Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard was pulled from last Thursday’s game with a groin injury and his status will be a key storyline for the team as they head toward Sunday’s game against the Jets.

Head coach Mike McDaniel offered an update on Howard during a Wednesday press conference. He said that Howard is day-to-day and doing everything he can to be ready to play this weekend.

If Howard can’t go, Byron Jones won’t be an option to fill in for him. Jones is eligible to come off the physically unable to perform list, but McDaniel said that Jones is not ready to begin practicing yet so any move to bring him back won’t come until at least next week.

Jones is recovering from offseason Achilles surgery.

  1. I don’t understand why Jones waited so far into the offseason to get a surgery he knew he needed. I don’t see him sticking around once that guaranteed money is paid off.

  2. You realize Byron delayed his surgery on his Achilles till after he heard he was on the trade block then hurried to new york for the operation thus his final year of his contract was guaranteed for injury and who wants to trade for a busted up cornerback…..not cool.

  3. Jones is another poor Grier decision, the Dolphins have received nothing for all that money!
