Dolphins secondary looks healthy for Sunday

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.

    grimes should make the pro bowl and all pro team…..but he will get overlooked because all he does is show up and play. everyone knows the nfl is a popularity contest and the ones with the biggest mouths will attract the most attention.

    I’ve been a Dolphins Fan since my state got the team. I am glad that this season comes down to two meaningful games instead of Ho-Hum. I think we are headed in the right direction!
    And no matter what happens this weekend SWEEP THE GREEN TEAM FROM NEW JERK.

    Chances looking good for Miami. Sherman has to really do homework to come up with game plan and keep RT17 off of the ground. Go Phins!

    Yeah grimes makes Davis and smith look like draft busts. He’s legit.

    Nolan Carroll a guy who has been ripped by fans in prior years, myself included, has had a great year. Much improved. I feel like he is not getting the credit he deserves.
