Friday update: Parker got in limited work all week and is listed as questionable on the final injury report for Week 15.
Wednesday AM update: Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said it’s too early in the week to say whether or not DeVante Parker will play this week, per Safid Deen. The Dolphins return to practice Wednesday as they begin preparations for this Sunday’s game against the Patriots.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker suffered a “slight hamstring strain” in Week 14, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Parker was forced from last week’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but looks like he at least has a chance to play this week against the New England Patriots.
Parker has played each week, but has missed time during games due to nagging injuries. He’s been much more inconsistent than he was last season, which has some to do with a rookie quarterback, but also his small injuries. His target numbers have been elevated of late, as the team really doesn’t have much depth at wide receiver, especially with Preston Williams on I.R.
The good news is that we got to see rookie Lynn Bowden get in some needed work last week, as he caught seven passes for 82 yards with Parker, Mike Gesicki and Jakeem Grant sidelined for much of the game. Their status will likely determine how much work Bowden picks up this week.
