  1. Over the weekend, DeVante Parker‘s agent lashed out at the Dolphins and accused coach Adam Gase of lying about his client’s health. Now, the wide receiver is distancing himself from his agent’s comments, as Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets. Parker claims that he did not know Jimmy Gould would make those remarks, which included accusations of “incompetence.” For his part, Parker says that he has a good relationship with Gase, and doesn’t believe that things will be awkward between them. With the trade deadline roughly one week away, Parker will be a name to monitor. Before the Cowboys shipped a first-round pick to the Raiders for Amari Cooper, they were reportedly “monitoring” the 25-year-old receiver. The Dolphins are said to be seeking for a third round pick to part with Parker, though Gould’s comments could compel the Fins to lower their asking price. On the flipside, the Dolphins may have reason to keep Parker in the wake of injuries to Albert Wilson and Kenny Stills. It’s admittedly hard to see t
  2. The Miami Dolphins will once again roll with Brock Osweiler under center as Ryan Tannehill remains out with an injury to his throwing shoulder. Tannehill hasn’t played since the first weekend of October, when he threw a touchdowns and two interceptions in a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. In his stead, Osweiler has completed 67.5 percent of his passes for 654 yards with six touchdowns and two interceptions. The Dolphins are 1-1 in the two games Osweiler started. The Dolphins reportedly aren’t looking into surgery as an option for Tannehill at this time.
  3. Dolphins wide receiver Kenny Stills suffered a groin strain in Week 7 and is likely to miss Thursday night’s game against the Texans, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Miami can ill-afford to lose another wideout, as Albert Wilson is expected to miss multiple weeks after injuring his hip against the Lions. Wilson, for his part, will visit a specialist in order to get a timeline on his labrum issue, tweets Rapoport, but agent Drew Rosenhaus has already called a multi-week absence the “best case scenario” for Wilson, and he could potentially miss the rest of the season. With Stills and Wilson sidelined, the Dolphins are down to just three receivers: Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant and DeVante Parker, the latter of whom was inactive with a nagging injury on Sunday. Parker’s agent has since lashed out at the Dolphins and head coach Adam Gase for their handling of Parker, and the former first-round pick has also been involved in trade rumors. But Miami’s dire situation at receiver may force the club to deploy Pa
  4. The Miami Dolphins are facing a real wide receiver crisis with Kenny Stills reportedly sustaining a groin strain. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Stills strained his groin late in Sunday’s loss to the Detroit Lions. While not a hugely severe injury, it is significant enough that the Dolphins, who have a short week and play Thursday against the Houston Texans, face a real uphill battle to have him ready for that game. Without Stills, Miami is down to three healthy receivers. Danny Amendola and Jakeem Grant are the prominent ones, but the third is DeVante Parker, the subject of trade rumors and a player whose agent just put the organization on blast publicly. That’s an awkward situation, and the Dolphins find themselves in a very tight spot at the position right now.
  5. Dolphins wideout Albert Wilson suffered a hip injury Sunday that is expected to sideline him for multiple weeks, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Wilson will undergo further testing on Monday, but agent Drew Rosenhaus says a multi-week absence is a “best-case scenario,” according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link), who adds Wilson is dealing with a labral issue that could knock him out for the rest of the season. Wilson, 26, inked a three-year, $24M deal with Miami earlier this year, coming over from the Chiefs after four seasons in Kansas City. Through seven games, Wilson has posted 26 receptions on 35 targets, managing 391 yards and four touchdowns in total. Wilson, who has handled two touchdown receptions of at least 70 yards, also tossed a 52-yard touchdown pass to Jakeem Grant against the Raiders earlier this year. The Dolphins have already been forced to turn to backup quarterback Brock Osweiler while Ryan Tannehill deals with injury, and they’ll now need to dip into their wide rece
