The biggest concerns for Miami are wide receiver DeVante Parker, defensive end Andre Branch and vital backup defensive lineman William Hayes. Parker missed the last three games, but has practiced all week and seems ready to return. He was on the field for his normal workload today, and there’s little doubt he’ll start against the Raiders.
Here are some other notes from this afternoon’s practice:
–Branch is back from a groin injury and looks like he’ll start this week after missing the Ravens game.
–Hayes was out the last two days with a leg issue. He was on the field today, but Friday practices are typically similar to a walk-through, meaning even injured players are usually able to participate.
–QB Matt Moore is good to go as the backup behind Jay Cutler.
—The Dolphins should have their full starting defense in place other than Michael Thomas starting for Nate Allen, who is on Injured Reserve.
—Left guard Ted Larsen continued working in his first week back from a torn biceps. He looks like he’ll be available if Miami wants to play him, but most likely Jesse Davis will start in that spot.
