After a week of uncertainty, the Miami Dolphins received good injury news on several key players Thursday morning.

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa (back/ankle), wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (groin) and left tackle Terron Armstead (toe) are all listed as questionable following Wednesday's practice. Thankfully for Miami, they're all expected to play on Thursday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Miami Dolphins Injury Updates

This news provides a major boost to the Dolphins' offense ahead of their Week 4 clash with the Bengals. Tagovailoa will be back under center after passing for 925 yards and 8 touchdowns during the first three weeks, leading Miami to a 3-0 start in the process. It was unclear if he'd be able to play this week after suffering a controversial back injury during Week 3, but apparently he's good to go.

Waddle has been Tagovailoa's top target so far, leading the team in targets (30) and receiving yards (342). He and Tyreek Hill have combined to form one of the top pass-catching duos in the league, making Tagovailoa's life much easier.

Lastly, Armstead's impact should not be understated. Left tackle is one of the most important positions in football, as the three-time Pro Bowler is responsible for protecting Tagovailoa in the pocket and creating holes for Miami's running backs.

Dolphins vs Bengals Week 4 Odds

With all three set to play tonight, Miami will have a much better chance of upsetting Cincinnati on the road. The Dolphins are currently listed as 3.5-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds, but having their full arsenal of weapons will help them keep pace with the reigning AFC Conference champs.

Beating Joe Burrow and co. won't be easy, but now Miami has a realistic chance of doing so and remaining undefeated.
