ESPN Dolphins reporter James Walker says Charles Clay (knee) looks "far from being 100 percent."

Clay has just nine catches for 58 yards through two games, struggling to separate or do anything after the catch. He's still fighting a knee injury he sustained way back in a team scrimmage over the summer. Walker suggests that Clay has been playing hurt in an effort to help his team, but that's not going to help his box score.

Charles Clay (knee) is listed as questionable for Week 3.

It's a downgrade from last week, when Clay was listed as probable. Clay practiced on a limited basis throughout the week and should continue to play through his knee injury. He'll be a low-end TE1 against the Chiefs.
Sep 19 - 6:08 PM

Charles Clay (knee) remained limited on Thursday.

The Dolphins have adopted a Patriots-esque strategy with Clay's injury-report statuses, "limiting" him every day the past two weeks. He's in zero danger of missing Week 3, and remains a borderline TE1.
Sep 18 - 5:20 PM

Charles Clay (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Clay is still not completely over his knee issue, but his status for Week 3 isn't in doubt. He'll be on the TE1 borderline against the Chiefs.
Sep 17 - 6:15 PM

Charles Clay had seven catches for 31 yards in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Buffalo.

Clay led Miami in receptions and tied for a team-high eight targets. He didn't make his first catch until the third quarter, and was in and out of the game due to his knee injury. Clay will remain on the TE1 borderline for Week 3 against the Chiefs.
Sep 14 - 6:30 PM

Sep 11 - 5:52 PM

Charles Clay (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Clay missed the majority of the preseason with knee issues. The Dolphins are limiting him for precautionary reasons. Clay will be a borderline TE1 for Sunday's matchup with Buffalo.
Sep 10 - 5:50 PM

Charles Clay caught 2-of-6 targets for 27 yards in the Dolphins' Week 1 win over the Patriots.

Clay's looks were second only to Mike Wallace's 11, he just couldn't do much with them. Clay's box-score inconsistency will keep him on the TE1 borderline going forward.
Sep 7 - 7:09 PM

Charles Clay is not listed on Miami's Week 1 injury report.

Clay dealt with a knee issue throughout the preseason, but didn't miss any practice time this week. He's Rotoworld's No. 14 tight end for Sunday's matchup with New England.

Clay is fully expected to suit up for Sunday's opener, where he'll be a borderline TE1 against the Patriots.
Sep 4 - 4:42 PM

Charles Clay (knee) was limited in Dolphins practice Wednesday.

Clay has been nursing the knee issue for the past month-plus. The Dolphins are just taking it easy on their Swiss-army knife of a tight end. Clay is expected to be a focal point for the Patriots' defense. He's a TE2 this week.
Sep 3 - 5:42 PM

CSN New England expects the Patriots to use OLB Jamie Collins and CB Darrelle Revis on Charles Clay in Sunday's Week 1 opener.

Clay will also see a lot of slot CB Kyle Arrington. But the Patriots know how dangerous Clay can be, and they game-planned to stop him last season by sticking Aqib Talib on him in Week 15. Clay caught one pass for six yards. Collins is an athletic freak, and we'd expect him to cover Clay most of the time when Revis is trailing Mike Wallace. Clay is more TE2 than low-end TE1 this week.
Sep 3 - 2:03 PM

Dolphins TE Charles Clay (knee) caught one pass for 18 yards in his first action this preseason Saturday night.

Clay made a nice catch-and-run play on a crossing route during the Dolphins' first drive, and was not seen much after that. Clay looked healthy, and should be good to go Week 1. He is a low-end TE1.
