Heading into their Monday night game against the New Orleans Saints, the Miami Dolphins are adding two more offensive players to the reserve/COVID list.

Wide receiver Albert Wilson and guard Solomon Kindley will miss the game after being placed on the list Sunday afternoon. The two join cornerback Justin Coleman, linebacker Duke Riley, center Greg Mancz, guard Robert Jones, tight end Cethan Carter, and wide receiver Lynn Bowden Jr. (IR) as players with COVID-19.

With Wilson out, Isaiah Ford and Preston Williams should get more opportunities in the passing game. Ford has had a larger role in recent weeks, especially with Jaylen Waddle out last week, so it could be expected that he would get the first shot to replace Wilson.

Kindley started earlier in the season before Austin Jackson took the left guard spot, but he hasn’t played an offensive snap since Week 2. He was also one of the Dolphins’ only options for a backup offensive lineman with the only other being Cameron Tom who was elevated from the practice squad.
