The Miami Dolphins flew out to the west coast on Sunday ahead of their Week 15 contest against the San Diego Chargers. The teams will take the field at 4:25pm ET Sunday afternoon. Ahead of that meeting, they both released their final injury reports for the week.

The Dolphins ruled two players out of the game, offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James and defensive tackle Early Mitchell. The team had hoped that James, who has been dealing with a toe injury for the past six weeks, would be able to return for this game, but they will have at least another week until their offensive line is back to full strength. Mitchell, last week, re-aggravated a calf injury that had bothered him earlier this year, causing him to miss most of the game against the New York Giants and all practices this week.

The Dolphins also will likely be without linebacker Jelani Jenkins, who was ruled doubtful for the game as he deals with an ankle injury.

The full injury report for both teams is:



Ja'Wuan James, tackle - Ankle
Earl Mitchell, defensive tackle - calf


King Dunlap, tackle - Ankle



Jelani Jenkins, linebacker - Ankle


Stevie Johnson, wide receiver - Groin



Rishard Matthews, wide receiver - Ribs
Bobby, McCain, cornerback - Concussion


Ladarius Green, tight end - Ankle
Sean Lissemore, nose tackle - Shoulder
Steve Williams, cornerback - Hip
