Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki took a crucial step to play on Sunday against the New England Patriots.

Gesicki reportedly was limited in Thursday’s practice despite dealing with a shoulder injury.

The tight end also posted a message on social media that signals that he seems to be planning to play against the Pats.

Gesicki has come on in recent weeks, as he has caught 14 passes over the Dolphins’ last two games.

Now in his third NFL season, Gesicki has become one of the Dolphins’ more reliable offensive weapons.

So far this year, he has caught 44 passes for 602 yards and six touchdowns.

He certainly would help Miami against that Pats, and his participation in the game would allow him to continue building chemistry with rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.

The Dolphins are currently 8-5 and in the playoff hunt in the AFC.
