Here’s the latest injury news from Dolphins camp:
Expect running back Kenyan Drake and wide receiver DeVante Parker to play against the Bills Sunday, even though both are still dealing with shoulder injuries.
However, there’s not nearly as much certainty with receiver Danny Amendola and center Travis Swanson.
Both missed practice Friday. Amendola has been dealing with a knee issue; Swanson, who did some work Thursday, has an ankle injury. The Dolphins listed both as doubtful to play.
Gase said that Amendola will be a game-time decision. He is able to run straight, but is still struggling with lateral movement.
If Amendola cannot play, expect to see more from Brice Butler, a mid-November pickup who has impressed Dolphins coaches in his short time with Miami. Butler was available because the Cowboys needed to roster spot for Amari Cooper, so they cut him.
He played in the Dolphins’ loss to the Colts, but did not have a catch.
Parker and Drake wore gold non-contact jerseys during the portion of practice open to reporters Friday. Parker was listed as questionable; Drake has no designation, so the Dolphins have no doubt he will play. Tight end A.J. Derby (foot/knee) is also questionable for Sunday.
