The Dolphins didn’t want to use defensive end Cameron Wake as a full-time replacement for Mario Williams against the Patriots this weekend and it doesn’t look like they’ll need to employ anyone in that role.
Williams is back on the practice field for the Dolphins on Friday. It’s his first time on the practice field since suffering a concussion against the Seahawks in Week One.
Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports that Williams is expected to play after being cleared for on-field activities.
Wide receiver DeVante Parker is also expected to be in the lineup after sitting out last week with a hamstring injury. He participated in practice all this week. Center Mike Pouncey missed that game with a hip injury and he’s on track to miss this one as well.
The Dolphins will release an official injury report later on Friday.
