The man who intercepted a pair of passes in each of Miami’s

 last two games won’t play Sunday as he recovers from knee surgery.Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that cornerback Xavien Howard recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery. The injury and the procedure will keep Howard out of Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

A meniscus repair keeps the cushion in place Youth N'Keal Harry Jersey , but it entails a much longer recovery time.Howard was named the AFC defensive player of the week for his two interceptions last Sunday against the Bills. Last year against the Patriots, Howard intercepted two Tom Brady passes in a Miami win. If the Cardinals were hoping to hustle up a market for Josh Rosen, the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft did them no favors.After the Giants took Duke quarterback Daniel Jones sixth overall and Washington went with Dwayne Haskins 15th, the list of potential destinations got considerably smaller.Those two were among the most-mentioned destinations for the quarterback displaced by No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray.The other leading suitor Color Rush N'Keal Harry Jersey , the Dolphins, used their first-rounder on Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, and clearly need someone other than Ryan Fitzpatrick for this year and beyond.“We’re investigating all avenues,” Dolphins General Manager Chris Grier said Thursday. “I’m not going to talk about anything going on.
