The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills are two days away from their second meeting of the 2015 NFL season. Both teams are coming off long preparations, with the Bills having a Week 8 bye and the Dolphins getting 10 days between their Thursday night game in Week 8 and the Sunday Week 9 contest. As the teams prepare for their AFC East divisional showdown, they have released their final injury reports for the week.
The Dolphins listed 13 players on their injury report, starting with ruling out of the game offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James, who injured his toe just four snaps into the Week 8 game against the New England Patriots. Wide receiver DeVante Parker and safety Jordan Kovacs were both listed as doubtful for the game, neither having practiced throughout the week, with respective foot and knee injuries.
Tight end Jordan Cameron (hamstring), linebacker Neville Hewitt (hamstring), defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (knee), and running back Damien Wiliams (thumb/ill) were all listed as questionable for the game, meaning they are 50-50 to play on Sunday. The team listed six players as probable for the game, with cornerback Brent Grimes, dealing with a knee and a ribs injury, safety Reshad Jones, with a lingering shoulder issue cornerback Brice McCain, who has a knee problem, linebacker Koa Misi, with a foot problem, quarterback Matt Moore, who had surgery on a broken nose last week, and linebacker Spencer Paysinger, with a shoulder injury, all listed in the category.
