His return status has been officially categorized as questionable.

The Dolphins offense is now having trouble in the game; they are behind 10-3 midway through the second quarter. With two receptions for 24 yards, Waddle has made a major contribution. Almost all of Miami’s 36 yards gained in their first 14 plays have come from Waddle. It might be especially harder for the offense to rally without Waddle beside wide receiver Tyreek Hill if he is sidelined.

No other Dolphins receiver has yet to record a reception, but Hill has five grabs for 19 yards thus far.
