DAVIE–The Dolphins are in their second day of practice for Sunday’s game against the Bills, and coach Adam Gase is working through possible lineup changes as he considers injuries and young players who deserve a chance to play in the finale.

Here are some notes from today’s practice:

–Injured quarterback Ryan Tannehill was running close to full speed on the field beforehand.

–Left tackle Laremy Tunsil remains out with an ankle injury. The Dolphins could try rookie Eric Smith or recently signed tackle Zach Sterup (6-foot-9, 318 pounds) in that spot Sunday.

–Safety and core special teams player Michael Thomas did not practice because of a knee injury. Thomas remains intent on playing as much as possible down the stretch.

–Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh returned from rest days. They are both expected to play Sunday.

–Running back Damien Williams, who wants to play in the finale after missing the last four games, is practicing.
