The Miami Dolphins lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday, dropping the game on a last minute field goal. While we all just wat to put the game behind us and hope the team begins executing better by the time the Buffalo Bills arrive in South Florida for this upcoming weekend's AFC East showdown, we also need to go back and check out the snap counts from the game.
Each week, we look at the number of offciial plays for each Dolphins player, split between the offense and the defense. We also keep track of the season totals for each player, calculating the percentage of available season snaps they have played. (Due to a technical difficulty, the season percentage graphics is not displayed. As soon as possible, it will be added.)
During Sunday's game against the Jaguars, the Dolphinshave five players take every offensive snap, with offensive linemen Mike Pouncey, Dallas Thomas, Ja'Wuan James, and Jamil Douglas all joining quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The fifth starting offensive lineman, tackle Branden Albert, was only able to appear in 28-percent of the plays, sustaining both a hand and a hamstring injury during the contest. He was replaced by Jason Fox, who played the other 72-percent of the plays.
The wide receivers saw Jarvis Landry (88-percent) and Rishard Matthews (78-percent) lead the way, with Greg Jennings (57-percent) and Kenny Stills (51-percent) not far behind. Rookie DeVante Parker, after playing one snap in Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, took part in one-quarter of the offense this week, continuing to grow into his role in the offense as his foot continues to rehab from offseason surgery.
Tight end Jake Stoneburner appeared in over half the team's offensvie plays (54-percent) after being on the practice squad for the Week 1 contest. Starter tight end Jordan Cameron was relegated to 41-percent of the plays after sustaining a groin injury.
Starting running back Lamar Miller suffered an ankle injury in the second half of the game, sidelining him in the second half after playing 57-percent of the game's offensive plays. Damien Williams, Miller's primary backup, made an appearance on 46-percent of the snaps.
Finally, defensive tackle Earl Mitchell played one snap on offense, appearing as a fullback.
