Raiders RB Kory Sheets tweeted he is out for the season after tearing his Achilles' in Friday night's third preseason game.
This is the second Achilles' tear of Sheets' NFL career. A 2009 UDFA out of Purdue, Sheets spent the last two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL. Sheets will likely be stashed on injured reserve or released with an injury settlement. Already 29, this could be the end of the road for Sheets. Sat, Aug 23, 2014 09:38:00 AM

Raiders signed RB Kory Sheets.

Sheets, 29 next month, was signed as an UDFA out of Purdue in 2009 by the 49ers and made his NFL debut with the Dolphins in October of the same year. He's spent the past two seasons in the CFL with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, rushing for 2,875 yards and 23 touchdowns on 516 carries. Sheets led Saskatchewan to a Grey Cup title in November and earned MVP honors.

The Raiders worked out free agent RB Kory Sheets in late January.

Sheets also got a workout with the Colts in December, so he remains on the NFL's radar. Turning 28 in May, Sheets went undrafted out of Purdue in 2009, before briefly spending time with the 49ers and Dolphins. Sheets earned MVP of Canadian Football's Grey Cup with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, rushing for 197 yards on 20 carries in a CFL title win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Free agent RB Kory Sheets will work out for the Colts.

The Colts are kicking the tires on possible running back additions for next season. Sheets was the MVP of the CFL's Grey Cup this year while playing for the Saskatchewan Roughriders. On the season, he rushed 287 times for 1,598 yards. The former 49er and Dolphin hits the open market on Feb. 15.

Former Dolphins RB Kory Sheets has signed with the CFL's Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Oddly a 2011 media favorite in Miami, Sheets didn't even make it to final cuts with the Dolphins last season. The 27-year-old has two career NFL appearances.
Fri, Feb 10, 2012 01:52:00 PM

Dolphins released RB/KR Kory Sheets.

Sheets blew out his Achilles' tendon a little over a year ago. It's unlikely that he has regained his speed. Sheets was behind Lex Hilliard for the No. 3 running back job.

Dolphins RB Kory Sheets (Achilles) promises to "surprise people" when he takes this field this summer.

"I have everything Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams had but more speed — 4.3 speed," boasted Sheets. While the Miami media appears to be buying Sheets' bravado this offseason, we remain skeptical that he'll even make the team. He was a fringe roster player even before a career-threatening Achilles tear.
Tue, Jun 14, 2011 09:37:00 PM

Dolphins RB Kory Sheets has finished with his rehab after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon last summer.

Considering the history of NFL running backs returning from Achilles injuries, it's a long shot that he'll ever recapture pre-injury form. Sheets is optimistic about his chances this year in a backfield with plenty of offseason vacancies, but he's facing an uphill climb just to make the final roster.
Thu, Jun 9, 2011 08:31:00 PM

Dolphins waived/injured RB/KR Kory Sheets.

He'll pass through waivers and go on injured reserve. Sheets, who tore his Achilles' tendon on the morning of August 4, won't necessarily be brought back for the 2011 offseason. He was buried on Miami's tailback depth chart.
Wed, Aug 4, 2010 09:06:00 PM

Dolphins RB Kory Sheets is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles' tendon in Wednesday morning's practice.

Unfortunately, it's going to be a career-threatening injury for Sheets. He was already a longshot for a roster spot behind Lex Hilliard and Patrick Cobbs this summer. The Dolphins will end up releasing him with an injury settlement.
Wed, Aug 4, 2010 12:37:00 PM

Dolphins RB Kory Sheets acknowledged that the best way for him to make the roster is as a kick returner.

Sheets is a long shot to pass Lex Hilliard for the No. 4 running back job, so he's focusing on the wide open return gig. "That's the job I want because I figure it's the quickest way to get on the field and make an impact," he said.
Wed, Jul 21, 2010 08:41:00 AM

Kory Sheets is putting heat on Lex Hilliard for the No. 4 RB job.

Sheets is a kickoff return candidate, something the Dolphins may need with No. 3 RB Patrick Cobbs coming off an ACL tear and Ted Ginn in San Francisco. Hilliard is the superior running back.
Wed, Jun 23, 2010 08:49:00 AM

Dolphins declared RB Kory Sheets, QB Tyler Thigpen, WR Patrick Turner, DE Ikaika Alama-Francis, CB Evan Oglesby, OL Andrew Hartline, G Andrew Gardner and DE Lionel Dotson inactive for Week 15 against the Titans.

Miami C Jake Grove (ankle) is back in the starting lineup for the Dolphins and Nate Garner will start at right guard over Donald Thomas.
Sun, Dec 20, 2009 12:00:00 PM

Dolphins declared RB Kory Sheets, WR Patrick Turner, C Jake Grove, third QB Tyler Thigpen, LB Erik Walden, DE Lionel Dotson, DE Ikaika Alama-Francis, and OT Lydon Murtha inactive for Week 12.

Dolphins RG Justin Smiley (shoulder) is active, but will play in a reserve role behind Nate Garner. Joe Berger gets the start in place of Grove.
Sun, Nov 29, 2009 12:03:00 PM

Dolphins declared RB Kory Sheets, QB Tyler Thigpen, OT Andrew Gardner, DE Lionel Dotson, WR Pat Turner, TE John Nalbone, LB Quentin Moses, and OT Lydon Murtha inactive for Week 7 against the Saints.

Sheets was believed to be Ted Ginn's primary competition for kickoff return duties, so Ginn will likely take over on Sunday.
