      The Dolphins will consider moving Alonso to the weakside linebacker position, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

      Analysis: Miami considered making the move in December but thought it would be to much of a gamble to ask Alonso to switch positions without any advanced warning or practice. The Dolphins don't have any issues with the play of Alonso in the middle but believe with their personnel it could make the team better should he switch to the outside. This plan could change of course should the Dolphins acquire a weakside linebacker via free agency or the draft this year.

      Hogan said Tuesday that he sustained a "minor setback" with his thigh during Saturday's win against the Texans, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. However, Hogan added he "maybe could have returned."

      Analysis: Previously, shoulder and back issues afflicted Hogan in his first season in New England, the latter of which forced a DNP in Week 11. His current bout with a thigh concern doesn't appear to threaten his upcoming availability, but Hogan will have three chances to prove his health in advance of Sunday's AFC championship game versus the Steelers.

      Clayborn (biceps) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN.com reports.

      Freeman totaled 125 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's divisional round win over the Seahawks.

      Analysis: Freeman ran for 45 yards and a touchdown and hauled in four receptions for 80 yards in a break out game against Seattle. Although Tevin Coleman was the more effective runner, Freeman led the team with 80 receiving yards. He'll need to have another big game if the Falcons hope to earn a Super Bowl berth when they face the Packers on Sunday.
