The Miami Dolphins will visit the New England Patriots this Sunday in the second half of their season series. Miami won the first meeting, back in Week 1 of the season, and will be looking to complete the season sweep of the division leading Patriots.

They will be playing the game without guard Nate Garner, who will miss the game with an illness, and defensive tackle Anthony Johnson, who is out with an ankle injury. The Patriots ruled out defensive lineman Dominique Easley as well.

Miami's injury report continued with a trio of linebackers all listed as doubtful for the contest. Starters Jelani Jenkins (foot) and Koa Misi (hamstring/knee) as well as reserve Jonathan Freeny (hamstring) all with a 75-percent chance of not playing.

While the Dolphins listed just four players under questions, the 50-50 category for chances to play on Sunday, the Patriots continued their tradition of listing anyone they possibly can under the classification. Miami's list included tight end Charles Clay (hamstring/knee), cornerback Cortland Finnegan (ankle), linebacker Chris McCain (ankle), and cornerback Jamar Taylor. New England's list had offensive lineman Dan Connolly (ankle), wide receiver Julian Edelman (thigh), offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (shoulder), defensive end Chandler Jones (hip), wide receiver Brandon LeFell (shoulder), defensive end Rob Ninkovich (heel), running back Shane Vereen (ankle), and linebacker Chris White (ankle).

The probable list for Miami included safety Walt AIkens (illness), defensive end Dion Jordan (ankle), tight end Dion Sims (neck), and safety Jimmy Wilson (hamstring). For the Patriots, the only player in the probable category is quarterback Tom Brady with an ankle injury.

Kickoff on Sunday is at 1pm ET.
