Date:

Dion Sims (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in the Dolphins' Monday practice.

Sims played almost every snap in Miami's Week 3 loss to Cleveland after Jordan Cameron went out with an early-game concussion. Sims' ankle injury likely isn't severe. He will be on the streamer radar for Week 4 against the Bengals.
Sep 26 - 4:36 PM

Dolphins TE Dion Sims caught 4-of-4 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown in Miami's Week 6 win over Tennessee.

Back from his early-season concussion, Sims made an impact in the red zone and as a lead blocker in front of the Dolphins' tailbacks at times. Although Sims currently carries no standalone fantasy value, he would become a viable streamer option should something happen to Jordan Cameron.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims (concussion) is expected to return in Week 6.

Sims is Miami's best blocking tight end, so his return should be a boost for the running game. Sims missed three of the Dolphins' first four games.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims (concussion) is listed as doubtful for Week 3.

The Fins will turn to Jake Stoneburner as banged-up Jordan Cameron's (groin) backup against the Bills. This will be Sims' second straight missed game.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims (concussion) has been medically cleared.

He returned to a "limited" practice Wednesday and is on track to play against the Bills. Sims is the Dolphins' No. 2 tight end, but would become their starter if Jordan Cameron (groin) can't go, likely rotating with Jake Stoneburner.

Dolphins declared TE Dion Sims, CB Will Davis, CB Tony Lippett, G/T Jeff Linkenbach, DT A.J. Francis, G Billy Turner and WR Matt Hazel inactive for Week 2 against the Jaguars.

No big surprises here. Sims was ruled out with a concussion earlier this week. We doubt Sims was in your Week 2 plans anyway. He caught just 24 passes last year.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 2.

Sims is primarily an in-line blocking tight end in Miami's offense.
Fri, Sep 18, 2015 01:33:00 PM

Dolphins TE Dion Sims suffered a concussion in Miami's Week 1 game against the Redskins, and will not return.

Stretching for an overthrown Ryan Tannehill pass in the end zone, Sims landed on his head in sickening fashion. He appeared to be out cold before being helped to the sideline. He was then carted to the locker room. It's doubtful Sims is ready for Week 2.

Coach Joe Philbin views Dion Sims as a starting-caliber tight end.

"He can do a lot of different jobs; is coming along nicely," Philbin said. Jordan Cameron remains the No. 1 tight end, but could lose work to Sims on run downs. Coming off his disappointing 2014, Cameron has done nothing this preseason, catching two passes for six yards.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims secured 2-of-4 targets for 15 yards in Miami's Week 17 loss to the Jets.

Sims finishes his second NFL season with 24 catches, 284 yards, and a pair of TDs. He flashed quality starting-caliber ability in spot starts when Charles Clay battled a knee injury this year. Also a plus blocker, Sims is one of the NFL's top No. 2 tight ends. With Clay headed for offseason free agency, Sims could be a sneaky low-end TE1 in 2015 if Clay is allowed to walk.

Dion Sims secured 3-of-3 targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 16 win over the Vikings.

Sims is playing behind Charles Clay again, but "vultured" Clay with a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter. A very useful second tight end, Sims has earned an every-week role in the Dolphins' offense, even if he plays limited snaps. He also is a proficient run blocker, and better there than Clay.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 05:40:00 PM

Dion Sims caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in Miami's Week 14 loss to the Ravens.

Sims drew as many looks as Charles Clay. Sims has become a bigger part of the Dolphins' offense in recent weeks, but is still barely on the TE2 radar as a fantasy option.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 06:05:00 PM

Dion Sims caught four passes for 58 yards in the Dolphins' Week 13 win over the Jets.

Sims got a second consecutive start in place of injured Charles Clay. He reeled in all four of his targets, and had a couple big grabs on the game-winning field-goal drive in the fourth quarter. Sims is more blocker than receiver, but he's capable of catching whatever comes his way and moving the sticks. Sims won't be on the radar next week against the Ravens, even if Clay doesn't return.
Tue, Dec 2, 2014 12:24:00 AM

Dolphins declared TE Dion Sims, DB Lowell Rose, LB Chris McCain, LG Daryn Colledge, OT Jason Fox, DT Anthony Johnson, and OG Billy Turner inactive for Week 9 vs. the Chargers.

Sims is in a walking boot with a toe injury. Colledge has a back injury to go with an illness, and will be replaced in the starting lineup by Dallas Thomas.
