  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Contributes in win

    Ogbah finished with 1.5 sacks in the Dolphins' 34-13 win over the Jets on Friday.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Gets first sack of season

    Ogbah recorded three tackles (one solo), including a sack, and an interception in Sunday's 70-20 win versus Denver.

    Although he played just 22 defensive snaps in Week 3, Ogbah was able to make a mark on the stat sheet, including logging his first sack of the young 2023 season and the first interception of his career. If he keeps that kind of efficiency up, it's hard to imagine he doesn't get more playing time soon.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Fully recovered

    Ogbah says he's been medically cleared to compete after suffering a torn triceps last season, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Ogbah suffered the injury in Week 9 last season and finished 2022 on IR. Despite being cleared, the Dolphins have been taking it easy with him so far, according to Marcel Louis-Jacques of, who also notes that Ogbah would have been able to play again last season had the Dolphins advanced further in the playoffs.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Recovery sounds encouraging

    Head coach Mike McDaniel said that Ogbah has been "recovering soundly" from his torn triceps, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Ogbah, who tore his triceps back in November, is anticipated to be ready to go for the start of OTAs in May. It was previously reported that the 29-year-old could've played if the Dolphins had advanced past the wild-card round, per Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network, so Ogbah should be either at or near full strength to begin the offseason.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Would have played moving forward

    Ogbah (triceps) was expected to be cleared to play if the Dolphins advanced in the postseason, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.

    As the Dolphins players cleared out their lockers Monday, Ogbah said that the plan was for him to return from his triceps injury in the AFC divisional round if the the team had beaten Buffalo on Sunday. It appears as if the defensive end should have no issue being ready to go for the start of training camp this summer. Ogbah appeared in nine games in 2022, recording 11 tackles, including one sack.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Done for season

    Miami placed Ogbah (triceps) on injured reserve Monday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    Ogbah sustained a ruptured triceps during the Dolphins' win versus Cleveland in Week 9, and he'll now spend the remainder of the 2022 season on the injured reserve list. Ben Stille may be forced into a regular role with Ogbah out.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Suffers season-ending injury

    Ogbah sustained a torn triceps during Sunday's win over the Browns and will require season-ending surgery, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Ogbah exited Sunday's matchup in the first half and will be unavailable for the Dolphins down the stretch. The 29-year-old appeared in eight games for Miami this year and logged 11 tackles (seven solo), including a sack. Zach Sieler is a candidate to see increased playing time over the second half of the season.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Will not return

    Ogbah (elbow) will not return Sunday against the Browns.

    Ogbah left the game in the first half, but he was not originally ruled out. In his absence, Zach Sieler will likely provide depth behind the starters on the edge, Raekwon Davis and Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Exits with injury Sunday

    Ogbah (elbow) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns.

    Ogbah previously missed one game with a back issue Week 9, but he appears to have picked up a new elbow injury Sunday. With the veteran out for the time being, expect Zach Sieler to step up into a bigger role alongside starting defensive linemen Raekwon Davis and Christian Wilkins.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Suiting up in Detroit

    Ogbah (back) is active Week 8 against the Lions.

    The Dolphins only have five active defensive linemen for their 3-4 scheme, suggesting Ogbah wasn't in much danger of missing this practice despite a questionable tag. The veteran hasn't recorded a sack since Week 1, however, which would put him on pace for a career low in that department.

  • Dolphins' Emmanuel Ogbah: Deemed questionable for Sunday

    Ogbah (back) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Lions, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    Ogbah was upgraded to a full participant Friday after back-to-back limited sessions to start the week. However, he'll likely still be a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 1:00 PM ET kickoff. If Ogbah misses a second straight game due to the back injury, expect Zach Sieler, who played a season-high 54 defensive snaps in Week 7, to see an increased role again.
