DAVIE–Dolphins players got a short break this week, staying off the practice field for three days, and are back to work this afternoon in preparation for Monday’s game against New England.

As is the case with most teams this time of year, they have several injury concerns. Here are a few updates on the team from today’s practice:

—Starting cornerback Cordrea Tankersley, who hurt his ankle against Denver, isn’t practicing.

—Defensive tackle Davon Godchaux injured his knee late last week and missed the Broncos game, but he’s back today.

–At quarterback, Matt Moore will be inactive for the second straight week because of a foot injury. That means David Fales will be the backup to Jay Cutler.

–Safety Michael Thomas (knee) did not practice.

–Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh aren’t practicing, but they have no known injuries. It’s likely a rest day for them.

–Running back Damien Williams, who is unlikely to play because of a shoulder injury, was on the field for some light running this afternoon.

–Right guard Jermon Bushrod, also expected to miss the game, did some light agility work on the side.
