Here is the latest injury report heading into the final game of the 2014 season on Sunday against the New York Jets. With two more days of practice set for the Dolphins, things can certainly change but this will give you an idea of where everyone stands at this point in the week. For those not participating in practice, their outlook for Sunday remains grim and likely won't play...
BY NICK ST. DENISThe Miami Dolphins will be out for a pair of moral victories the next two weeks when they take on the Minnesota Vikings and New York Jets, respectively. A two-game sweep, however, won't be enough to lift the morale of the locker room if they miss the playoffs for the 12th time in 13 years--a likely scenario given their playoff hopes are slim to none.“Finishing...
The Miami Dolphins could use more players like Jared Odrick.
A unique and engaging individual, the fifth-year defensive tackle out of Penn State has grown into one of the team's emotional leaders both on and off the field since being selected in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
Armed with a quick wit and a level head, Odrick can always be counted on to articulate the mood of...
Barring an unforeseen miracle, the Miami Dolphins will miss the playoffs for the third time in three years under head coach Joe Philbin but the mood in the locker room has been upbeat, with the players and coaches saying that they still have plenty to play for.Philbin said that the meetings have been good so far this week and the energy has been high and he hopes that continues into...
DAVIE, Fla. -- Heading into their Week 15 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings, the Miami Dolphins are still technically alive for a playoff spot, but those hopes have dimmed considerably in the wake of their recent struggles.
Barring an unlikely series of events in which Miami would not only need to win its final two games, but also require that Pittsburgh, Baltimore and San Diego...

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins have never been so bad against the run.
Not their 1966 expansion team, which won three games. Not any of the awful defenses that kept Dan Marino from winning a Super Bowl. Not even the 2007 team that went 1-15.
In the past three games the Dolphins have allowed 661 yards rushing, the worst three-game stretch in franchise history, according to STATS...

DAVIE, Fla. -- The mood at the Miami Dolphins practice facility was about what you'd imagine it to be a day after their tough 28-13 home loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
The defeat has left Miami at 7-6 for the season and dropped them to the ninth seed behind three teams including the Ravens in the AFC wild-card chase. With a road game coming up next against the New England...

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins locker room fell silent after a heartbreaking 28-13 loss Sunday to the Baltimore Ravens pushed them one game closer to the brink of playoff elimination.
The harsh reality of their situation beginning to sink in, some players meandered around while others tried to find the words to explain Sunday's unfathomable collapse to the droves of media...

DAVIE, Fla. -- The Miami Dolphins know the stakes.
They've seen the standings, they're aware of each and every playoff scenario, and the road they travel now is all too familiar.
With six teams in the AFC at 7-5, and with just four games left to play, Miami has little margin for error if it hopes to return to the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
Currently in possession of...
En un par de horas los Dolphins de Miami enfrentarán a uno de sus rivales divisionales, los Jets de Nueva York. Una rivalidad sin precedentes dentro de la NFL. No es un juego cualquiera, ya que al hacer una retrospección de la pasada temporada recordaremos que los Dolphins solo necesitaban un solo juego para clasificar y los Jets se encargaron de ganar a domicilio, dejándolos...
DAVIE, Fla. -- The New York Jets will be looking to get an early start on spoiling the Miami Dolphins playoff aspirations for the second time in as many seasons when the AFC East rivals battle at MetLife Stadium in prime time Monday night.
The 2-9 Jets are one of the worst teams in the NFL and are coming off an embarrassing 38-3 loss at the hands of the Buffalo Bills.
The Miami Dolphins could be facing some difficult decisions regarding personnel on the defensive front. With DT Jared Odrick facing free agency this offseason, and DT Randy Starks‘s contract set to expire after the 2015 season, it may be difficult to keep both players.
Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald suggests that the Dolphins will likely have to choose one or the other,...

DAVIE, FL. -- After their feel-good win over the Buffalo Bills last Thursday, the Miami Dolphins have taken advantage of the extra time to prepare for the challenges they now face on the road against the Denver Broncos.
In addition to the normal routine of scouting their opponent and fine-tuning their schemes, the Dolphins must also adjust to a big drop in temperature and an even...
Last Sunday, Buffalo Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin predicted that his team was going to “beat that ass” when they faced the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night. If “beat that ass” meant lose an important divisional game by 13 points, McKelvin was right. Dolphins defensive tackle Jared Odrick said after the game that there was nothing...Read More
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) The Miami Dolphins practice stripping the ball, defensive backs drill daily on interceptions and coaches constantly carp about the need for takeaways, just like every other team every season.
So why are the Dolphins only recently forcing a flurry of turnovers?
''I wish there was a magic formula,'' third-year defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle said. ''It has been...

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- In search of their fifth victory of the season and third in as many games, the Miami Dolphins ended up finding something much more special in their 37-0 victory over the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.
Capturing their first shutout since Dec. 10, 2006, when they defeated the New England Patriots 21-0, defensive tackle Jared Odrick says that his team finally found...

The New England Patriots have won 10 straight season openers. That is the third best mark in league history, behind the Dallas Cowboys (17, 1965-1982) and the Miami Dolphins (11, 1992-2002). They also have spanked the AFC East since 2001, with a 63-17 record and a .788 winning percentage.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Joe Philbin was not overly pleased following a recent preseason game, the coach of the Miami Dolphins somewhat befuddled with how his first-string offense moved the ball well but failed to find the end zone.
It's a problem, which is the bad news.
The good news is, it's a football problem - nothing at all like the issues that sunk the Dolphins a year ago.

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) Make no mistake, Joe Philbin is not always happy. When the Miami Dolphins had to repeat the same play four times in practice Tuesday and still failed to get it right, their head coach was steaming.
Those moments have seemed rare so far this preseason.
Whether he's cracking the occasional one-liner with reporters, showing a happily animated side in practice or even...

Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Jared Odrick's lunch special might test whether there really is no such thing as bad publicity.
Odrick took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to denounce new "fast-casual" burger franchise Burger21, claiming it served him a latex glove with his lunch. It would appear that with Odrick's salad, an employee laid it on pretty thick with the casual but especially...
