After missing Wednesday’s practice with both a quad injury and an Achilles injury, Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones was present and participating in a limited role on Thursday.

Xavien Howard was limited on Thursday as well after fully participating on Wednesday. A groin injury was added to the report for him, so that is likely something suffered at practice that slowed him down.

As Miami continues to get ready for their Week 5 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the health of both cornerbacks is extremely important, as they will be tasked with covering Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, or Antonio Brown.

The only player added to the injury report was center Greg Mancz who is listed with a neck injury. He practiced normally, but, with the current state of the offensive line, we should all watch this closely. This may give Austin Reiter, who was signed off the Saints practice squad earlier in the week, a chance to play sooner than expected.

Wide receiver Devante Parker and safety Brandon Jones’ participation remained unchanged from Wednesday, but Parker did have a hamstring added.

Tight end Adam Shaheen practiced fully today for the first time this week.
