Dolphins signed DT Kendrick Norton.

The 2018 No. 242 overall pick has been on the Panthers' practice squad this season, but the Dolphins have signed him to the active roster. The rookie surprisingly entered the draft after his junior season at Miami and will likely be an early-down run defender if he can get on the field.
Dec 18 - 6:50 PM

Dolphins coach Adam Gase said Kenyan Drake's limited role has nothing to do with an injury.

Even with Frank Gore sidelined most of the game, Drake touched the ball four times against the Vikings as the Dolphins used Kalen Ballage as their primary back. There was some thought Drake's lingering shoulder injury was to blame for the usage, but that is apparently not a factor. Gase has to be commended for getting the Dolphins to out-pace their win expectation year after year, but he has consistently mishandled key skill players over the last three seasons. With his role likely to remain limited, Drake is not a fantasy option for Week 16.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Frank Gore (foot) is expected to miss the rest of the season.

Gore is reportedly dealing with a sprained foot. The injury will snap Gore's insane streak of 126 straight regular season games, a run which goes back to 2011. It also could mark the end of the 35-year-old's (36 in May) career, although Gore has not ruled out playing another season. Gore finishes this season with 722 rushing yards, 12 catches for 124 yards, and one total touchdown.

DeVante Parker played 19-of-53 snaps (36 percent) Week 15 against the Vikings.

He was only targeted once and actually played fewer snaps than Brice Butler. As the Miami Herald's Barry Jackson surmised, Parker is almost certainly coming to the end of his time with the Dolphins. The former first-rounder is owed a non-guaranteed $9.4 million as part of his fifth-year option next season.

Pro Football Talk reports X-rays on Frank Gore's foot came back negative.

Gore was carted to the locker room with what was announced as an ankle injury in the first half against the Vikings, but Pro Football Talk reports he has a sprained foot. While he avoided any breaks, Gore will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of the damage. He was seen leaving the locker room in a walking boot on Sunday.
Dec 16 - 5:08 PM

Danny Amendola hauled in 3-of-8 targets for 30 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

There was not much passing production to go around in this one, and Amendola did not help when he dropped a pass at the one-yard line just before halftime. He missed out on another target which was thrown behind him but ultimately catchable. He was able to come up with an 18-yard catch in garbage time to laughably lead the Dolphins in receiving. Amendola can be left on the wire.
Dec 16 - 5:00 PM

DeVante Parker did not catch his only target Week 15 against the Vikings.

Parker did not appear to be a full-time player in this game, giving up snaps to Brice Butler. His only opportunity of the game was an end-zone target just before halftime which had almost no chance of being completed. He can be left on the wire.
Dec 16 - 4:59 PM

Kenny Stills hauled in 1-of-3 targets for 17 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

After two big games in a row, Stills was non-existent in the first half of this one, going catch-less on just one target. His second opportunity did not come until late in the third quarter, and Ryan Tannehill sailed the ball well over his head deep down the sideline. Stills did finally get on the board with a 17-yard catch in garbage time, but it was too little too late. With the Jaguars up next, Stills can be sent back to the wire.
Dec 16 - 4:58 PM

Kenyan Drake rushed once for six yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Even with Frank Gore leaving at the end of the first quarter, Drake was left on the sidelines in favor of Kalen Ballage for most of this game. He did get some work in the two-minute drill at the end of the first half and actually led the team with three catches for 28 yards heading into the break. That was the extent of his involvement, however, even with the Dolphins in garbage-time mode for most of the final quarter. It is possible Drake's shoulder injury has made the Dolphins hesitant to use him. No matter the reason, he is just a big-play dart throw at this point.
Dec 16 - 4:55 PM

Kalen Ballage rushed 12 times for 123 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings.

Taking over as the lead back after Frank Gore’s ankle injury, Ballage notched six carries for 30 yards in the first half, but he did a little better after the break. On the first play of the second half, Ballage exploded through a hole, worked to the sideline, and outran everyone to the end zone for a 75-yard touchdown to get the Dolphins back in the game. Unfortunately for Ballage, the offense was shut down from that point on. With the Dolphins unwilling to use a perhaps banged-up Kenyan Drake as a runner, it looks like Ballage will be a big part of the running game if Gore is forced to miss time. Even with the Jaguars up next, that makes him an interesting waiver add in deeper leagues.
Dec 16 - 4:45 PM

Ryan Tannehill completed 11-of-24 passes for 108 yards in the Dolphins' Week 15 loss to the Vikings, losing 71 yards on nine sacks.

Tannehill and Miami’s offense did next to nothing in this one. The quarterback completed just 6-of-12 passes for a measly 52 yards in the first half, and Miami was out-gained 252 yards to 108 before the break. A 75-yard touchdown run by Kalen Ballage on the first play of the third quarter got Miami back in the game, but Tannehill could not take advantage. Under almost constant pressure in the second half, Tannehill was erratic with his ball placement, and he sailed a deep attempt well over the head of Kenny Stills late in the third quarter. Following that big run, Miami managed just 10 yards of total offense. Tannehill’s game can be boiled down to the two sacks he took on fourth down in the fourth quarter. With the Jaguars up next, Tannehill will not be a viable fantasy option in the fantasy Super Bowl.
Dec 16 - 4:06 PM

Frank Gore exited Week 15 against the Vikings with an ankle injury.

Gore went down awkwardly at the end of a first-quarter run. He had to be helped off the field and into the medical tent, and he was carted to the locker room in the second quarter. He was ruled out after halftime. Kenyan Drake, Brandon Bolden, and Kalen Ballage should share backfield work with Gore out.
Dec 16 - 1:50 PM

Dolphins declared Xavien Howard (knee) inactive for Week 15 against the Vikings.

There was never much of a chance Howard would suit up after sitting out all week. Recovering from a knee scope, Howard began running this week and could be back for Week 16. Miami also declared QB David Fales, OL Hroniss Grasu, OG Isaac Asiata, OT Zach Sterup, DE Jonathan Woodard, and WR Isaiah Ford inactive for Week 15.
Dec 16 - 11:31 AM

Kenyan Drake (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Dolphins' final injury report for Week 15 against the Vikings.

Drake was upgraded to full participation at Friday's practice. His status for Sunday's game was never in doubt. Still mired in a frustrating timeshare with Frank Gore, Drake won't be more than a last-ditch flex/RB3 play in a tough matchup with Minnesota.
Dec 14 - 1:59 PM

Xavien Howard (knee) is doubtful for Week 15 against the Vikings.

Howard hasn't got in a full practice since initially undergoing arthroscopic surgery last week. Miami's defense will likely be tasked in defending Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs without their top All-World shutdown corner on Sunday. Even if the Vikings skew towards running the ball more in the wake of ex-OC John DeFilippo's release, it's undoubtedly a tremendous matchup for Minnesota's aerial attack on Sunday.
