Miami Dolphins Travis Swanson on taking over as the starting center
The Dolphins practiced Friday.
Well, the majority of them did.
Several key players did not.
Including: defensive ends Cameron Wake, who could miss his first game since 2015.
Wake has not practiced all week and has missed four of the last six with the knee issue.
Andre Branch did not play against the Patriots, missed practice Wednesday but was out there on a limited basis Thursday and Friday.
More bad news: wide receiver DeVante Parker’s availability for Sunday does not look promising.
He warmed up with the team briefly before he and Adam Gase made the long walk to the exercise bike, where Parker spent the rest of the period open to reporters. Parker, who is dealing with a quad injury, is in danger of missing his fourth of the team’s five games in 2018.
Also not practicing Friday: tight end A.J. Derby, cornerback Bobby McCain and fourth-string quarterback Luke Falk.
It does not appear as though Derby or McCain will play Sunday against the Bengals.
UPDATE (1:37 p.m.): The Dolphins have ruled out Derby, Falk and McCain. Wake is doubtful to play against the Bengals. Seven Dolphins are questionable to play: Branch, Parker, safety Reshad Jones, safety T.J. McDonald, linebacker Chase Allen, linebacker Stephone Anthony and running back Brandon Bolden.
