The Miami Dolphins and Washington Redskins will face off tomorrow in the first game of the 2015 NFL regular season for both clubs. This Week 1 contest is usually when teams are at their healthiest, with the final injury report fairly light on listed players. This week, that rings true for both Miami and Washington.
The Dolphins come into the game with offensive tackle Jason Fox listed as doubtful, the only player for Miami to be listed on the injury report in any category other than "probable." Fox has been dealing with a concussion since the team's second Preseason contest.
The Dolphins also listed offensive tackle Branden Albert (knee), running back LaMike James (shoulder), wide receiver DeVante Parker (foot), and cornerback Jamar Taylor (thigh) on the report, all probable for Sunday's game.
The Redskins' side of the report listed tackle Tom Compton, dealing with a calf problem, and linebacker Jackson Jeffcoat, with a tight issue, as questionable for the contest. They also added quarterback Robert Griffin III (concussion), defensive end Frank Kearse (shoulder), and center Kory Lichtensteiger (finger) to the list as probable.
The NFL defines the injury categories, with Probable meaning there is a virtual certainty of the individual playing, Questionable meaning the player has a 50-50 chance of playing, and Doubtful meaning there is a 75-percent chance the player will not play.
Miami and Washington kickoff at 1pm ET on Sunday.
