DAVIE — Miami Dolphins starting cornerback Byron Maxwell did not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury that kept him out of last week’s game at Buffalo.

But Maxwell sounded a bit more optimistic.

“It’s feeling good,” Maxwell said. “We’ll see.”

Asked if it might be a good idea to rest against New England and just focus on a playoff game at Pittsburgh or Houston, Maxwell said: “I want to play. We play to win. I always want to play ball.”

Maxwell conceded his ankle is not 100 percent and coach Adam Gase made no guarantees in his news conference.

Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett would be Miami’s starters if Maxwell can’t go.
