Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert is officially out for the team’s 1 p.m. kickoff against the Houston Texans after entering doubtful with a knee injury.
Mostert and backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater were among the five Dolphins inactives announced 90 minutes before kickoff.
With Mostert out, Jeff Wilson Jr. will likely receive a heavier workload in the Miami backfield. Either Myles Gaskin or Salvon Ahmed should get their most touches of the season. Both have four carries on in 2022.
Mostert, who has been oft-injured throughout his career, misses his first game with Miami this season. He, Wilson and coach Mike McDaniel have a reunion on tap next week, visiting their former team, the San Francisco 49ers.
With Bridgewater also unable to play due to a knee injury, rookie Skylar Thompson is in line to back up Tua Tagovailoa.
Healthy Dolphins inactives were cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, wide receiver Erik Ezukanma and tight end Hunter Long. Igbinoghene is inactive for his birthday, turning 23 on Sunday. Ezukanma is yet to be active for a game in his rookie season.
Texans inactives include cornerback Derek Stingley Jr., who was already deemed out with a hamstring ailment on Friday, and former University of Miami tight end Brevin Jordan.
