The Miami Dolphins had several changes to their injury report for the week on Thursday.

The Miami Dolphins will face the New York Jets this Sunday in the second-half of their London-and-home series for the year, with Miami "hosting" the London side of the equation. The Jets beat the Dolphins in that first contest, so Miami will be looking to even the season series, as well as win their first game in the AFC East this season. The Dolphins released their updated injury report for Thursday last night, with several changes to the listing.

Remaining the same were safety Walt Aikens, who was limited on Wednesday and Thursday with an ankle injury, as was cornerback Brice McCain with a knee injury, linebacker Koa Misi with an abdominal issue, linebacker Spencer Paysinger with a neck issue, and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard with a hamstring problem. The team also continued to list running back Jay Ajayi as a full participant in workouts despite an elbow injury.

Offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James, who has missed the last three games with a toe injury, has not practiced in either day. James' prognosis when he first injured his toe was that he would miss four-to-six weeks

Changes to the injury report for Miami include offensive tackle Branden Albert and wide receiver Jarvis Landry, who were both given a rest day on Wednesday, returning to practice on Thursday. Albert was listed as a full participant, while Landry was limited due to a knee injury. Linebacker Jelani Jenkins also returned to practice, albeit on a limited basis, as he recovers from an ankle injury that forced him to miss last week's game against the Dallas Cowboys.  Safety Reshad Jones returned to full practice on Thursday after a pectoral muscle injury limited him on Wednesday.

The final change to the injury report for Miami was the addition of defensive end/linebacker Chris McCain to the report with a hip injury. McCain was not listed on Wednesday, but did not practice on Thursday.

The Jets side of the injury report remained fairly consistent between the two days, with the only changes being the return of tight end Kellen Davis, who missed Wednesday's practice for a non-injury related reason, and returned to a full practice on Thursday; wide receiver Brandon Marshall, who moved from limited participation to fully workout with a toe injury; and, offensive lineman Nick Mangold, who did not practice on Wednesday with a hand injury, but returned to a limited workout on Thursday.

The rest of the Jets' injury report includes two players, defensive backs Dion Bailey (ankle) and Darrelle Revis (concussion), who have not practiced this week. The rest of the list are all players who are listed on the injury report, but have fully practiced both Wednesday and Thursday: linebacker Demario Davis (ribs), wide receiver Eric Decker (knee), quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (left (non-throwing) thumb), linebacker Calvin Pace (toe), punter Ryan Quigley (right (kicking) knee), defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson (hamstring), defensive back Bustrer Skrine (shoulder), wide receiver Devin Smith (foot), and defensive back Marcus Williams (knee).
