DAVIE–After a couple weeks with minimal drama injury-wise, the Dolphins have a significant group of players in question for Sunday’s game against New England.

Running back Jay Ajayi injured his shoulder late in the win over Buffalo, but worked in individual position drills during the portion of today’s practice open to the media. Miami held a non-contact practice today, so it’s hard to gauge Ajayi’s readiness based solely off that.

The Dolphins were missing several defenders. Cornerback Byron Maxwell (ankle) worked on the side and there’s a good chance he’ll miss his second straight game Sunday. Linebackers Spencer Paysinger (ankle) and Jelani Jenkins (knee), both potential starters, were not in attendance at today’s practice.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill continues to rehab his sprained left knee inside the facility and has not been seen at any practice since the injury. Miami coach Adam Gase did not rule him out when asked Monday.

Safety Isa Abdul-Quddus (neck) was at practice, but is out for the year after Miami placed him on Injured Reserve this morning.
