WR Bess out for Miami, Hartline questionable

Posted by Chris Brown on December 21, 2012 – 1:13 pm

The Dolphins will be down an important receiver on Sunday as slot receiver Davone Bess is out with a back injury.

Bess did not practice at all this week and will not dress for the Dolphins game against the Bills. He is second in receptions and receiving yards for Miami this season.

Meanwhile leading receiver Brian Hartline is questionable for Sunday’s game with a back injury as well. Hartline was limited in practice Friday after he failed to practice Thursday.

If Hartline can’t play Sunday it would leave Miami’s receiving corps extremely inexperienced, with Marlon Moore, Armon Binns and Rishaw Matthews as the only healthy wideouts. Binns just signed with the Dolphins a few weeks ago and Matthews and Moore have just six receptions each for Miami this season.

Dolphins WRs still hobbled

Posted by Chris Brown on December 20, 2012 – 5:34 pm

Dolphins leading receiver Brian Hartline was limited in practice Wednesday with a back problem, but he wasn’t able to practice Thursday joining fellow receiver Davone Bess, Miami’s number two wideout.

Bess is also dealing with a back injury and did not practice for a second straight day Thursday. If neither are able to play the Dolphins would be going with Marlon Moore and Armon Binns. Binns has appeared in just one game for the Dolphins this season while Moore has just six catches and a touchdown in 12 games for Miami this season.

Here’s the rest of Miam’s injury report.
