Final injury report update of the week

The Dolphins have released their final injury report of the week leading up to Monday night's game at New Orleans and both Cameron Wake and Paul Soliai, who have practice limited throughout the week, are listed as questionable.

Both players are expected to travel with the Dolphins to New Orleans on Sunday. But the certainty of both playing remains in the air.

It is unlikely Soliai, who suffered a knee injury against Indianapolis two weeks ago, plays although he wants to and still has two more days to heal. Soliai was originally expected to miss up to four weeks and has been walking with a pronounced limp this week. He has also worn a brace in practice.

Wake, who sprained an MCL against Atlanta last week, is more likely to play although a final decision has not been made on that, either.

A reminder: The Dolphins are able to downgrade or upgrade players again on Sunday.

It is clear that cornerback Dimitri Patterson will miss his third consecutive game of the season with his groin injury. He has not practiced since Sept. 18 and is listed as out for the game.

Linebackers Koa Misi (shoulder) and Jonathan Freeny (shoulder) are listed as questionable. Misi is expected to play.
