First week injury report smashed for Miami Dolphin-Buffalo bills

The Miami Dolphins will have to be at their best to defeat the Buffalo Bills in Week 3, so it wasn’t a great sign that Pro Bowl quarterback Xavien Howard left training Wednesday with a thigh injury.

Howard played 52 of the team’s 59 defensive shots in Sunday’s win over Baltimore and didn’t get injured in the press box.

Having to play without Howard or even get him at less than 100 percent would be a problem for Dolphins High, which is already without cornerback teammate Byron Jones, who is on the Reserve/PUP roster after undergoing hock surgery.
