Miami Dolphins Pro Bowl Cornerback Added To Injury Report

The Miami Dolphins season is hanging by a thread at this point, with crucial games coming up, potentially without starting Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, so in order to break their playoff drought, they'll rely on the defence to step up in a big way. 

The last thing they need is to lose a key, Pro Bowl piece, but on Thursday, cornerback Xavien Howard was added to the injury report with a knee injury, and while he was still able to practice in a limited capacity, this is not an ideal sign ahead of a must-win showdown with the New England Patriots in Week 17.

Right now, it doesn't look like an injury that will force Howard to miss an extended period of time, which is a massive bit of good news for Miami, but if he's not at 100% over the coming two weeks, it's going to seriously hinder this defence and their ability to shut down their opponents offence.
