13 hours ago Jevon Holland: A game-changer in Vic Fangio’s defense
Photo by Carmen Mandato/Getty Images The third-year safety always finds his way to the football. Miami’s offense hit the ground running when Mike McDaniel became head coach, but the defense struggled to keep up. The Dolphins gave up 24.1 points per game in Josh Boyer’s system, and following a 34-31 playoff loss to the Buffalo Bills — a change was needed. The Dolphins didn’t search for an up-and-coming coordinator, paying up to have Vic Fangio’s 41 years of coaching experience at the core of the defense. It’d make sense if players needed time to adjust after four years of Boyer’s blitz-happy defense — that’s not the case for Jevon Holland. A former second-round pick, Holland is nothing short of a nightmare to opposing offenses. The third-year safety has 25 tackles, two forced fumbles, and two pass breakups. He spent an extended period playing slot cornerback as a member of the Oregon Ducks, something Fangio takes advantage of. Holland has already lined up in the slot 39 times this season — more than his rookie-season total of 36. In fact, he’s on pace for 221 snaps after 102 snaps lined up in the slot last season. He spent 94 snaps at free safety and another 64 inside the box. “He has a tremendous impact,” Fangio said on Thursday. “We utilize his abilities a lot. And as you alluded to, some of it’s not very visible to the average person. “He’s just a tremendous player. He has a chance to be a special, special player in the NFL.” Lining up closer to the line of scrimmage allows Holland to be a disruptive force. For example, take his two forced fumbles against the Denver Broncos. He’s been consistent in the middle of the defense — but wait, there’s more. Holland has been targetted 13 times, opposing quarterbacks are completing 65 percent of passes at an average of 8.1 yards per reception — good for a 91.8 — PFF’s highest coverage grade among safeties. “It feels good, but it doesn’t really carry over to next week,” he said of his Week 3 success. “So if I’m not performing week in and week out, then it doesn’t even really matter. It does feel good though. My dad is happy. If anybody is happy… my pops. He’s definitely bragging to his homeboys and what not.” PFF’s highest-graded safety through three weeks, Holland appreciates the recognition but needs just one person’s approval. “Really the one that’s more important is what [Brian Baldinger] thinks of me,” Holland said. “That’s the most important. He’s like the best analyst I’ve come across. I love what ‘Baldy’ says. “If I’m in ‘Baldy’s’ breakdowns at the end of the week, then I know I did something right.”

15 hours ago Dolphins vs. Bills injury report update: Thursday’s Week 4 injuries
Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/Getty Images We update the injury status for the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills ahead of their Week 4 contest. The Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills have released their respective Thursday injury reports ahead of a Week 4 meeting between the AFC East rivals. Both teams are already dealing with some key players being sidelined during the week’s practices, and the Bills had a potential key player pop onto the report for the first time Thursday afternoon. Miami’s injury report includes three players who did not participate in the day’s practice: wide receiver River Cracraft, wide receiver Erik Ezukanma, and linebacker Jaelan Phillips. Cracraft sustained a shoulder injury during the team’s win over the Denver Broncos in Week 3, an injury that could result in an extended stay on the sideline and possibly land him on injured reserve. Asked about that possibility on Wednesday, head coach Mike McDaniel said, “We are we are taking a little time to kind of assess that. That’s definitely not a certainty but it’s definitely not out of the question either. We’re just assessing and seeing how his body responds day in, day out. But I can promise you this, he will do whatever it takes to be back as fast as possible. I can promise you that.” Ezukanma was inactive last week in what was believed to be a healthy scratch, but he has not practiced at all this week with a neck injury. Phillips is dealing with an oblique issue. The good news for the Dolphins on Thursday was the upgrading of tackle Terron Armstead and center Connor Williams. Both players were non-participants in Wednesday’s workout, but then were limited participants on Thursday. Armstead has been battling back, knee, and ankle injuries all year while Williams sustained a groin injury during last week’s game. Also limited in practice were running back Salvon Ahmed (groin), safety DeShon Elliott (ankle / groin), and tight end Tyler Kroft (back). Full participants in the day’s practice included tight end Durham Smythe, who was upgraded from a limited participant on Wednesday as he deals with a hamstring issue. Cornerback Eli Apple (neck) and tight end Julian Hill (ankle) were also full participants. Wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who missed last week’s game due to a concussion was not included in the injury report as he cleared the concussion protocols on Thursday. The Bills had a key player land on the injury report on Thursday with a wrist injury. Long snapper Reid Ferguson, brother to Miami long snapper Blake, did not practice after not being on the report on Wednesday. Also a non-participant was safety Jordan Poyer, who missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury he sustained in Week 3 as the Bills beat the Washington Commanders. Offensive lineman Ryan Bates and defensive back Siran Neal were both limited on Thursday, both upgraded from non-participants on Wednesday, and both dealing with ankle injuries. Also dealing with an ankle injury is defensive end Leonard Floyd, but he was a full participant on Thursday after not practicing on Wednesday. Also jumping up to a full participant on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday was safety Micah Hyde, who is dealing with a hamstring issue. Cornerback Taron Johnson moved from limited to full on Thursday as he deals with a hip injury.
