Dolphins' final injury report: Thin at CB


The Miami Dolphins (5-6) will travel this weekend to face the New York Jets (5-6) in a crucial game for both teams.

Here is the final injury report and game status for the Dolphins:

OUT: OT Jonathan Martin (absence), CB Dimitri Patterson (groin), RB Daniel Thomas (ankle), CB Jamar Taylor (hamstring)

QUESTIONABLE: S Chris Clemons (knee, hamstring)

PROBABLE: G Sam Brenner (knee), WR Rishard Matthews (back), LB Koa Misi (knee), WR Marlon Moore (hamstring), DL Jared Odrick (knee), RB Marcus Thigpen (wrist), S Jimmy Wilson (abdomen)

Analysis: Miami will be thin at cornerback with Patterson and Taylor ruled out for this game. Other corners, such as Nolan Carroll, will have to step up against the Jets. Clemons’ status will be key. Miami could use his veteran presence on the back end. The big name missing on the injury report is starting center Mike Pouncey, which is a good sign for Miami. Pouncey had a stomach illness that kept him out of the past two games. He lost 15 pounds in the process, but appears to be back to normal. Pouncey will be needed against New York's tough front seven on defense.
