Cutler completed 22 of 37 passes for 213 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Monday night's 45-21 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

Cutler's performance marked the fifth time he's averaged under 6.0 yards per attempt in eight appearances this season. The quarterback found Julius Thomas for a two-yard touchdown during the second quarter, but an interception on Miami's next drive started what would be a rout Monday. Although another touchdown toss during garbage time helped his stock, Cutler will prepare for Sunday's make-up game against Buccaneers with the sour taste of defeat in his mouth.

Cutler completed 34 of 42 passes for 311 yards and three touchdowns during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Cutler came out blazing, completing 16 of 17 passes before halftime with his only incompletion coming on a tipped pass. He was slightly less efficient as the night went on, but Cutler nonetheless finished the day with a sterling 81-percent completion percentage -- his highest mark since Week 2 of his 2015 campaign with the Bears. When the final whistle blew, Cutler had put together his finest performance as a member of the Dolphins, setting season-highs in completions, passing yardage and passing touchdowns, all without throwing a single interception. While it's unfortunate he wasn't able to pull out the win, Cutler will look to carry his momentum into a road matchup against the Panthers in Week 10.

Cutler (ribs) is listed as active for Sunday night's game against the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

Aiding Cutler's cause in his return from a one-game absence is that the Dolphins will welcome DeVante Parker back to the mix, giving the QB another solid wideout weapon to go along with Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. Following the trade of Jay Ajayi to the Eagles, Miami's running attack will have a new look in Week 9, with Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams set to share backfield work Sunday. In that context, Cutler will face an Oakland squad that has lost five of its last six games and has allowed an average of 236.5 passing yards per contest overall.

Though the Dolphins list Cutler (ribs) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Raiders, coach coach Adam Gase previously noted that the veteran signal-caller is starting for the Dolphins this weekend, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Supporting that notion is that Cutler practiced fully all week. The Dolphins are also in line to have DeVante Parker back in action, which helps Cutler's cause. Meanwhile, the team's running attack will have a new look in Week 9, following Jay Ajayi's trade to the Eagles, with Kenyan Drake and Damien Williams set to share work Sunday night. Cutler's obviously no sure thing in his return to action, but he might be worth a look for those scrambling for a QB in a bye-heavy week.

Cutler (ribs) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was expected after head coach Adam Gase said Friday that Cutler would return to start Week 9 against the Raiders. Per Salguero, the veteran quarterback clarified that he won't wear a protective vest or any other form of special padding in Sunday night's contest. With DeVante Parker (ankle) potentially returning and Jay Ajayi no longer on the team, Miami could deploy an aggressive aerial attack against a vulnerable Oakland defense. Of course, the offensive line is still a major weakness, and Cutler hasn't exactly torn it up this season.

Head coach Adam Gase said Friday that Cutler (ribs) will start Week 9 against the Raiders, Craig Davis of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gase opted to hold Cutler out of Thursday's 40-0 thrashing in Baltimore only a few days removed from the broken ribs suffered last weekend. Lending credence to Cutler's ability to return, Gase also mentioned the veteran signal caller "could have played" Thursday. Instead, the Dolphins turned over the controls to Matt Moore, who completed 25 of 44 passes for 176 yards and two interceptions while getting sacked on three occasions. Cutler likely won't perform any worse versus the Raiders on Sunday, Nov. 5, assuming rehab gets him to the requisite level of health.

Cutler (ribs) has been named the starting quarterback for the Dolphins' Week 9 matchup against the Raiders, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cutler took a seat on a short week due to multiple cracked ribs, but Matt Moore's dreadful performance Thursday will thrust Cutler back into the lead role. As evidence, Moore completed 25 of 44 passes for 176 yards and two interceptions, both of which were returned for touchdowns. Assuming Cutler gets through upcoming game prep without issue, he'll take on Oakland's 23rd-ranked pass defense.

Cutler (ribs), who has already been ruled out Thursday night against the Ravens, is expected to be available Week 9 against the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cutler was diagnosed with multiple cracked ribs due to a third-quarter hit Sunday against the Jets, and will give way to Matt Moore in Week 8 as a result. Barring an incredible road performance by Moore, it sounds as if Cutler will be under center when the the team returns home. Nonetheless, prospective fantasy owners will want to monitor Cutler's practice participation throughout the week.

Cutler (ribs) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Ravens, the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cutler's status for the Dolphins' Nov. 5 tilt against the Raiders is unclear, but what is certain is that Matt Moore will start at QB for the team against Baltimore. If Moore performs well in Cutler's place Thursday night, it's plausible that he could retain the starting assignment in Week 9, even if Cutler progresses to the point that he's physically able to to suit up for game action at that juncture.

Cutler (ribs) was in attendance for the Dolphins' practice Tuesday, but wasn't wearing a jersey and isn't expected to work out, James Walker of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Adam Gase essentially ruled Cutler out for Thursday's game against the Ravens after the quarterback sustained cracked ribs in the Dolphins' comeback win over the Jets on Sunday, so Cutler's lack of activity Tuesday isn't a surprise. Look for Cutler to remain off the practice field Wednesday as the Dolphins prepare Matt Moore for his first start of the season.
