Dolphins' Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle active; Xavien Howard out

Miami's Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, who were listed as questionable on the injury report, are active for Sunday's game against the New York Jets.

However, the Dolphins will be without Xavien Howard, their top cornerback, as he is inactive because of a groin injury.

Hill was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday with a quad injury and Waddle is continuing to deal with a groin injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday.

Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel had said Friday that Hill, who leads the NFL in receiving yards through four games, would play Sunday, but the coach wouldn't divulge much more than that to his old friend, Jets coach Robert Saleh.

"I can see with 100% conviction that Tyreek will play or he won't play," McDaniel joked. "That's all Saleh is getting."

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater will start for Miami with Tua Tagovailoa sidelined with a head injury.
