Wide receivers Jakeem Grant and DeVante Parker were able to practice in some capacity on Wednesday.
Running back Matt Breida has been activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list after missing the team’s last two games. Salvon Ahmed was also at Wednesday’s practice in a non-contact jersey.
Finally, key defenders Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts were both back at practice as well after missing last Sunday’s loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Addendum: Kyle Van Noy and Elandon Roberts returned to practice after missing the Chiefs game. Myles Gaskin remains in the COVID-19 protocol.

Miami put up a good effort last week against the Chiefs, but they fell to 8-5 on the season with the loss.
The Dolphins will need to rebound against the Patriots this week if they want to keep themselves firmly in the hunt for a playoff spot in the AFC.
