NFL: JAN 08 Jets at Dolphins

The Dolphins probably won’t have one of their key offensive skill players when they take on the Bills in Sunday’s wild card matchup.

Per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, running back Raheem Mostert suffered a broken thumb during yesterday’s victory over the Jets. That puts his status in doubt for the first postseason game.

Mostert had 71 yards on 11 carries during Sunday’s game. He’s rushed for 891 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games this season. He’s also caught 31 passes for 202 yards with a pair of TDs.

Jeff Wilson had 72 yards on 16 carries and would figure to take the bulk of the reps with Mostert out.

The Dolphins have larger questions on offense, though, starting with who is going to play quarterback for the opening round of the playoffs. As of Sunday night, Tua Tagovailoa remained in the concussion protocol and Teddy Bridgewater was still dealing with his injured pinky finger.

  1. The wildcard game between the Bills and Dolphins will be a joke. The Dolphins would likely have lost if their entire team was healthy, but they are not.

  2. Bills are going to kill them. I just hope Tua gets out of the game without a concussion.

  3. Its a miracle the Dolphins made the postseason with the amount of injuries to key players this season, 3rd stingers now starting on the o-line and secondary.

    Seems like you think the Bills will kill them with Tua playing; not sure where you would get that indication.

    Anyway, I was hoping they wouldn’t make it because I would prefer Tua to rest until next season. However, if healthy, I want Tua to go because I’d like to see how they play in the playoffs.

  5. Jeez – if the Dolphins don’t have Tua AND Mostert they may be in a wee bit of trouble…

  6. Donovan Edwards broke his right hand, put a cast on it, carried the ball with his left hand and burned the Ohio State defense repeatedly. Mostert should take note.
