Looks like Xavien Howard will be gone for about a month, with a knee injury he suffered Thursday in practice. This team can’t catch a break with our injuries to our least-deep areas. We have the worst secondary and LBs in the league, made worse the past month with all the injuries. Not that we “prefer” injuries to other parts of the team, but those are easier to overcome.
On TNF, we saw yet another backup QB come in and win a game, business as usual. When will the Dolphins at least try it? I’m not saying that Gase has to stand up and scream, “Tannehill sucks and I give up on him.” But he should AT LEAST say the old cliche about “We’re just gonna give Matt Moore a try to shake things up a little.”
Mike Pouncey was back practicing, but he is very questionable for Sunday’s game. I don’t hate the guy, but I don’t see what he adds to the team each time he comes back from his many injuries. Steen was playing great, and I’d love to see him back in the fold when he’s ready.
Arian Forster also practiced, but still no word on his availability to play. Can’t blame Gase for keeping it a secret.
The Titans are not a good team but are better than Cleveland, and we all know how that one turned out. Our offense has started off hot (like scoring on our first pass of the game in Cincy) and lost games, and we started off slow and lost games. The main problem is how we’re are closing games. It’s just not happening, and we’ll get a good look at the Dolphins’ resolve come Sunday. Thank goodness Hurricane Matthew cooperated.
