One of the biggest changes to the running back position has been the addition of LeGarratte Blount. In the 3 games he's played, Blount has run for 202 yards on 42 attempted rushes and 2 touchdowns. Jonas Gray and Brandon Bolden are the backups, while Shane Vereen and James White take up the third-down back role.
At wide receiver, there was supposed to be plenty of competition for Brandon LaFell's position, but he has had an outstanding NFL season. Aaron Dobson was also placed on injured reserve last Friday.
The offensive line and tight end position remains intact since the Dolphins last game against the Patriots in Week 1.

In the trenches, Sealver Siliga has been activated back on to the 53-man roster having been placed on injured reserve. It will be interesting to see how he figures on the depth chart on Sunday as Chris Jones and Dominique Easley have played well since his absence. Easley primarily lines up as the interior pass rusher in third down situations.
At corner, Malcolm Butler is the only player at the position that hasn't started a game, but has received his fair share of snaps as an undrafted rookie. At safety, Harmon is the backup deep safety and will come on to the field when McCourty plays in the box or when the Patriots play Cover 2.

Long snapper Danny Aitken was released by the Patriots in August, but was re-signed by the team less than a week later. Amendola keeps his position as the primary kick and punt returner.
