For the second straight day, Connor Williams missed practice with a groin injury he has been dealing with for the past couple of weeks. Williams was able to play last week, but had to miss the Miami Dolphins week four matchup. All signs point to Liam Eichenberg getting his second start at center this Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. His first start came back in week 4 when the Buffalo Bills and we all know how that game panned out. However, the Dolphins face the winless Panthers and it’s totally understandable if Mike McDaniel wants Williams to sit out against what should be an easy opponent.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
