The Miami Dolphins had difficulties moving the ball on offense against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 14. Making matters worse was the fact Tyreek Hill picked up an ankle injury during the contest that clearly hampered the speedster.

The first update on Hill is, thankfully, pretty positive.

NFL Network Ian Rapoport said Hill's ankle injury doesn't sound like it's a "significant" issue and the Dolphins will simply monitor it going forward. Given the lack of concern, it's appears the speedy wideout has avoided anything major.

Hill's health is undoubtedly a major story for this offense. His arrival this season has played a huge role in helping Tua Tagovailoa take a step forward as a potential franchise quarterback. The two have shown an instant connection, as Hill leads the league with 100 receptions while racking up a whopping 1,460 yards and 6 TDs so far.

Miami will need Hill at his best playmaking self if this team is to go on the road and take down the Buffalo Bills in what will be a massive game in Week 15. This division clash being moved up to Saturday gives Hill even less time to rest and recover, but hopefully he's a full go for this matchup.

The Dolphins are 7.5-point underdogs against the Bills, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's opening NFL Week 15 odds.
