Jason Jones
DL MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Jones (ankle) is active for Thursday's matchup with the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Though he was listed as questionable it was expected that Jones would be active for Thursday's tilt after practicing fully on Tuesday and Wednesday. He recorded two tackles in last week's win over the Browns.

OUTAnthony Steen
MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Steen (ankle) is inactive for Thursday's game against Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Steen had been starting in place of Mike Pouncey and had hoped to be able to play through his ankle injury. Given his pre-game status of doubtful it's unsurprising that he's listed as inactive.

Tyler Kroft
TE CIN (9)
20 hours ago

Kroft will serve as the Bengals' starting tight end Thursday versus the Dolphins, Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cincinnati will once again be without No. 1 tight end Tyler Eifert (ankle), who logged limited practices all week but will nonetheless wait to make his season debut. Kroft is thus making his third start in a row, but the first two weren't exactly productive. After hauling in three of four passes for 35 yards in Week 2 at Pittsburgh, he emerged from Sunday's loss to the Broncos without a target to his name.

Dion Sims
TE MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Sims (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

With Jordan Cameron out Thursday, Sims is on track to start at tight end for the Dolphins, while MarQueis Gray could also factor in. Sims hauled in all four of his targets for 46 yards in Week 3, and he's an option for those scrambling for Week 4 tight end help due to injuries or bye week issues.

OUTJelani Jenkins
LB MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Jenkins (groin) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Jenkins had been listed as doubtful for Thursday's game after sitting out all of the team's practices this week. Neville Hewitt figures to get the start in his place.

DeVante Parker
WR MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Parker (hamstring) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

As was expected, with Parker having practiced fully this week in advance of Thursday's contest. Since being inactive for the the Dolphins' regular season opener, Parker has recorded 11 catches on 20 targets for 157 yards and a TD over Miami's last two outings.

Jarvis Landry
WR MIA (8)
20 hours ago

Landry (shoulder) is listed as active for Thursday night's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

A shoulder issue impacted Landry's practice participation this week, but he's out there Thursday, as expected, and remains a candidate to be heavily targeted in Week 4. To date, Landry has logged double-digits looks in each of Miami's first three games, resulting in 24 catches on 34 targets for 314 yards and a TD overall.

OUTTyler Eifert
TE CIN (9)
20 hours ago

Eifert (ankle) is inactive for Thursday night's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

We'd now expect Eifert to target a return to action in Week 5, when the Bengals face the Cowboys on Oct. 9. In the meantime, Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah will continue to handle the team's tight end duties Thursday night.

QVance McDonald
TE SF (8)
20 hours ago

McDonald (hip) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDonald's immediate availability is in flux due to a hip injury suffered in Week 3. After he was held out of Wednesday's practice, he was able to return Thursday, but Barrows noted that McDonald wasn't "moving around well" in the portion open to the media. While McDonald may receive a designation of questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, his status could come down to the wire.

QJamaal Charles
RB KC (5)
20 hours ago

Charles (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

We'll revisit Charles' status Friday, once the Chiefs' final Week 4 injury report is out, but even if he does suit up Sunday night against the Steelers, it's difficult to imagine the Chiefs handing Charles a heavy workload in his first game back since suffering a torn ACL last October.
