Miami Dolphins Have More COVID-19 Issues Before Saints Game

The COVID-19 hits just keep coming for the Miami Dolphins, though they still will be nowhere near as impact for their Monday night game as their opponents, the New Orleans Saints,

Wide receiver Albert Wilson and guard Solomon Kindley became the latest Dolphins players to be put on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Sunday.

They join on that list cornerback Justin Coleman, guard/center Greg Mancz, tight end Cethan Carter, guard/center Robert Jones and linebacker Duke Riley.

Jones, Kindley and Mancz served as the three backup offensive linemen against the New York Jets last Sunday, and the Dolphins likely will be calling up a second O-lineman from the practice squad after they already did that with Cameron Tom early in the week.

The absence of Wilson will be mitigated heavily by the return of fellow wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who is back after missing the game against the Jets because he was on the COVID-19 list.

Even without Wilson, the Dolphins active roster still includes Waddle, DeVante Parker, Isaiah Ford, Mack Hollins and Preston Williams, so there might not even be a need to elevate somebody from the practice squad at that position.
