A source tells the Miami Herald DeVante Parker (ankle) is feeling "much better" despite missing Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Speaking earlier Thursday, OC Clyde Christensen said the team was "holding out hope" Parker would return. Apparently it wasn't just coachspeak. The tea leaves still suggest Parker will be sitting against the Jets. If he does play, his health will make him a fantasy wild card.
Oct 19 - 7:34 PM

Jay Ajayi (knee) was held out of Thursday's practice.

It's the same routine Ajayi followed last week before being left off the final injury report. He'll be out there as a mid-range RB1 against the Jets.
Oct 19 - 1:19 PM

DeVante Parker (ankle) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

OC Clyde Christensen has already said it would take a miracle for Parker to play. He's going to miss a solid matchup with the Jets, allowing Jarvis Landry to vacuum up targets and for Kenny Stills to offer WR4 value.
Oct 19 - 1:17 PM

Dolphins OC Clyde Christensen said the team is "holding out hope" DeVante Parker (ankle) will play against the Jets.

Parker sat out Wednesday's practice, and Christensen seems to be more wishing than predicting the receiver will be able to play this week. In fact, the coordinator said the team is game-planning as if Parker will not be available. As of now, he should be considered doubtful to face the Jets.

DeVante Parker (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Coach Adam Gase said earlier Wednesday that Parker remains day to day. We're going to need to see Parker out there Thursday or Friday if he's going to play Sunday against the Jets. For now, consider Parker questionable.
Oct 18 - 1:24 PM

Coach Adam Gase said DeVante Parker (ankle) remains day to day.

"Hard to anticipate anything," Gase said. Parker didn't practice at all last week and missed the Week 6 date with the Falcons. It'll be important to track his practice progress this week ahead of a home game with the Jets.
Oct 18 - 12:13 PM

Leonte Carroo caught 0-of-3 targets in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over Atlanta.

Carroo was announced as a "starter" opposite Jarvis Landry, but predictably proceeded to watch Landry vacuum up every last target. Neither Carroo nor Jakeem Grant will be on the Week 7 radar if DeVante Parker remains sidelined.
Oct 15 - 5:27 PM

Kenny Stills caught 4-of-4 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Stills' touchdown, 11 yards, was unusually short by his standards. With DeVante Parker sidelined, the yardage was Stills' second most of the season. He will be in the WR4 conversation for Week 7 against the Jets if Parker remains on the shelf.
Oct 15 - 5:19 PM

Julius Thomas caught 3-of-5 targets for 22 yards in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

It's essentially the same game Thomas has had every week as a Dolphin. He's barely on the TE2 radar.
Oct 15 - 5:07 PM

Jarvis Landry caught 8-of-14 targets for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Dolphins' Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Landry vacuumed up nearly half of Jay Cutler's attempts. He could have had a bigger day, but committed three drops. Nevertheless, Landry nearly single-handedly kept the Dolphins' passing "attack" afloat, churning out yards after the catch. He made a number of daring grabs in tight quarters. He has 38 catches through five games, and a solid Week 7 matchup in the Jets.
Oct 15 - 4:26 PM

Jay Cutler completed 19-of-33 passes for 151 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the Dolphins' 20-17, Week 6 win over the Falcons.

Cutler was by no means good, but he was just good enough in the second half to keep his job another week. Cutler was lucky to escape with only one interception. Routinely pushed back by collapsing pockets, Cutler made a habit of trying to throw lasers off his back foot. It worked, sometimes. Jarvis Landry kept the passing game moving with running back-like YAC work. In his defense, Cutler was hurt by an unusual number of drops. He'll remain a bottom-barrel QB2 for Week 7 against the Jets.
Oct 15 - 4:17 PM

Jay Ajayi rushed 26 times for 130 yards in the Dolphins' Week 6 upset of the Falcons.

Ajayi was targeted three times in the passing game, but committed two drops. That was his lone lowlight, as he otherwise put the Dolphins' offense on his back as Adam Gase's team sprung a stunning road upset. Ajayi was routinely pushing the pile at the second level. The impressive effort came on an afternoon where the Dolphins lost C Mike Pouncey (concussion) in the second quarter. Ajayi has now gone over 25 carries in 3-of-5 games. He gets the Jets at home in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 4:04 PM

Dolphins C Mike Pouncey was forced from Sunday's game against the Falcons with a concussion, and will not return.

Pouncey went down on the final drive of the first half, and was ruled out after halftime. Second-year UDFA is now in the game at the pivot. This is Pouncey's first documented concussion as a pro.
Oct 15 - 3:03 PM

Leonte Carroo was announced as the Dolphins' starting wideout opposite Jarvis Landry in place of DeVante Parker (ankle).

Jakeem Grant struggled when given the opportunity to play in Parker's place last week. Carroo has shown no tangible on-field rapport with Jay Cutler, while Atlanta's perimeter corners don't pose an easy matchup. Landry should eat targets.
Oct 15 - 11:55 AM

DeVante Parker (ankle) is inactive for Week 6 against the Falcons.

Parker didn't seem particularly close to playing this week, putting him in doubt for Week 7. Also inactive for the Dolphins are S Maurice Smith, CB Torry McTyer, CB Byron Maxwell, LB Stephone Anthony, OG Isaac Asiata and OT Sam Young.
