For the second consecutive game, the Dolphins’ final injury report of the week has one player listed as doubtful and four listed as questionable.
The players involved also are the same with one exception.
As was the case last week before the Jacksonville game, safety T.J. McDonald (ankle) was listed as doubtful for the season finale against Buffalo. He sat out practice all week, just as he did before the game against the Jaguars.
Cornerback Xavien Howard, who hasn’t played since the first Buffalo game Dec. 2, again was listed as questionable with his knee injury. Howard practiced on a limited basis all week.
Alonso sat out the game against Jacksonville last Sunday, but Head Coach Adam Gase said he has looked much better this week.
Branch was not on the injury report before the Jacksonville game; defensive tackle Kendrick Norton was not on the injury report this week after being listed as questionable last week.
For the Bills, WR Deonte Thompson (toe) and LB Julian Stanford (ankle) were ruled out. Running back Chris Ivory (shoulder) and cornerback Ryan Lewis (concussion) were listed as questionable. Ivory was a full participant in practice all week; Lewis was limited.
