Mike McDaniel announced yesterday that Nik Needham and Robert Jones would begin their 21-day injured reserve return window, both of whom could provide an impact on their respective sides of the ball for the Miami Dolphins. Needham is recovering from an Achilles injury he sustained last season and was placed on the PUP List after training camp. Jones suffered a knee injury during the Dolphins preseason and thankfully avoided a major injury scare. If the Dolphins do not activate either of these two within the next 21 days, they would have to miss the remainder of the 2023 season.

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