The Miami Dolphins will host the New York Jets this Sunday at Sun Life Stadium, and both teams are battling injuries to key players. Thursday's practice was a big day in determining who will be ready to go and who won't for Sunday's contest. As it relates to the Dolphins, several players were able to participate.
Safety Jimmy Wilson, running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, and linebackers Koa Misi and Jonathan Freeny were all able to participate fully in practice on Thursday. Limited in practice on Thursday for the Dolphins were wide receiver's Marlon Moore and Anthony Armstrong, and cornerback Richard Marshall. Unfortunately, defensive tackle Tony McDaniel did not participate in practice on Thursday.
A players full participation in practice late in the week is a good sign that they'll be ready to go on Sunday. Limited participation is always questionable and players listed under that status are typically game-time decisions.
The Dolphins will be looking to move to 2-1 on the season after blowing out the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, 35-13. In that game, Reggie Bush carried the ball a career-high 26 times for 172 yards and two touchdowns. In two games in his career against the Jets, Bush has carried the ball 16 times for 108 yards.
