The Miami Dolphins and Carolina Panthers have to wait until Monday night before they will play their Week 10 match up, a game that will end the week and a streak of three consecutive prime-time games for the Dolphins. Will Miami be able to put up a win for the first time during this streak?
It appears the Dolphins will be at full strength - well, at least as at full strength as they can be this late in the season and not including the injured reserve players, a list to which Ja’Wuan James was added this week. Miami listed six players as injured, but all of them were in the “questionable” category, meaning they can be available for the game. Those players include wide receiver Jakeem Grant (illness), linebacker Mike Hull (shoulder/ankle), guard Ted Larsen (biceps), cornerback Bobby McCain (hamstring), safety Michael Thomas (knee), and running back Damien Williams (illness).
On the Carolina side of the report, only one player finished the week on the injury listing, with center Ryan Kalil ruled out of the contest with a neck injury.
Can the Dolphins use their relative healthy state to actually put together a full 60-minute performance on both sides of the ball? Can they end a two-game losing streak and move back about .500 for the season? Will the Panthers’ top ranked defense keep Miami’s struggling offense from finding any sense of rhythm in the game?
