Report: Miami Dolphins Offer Concerning Update on DeVante Parker’s Status for Week 2

1 Min Read

The Miami Dolphins listed their No. 1 wide receiver DeVante Parker as a game-time decision for their Week 2 matchup with the Buffalo Bills.

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores made the announcement, but Parker reportedly does want to play on Sunday.

Parker practiced on Wednesday after sustaining an injury during the team’s Week 1 loss to the New England Patriots.

Miami clearly missed Parker, as it scored just 11 points in the game. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick tossed three interceptions in the contest.

Last season, Parker had the best year of his young career, totaling 72 receptions for 1,202 yards and nine touchdowns. It was the first season of his career that he was able to play all 16 games.

Miami is looking to rebound and get back to .500 on the young season. Having a weapon like Parker at Fitzpatrick’s disposal will be crucial to Miami getting in the win column on Sunday.
