Maxwell will start in Sunday's game against the Titans, stating that he plans to "put on a show," Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was benched prior to last week after he struggled with tackling and soft coverage for the first three games of the season. Against the Titans in Week 5, he'll need to be a sure tackler against the likes of DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry. The team also indicated that Maxwell would be used in press coverage more often, where he thrives, in an attempt to help boost his performance on the year.

Maxwell didn't start Thursday versus the Bengals, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell hasn't played well so far this season as he has struggled in both pass coverage and tackling. Tony Lippett will be the starting corner and how well he plays will determine whether or not Maxwell will get his starting job back.

Maxwell (groin) returned to practice Monday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was dealing with a slight groin injury and there was really no reason to push it on a wet surface versus the Giants. The Dolphins biggest weakness on defense may very be the cornerback position and they will do all they can to make sure that Maxwell is ready to play Week 1 of the regular season.

Maxwell (groin) said he expects to practice on Monday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was a last second scratch from the Dolphins first preseason game Friday and has been held out of practice ever since. It's unclear how Maxwell injured his groin, but Miami is confident that the injury will not pose any long-term threats to their newly acquired cornerback.

Maxwell sat out of practice Sunday with a groin injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell was unexpectedly scratched from Friday's preseason opener and continues to deal with some lingering soreness in his groin. It's reportedly nothing severe and it shouldn't force him to sit out an extended period of time, so he's likely not at risk of missing any regular season action. The Dolphins will play the Cowboys on Friday, but Maxwell may need to see some practice reps during the week if he wants to return to field for that matchup.

Maxwell was a late scratch from the game Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dolphins gave no reason for scratching Maxwell but with a severe thunderstorm hitting the area just as the game was about to start, the team may have just been playing it cautious. They are lacking depth in the secondary at this point in time and may not have wanted to risk starting their best corner on a wet field and in a meaningless game.

The Dolphins are slated to acquire Maxwell, along with Kiko Alonso and the 13th overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft from the Eagles in exchange for the eighth overall pick in the draft, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

For a time Wednesday morning, there was talk that the deal may be off due to reported concerns about Maxwell's shoulder, but evidently the Dolphins' medical staff cleared the cornerback, and he's now slated to join the 2016 Miami secondary. In his only season with the Eagles after signing a six-year, $63 million deal with the team, the 28-year-old recorded 64 tackles and two interceptions in 14 games.

Maxwell and teammate Kiko Alonso are slated to join the Dolphins via trade, pending physicals, NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell is fresh off signing a six-year, $63 million contract with the Eagles last March, but after underperforming in 2015, he'll now be sent to the Dolphins. While it's likely Maxwell will have to restructure his lucrative deal, him joining the Dolphins also figures to result in Miami releasing fellow cornerback Brent Grimes. That situation would allow Maxwell to occupy the Dolphins' No. 1 cornerback position, as he aims to prove he's capable of striving in such a role after falling flat of expectations in Philadelphia.

Maxwell is the subject of currently ongoing trade talks between the Eagles and Dolphins, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maxwell endured some high-profile hiccups after signing an eye-opening six-year, $63 million deal with the Eagles last offseason. As Philadelphia's new coaching regime looks to start fresh, cutting ties with someone like Maxwell is understandable. Despite his recent struggles in coverage, Maxwell is coming off a career-best 64 tackles, and could be motivated for a bounce back season as a needed addition to Miami's secondary.
