  1. Albert Wilson played the role of hero for the Miami Dolphins in their dramatic Week 6 win over the Chicago Bears, but there’s a chance we may not see another explosive play from the wide receiver this season. Wilson suffered a hip injury during Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions, and his agent Drew Rosenhaus said it is possible he could miss anywhere from a few weeks to the remainder of the year. The Bears had the Dolphins on the ropes in Week 6, but Wilson scored touchdowns of 43 and 75 yards in the fourth quarter to help force overtime. Miami then nearly gave the game away on a horrible goal line fumble, but they held on to win thanks in large part to Wilson’s impact. With Ryan Tannehill already on the shelf with a shoulder injury and Wilson now out, the injuries are piling up for the Dolphins.
  2. There’s been a lot of talk surrounding DeVante Parker recently. The former first-round pick has seemingly fallen out of favor with the Miami coaching staff, leaving him with a reduced role for the very limited time that he’s been healthy. Naturally, his name has come up in trade rumors, as the fourth-year wideout still has a ton of talent. Now there’s a lot of drama, as Parker’s agent is lashing out publicly at the team. Parker was inactive for the team’s game today, which Dolphins coach Adam Gase claimed was due to a nagging injury. Parker's agent insists that isn’t true and that his client is fully healthy. It’s pretty shocking for an agent to criticize a coach this forcefully as Parker’s agent, Jimmy Gould, repeatedly called Gase a liar and incompetent in his statement. Jackson does tweet that Parker’s agent is not demanding a trade or his release at this time. That being said, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he isn’t a Dolphin for long. He’s been connected to a few receiver-needy teams recently, and there w
  3. The agent of Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker blasted coach Adam Gase on Sunday after Parker didn’t play against the Detroit Lions. Parker has been on the injury report with a quad problem but got in a full week of practice. Despite that, he didn’t play Sunday, and his agent, Jimmy Gould, openly called Gase incompetent for failing to play him. If Parker wasn’t already done in Miami, he probably is now. His name has frequently come up in trade rumors, and it seems likely that he’ll go within the week. The absence of Miami’s starting quarterback didn’t help matters on Sunday, but Parker was apparently available but not on the field. That’s probably a bridge-burner.
  4. Brock Osweiler and the Miami Dolphins are cooking early in Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. The stopgap starter completed 10 of his first 12 passes for 95 yards, including this five-yard touchdown scoring strike to wide receiver Kenny Stills. The score brought Miami to within 10-7 midway through the second quarter. Unfortunately, that’s not the story here. Stills ran into a security guard after scoring said touchdown. While he was a bit banged up, the employee in Miami might have suffered a serious injury. Both Stills and the woman left the field for further evaluation. There’s no further updates on her condition. But it didn’t look good, at all. As noted on the broadcast, security guards are trained to have their backs to the playing field. It prevents onlookers from rushing the field itself. In a vacuum, this makes sense. It also puts them at greater risk of injury. We’re all hoping for the best here.
  5. It sounds like the Dolphins are still willing to trade wideout DeVante Parker… but it’d take a third-rounder to get him. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero tweets that the organization has told inquiring teams that it’d take at least a third-round pick to acquire the former first-rounder. That seems to be a pretty lofty asking price, perhaps indicating that the Dolphins aren’t all that serious about moving the 25-year-old. He hasn’t shown a whole lot through his first three years in league, with his 2016 performance proving to be a career-year (56 receptions, 744 receiving yards, four touchdowns). He’s struggled to stay on the field in 2018, hauling in only a pair of catches in two games. It’s unlikely the Dolphins are going to keep him around for $9MM in 2019 (per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald on Twitter), meaning interested teams probably won’t give in to Miami’s demands. While they’re not identical scenarios, the Browns gave away former first-round wideout Corey Coleman for a seventh-rounder. The Browns got
