Like most NFL teams, the Dolphins have had to deal with a cluster of COVID cases over the past week or so. Fugitives Miles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed tested positive but were then removed from the COVID list on Friday to train with them before Sunday. Runaway Phillip Lindsay, quarterback Jevon Holland, quarterback Jaylen Waddle, and running guard Jerryd Doakes’ training squad remain at the forefront of the roster. …

The Dolphins first saw Jets’ rookie quarterback Zach Wilson after missing out on a previous game, Miami’s 24-17 win at MetLife on November 21. Veteran Joe Flacco started this meeting in New York. …

Backward Duke Johnson, a seven-year veteran and the best Miami Hurricanes player ever, secured a promotion in that game against the Jets in the previous meeting. Again as a replacement for COVID-19, he was the only runner in the active lineup for most of the week before Gaskin and Ahmed were reactivated. …

During a five-game winning streak, the Dolphins’ defense averaged just 11 points per game and forced 2.2 concessions per game. …

Sunday’s game would be a homecoming for outstanding Jets newcomer Elijah Moore, a St Thomas Aquinas High School graduate, but is on the team’s COVID roster.
