Gase did refer to Howard as “week to week” but said that his return will obviously depend on how his rehab goes. Jackson adds that the Dolphins are optimistic Howard will return within six weeks.
Howard, 22, was taken with the No. 38 overall pick by the Dolphins. Miami actually traded up with the Ravens in round two to get Howard, which cost them the No. 107 pick.
In 2016, Howard has appeared in four games and recorded 28 tackles, a forced fumble, no interceptions and a pass defense for the Dolphins.
We’ll have more regarding Howard’s return as the news is available.
