Report: Dolphins list 6 players as inactive vs. Bills but will have Terron Armstead and Xavien Howard

Terron Armstead

The Miami Dolphins are going to be without a few players when they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

The team has reported that it will miss at least six players for the Sunday showdown. Those players are Cethan Carter, Raekwon Davis, Erik Ezukanma, Myles Gaskin, Hunter Long and Skylar Thompson.

Among the inactive players, losing Davis might hurt the most. He played well in the team’s first two games of the 2022 season.

Davis recorded five combined tackles in Miami’s season opener against the New England Patriots. In Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens, the 6-foot-7 defender had two combined tackles. Without him, the Dolphins might have to rely on 33-year-old John Jenkins to step up.

But it is not all bad for Miami. Xavien Howard and Terron Armstead will reportedly be active for the Sunday matchup.

Howard played in the first two matches of the season for Miami. However, he was recently listed as questionable because of a groin issue.

As for Armstead, he also played in Weeks 1 and 2. He had been considered questionable for Week 3 because of a toe injury but is now seemingly good to go.

Buffalo is dealing with the injury bug itself. It will be without both Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. Poyer will not suit up because of a foot injury, and Hyde will miss the remainder of the season due to a neck injury he sustained in the Bills’ Week 2 contest against the Tennessee Titans.

Even though the Bills will be missing two of their best defensive players, the Dolphins will still need to be at the top of their game. After all, Buffalo is fielding one of the best offenses in the league, and it’s led by star quarterback Josh Allen.

The Dolphins and Bills have identical 2-0 records. While the 2022 season is still young, the two squads are likely looking at Sunday’s game as a crucial contest, as the winner will gain an early upper hand in the division.
