Both the Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers are 4-5 on the season, and they will be facing off this afternoon at 4:05 p.m. ET in what should be a very interesting game at Sun Life Stadium. Below are the injury reports for both teams.

Miami Dolphins

Out

OT Will Yeatman (knee)- The Dolphins were forced to place their swing tackle on the injured reserve with a torn ACL, thus hurting the Dolphins depth even more. This line is in dysfunction, and it’s always tough watching Lamar Miller trying to slug it out behind that line.

Questionable

WR Mike Wallace (hamstring)- Wallace will play today barring a setback, and the Dolphins No. 1 wideout should have a huge game today. The Chargers secondary is in dire straits, as Derek Cox has been a massively disappointing free agent signing.

CB Dimitri Patterson (groin)- Patterson should be able to play, but he’s going to be a game-time decision. If he is out, the Dolphins will have a hole at corner opposite of Brent Grimes, and they will also lose Patterson‘s propensity for making big plays.

C Mike Pouncey (illness)- Pouncey’s role on the team has become even more important, and I fully expect him to play.

Probable

SS Reshad Jones (groin)

K Caleb Sturgis (right groin)

P Brandon Fields (shoulder)

RB Daniel Thomas (ankle)

FS Chris Clemons (knee)

LB Koa Misi (knee)

TE Michael Egnew (neck)

LB Jelani Jenkins (foot)

San Diego Chargers

Out

LT King Dunlap (neck)- He’s technically out with a strained neck, but the Chargers are also worried that their star left tackle suffered his third concussion of the season. If so, he’s likely out for the year, which would be a tough blow for Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense. But the key thing is Dunlap’s long-term health, and we can only hope that he didn’t sustain a concussion last week.

Questionable

FB Le’Ron McClain (ankle)

LB Jarret Johnson (hamstring)

S Jahleel Addae (ankle)

C Nick Hardwick (neck)

WR Eddie Royal (toe)- And once again, Royal is listed questionable with a toe injury that he will undoubtedly play through.

Probable

RT D.J. Fluker (illness)

LB Manti Te’o (elbow)

OT Mike Remmers (ankle)

G Chad Rinehart (toe)

DE Lawrence Guy (toe)

RB Ryan Mathews (hamstring)- He suffered a minor hamstring tweak last week, returned to the game, he’s practiced all week without a lick of an issue, and he’s locked in to play today.
