Dion Sims caught 3-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Dolphins' Week 11 win over the Rams.

Sims returned from his concussion last week, but he has just these three catches to show for his past two games. Sims plays every snap, but he's asked to block quite a bit. He won't be a streaming option in Week 12 against the 49ers.

Dion Sims (concussion) is out for Week 9 against the Jets.

It's a surprising development considering that Sims has been a full participant at practice this week. It was reported earlier that Sims had passed the league's concussion protocol, but apparently that hasn't happened yet. With Jordan Cameron also out with a concussion, the Dolphins are as thin at tight end as any team in the league.

Dolphins TE Dion Sims is week to week with a concussion.

With Jordan Cameron also sidelined with a concussion, the Dolphins are down each of their top two tight ends. Dominique Jones and MarQueis Gray are next up on the depth chart, but a signing will be necessary.
Oct 17 - 1:55 PM

Dion Sims caught 1-of-2 targets for nine yards in Miami's Week 4 loss to the Bengals.

Sims is expected to be fine for Thursday's game against the Bengals. He has some TE2 appeal with Jordan Cameron (concussion) sidelined.
Sep 27 - 4:17 PM

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.

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

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.
