    The Dolphins still don’t have left tackle Terron Armstead back at practice, but coach Mike McDaniel said Monday that Armstead is “progressing well.” Armstead underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee this offseason.

    The Dolphins did have safety Brandon Jones, running back De’Von Achane and receiver Jaylen Waddle return to practice Monday.

    Achane was considered “week to week” after injuring his shoulder in the second preseason game on Aug. 19.

    Waddle injured his right midsection in an Aug. 9 joint practice with the Falcons.

    Waddle, the No. 6 overall pick in 2021, led the league with 18.1 yards per reception in 2022, catching 75 passes for 1,356 yards with eight touchdowns.

    Jones is returning from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Week 7 of last season.

    Of those, I think that Waddle is by far the mostly likely to play this week. He should be good. Achane sounds like he's OK as well.

    Armstead, who knows. We'll likely have a better idea by the end of the week, but it will always be a maybe with him.

    No real need to play Achane this week.

    If Wilson were healthy, I'd completely agree with you. With him starting the season on the shelf though, we're limited to just Mostert, Ahmed and the UDFA rookie though. Mostert is probably the highest injury risk of any starting RB in the league, so depth is always an issue.

    Brooks can help. That is 3 backs without Achane. Not counting the FB.

    Two guys who have never played in an NFL game before is a big ask for Week 1.

    I think we land on Johnathan Taylor in the weeks ahead, so I don't mind the "wait and see" mode for now. Three backs are three backs. I'm much more concerned about the offensive line and protecting our QB.

    I don't see the point. He sits out 4 weeks, then how many weeks for him to get into game shape? I think that ship sailed if it ever actually left the port.

    Hopefully we're getting the injuries out of the way early and will be clean down the stretch otherwise this could quickly turn into a cursed season.

    Man, if Armstead doesn’t get through the game healthy and playing solid, Tua…poor guy. Damn.
