Miami Dolphins Practice Report and Injury Update: Latest on Tyreek Hill, Jevon Holland, and Terron Armstead

Tyreek Hill and Jevon Holland were among the big Miami Dolphins names not present at practice Wednesday.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins began preparations for the Washington Commanders Wednesday without at least four starters — including Tyreek Hill, the NFL’s leading receiver.

And based on Mike McDaniel’s comments prior to Wednesday’s practice, there’s a chance the Dolphins will be without several of their brightest stars in Week 13.

Miami Dolphins Practice Report

Dolphins players not spotted during the portion of practice open to reporters Wednesday:

  • Hill (ankle)
  • S Jevon Holland (knees)
  • OT Kendall Lamm (back)
  • TE Durham Smythe (ankle)
  • OT Terron Armstead (quad)

What’s more, running back Raheem Mostert — who leads the NFL in rushing touchdowns (13) and is second in rushing yards (785) behind only Christian McCaffrey — did nothing but stretch during the media viewing period. (The Dolphins later clarified that he did not practice.)

Mostert has been dealing with ankle and knee injuries but hasn’t missed a game in 2023.

If he cannot go against Washington, the Dolphins do seem to have a growing number of options at running back. De’Von Achane was back at practice after missing the Dolphins’ Black Friday win over the Jets with a knee injury.

Plus, on Wednesday, the Dolphins opened the 21-day practice window for Chris Brooks, who has been on injured reserve since Week 7. By returning Brooks to practice, the Dolphins are left with just one IR-return designation this season.

Hill, meanwhile, was able to finish the Jets game despite rolling his ankle on his first catch of the game. More will be known about his availability on Thursday.

Holland left late in the Jets game with a knee injury that was not believed to be serious.

Armstead, meanwhile, must have made an appearance later in practice, as the Dolphins listed him as a limited participant. He vowed on social media Monday that he will play this weekend, although McDaniel has been far more vague about his left tackle’s Week 13 availability.

“There’s several people that won’t be practicing,” McDaniel said prior to practice. “We have good depth on the team. We have some bumps and bruises for sure, but you know, we’re approaching December, which is the 12th month of the year, and we started in the seventh, and it accumulates.

“So, we’re fast on our feet, and we’re adjusting the fly, but there’ll be plenty of guys getting reps that if guys can’t get themselves to the place they need to be to perform at the level they need to perform at, they’ll be able to step in.

“One of the cool things about this team is, you know, with all the confidence that the locker room has within each other, they don’t really blink. We’ll be seizing the day regardless.”
