Abdul-Quddus (shoulder) will be waived by the Dolphins due to a failed physical, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Abdul-Quddus suffered nerve damage in his neck and shoulder prior to being placed on injured reserve in December. At this point it is unclear if he'll ever play again. Neck injuries are not taken lightly and he'll have to make a full recovery in order for teams to look at signing the safety. Miami may need to prioritize the safety position in free agency and the draft now that they'll be without Abdul-Quddus, who was second on the team with 78 tackles in 2016.

According to head coach Adam Gase, Abdul-Quddus' shoulder injury is more serious than originally thought, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Abdul-Quddus was placed on injured reserve back in December, and since then has stated that he suffered a stretched nerve in his neck. Neck injuries are not taken lightly in the NFL, as Gase went on to state that the seventh-year safety has been in the rehab process and could continue to be for the next couple of months. Abdul-Quddus was second on the Dolphins with 77 tackles in 2016, so if he is forced to miss extended time, Miami may need to look at free agency or the upcoming draft to assess their needs in the back end of the secondary.

Abdul-Quddus (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Abdul-Quddus suffered the shoulder injury in the Week 16 win over the Bills and was spotted in a sling in the locker room afterward, so the Dolphins quickly determined he wouldn't be available for the regular-season finale or the playoffs. After Reshad Jones (shoulder) previously landed on IR as well, the Dolphins will now be without both of their starting safeties going forward. Abdul Quddus, who finishes the season with 77 tackles, two interceptions and one sack in 15 games, will be replaced on the 53-man roster by safety A.J. Hendy, who was signed from the practice squad in a corresponding move.

Abdul-Quddus (neck/shoulder) is unlikely to play Sunday versus New England, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dolphins will play it safe with Abdul-Quddus as the game means very little to them. The Dolphins are a beat up team on defense and may choose to rest several regulars in this game.

Abdul-Quddus could start splitting snaps at free safety, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Adam Gase is thinking about making several changes after the teams 1-3 start. One of those changes would have Abdul-Quddus and Michael Thomas share the load opposite Reshad Jones. If Abdul-Quddus was in your starting lineup, you may want to think about a replacement.

Abdul-Quddus says he is open to moving to free safety next season, Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Abdul-Quddus took over at strong safety midway through the season last season with the Lions and turned in the best season of his five-year career. After signing with the Dolphins earlier in the week, the 26-year-old made it known that he was open to switching to free safety. Reshad Jones is the current starter at strong safety in Miami and is also coming off the best season of his career. "I know he had a great year last year so I'm comfortable with something different. I'm just open to playing whatever", Abdul-Quddus said in an interview on Friday.

Abdul-Quddus signed a three-year $12.75 million contract with Miami on Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is a curious signing by Miami as Abdul-Quddus has only started sixteen games in his NFL career. He is expected to be more of a run defender for Miami rather than a true centerfielder.

Abdul-Quddus notched eight solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Packers.

EDGE Analysis

Abdul-Quddus has been filling in at the safety position after the injury to James Ihedigbo, and he was all over the field on Sunday. Abdul-Quddus led the team in tackles which helped the Lions pull of the upset in Green Bay. He can provide solid IDP value as long as Ihedigbo is still sidelined.
