▪ The Dolphins did not practice Wednesday, but if they had, nine players would have sat out with injury: defensive end Andre Branch (knee), guard Jermon Bushrod (foot), Xavien Howard (illness), quarterback Matt Moore (foot), center Mike Pouncey (hip), defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (knee), cornerback Cordrea Tankersley (ankle/shoulder), safety Michael Thomas (knee) and running back Damien Williams (shoulder).
In reality, however, these are the four to monitor: Bushrod, Moore, Tankersley and Williams.
▪ Ndamukong Suh did something remarkable for a defensive tackle Monday: He played all 61 snaps.
“He didn’t want to come out,” defensive coordinator Matt Burke said.
And because the Dolphins got off the field so well — the Patriots converted none of their of 11 third downs, much to Burke’s surprise — Suh didn’t have to.
Suh was a force, ... But was it his best game of the year? Burke wouldn’t go that far, saying Suh always affects the game, regardless of his stat line. ....
