help for rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill against the Buffalo defense. Bess's status remains uncertain for Thursday's game.
