OUTDre Kirkpatrick DB CIN (9) 4 hours ago
Kirkpatrick (hamstring) has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game against the Dolphins.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
