Jevon Holland and Raheem Mostert provide noncommittal updates on their injuries

3 Min Read

Two Miami Dolphins players in safety Jevon Holland and running back Raheem Mostert provided noncommittal updates on their injuries ahead of the team’s wild card matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

While Holland played in the team’s regular-season finale against the Buffalo Bills on Jan. 7, he appeared in just 12 of the Dolphins’ 17 games during the 2023 regular season. He totaled 74 combined tackles, 52 solo tackles, 22 assists on tackles and three tackles for loss in his third season in the NFL and with the Dolphins franchise.

Meanwhile, Mostert hasn’t taken the field for the Dolphins since the team’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Christmas Eve. Despite the fact that he missed Miami’s final two games of the regular season, he still ended up with a league-best 18 rushing touchdowns to go along with 1,012 rushing yards and 59 first downs rushing. Plus, he averaged an impressive 67.5 rushing yards per game in his second season with the Dolphins.

The Dolphins ended the 2023 regular season with an identical record to the Bills at 11-6, but Buffalo ended up clinching the AFC East division thanks to the fact that the Bills beat the Dolphins in both matchups between the two teams during the season.

Miami lost its last two games of the season, as before falling to the Bills by a final score of 21-14, the Dolphins lost to the Baltimore Ravens — who finished with the top record in the AFC at 13-4 — on the road.

The Dolphins will take on the Chiefs on the road on Saturday. Unlike Miami, the Chiefs ended the regular season on a winning streak, as Kansas City defeated the Cincinnati Bengals on New Year’s Eve and then proceeded to earn a one-point victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in the team’s final game of the regular season.

Fans of the Dolphins should be hoping that both Mostert and Holland will be good to go against the Chiefs, as the former is one of Miami’s better offensive players, while the latter is an impactful player on the defensive side of the ball for the Dolphins.
