Cameron, an unrestricted free agent, appeared in just three games this past season due to concussion issues and is known to be considering retirement. When healthy, he averaged just 23.5 receiving yards per game the last two years and found the end zone only four times across 19 appearances. With Dion Sims set to hit the open market as well, MarQueis Gray currently sits atop the Dolphins tight end depth chart.
Cameron was placed on injured reserve over the weekend in the wake of his continued absence since a Week 3 concussion, which marked his fourth in four years. Although he wants to continue his career going forward, Cameron's history of concussions could impact the level of interest he garners in free agency this upcoming offseason.
Cameron (concussion) was placed on the injured reserve list Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Cameron, who suffered his fourth concussion in the past four years during a Week 3 win over the Browns, will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2016 season. The former fourth-round pick's time in Miami appears to be over as he sits in the final year of his contract, while he may consider retirement in order to preserve long-term health. MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones will serve as the primary options at tight end in the meantime.
Cameron (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Jets, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Cameron's fifth straight absence due to his latest concussion coincides with Dion Sims (concussion) being ruled of Sunday's contest as well, leaving MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones as the Dolphins' lone options at tight end.
Cameron (concussion) is expected to miss Sunday's game against the Jets, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Assuming he is officially ruled out Friday, which is where this situation is evidently heading, this would mark the fifth consecutive game Cameron misses. On the plus side, fellow TE Dion Sims is expected to return to action Sunday after a one-game absence.
