Report: DeVante Parker and Xavien Howard miss 2nd straight Miami Dolphins practice

Xavien Howard and DeVante Parker

According to a report, the Miami Dolphins were without two key players during Thursday’s practice.

Xavien Howard and DeVante Parker were both unable to participate.

The Dolphins have a very winnable game coming up against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, but the matchup would become a bit tougher for Miami if some key players were to miss the game.

Howard has appeared in all five games for Miami this season. So far, he has an interception and six passes defended to his credit.

As for Parker, he’s looking to get back on the field after missing Miami’s Week 5 game. The 28-year-old has 17 receptions for 242 yards and a touchdown so far this season.

Miami is looking to earn its second win of the season.
