Aikens (hand) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at Buffalo, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
Aikens sustained the hand injury Week 16 against the Jaguars, but he was able to practice fully Friday to help avoid the questionable tag. The 27-year-old has played a handful of defensive snaps in each of the last three games and should see a similar workload in the season finale.

2014 NFL Draft Needs: Denver Broncos
February 13, 2014
With Eric Decker headed for free agency and, quite likely, a bigger payday elsewhere, Denver could use the upcoming draft to restock at receiver.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2015
2014
Aikens may be to small to be a safety and not quite quick enough to be a corner in the NFL. It's because of this that he projects to be no more than a backup at either position.
Aikens was the Dolphins' fourth-round pick this past May and is getting a look at both corner and safety in practice. Aikens has the size to be an above average bump and run corner but with Cortland Finnegan and Brent Grimes entrenched as the top two cornerbacks he isn't likely to see the field a ton unless there is an injury this season.
