Xavien Howard not at Dolphins practice Wednesday

Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard was named the AFC’s defensive player of the week on Wednesday, but he wasn’t at practice with the team later in the day.

Reporters present at the open portion of practice reported Howard was not on the field. No reason has been given at this point, but the team will release an injury report later in the day and head coach Adam Gase is set to speak to reporters.

Howard was listed on last week’s injury report with an ankle issue and was a full participant all week. He did come out of last Sunday’s win over the Bills for one play after being shaken up and there was no glaring sign that he was struggling through anything after he returned.

Wide receiver Danny Amendola and center Travis Swanson were both on the field Wednesday. Neither player took part in the game against Buffalo.

  1. This team has suffered more injuries to starting players the last 2 seasons to account for the entire league. Either the strength and conditioning coaches are pisspoor or these have all been freak injuries. How can you ever expect to compete when you have 70 percent of your starting team out with injuries!?!?

    The game hasn’t even been played. Why not wait until Sunday around 4 pm and we’ll all know what the outcome is.

    I’m not a fan of either team but as good as the Patriots are their record in Miami is terrible.
    I did a little G search…Since 1966 (Miami’s 1st year), NE hasn’t done well in South Florida for a long, long time.

    It’s insane, and I’m sick of it. I can’t help but to believe part of it is on strength and conditioning. It’s just too many! This coaching staff is inept.

    Dan Campbell for Head Coach!
