Projecting Dolphins' Week 5 inactives
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins (3-1) have play Sunday against the defending champion Baltimore Ravens (2-2).
Here are the players who may not suit up for Miami this week.
Cornerback Dimitri Patterson: He is ruled out for the fourth straight game with a groin injury. The Dolphins are hopeful to get Patterson back before the bye week.
Running back Mike Gillislee: The Dolphins’ No. 3 running back cannot seem to get ahead on the depth chart. The increased use of Marcus Thigpen only further moves Gillislee out of the rotation.
Quarterback Pat Devlin: He’s the third quarterback and has been inactive all season.
Linebacker Josh Kaddu: Miami’s backup linebacker was activated for the first time last week against the New Orleans Saints. But look for him to be back on the inactive list.
Guard Dallas Thomas: The rookie is still green and learning the system.
Guard Danny Watkins: He joined the team late but is making progress. With Miami’s offensive line struggling, the team may add him in the rotation at some point after the bye week.
Wildcard: Miami Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Wake's status has been up in the air all week. He will be a game-time decision for the second game in a row. If Wake plays, a banged-up special teamer like Don Jones (elbow) could sit.
