This wouldn't be good, but he does not need to play on a bad knee. If he is out then we will see a lot of McToast whom Brady smoked the last time we played them.
Speaking Thursday, coach Adam Gase was mum on reports that Howard had undergone surgery, saying only that he was not on crutches and observed Thursday's practice. The Dolphins' press corps is less optimistic about his status. Howard sounds all but certain to miss Sunday's game against the Patriots and is looking highly questionable for Week 15. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/11338/xavien-howard
