Injury roundup: Dolphins WRs Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle active vs. Jets

The Miami Dolphins will have two of their biggest offensive playmakers at their disposal as backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater makes his first start of the year Sunday against the New York Jets.

Miami has been optimistic all week that wide receivers Tyreek Hill (quad) and Jaylen Waddle (groin) will be able to play today despite both being listed as questionable, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported.

Both Hill and Waddle are officially active versus the Jets.

The WR duo logged limited practices on Thursday and Friday in the lead-up to Miami's third AFC East game of the season. The Dolphins already hold a 2-0 record within the division thanks to earlier victories against the Patriots and Bills.

Hill and Waddle's presence is sure to be a comfort for the second-string Bridgewater as he looks to push Miami to a 4-1 overall record. They are the only Dolphins players with double-digit receptions through four weeks and have combined for 51 receptions, 858 receiving yards and five touchdowns.

On the defensive side, Xavien Howard (groins) is inactive vs. the Jets after being listed as questionable.

The Dolphins and Jets kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
