Here is the final injury report for both teams:
Questionable: CB Dimitri Patterson (ankle)
Injury analysis: As expected, the Dolphins will be without rookie cornerbacks Taylor and Davis. Both missed practice the entire week. This impacts depth in the secondary and special teams. Nolan Carroll will play a huge role as Miami's third cornerback, and Cleveland's offense could try to target him on Sunday. Patterson is questionable, but he's expected to play. The Dolphins definitely need him. Jordan will make his NFL debut Sunday after battling back from a shoulder injury. Look for Jordan to play in pass-rushing downs and on special teams.
Injury analysis: Unlike the Dolphins, Cleveland will be without its first-round pick. Mingo injured his lung in the preseason and won’t make it back for Week 1. Rubin and Skrine are two recent injuries that could have a heavy impact on Cleveland’s defense. Both are questionable. Otherwise, Cleveland and Miami are healthy entering Week 1.
