Fitzpatrick was limited in Wednesday's practice due to right shoulder and forearm injuries, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick appears to have gotten nicked up during the Week 11 loss to the Bills. It's certainly positive that the veteran signal-caller wasn't held out of Wednesday's practice entirely, but the fact that both injuries are related to his throwing arm is somewhat concerning. Assuming Fitzpatrick is eventually able to practice fully by the end of the week, he should enter the contest without an injury designation. Second-year quarterback Josh Rosen waits in the wings in the event that Fitzpatrick fails to progress from the injuries as anticipated.

Fitzpatrick will make another start Sunday in Cleveland, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick had an unusual stat line in Sunday's 37-20 loss to Buffalo, piling up 45 pass attempts and 323 yards without a touchdown or interception. He's at least been consistently competent since the Dolphins moved him back into the starting role in Week 7, completing 66.1 percent of passes for 6.8 yards per attempt while helping the team pick up a pair of wins. The Cleveland defense ranks No. 5 in passing yards allowed per game (216.8), No. 8 in sacks (30) and No. 17 in yards per attempt (7.2), but the on-field product Sunday may be something less than the statistics suggest. Three of the Browns' Week 11 starters in defensive end Myles Garrett (suspension), defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi (suspension) and safety Morgan Burnett (Achilles) will all be out of the lineup, and there's a decent chance another pass rusher in Olivier Vernon (knee) will miss another game.

Fitzpatrick completed 32 of 45 passes for 323 yards during Sunday's 37-20 loss to the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick marked season highs in attempts, completions, yards and completion percentage, but the Miami defense stalled too often Sunday, with a whopping seven sacks stymieing drives. The veteran passer has taken 18 sacks over the past four weeks as Miami has struggled to keep teams honest with the running game. Given the team's struggles on the ground, don't be surprised if Fitzpatrick is asked to continue to gun next Sunday despite a matchup against a top-10 pass defense in Cleveland.

Coach Brian Flores termed Fitzpatrick the Dolphins' starting quarterback for the "foreseeable future," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick was forced to the sideline for a spell Sunday at Indianapolis to be checked for a concussion, but his ability to return and lead the Dolphins to a second victory in a row more or less solidified his standing over second-year signal caller Josh Rosen. On the season, Fitzpatrick has completed 62 percent of his passes, averaged a modest 6.6 yards per attempt and posted an 8:8 TD:INT in eight appearances.

Fitzpatrick completed 21 of 33 pass attempts for 169 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the team's Week 10 victory over the Colts. However, he did add four rushes for 23 yards and a score.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick struggled to produce through the air, averaging just 5.1 yards per attempt. However, he also converted the team's only touchdown of the game on an 11-yard scamper just before halftime. Of note, Fitzpatrick was also briefly held out of the game late in the fourth quarter while being evaluated for a concussion, but was able to return to the contest, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Though it wasn't in particularly convincing fashion, Fitzpatrick has now led the Dolphins to consecutive victories, and should remain under center as the team heads into a Week 11 matchup against the Bills.

Fitzpatrick completed 24 of 36 passes for 288 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 26-18 win over the Jets. He added two yards on five rushing attempts.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick completed perhaps the easiest touchdown pass of his career from 12 yards out to a wide open Preston Williams in the second quarter. He added two more passing scores before halftime, finding DeVante Parker from 17 yards out and Williams again from five. The veteran quarterback was also brought down in the end zone for a safety in the final minute of the first half, but his play in the second quarter up until that point was enough to earn his team its first win of 2019. Not only was Fitzpatrick turnover-free, but his 288 passing yards marked a season high. This will likely go down as the high point of Fitzpatrick's 2019 campaign.

Fitzpatrick will remain the Dolphins' starting quarterback Week 9 against the Jets, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick struggled to move the offense after the first quarter of Monday's loss to the Steelers, but he'll nonetheless hold on to the reigns for at least one more contest. Over his last two starts, Fitzpatrick has compiled a meager 3:3 TD:INT and has fumbled four times, losing one of them. The veteran is set for a favorable matchup in Week 9, putting him under consideration in leagues that start two quarterbacks or utilize a QB flex spot. Even if Fitzpatrick shows improved form in his outings to come, it wouldn't be a surprise if the winless Dolphins eventually turn back to second-year signal-caller Josh Rosen later in the season.

Fitzpatrick completed 21 of 34 passes for 190 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during Monday's 27-14 loss to the Steelers. He also had two fumbles, one of which he recovered.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick also ran the ball four times for 11 yards and was sacked four times. The veteran quarterback led the Dolphins to an early first quarter lead, connecting with Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson for scores, but Miami's offense struggled to make anything happen after that point. The winless Dolphins unit didn't manage to score during the game's final three quarters, or even march into field-goal territory. With just over one minute remaining in the contest, Fitzpatrick narrowly avoided fumbling a tipped ball, then closed the game out with an unfortunate sack while attempting to scramble on the next play. If Fitzpatrick retains the starting job Week 9, he'll benefit from a more favorable matchup against the Jets' struggling defense.

Fitzpatrick completed 23 of 35 passes for 282 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the Dolphins' 31-21 loss to the Bills on Sunday. He also rushed six times for 13 yards and another score and committed two fumbles but lost neither.

EDGE Analysis

Fitzpatrick was back in a stadium where he threw for 71 touchdowns between the 2010 and 2012 seasons, and he seemed to recapture some of that same magic on an afternoon when the winless Dolphins put a legitimate scare into the Bills. Fitzpatrick hit DeVante Parker for his one touchdown pass, which came from 12 yards out in the latter portion of the second quarter. The veteran quarterback then brought the Miami sidelines to life by capping off an 11-play, 60-yard fourth-quarter drive with a gutsy 11-yard scoring scramble that he finished by lowering his shoulder to get into the end zone. Fitzpatrick was reinstated as the starter mid-week after coach Brian Flores backtracked from an earlier statement that Josh Rosen would keep the top job, and given Fitzpatrick's performance Sunday, he's certainly poised to helm the passing attack again in a Week 8 Monday night matchup versus the Steelers.

The Dolphins named Fitzpatrick their starting quarterback for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Brian Flores apparently changed his mind at some point this week, having previously said he would stick with Josh Rosen as the starter even after the second-year pro was replaced (and outplayed) by Fitzpatrick in the Week 6 loss to Washington. The Week 7 matchup couldn't get much worse, with the Dolphins traveling to Buffalo to face a Bills defense that ranks second in the league at 5.5 yards allowed per pass attempt. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown three touchdowns and five interceptions in five games against the Bills.
