Like most teams in the NFL, the Dolphins have had to deal with a slew of COVID cases over the past week-plus. Running backs Miles Gaskin and Salwon Ahmed tested positive, but were then dropped from the COVID list on Friday to practice under them before Sunday. Jevon Hollande was removed from the COVID list on Saturday. Running behind Philip Lindsay, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle and practice team running back Gerid Doux remain on the list ahead of the game. ,

The Dolphins get their first look at Jets rookie quarterback Zack Wilson after he missed the last of the teams’ meeting, Miami’s 24-17 win at MetLife Stadium on Nov. 21. Veteran Joe Flaco started it for New York. ,

Duke Johnson, a seven-year veteran and the Miami Hurricanes’ all-time leading Rush, had one of his previous practice squad upgrades in that game against the Jets in the last meeting. He was back on the active roster for only a week, before Gaskin and Ahmed were relegated again as a COVID-19 replacement. ,

During the five-game winning streak, the Dolphins defense allowed only 11 points per game and forced 2.2 turnovers per game. ,

Sunday’s game would have been a homecoming for standout rookie Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore, a St. Thomas Aquinas high grad, but he is on the team’s COVID list.
