The Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins will kickoff their respective 2015 regular seasons with a Sunday afternoon matchup. As the teams prepare for their contest, they released Thursday evening their latest injury reports, which, until Friday's update, tracks the practice level of any player who is unable to take part in the full practice. Friday afternoon, the injury report will transition to the "Probable," "Questionable," and "Out" listing we all normally see.
The Dolphins reported left tackle Branden Albert, who is recovering from a torn ACL and MCL in his knee suffered last year, and wide receiver DeVante Parker, rehabbing after foot surgery in June, as full participants in Thursday's practice. Both players expect to play in Sunday's contest, and, based on their practice participation, that may be a valid assumption. Miami tackle Jason Fox (concussion), running back LaMike James (shoulder), and cornerback Jamar Taylor (thigh) were all limited in the workout. Fox had been held out of practice on Wednesday, so he is progressing toward rejoining the team fully, while James was not on the injury report Wednesday.
The Redskins continue to hold tackle Tim Compton (calf) out of practice, while quarterback Robert Griffin III (concussion) was limited on Thursday. Defensive end Frank Kearse (shoulder) was a full participant. There were no changes for Washington from Wednesday's report.
