The Miami Dolphins received positive injury updates on star receiver Tyreek Hill and running back Raheem Mostert ahead of the team’s game against the Washington Commanders in Week 13.

Hill (ankle) and Mostert (ankle/knee) were both listed as players who did not participate in Wednesday’s practice. However, the two offensive stars returned to the field for Thursday’s session, a good sign that they’ll be able to play in Week 13.

Unfortunately, the Dolphins did not get star safety Jevon Holland back at practice on Thursday. Holland was listed on Wednesday’s injury report with knee injuries.

Miami is looking to keep pace for a top spot in the AFC standings this week against a Washington team that is struggling as of late, getting blown out by the Dallas Cowboys in Week 12 on Thanksgiving.

Having Hill in the lineup would be a huge help for the Dolphins, as he’s arguably been the best receiver in the NFL this season.

The seven-time Pro Bowler has already made 88 receptions for 1,324 yards and 10 touchdowns. Hill leads the NFL in receiving yards and receiving scores and has also picked up at least 102 receiving yards in seven of his 11 games.

As for Mostert, the team has leaned on him heavily in the backfield with both Jeff Wilson Jr. and De’Von Achane missing time this season due to injuries. Achane, who broke out in a big way to start the season, missed the team’s Week 12 game against the New York Jets with a knee issue that already cost him four games earlier in the campaign.

Mostert has stepped up when called upon for Miami, carrying the ball 151 times for 785 yards (5.2 yards per carry) and 13 rushing touchdowns, which leads the NFL.

Both Hill and Mostert have been crucial to the team’s success on offense this season, and they have a favorable matchup against a Washington team that has allowed the most points (350) in the NFL.

Miami would love to see both Mostert and Hill practice again on Friday before the team suits up for Sunday’s matchup against Washington.

The Commanders and Dolphins are scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m. EST.
