Draft Scout Walt Aikens News
10/19/16 - S Walt Aikens was surprisingly inactive last week (reportedly because he was late for a team meeting) but should be active this week. Aikens said it was a "personal issue" that led to him being inactive but said everything is OK now.
10/17/16 - S Walt Aikens, who recently drew praise from coaches due to his special teams play, was inactive against Pittsburgh in a surprising move. Aikens wasn't on the injury report last week.
11/30/15 - FS Walt Aikens, a fixture in the defense, especially the nickel package, all season, hardly played on Sunday. It seemed Aikens, who remained a core special teams player, might have been demoted.
11/26/15 - FS Walt Aikens (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice. Aikens had struggled so far this season and plays mostly in the nickel package. But if he's limited for any reason Miami might have to go with Michael Thomas, who plays against the run, or seldom-used Jordan Kovacs.
10/19/15 - FS Walt Aikens, who lost his starting job to Michael Thomas, got plenty of playing time against the Titans. Aikens and guard Billy Turner are two players getting a second look, so to speak, from interim coach Dan Campbell. Expect to see Aikens rotated into games more frequently, especially in the nickel defense.
