Dolphins coach Joe Philbin remains "encouraged" by the way Brandon Gibson has returned from last year's patellar tendon tear.

"I think he’s a quarterback-friendly guy," Philbin said Thursday. "He’s got very good hands and he’s smart. He can read coverages, understands the leverage." Philbin's comments should put to rest the talk that Gibson might get left off the 53-man roster. Although he's now rotating with rookie Jarvis Landry in the slot, Gibson can still be considered Miami's No. 3 receiver.

According to the Miami Herald, "some NFL people" continue to believe Brandon Gibson isn't a lock for the Dolphins' 53-man roster.

It makes sense from a dot-connecting standpoint; Miami used a second-round pick on Jarvis Landry, who plays the same slot position as Gibson. A holdover from the failed Jeff Ireland regime, Gibson will count $3.7 million versus the cap if the Fins keep him, but just $2 million if they move him. We wouldn't be shocked to see the Dolphins keep Rishard Matthews over Gibson at final cuts.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin believes Brandon Gibson (patellar tendon) has been looking healthier in practice.

"(He's starting to) remind us more of the player we saw on film last year," Philbin said Monday. Gibson has been full go in camp, and was the starting slot receiver in Friday night's preseason opener. Barring a setback, he'll be Ryan Tannehill's No. 3 receiver behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.

Brandon Gibson was the Dolphins' starting slot receiver in Friday night's preseason opener against Atlanta, catching two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown.

Gibson seems to be fully recovered from last October's patellar tendon tear. He worked inside the numbers while Rishard Matthews and Brian Hartline started outside, with Mike Wallace (hamstring) on the shelf. Gibson's big play was his six-yard touchdown catch on Miami's opening drive. With Matthews and rookie Jarvis Landry pushing for snaps, Gibson isn't on the radar in re-draft leagues.
Aug 8 - 8:42 PM

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley said the Dolphins' top three receivers are Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson, and he does not "envision that changing."

Coming off a patellar tendon tear, there was talk all offseason Gibson would cede his slot job to Rishard Matthews or rookie Jarvis Landry. Beasley does not see that scenario playing out with Gibson now healthy and working at full speed. Gibson posted a 30-326-3 line in only seven games last season.
Jul 26 - 8:53 AM

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has "no major (worries)" about Brandon Gibson's (patellar tendon) health, and believes he'll be able to go "full throttle" in the near future.

Gibson is in the final stages of his recovery, but should still be considered week to week. Gibson needs to be healthy for the preseason, where he'll attempt to hold off second-rounder Jarvis Landry for slot duties. There's a strong chance Gibson ends up settling in at No. 4 on the depth chart.
Jul 24 - 3:08 PM

Ryan Tannehill says Brandon Gibson (patellar tendon) is "moving well, but still not 100 percent."

Gibson has taken part in some team drills at spring practices, but it's a legitimate question whether he'll regain his early-2013 effectiveness. Ruptured patellar tendons are among the toughest to recover from. Gibson will have to overcome the odds to not risk losing snaps to rookie Jarvis Landry.

Brandon Gibson (knee) is participating in team drills at Dolphins minicamp.

Gibson practiced in a limited fashion at OTAs and is likely still limited some at this week's minicamp. But he remains on pace to be full-go for training camp next month. The soon-to-be 27-year-old will try to hold off rookie Jarvis Landry for slot duties between Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline, who man the outside.

Brandon Gibson (knee) is on the field and participating in Tuesday's OTAs, albeit in a limited manner.

Gibson tore his patellar tendon in October, so he's made great strides and appears to be well ahead of schedule in his recovery. It's an important summer for Gibson after the team drafted Jarvis Landry, who projects as an immediate slot receiver. 26-year-old Gibson has a real shot at being 100 percent for camp.

The Dolphins can save $1.735 million against the salary cap by releasing Brandon Gibson.

Gibson's roster spot is in danger after the Dolphins drafted WR Jarvis Landry in the second round. Landry has reliable hands and is an excellent blocker. He projects as an immediate contributor in the slot, drawing drawn Hines Ward and Anquan Boldin comparisons. Gibson is coming off a torn patellar tendon.
May 11 - 12:05 PM

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said he's been "pleased" with how Brandon Gibson (knee) has looked in the offseason conditioning program.

Gibson is seven months removed from knee surgery and could be cleared for the start of training camp. Brian Hartline (knee) and Armon Binns (torn ACL) are also participating in OTAs.
May 2 - 5:32 PM

According to the Palm Beach Post, Brandon Gibson (knee) is expected to be ready for minicamp.

Gibson is still recovering from knee surgery. While it's nice to read optimistic injury projections, we're skeptical Gibson will be ready for pre-training camp activities. In fact, we'd be surprised if he were ready for training camp at all. Gibson is coming off a patellar tendon tear and only recently resumed light jogging. His Week 1 availability isn't guaranteed.
Apr 19 - 7:14 PM

Brandon Gibson has begun "light jogging" as he rehabs from his Week 8 patellar tendon tear.

Although recent speculation has posited Gibson's roster spot is in danger, the Miami Herald doesn't believe that to be the case. Cutting Gibson would cause a $2 million salary cap penalty. It's possible, however, that Gibson won't be ready for Week 1, perhaps opening the season on the reserve/PUP list.
Apr 18 - 3:15 PM

The Palm Beach Post believes the Dolphins could consider releasing Brandon Gibson.

Gibson tore his left patellar tendon in October and is due $3.7 million in the second year of a three-year pact. The Dolphins would have to eat about $2 million to release Gibson, but they have a cheap, capable slot replacement in Rishard Matthews. Gibson should make the team as long as he's healthy.
