The Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns have released their final injury reports for their upcoming Week 3 match up. The NFL changed the categories of the injury report this year, removing the “probable” category, leaving just questionable, doubtful, and out as designations for players.

The Dolphins, who will be at home for the first time this year, ruled out two players: running back Arian Foster, who is dealing with a groin injury, and center Mike Pouncey, who has a fractured hip. The Browns, meanwhile, ruled out five players: wide receiver Corey Coleman, who broke his hand in practice this week, defensive end Ibraheim Campbell, who has a hamstring issue, center Cameron Erving, who is dealing with a bruised lung, quarterback Josh McCown, who has a shoulder injury, and defensive lineman Carl Nassib, who has an injured hand.

For the Dolphins, Foster being out means the team will likely again turn to Jay Ajayi as the starting running back, though the team could use some combination of Kenyan Drake, Isaiah Pead, and Damien Williams as well. Pouncey will continue to be replaced by Anthony Steen as the team’s starting center.

Miami’s questionable list included six players: cornerback Xavien Howard (knee), linebacker Jelani Jenkins (knee), defensive end Jason Jones (ankle), linebacker Koa Misi (shoulder), wide receiver DeVante Parker (hamstring), and linebacker Spencer Paysinger (neck). The Browns listed cornerback Joe Haden (groin) and kicker Patrick Murray (knee) as questionable.

Cleveland also included several players earlier in the week on the injury report, but all of them are expected to play. Defensive lineman Stephen Paea was limited in Wednesday’s practice with an elbow injury, but was a full participant the rest of the week. The same can be said for defensive lineman Danny Shelton, who was listed with a knee injury, and tight end Randall Telfer, dealing with a neck issue. Finally, tackle Joe Thomas did not practice on Wednesday, listed as “not injury related,” and returned to practice on Thursday and Friday.
