Jordan Phillips will not play Sunday against the Jets, ruled inactive due to an ankle injury he suffered the week before. Davon Godchaux will start at defensive tackle in his place.
Phillips did not practice all week and was in a walking boot as recently as Friday.
The news was better for the Dolphins’ other injured starters. Jay Ajayi, Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker all will play after missing practice in the days leading up to the game.
The rest of Miami’s inactive list: cornerbacks Cordrea Tankersley and Torry McTyer; linebacker Rey Maualuga; guard Isaac Asiata; and tackles Eric Smith and Sam Young.
Never miss a local story.
Meanwhile, the Jets will have to stop Ndamukong Suh without Jets right guard Brian Winters, who is inactive.
