OUTDre Kirkpatrick
DB CIN (9)
4 hours ago

Kirkpatrick (hamstring) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.

EDGE Analysis

Kirkpatrick didn't practice at all this past week, making his listing of inactive unsurprising. Look for Chris Lewis-Harris to see extra snaps in Kirkpatrick's absence.

Damien Williams
RB MIA (8)
4 hours ago

Williams is in line to start at running back for the Dolphins in place of Arian Foster on Thursday against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

After logging one carry for 15 yards and catching three passes for 10 yards in Week 3, Williams appears to be in line for added opportunities Thursday, though with Kenyan Drake, Jay Ajayi and Isaiah Pead also on hand, his Week 4 workload is hard to predict, with some form of committee arrangement likely on tap.

OUTBranden Albert
MIA (8)
4 hours ago

Albert (ankle) is inactive for Miami's Week 4 matchup with Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

Albert didn't practice all week but was still considered a game-time decision on Thursday. With Albert out, the Dolphins will slide Laremy Tunsil over to left tackle and start Billy Turner at left guard.

Kiko Alonso
LB MIA (8)
5 hours ago

Alonso (hamstring) is active for the Dolphins' Week 4 game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Alonso was able to practice fully on Wednesday, resulting in optimism he'd play Thursday. He's been a tackling machine through the first three weeks, averaging 10 tackles per game. He'll look to continue that run of performances against Cincinnati.

Reshad Jones
DB MIA (8)
5 hours ago

Jones (knee) is active for Thursday's Week 4 tilt against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Jones was limited in practice all week, making it relatively unsurprising that he's been listed as active for Thursday. If he's limited at all look for Walt Aikens to see some extra reps.

Jason Jones
DL MIA (8)
5 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)
5 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)
5 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)
5 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)
5 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.
