Mike Wallace Injury: Updates on Dolphins WR's Groin
The veteran wideout was limited in practice on Friday because of a nagging groin injury and was originally questionable for Sunday's game, according to Miami Herald columnist Armando Salguero via Twitter:

UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 22
From Jeff Darlington of NFL.com:
Dolphins WR Mike Wallace (groin) will play today, two team sources tell me. "He's fine," one source says.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) September 22, 2013
The Dolphins later confirmed Mike Wallace would play today:
Miami is already struggling to generate offense on the ground this year, ranking 28th in the league in rushing yards. On top of that, the Dolphins only have two other receivers with at least 10 catches through two games after Mike Wallace
Following a dismal season-opening performance in Week 1, Wallace exploded for 115 yards and a touchdown on nine catches in Week 2 at Indianapolis.
The fifth-year veteran accounted for more than 36 percent of the Dolphins' passing offense against the Colts and is on pace to record 80 receptions for 1,040 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013.
Wallace's groin injury is also unwelcome news for fantasy owners, many of whom are relying on Wallace to produce big numbers this weekend against Atlanta. The 27-year-old was one of the top-performing wide receivers in Week 2 across the fantasy landscape and is projected to have a big day against Atlanta's 30th-ranked pass defense this weekend in Miami.
A two-time 1,000-plus-yard receiver and a Pro Bowler with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2011, Wallace is a speed merchant who can blow by the fastest defenders in the league when healthy.
