The Dolphins will play the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium Friday night, except that, several of the prominent ones will not suit up.

NFL teams don’t have to make public an injured or “inactive” lists, but Miami did essentially list the following players as out:

It’s not surprising that rookie RB Kalen Ballage is being held out while in concussion protocol. However, with Frank Gore also not suiting up, that means that veteran reserve Senorise Perry will get extended playing time. And, that will likely mean in the first half.

Also, the Dolphins had already ruled DeVante Parker out with an injured hand, but now also Kenny Stills won’t play. This will mean more action for newcombers Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson. It also means that reserves Jakeem Grant and Leonte Carroo should see more playing time earlier in the game.

And, likewise defensive lineman Jordan Phillips not playing opens up some time for others like Davon Godchaux, etc.

If head coach Adam Gase and his staff wanted to get a good look at their depth, this is a great opportunity.
