The Miami Dolphins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting close to their Week 11 matchup - a game that was originally supposed to be played in Week 1. In getting ready to finally play this game, both teams released their first injury report of the week.
The Dolphins had three players not practice on Wednesday, with defensive end William Hayes, running back Senorise Perry, and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh all out with knee issues. Three Miami players were also limited during the practice, with wide receiver Jarvis Landry having a knee issue, cornerback Bobby McCain with a hamstring problem, and safety Michael Thomas with a knee injury. Finally, the team included guard Jermon Bushrod (shoulder), linebacker Mike Hull (shoulder/ankle), and safety Reshad Jones (groin/shoulder) all listed as full participants in the day’s workout.
On the Buccaneers side of Wednesday’s report, the team saw defensive end William Gholston (neck), cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (hamstring), and quarterback Jameis Winston (right shoulder) all not practice. Winston is expected to miss the game as the team gives his shoulder time to recover, with the quarterback having not played last week as well.
Tampa Bay included defensive end Robert Ayers, with an ankle and calf problem; tackle Demar Dotson, with a hamstring injury; defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, with shoulder and back issues; tackle Donovan Smith, with a knee injury; and guard J.R. Sweezy, also with a knee issue all limited on Wednesday. Cornerback Rober McClain was included on the injury report as a full participant in the practice.
