Week 2 of the NFL season is getting ready to start, with the Miami Dolphins set to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. A matchup of the two Florida AFC teams, the game will feature Miami trying to move to 2-0 on the year while cleaning up the lackluster play from Week 1, while the Jaguars will be looking to put last week's 20-9 loss to the Carolina Panther behind them and get their first victory of the year.

Both teams are coming in to this week's game with some major contributors listed on the injury report. For the visiting Dolphins, that includes safety Reshad Jones, defensive end Derrick Shelby, and tight end Dion Sims all non-participants in Wednesday's practice. Jones is dealing with a hamstring injury, while Sims is in the league's concussion protocol, and Shelby has an eye injury. The list of players not taking part in practice on Wednesday is longer for the Jaguars: linebacker Thurston Armbrister (back), defensive end Andre Branch (knee), safety Jonathan Cyprien (finger/calf), safety Josh Evans (ill), running back Toby Gerhart (abdomen), and tackle Luke Joeckel (ankle).

The limited portion of the report, players who practiced but did not complete all of the drills on the day, listed defensive ends Olivier Vernon (ankle) and Cameron Wake (hamstring) for Miami. Jacksonville listed cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), wide receiver Rashad Greene (back), wide receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring), defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks (knee), and tight end Julius Thomas (hand).

The Dolphins did not list anyone on the report in the "full participants" category, which is usually players working their way back from lower levels of the report, or players who may have been injured in the last game, but were taking part in every drill on Wednesday. The Jaguars' section of the list includes: cornerback Aaron Colvin (shoulder), wide receiver Allen Robinson (knee), and running back T.J. Yeldon (knee).

The Dolphins and Jaguars kickoff at 4:05pm ET Sunday.
