08/22/17 - C/G Kraig Urbik is in danger of missing the Sept. 10 opener against Tampa Bay due to a knee injury, according to head coach Adam Gase. Urbik, who started six games last year, didn't practice last week and missed the Baltimore game. Gase said Urbik might require surgery.
08/12/17 - C/G Kraig Urbik lined up as the starting left guard on Saturday, with C Mike Pouncey on the field. It's long been thought Urbik might end up with the left-guard job vacated by Ted Larsen (biceps).
12/28/16 - C Kraig Urbik struggled at times last week in his first start at the position but eventually settled in and did a nice job. It appears Urbik will continue to keep the starting job for the foreseeable future.
12/18/16 - C Kraig Urbik started in place of Anthony Steen against the Jets and was part of a pass protection unit that only allowed one sack. Miami only rushed for 67 yards (2.5 yards per carry), which isn't good, but Urbik, an eight-year veteran, didn't have a botched snap with backup QB Matt Moore and seems to be the new starter.
11/16/16 - G Kraig Urbik is the most likely candidate to start at left guard with LT Branden Albert (wrist) being out this week. LT Laremy Tunsil probably will shift to left tackle. Urbik was on the field last week for the drive that resulted on RB Damien Williams' 2-yard touchdown run.
09/30/16 - OL Kraig Urbik, the third-stringer, started at center Thursday at Cincinnati.
08/28/16 - C/G Kraig Urbik might be fighting for a job this week against Tennessee. The Dolphins are packed at guard and center among starters Mike Pouncey, Laremy Tunsil and Jermon Bushrod and backups Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner and Anthony Steen. That could leave Urbik to battle veteran OTs Ulrick John and Sam Young depending on how many offensive linemen Miami keeps.
08/23/16 - C/G Kraig Urbik could get a chance at backup duties this week with C Mike Pouncey (hip) sidelined. Urbik is battling C/G Jamil Douglas for a backup OL job.
08/04/16 - C/G Kraig Urbik, a veteran brought in for depth, has been working at backup guard but hasn't really received much time with the starters. Urbik could have a tough time making the roster considering Miami won't keep more nine offensive linemen and likely will have eight.
06/09/16 - G Kraig Urbik remains in contention for a roster spot despite a crowded field that includes draftees such as Laremy Tunsil (first round, 2016), Dallas Thomas (third round, 2013), Billy Turner (third round, 2014) and Jamil Douglas (fourth round, 2015), and free-agent signee Jermon Bushrod (Chicago). Head coach Adam Gase said Urbik's experience should work to his advantage. But the other guards have youth and draft status on their side.
