Mitchell (calf) was placed on injured-reserve on Tuesday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell could be available to return mid-way through the season with the return rule now in place. The defensive end suffered a calf injury prior to Sunday's game, but is only considered week-to-week. With Mitchell out for the foreseeable future, Jordan Phillips, Julius Warmsley, and Ndamukong Suh will be the only healthy defensive ends on the roster.

Mitchell is considered week-to-week with a calf injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell dealt with a lingering calf injury prior to Week 1, but was cleared before the game for a return to the field. He appeared to have aggravated his existing injury during the contest and is now dealing with some lingering pain. He's considered week-to-week, but we should see his status for Saturday's matchup against the Patriots updated as game day approaches. Jordan Phillips and Julius Warmsley are the likely beneficiaries of playing time if Mitchell sees an extended absence.

Mitchell is questionable to return to Sunday's game due to a calf injury.

EDGE Analysis

Mitchell was hobbled by a calf injury during the preseason but was deemed ready to play heading into Sunday's contest. His exit from the game was likely due to tweaking the calf, so if he is unable to return, expect Jordan Phillips and Julius Warmsley to pick up additional snaps.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Mitchell will suit up for the Dolphins' regular season opener despite returning to practice just this week. However, he'll operate under a restricted snap count. For this reason, backup DTs Jordan Phillips and Julius Warmsley will likely see an uptick in playing time.
