After Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores revealed that wide receiver DeVante Parker suffered an injury setback, it now sounds like the team is going to be without the 28-year-old for a little while.

Parker is reportedly going on injured reserve.

Injuries have plagued Parker’s 2021 campaign, as he has been limited to just five games. He’ll now have to watch some more contests from the sideline.

This season, Parker has 25 receptions to his credit for 327 yards and a touchdown. He looked good in Week 8, but that was clearly false hope for Dolphins fans hoping to see him at 100 percent for the rest of the season.

The Dolphins will now have to find a way forward without Parker until he’s able to return. Miami will face the Houston Texans this weekend in a battle of one-win teams.
