Miami scored 70 points on the Denver Broncos, and it happened without Jaylen Waddle. The talented wide receiver did not play because of a concussion. He has continued with concussion protocol and is practicing. According to Cameron Wolfe, Dolphins’ head coach Mike McDaniel said Waddle will ‘fully practice’ Wednesday. If all goes well, Waddle will clear the protocol and be set to return to action against the Bills. He has eight receptions for 164 yards on 11 targets. Waddle is averaging 20.5 yards per catch.
