Dolphins likely without DB Howard vs. Pats

The Miami Dolphins are likely to be without cornerback Xavien Howard Sunday against the New England Patriots because of a knee injury suffered last Sunday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN reports.

Coach Adam Gase termed Howard as "week-to-week" with the injury.

It's a big setback for the Dolphins (6-6), who are holding on to slim playoff hopes largely because of their defensive playmakers like Howard.

"He's one of our best players, if not our best player on that side of the ball," Gase said. "We've got to make some adjustments if we have to on defense. Our guys have to step up. If he can't go, you're not going to replace him."

Howard suffered the injury during his second interception of Bills quarterback Josh Allen late in the third quarter Sunday. He missed just one snap and returned to play the fourth quarter. He didn't say anything initially to coaches or the media about the injury.

Gase didn't answer a question about whether Howard will need surgery, but he says he expects Howard to return this season.
