MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins were missing several key names due to injury at Wednesday’s practice. But they are also on the verge of returning one of their most dangerous offensive weapons.
We got through it all in our Sept. 27 Dolphins practice report and injury update.

Five Dolphins players were not spotted at the portion of practice open to reporters:
Wide receivers Erik Ezukanma (neck) and River Cracraft (shoulder), tackle Terron Armstead (misc., but potentially rest), edge defender Jaelan Phillips (oblique), and center Connor Williams (groin).
However, two key players on offense who missed Week 3 did practice Wednesday: wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (concussion) and running back Salvon Ahmed (groin).

Prior to practice, Mike McDaniel provided updates on the following players:
Phillips and Williams: “It is day to day. They won’t practice today. And we’ll, we’ll press forward, and as we get information back, we’ll apply that information moving forward, but they will not practice today.”
Waddle: “He will practice today. He’ll have a full practice, which will upon the results of that, will officially or unofficially clear the protocol.’
Ahmed: “He’s progressing. We’ll give him, you know, some stuff to do today and make sure that we don’t overload him and then kind of assess how that goes from there. But he was playing at a high level before got hurt, so it will see him to get going. I know he’s hungry.”
Cracraft: “We are taking a little time to kind of assess [whether he will go on IR]. That’s definitely not a certainty, but it’s definitely out of the question either. We’re just assessing and seeing how his body responds day in and day out. But I can promise you this whatever it takes to be back as fast as possible. I promise you that.”
