Maxwell (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell wasn't expected to play entering the weekend due to an ankle issue, while his absence will certainly be felt by the Dolphins' defense as he usually serves at their top corner. Bobby McCain and Jordan Lucas figure to see expanded roles behind Tony Lippett.

Maxwell (ankle) took part in team stretches before leaving practice with athletic trainers Wednesday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was inactive last week against the Bills and it doesn't seem likely he'll be ready in time for Sunday's tilt with the Patriots. The Dolphins may decide to rest the cornerback this week to ensure his health for the playoffs. However, nothing is official yet, so look for more updates to come in the next couple of days. If he is ruled out, Xavien Howard would likely draw the start Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell injured the ankle early in the game Saturday versus the Jets. His ankle is getting better but he is still questionable to play this Saturday versus Buffalo.
