We started out dead last or second to only the New York Jets to win the division by nearly every odds maker out there at the beginning of the 2020 season. Some oddsmakers still have us behind the Buffalo Bills and the New England Patriots while others now only have us second behind the Buffalo Bills. I think most any Dolphins fan who watched the first of the two Miami/Buffalo games this season could tell that we were clearly in that game and could have won if not for some serious miscues.
The Buffalo Bills have had their first player test positive for COVID-19 as tight end Dawson Knox tested positive for the novel coronavirus in results that were released Saturday. Knox, who was already ruled out of Sunday’s game against the New York Jets due to an injury, was also determined to be in close contact with tight ends Lee Smith, Tommy Sweeney and Nate Becker. Those three joined Knox on the COVID-19/Reserve list, meaning they will not play Sunday.
Crowder was downgraded to doubtful on Saturday due to a groin injury he suffered at practice on Wednesday. The Jets did officially activate rookie Denzel Mims from injured reserve on Saturday, meaning he will likely make his NFL debut on Sunday after a pair of hamstring injuries delayed the start of his career. But Crowder’s doubtful designation means Mims likely won’t line up next to him and Breshad Perriman.
