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.

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.

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.
Apr 9 - 2:59 PM

Dolphins placed WR Brandon Gibson on injured reserve with a torn left patellar tendon, ending his season.

It's a tough blow for a player who had missed just three games since 2009. Gibson is staring at a lengthy rehab, but could be ready for next summer's training camp. Gibson has no guaranteed money remaining on his three-year, $9.755 million contract, but is signed through 2015. Still only 26, he should be back as Miami's No. 3 receiver as long as he can get healthy.
Tue, Oct 29, 2013 02:30:00 PM's Ian Rapoport confirms Brandon Gibson is done for the season with a torn patellar tendon, and will undergo surgery on Monday.

It's rotten news for a player who was on pace for a career year. Patellar tendon tears are serious business, but for now it should be assumed that Gibson has enough time to get healthy for next summer's camp. An official timeline will likely emerge in the next month or two. Still only 26, Gibson is signed through 2015. Rishard Matthews is the favorite to take Gibson's place in three-receiver sets.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports Brandon Gibson is likely done for the season with a torn patellar tendon.

This is the "initial fear," per Breer, with an MRI forthcoming. The Dolphins' doctors on the sideline believed Gibson immediately showed signs of the patellar tendon tear following his first-quarter injury. Gibson had been coming on as a slot receiver with three touchdowns over his last two games. It's a blow to Ryan Tannehill, as his three-wideout package has now been weakened.

Brandon Gibson injured his left knee in the first quarter of Week 8 against the Patriots and is doubtful to return.

Gibson scored a four-yard touchdown on Miami's second offensive drive. He went down on the third possession and had to be carted to the locker room. The Dolphins will move forward with Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline in two-receiver sets. Rishard Matthews will probably become the No. 3 wideout now.

Brandon Gibson exited Sunday's Week 8 game with a first-quarter left knee injury.

He appeared to be in a lot of pain following the injury, though his return chances are uncertain. Gibson caught a four-yard touchdown to kick off Sunday's scoring.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 01:31:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (shoulder) is listed as probable for Week 8.

Gibson was limited in practice this week, but he'll be in the lineup Sunday against the Patriots. He's a WR4 at best in fantasy football leagues.
Fri, Oct 25, 2013 03:57:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday.

Gibson has been on the injury report with various ailments this season, but has yet to miss a game. The WR4 should be ready to roll against the Patriots.
Thu, Oct 24, 2013 06:13:00 PM

Brandon Gibson (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Gibson may have injured his shoulder on his Superman-style touchdown against the Bills last Sunday. He scored twice against Buffalo but isn't much of a fantasy factor outside of deeper PPR leagues. Gibson is Miami's slot receiver.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 06:35:00 PM

Brandon Gibson caught five balls for 40 yards and two touchdowns in the Dolphins' Week 7 loss to the Bills.

Gibson entered the game listed as questionable with a hip injury. He emerged from the defeat with his first two touchdowns as a Dolphin. Although Gibson has proved a solid offseason addition by Miami GM Jeff Ireland, he's not much of a fantasy football factor. The Dolphins face the Patriots in Week 8.
Sun, Oct 20, 2013 05:49:00 PM

Dolphins WR Brandon Gibson (hip) is listed as questionable for Week 7, but is tentatively expected to play.

Miami Herald reporter Armando Salguero expects Gibson to play "barring an unexpected setback." The Dolphins square off with the Bills on Sunday. Slot man Gibson isn't worth rostering in 12- or 14-team fantasy leagues.
Fri, Oct 18, 2013 02:57:00 PM

Brandon Gibson caught four passes for 74 yards in Sunday's Week 5 loss to Baltimore.

Gibson played the slot in all three-wide sets and was used in the short passing game. He had just two targets in the first half, but did the majority of his damage on a 46-yard catch late in the fourth quarter that set up a potential game-tying field goal. Gibson is being used as a strict possession receiver and has yet to find the end-zone this season. He's the No. 3 option in the passing game behind Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline.

Brandon Gibson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Week 5 against Baltimore.

Gibson was limited in practices throughout the week. Miami's slot receiver, Gibson hasn't found pay dirt on the season and is off the re-draft radar.
