AFC East Notes: Dolphins, Jets, Patriots


  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald believes five players on the Dolphins could have a case to make the Pro Bowl, including LT Laremy Tunsil, LB Kiko Alonso, K Jason Sanders, CB Xavien Howard, and DB Minkah Fitzpatrick.
  • Jackson writes that it would be “very surprising” if Jake Brendel does not start at left guard in Week 12 after Dolphins HC Adam Gase praised his play last Sunday: “He did well. He played very aggressive. He finished as well as anybody that was playing on Sunday.”
  • Jackson says the Dolphins “need to consider” giving DT Vincent Taylor more playing time next season after he recovers from a season-ending foot injury and points out that Taylor averages one tackle every 8.6 snaps.
  • According to Armando Salguero, Dolphins CB Bobby McCain has officially cleared the league’s concussion protocol.
