Dolphins-Bills final injury report

December, 20, 2013
DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills released their final injury report leading into Sunday's game.

Here is the game status of both teams:


Questionable: RB Daniel Thomas (ankle)

Probable: DT Paul Soliai (ankle), CB Brent Grimes (groin), LS John Denny (ankle), S Chris Clemons (hamstring, knee), CB Nolan Carroll (knee), S Reshad Jones (groin), DE Olivier Vernon (ankle), CB Jamar Taylor (hamstring)

BILLS (5-9)

Out: QB E.J. Manuel (knee), WR Stevie Johnson (personal), S Aaron Williams (ribs)

Probable: CB Brandon Smith (ankle), RB Fred Jackson (ribs), DT Marcell Dareus (ankle), DT Kyle Williams (Achilles)

Analysis: The Dolphins are healthy going into this Week 16 game. The biggest injury scare all week has been Grimes, who is Miami's top corner. Grimes didn't finish last week's win over the New England Patriots but said in the locker room that he's good to go for the Bills. However, Miami's tailback depth could be an issue if Thomas can't play. The weather conditions are expected to impact the game where the Dolphins have to run the ball. Miami starting tailback Lamar Miller must step up if he has to shoulder the load. Buffalo will be without their top quarterback (Manuel) and one of its top wide receivers (Johnson). That should make things easier for Miami's defense.
