Projecting Dolphins' Week 2 inactives
By James Walker
The Miami Dolphins (1-0) will look to remain undefeated Sunday when they travel to face the Indianapolis Colts (1-0) at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Based on this week’s practices and injuries, here are the projected players you might not see Sunday for the Dolphins:
Quarterback Pat Devlin and cornerbacks Will Davis and Jamar Taylor: All three players were ruled out for this weekend’s game. Davis has a toe injury, but practiced this week. He’s the furthest along of the three.
Running back Mike Gillislee: The Dolphins are sticking with Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas, despite their Week 1 struggles. Miami also needs a spot reserved for fullback Tyler Clutts.
Linebacker Josh Kaddu: The backup was inactive last week against the Cleveland Browns. There is a good chance that’s the case Sunday.
Offensive lineman Dallas Thomas: The rookie is still green. He has some versatility, but needs to be solid enough at one position before the coaches can trust him in a game.
Offensive lineman Danny Watkins: Miami signed the former first-round pick two weeks ago, and he’s still learning the system. He should provide depth at some point. But Week 2 might be too early.
