On Thursday, the Miami Dolphins held their second practice of the week ahead of their Sunday afternoon fight with the Buffalo Bills.
Three players who didn’t compete on Wednesday — offensive tackle Terron Armstead (toe) and tight ends Cethan Carter (concussion) and Hunter Long (ankle) — were out of practice on Thursday.
Cornerback Xavien Howard (groin) was however upgraded to a limited entrant. He joined wide receiver Cedrick Wilson Jr. (ribs/toe) and defensive lineman Raekwon Davis (knee) as the only players restricted. Davis was a full participant on Wednesday.
Linebacker Channing Tindall (illness) was upgraded to a full-fledged competitor on Thursday, joining tight end Tanner Conner (knee) and fullback Alec Ingold (shoulder).
Completely removed from the list was linebacker Melvin Ingram, who got his regular veteran rest day on Wednesday.
Armstead’s status is probably the most worrying as he’s been dealing with this toe injury for over a week and played through it in week 2. Hopefully he hasn’t worsened the injury so much that he won’t be able to go on Sunday.
