The Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints are preparing for a 9:30am ET kickoff on Sunday from London, a Week 4 meeting across the pond. Both teams have updated their injury reports for the week following their Thursday practices.
The Dolphins saw running back Jay Ajayi fully rejoin practice after missing it on Wednesday with a knee issue. Linebacker Rey Maualuga also moved into the full participant list after being limited on Wednesday with a hamstring that has bothered him all season, while safety Nate Allen’s hamstring is listed on the report, but has not stopped him being able to practice thus far this week.
In the “limited” category, the Dolphins continued to list linebacker Chase Allen (neck), linebacker Kiko Alonso (shoulder), long snapper John Denney (hamstring), wide receiver Jakeem Grant (ankle), and wide receiver Kenny Stills (hand). Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips moved up from a non-participant on Wednesday to a limited participant on Thursday after an ankle injury. Cornerback Alterraun Verner and guard Isaac Asiata both were added to the injury report on Thursday as limited participants, with a hamstring and an ankle injury, respectively.
Two players were non-participants on Wednesday, with center Mike Pouncey continuing his day-on, day-off pattern with the team managing his chronic hip issues, and tackle Eric Smith’s knee downgrading him from limited on Wednesday.
For the Saints, two players were added to the report, with both fullback John Kuhn (biceps) and running back Adrian Peterson (rest) non-participants Thursday. The Saints had three players continue to be limited on Thursday, with cornerback Sterling Moore (chest), tackle Zach Streif (knee), and linebacker Nathan Stupar (hamstring) all on the report. Joining them as limited after not practicing on Wednesday was tackle Terron Armstead, who has a shoulders issue.
The Saints removed cornerback Marshon Lattimore from the report following his concussion.
