The Miami Dolphins are taking on the New York Jets in Week 15 of the NFL season. Miami came into this game with a loaded injury report, and it seems to be getting longer. Wide receiver Jaylen Waddle went up for a reception from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and landed hard. He rose to his knees but then clutched his chest and was looked at by trainers.

Before leaving the game with his injury, Waddle had brought in both of his targets for 21 yards. Starting wide receiver Tyreek Hill was ruled out before the game due to an ankle injury. If Waddle cannot return, Cedrick Wilson Jr., Braxton Berrios, River Cracraft and Chase Claypool would be the next in line for work.
