Report: Xavien Howard and DeVante Parker to miss Miami Dolphins game vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Xavien Howard Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are going to be without two key players this weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Xavien Howard and DeVante Parker will both be unavailable.

Both players’ statuses became a concern as they missed practices throughout the week, and the Dolphins are indeed going to be without them.

This will be the first game that Howard misses this season. Over the five games he has appeared in, he already has six passes defended, an interception, forced fumble and fumble recovery to his credit.

As for Parker, he’s set to miss his second straight game. Miami surely wants the 28-year-old back as soon as possible. In four games this season, he has 17 catches for 242 yards and a touchdown.

The Dolphins are going to have to find a way to earn a win on Sunday without these two.
