Carroo will have a tough time earning a larger role as he enters his second season, the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins made an aggressive trade to move up and select Carroo in the third round of last year's draft, despite already having fellow wideouts Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills on the roster. Stills was entering the final year of his contract after an ugly 2015 season, but he bounced back strong in 2016 and then re-signed with the team this offseason. Carroo is coming off a debut season in which he only caught three passes on 103 snaps and was ultimately dropped to the bottom of the depth chart behind fellow rookies Rashawn Scott and Jakeem Grant. Barring an injury to one of Miami's top-3 wideouts, Carroo likely will enter training camp competing with Scott and Grant for the No. 4 job.
Carroo (coach's decision) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports. Carroo will be held to the sidelines by coach Adam Gase for the third consecutive game as he continues to struggle with earning a role in the Dolphins' offense. Jakeem Grant and Rashawn Scott will be active instead as they serve as depth options at wide receiver.
Carroo totaled three receptions for 29 yards and a touchdown during his rookie season. Taken in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft after a record-breaking tenure at Rutgets, Carroo played on less than 15 percent of the Dolphins' offensive snaps this season as his main responsibilities came on special teams. However, teammate Kenny Stills is an unrestricted free agent and may not be back in 2017. In such a scenario, Carroo could emerge as Miami's No. 3 wideout behind Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker.
Carroo (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 17 tilt versus the Patriots, the team's official site reports. Carroo unsurprisingly will take a seat once again, the Dolphins will trot out a healthy wide receiver corps for the regular-season finale.
Carroo (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's Week 16 tilt versus the Bills, the team's official site reports. With the top trio of Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker at full health, and fifth wideout Jakeem Grant active for his return capabilities, Carroo is the odd man out.
