Hill (ankle) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
An ankle injury capped Hill's reps during Wednesday's session, but his full participation in practice a day later clears up any lingering concern regarding his status for Sunday's game agains the Broncos. Hill already enters Week 3 action ranked first in the NFL in receiving touchdowns (three), third in receiving yards (255) and tied for fourth in receptions (16), but he could have more target volume headed his way Sunday if fellow starting wideout Jaylen Waddle (concussion) isn't able to play. Waddle remained a non-participant in practice Thursday for the second day in a row after suffering the brain injury in last Sunday's win over the Patriots.

Hill (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Meanwhile, Jaylen Waddle (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday, so the status of Miami's top two wideouts is worth monitoring as Sunday's game against the Broncos approaches. In the Dolphins' Week 2 win over the Patriots, Hill logged 54 of a possible 63 snaps on offense, while catching five of his nine targets for 40 yards and a touchdown.
Hill had five receptions (nine targets) for 40 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Patriots.
Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick is known for taking away the opponent's best weapon, and it was clear from the jump that the defense was not going to let the speedy wideout beat them deep. Hill still provided value for his fantasy managers with an early touchdown catch, his third through three games. Fellow starter Jaylen Waddle (head) was knocked out of the game after a rough hit to the head, so the Dolphins may need to rely on Hill more than usual if the former isn't able to go against the Broncos next Sunday.
Hill recorded 11 receptions on 15 targets for 215 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 36-34 win over the Chargers.
Hill teamed up with Tua Tagovailoa to singlehandedly dismantle the Chargers. He had five receptions of more than 20 yards, one of which went for a 35-yard touchdown late in the third quarter. Hill also tallied the game-winning score on a four-yard catch with just under two minutes remaining in the game. It was an incredible performance to begin the 2023 season and marked Hill's third career contest with more than 200 receiving yards -- his first with the Dolphins.
The NFL has decided there will be no disciplinary action taken against Hill in relation to an incident at Haulover Marina in June, ESPN.com reports.
Per NFL.com, Hill was investigated by police after a dispute with a South Florida marine worker who accused the wide receiver of assault. However, the issue was subsequently resolved in July, according to attorneys representing Hill and the worker. As the coming season approaches, Hill, who recorded 119 catches (on 170 targets) for 1,710 yards in 2022, is slated to reprise his role as a focal point in a Miami passing attack that also features fellow WR Jaylen Waddle, who caught 75 passes last year.
Hill brought in his only target for a 32-yard gain in the Dolphins' 31-18 preseason loss to the Jaguars on Saturday night.
Hill's catch came on the Dolphins' first play from scrimmage, with the speedster catching a pass over the middle and turning upfield for some extra yardage. Hill wasn't targeted again, but the cameo was all that was needed to corroborate his readiness for the regular season. The prolific wideout will now turn his attention to a Week 1 road matchup against the Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 10.
Hill caught his lone target for 13 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Texans.
Hill made a brief two-drive preseason debut -- the first of which lasted just one play after Tua Tagovailoa threw an INT on his first attempt -- which explains the fantasy star's lack of usage sans Jaylen Waddle (hip). Tua settled down and found his favorite target for a 13-yard pitch and catch on Miami's next drive. Hill doesn't need to prove anything before the regular season, so it was a welcomed sight to see the fantasy star and his quarterback get on the field as Week 1 approaches. The dynamic wideout will look to build on a 2022 season that saw him set new career highs in receptions (119) and receiving yards (1,710).
Hill is among the Dolphins' healthy starters expected to play in Saturday's preseason game against the Texans, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
The same applies to top QB Tua Tagovailoa, while fellow starting wideout Jaylen Waddle is dealing with an abdomen injury and is not in line to play Saturday. Though it appears as though Hill will see some reps against Houston, we wouldn't expect his appearance to be a lengthy one, with the team's depth options likely to see plenty of action after the key skill players get their work in.
Hill isn't slated to play in Friday's preseason game against the Falcons, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
The Dolphins offense also won't include QB Tua Tagovailoa, RBs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson and WR Jaylen Waddle, leaving Cedrick Wilson, River Cracraft, Braxton Berrios and Robbie Chosen, among others, as the team's available wide receivers. Hill's next chance for exhibition action will arrive Saturday, Aug. 19 at Houston.
