ward was honored as the AFC defensive player of the week Mike Gesicki Jersey , he sat out practice with a sore knee.So it goes for the Miami Dolphins, with injuries continuing to outnumber achievement.Howard joined his team’s long injury list Wednesday, and his availability is uncertain for this week’s game against New England .Fellow Dolphins cornerback Bobby McCain said he was confident Howard will play. Coach Adam Gase sounded less optimistic, describing Howard’s status as week to week.Gase declined to rule out surgery, but said he expects Howard back this season.Howard was hurt when tackled returning an interception during Sunday’s 21-17 win over Buffalo . He missed one play and then rejoined the lineup, but the injury worsened after the game.Howard has seven interceptions, including two in each of the past two games, and had two interceptions the previous time he faced Tom Brady. Howard seemed destined for his first Pro Bowl, and Gase didn’t try to sugarcoat the magnitude of losing the third-year pro.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins, veteran LB Mike Hull agree to terms on 1-year contractThe next stop: Ryan Fitzpatrick moves into starting QB role with Dolphins Cameron Wake Jersey , for nowDolphins sign former Jaguars guard-center Chris ReedDolphins sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to two-year, $11 million dealEnd of the road: Dolphins trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for picks“If you throw the ball at him and you’re inaccurate, he’s not just going to knock it down 鈥?he’s going to pick it off,” Gase said. “He’s one of our best players, if not our best player, on that side of the ball. You’re not going to replace him.”The Patriots, already favored by more than a touchdown on the road, would love not having to worry about Howard.“He’s an outstanding player,” coach Bill Belichick said before learning of the injury. “He’s got very good instincts, very good ball skills. The interception he made against us last year and the one against the Colts this year were two of the best plays a corner could make Jason Taylor Jersey , getting in good position and then finding the ball late and making a good catch. He’s a playmaker.”Led by Howard, the Dolphins (6-6) have used turnovers to stay competitive . They rank second in the NFL with 19 interceptions and third with 25 takeaways.As a result, they’re on the fringe of the playoff race despite a depleted roster. Gase said weeks ago his team couldn’t afford to lose any more players, but the season-long wave of injuries has continued.“We’re losing guys left and right,” he said.Said rookie defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick: “It’s hard to win games without the people you started with.”Eleven players have suffered season-ending injuries. McCain, for one, said Howard’s injury isn’t nearly that serious.“He’ll be just fine, I promise,” McCain said. “Hopefully we can get him back Thursday or Friday.” MIAMI (AP)Jarvis Landry is leaving one bad offense for another one.The Miami Dolphins agreed to trade the Pro Bowl receiver to the Cleveland Browns for two draft picks, two people familiar with the deal said Friday.The people confirmed the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because under NFL rules Nat Moore Jersey , no trade can be completed until Wednesday, the start of the league’s new year. The Dolphins will receive a fourth-round pick this year and a seventh-rounder in 2019, one of the people said.Miami finished sixth-worst in scoring last season and went 6-10. Cleveland finished last in scoring and went 0-16.The Browns were desperate to land a playmaker such as Landry, who will complement former Pro Bowl receiver Josh Gordon. Landry has been selected to three consecutive Pro Bowls and has 400 receptions, an NFL record for a fourth-year player.”Y’all better understand (stuff) about to get SERIOUS… ON MY MAMA,” Landry tweeted after news of the deal broke.The trade was among a flurry Friday by the Browns. They agreed to acquire quarterback Tyrod Taylor from the Buffalo Bills for a third-round draft pick, and agreed to send quarterback DeShone Kizer to the Green Bay Packers for cornerback Damarious Randall.Landry signed a $16 million, one-year franchise tag Thursday with Miami, clearing the path for his trade. The Dolphins began shopping him when the parties were unable to reach an agreement on a long-term contract.He’s likely to get that extension from the Browns.Landry made $894,000 last year Mark Duper Jersey , when he completed the contract he signed as a rookie. He was by far the highest-profile Dolphins player eligible for free agency, and perhaps the best player on an offense that sputtered with quarterback Jay Cutler.But Landry’s volatile personality became a concern for Miami. He was ejected in the fourth quarter of the season finale, a loss to Buffalo, and coach Adam Gase said the episode was embarrassing and ”extremely bad.”Miami’s passing attack in 2017 gave Landry a bizarre stat line: 112 receptions to lead the league and break his own franchise record, but an average of 8.8 yards per catch to rank 110th. He a career-high nine touchdowns but finished 13 yards shy of 1,000.Landry’s departure adds a receiver to the Dolphins’ long list of offseason needs. Receivers Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker are expected to return, along with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who missed all of 2017 because of a knee injury.Cleveland is $113 million under the salary cap and was expected to seek an impact receiver in free agency. Acquiring Landry has likely changed those plans and the Browns can address a multitude of other needs.Landry typically plays slot receiver, and the Browns have been disappointed with the production of former first-round draft pick Corey Coleman, who has been injured the past two seasons.Gordon may benefit most from Landry’s arrival and the talented 26-year-old posted four trophy emojis on his Twitter page after the news of trade broke.With 12 picks in this year’s draft Mark Clayton Jersey , including the Nos. 1 and 4 overall and five in the first 64, the Browns had the ability to pull off a major deal for a major player.Hue Jackson has handed his offense over to former Pittsburgh coordinator Todd Haley, who should know how to best use a player of Landry’s skill after coaching Antonio Brown the past few seasons.Cleveland’s offense didn’t have a legitimate go-to receiver last season until Gordon returned from an indefinite NFL suspension with five games left. Running back Duke Johnson finished as the club’s leading receiver.Without enough players to spread out defenses, the Browns were too often one-dimensional, and their lack of options made life more difficult for Kizer, who led the NFL with 22 interceptions—AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.—
