The Dolphins added two cornerbacks off waiver claims this week, moves that seemed to be directly related to the fact that they finished their win over the Patriots with the football equivalent of duct tape holding things together.
That duct tape worked out very well — safety Michael Thomas was named the AFC defensive player of the week — but the Dolphins would still prefer to have their frontline players available for Sunday’s game with the Bills. After all, a playoff spot is theirs if they can just win their next two games.
Friday’s injury report brought good news. The only player who is listed as anything other than probable is running back Daniel Thomas, who is questionable after aggravating an ankle injury last weekend.
Cornerbacks Nolan Carroll and Brent Grimes both appear to be good to go, as do safeties Chris Clemons and Reshad Jones, and that’s a positive for the Dolphins. They won’t have to worry about Stevie Johnson as the Bills ruled out the wideout after he spent the week in California following the death of his mother, leaving Thad Lewis to throw to T.J. Graham, Marquise Goodwin and Robert Woods.
