After an extra long week off due to the Thanksgiving game with Dallas, Miami enters their Week 13 matchup with the Oakland Raiders with a nearly full roster of healthy players. As of Friday afternoon, the last report before the inactive list on Sunday, the Dolphins listed only three players on their injury report.
Guard Vernon Carey is listed as doubtul for Sunday, and did not practice on Friday. Carey is struggling with a bum ankle.
Safety Yeremiah Bell is listed as questionable. Bell practiced on Friday, but was limited in what he was allowed to do. Bell is trying to heal a foot injury in time for Sunday.
Kicker Dan Carpenter was listed on Friday's report, but he is probable for Sunday. Carpenter has a right groin issue he is dealing with but did fully participate in practice.
The report is certainly encouraging for the Dolphins, who will enjoy nine full days off by the time Oakland travels across country for Sunday's game. If they lose on Sunday, rest and health will certainly not be excuses they can lean on.
