Dolphins DT Christian Wilkins practiced today and he expected to come off COVID-19 list. That puts him on track to play Sunday after missing the last two games. RB Myles Gaskin practiced in a non-contact jersey and will be designated to return off IR. Brian Flores was noncommittal if he will be able to play Sunday. G Solomon Kindley (foot) didn't practice. If both Kindley and Jesse Davis (covid-19 list) can't play Sunday, Robert Hunt fills one spot and Michael Deiter is an option for the other
