Pregame Notes | Dolphins at Vikings

  • The Dolphins will have the same lineup going against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday as the one that took the field against the New England Patriots a week ago.
  • That means cornerback **Xavien Howard** again will be inactive because of the knee injury he sustained in the victory against the Buffalo Bills on Dec. 2.
  • **Minkah Fitzpatrick** is the new listed starter at outside cornerback instead of Howard, even though he has started the last several games at that spot. **Bobby McCain** started at outside cornerback opposite Fitzpatrick against the Patriots.
  • Howard was listed as doubtful on the Dolphins' final injury report of the week.
  • Safety **T.J. McDonald** will be in the lineup after being listed as questionable on the final injury report.
  • McDonald will take his regular place in the starting lineup alongside fellow safety **Reshad Jones**.
  • Cornerback **Jalen Davis** again will be active after making his NFL debut last week against the New England Patriots.
  • Davis, a rookie free agent from Utah State, had been on the practice squad all season before being promoted to the active roster the day before the New England.
