Report: 3 Miami Dolphins Stars Expected to Play Sunday Despite Recent Injuries

DeVante Parker

The Miami Dolphins reportedly will be with three key players on Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Byron Jones, along with wide receiver DeVante Parker, are all expected to play in Sunday’s contest.

Howard is working his way back from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but he has gotten in good enough shape to suit up Sunday.

Howard and Jones will form one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL. Jones was signed to a massive contract by the Dolphins in free agency this past offseason.

As for Parker, he returned to practice on Tuesday after dealing with a left leg injury.

Parker had a breakout season in 2019, securing a career-high 72 receptions for 1,202 yards and nine touchdowns.

The Dolphins will look to start the 2020 season off on the right foot, as they attempt to improve on last season’s 5-11 record.
