Cameron (concussion) did not practice Thursday, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Nor did Dion Sims, which sets the stage for fellow tight ends MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones to fill in Sunday against the Bills in the event that both Cameron and Sims end up ruled out, which is a plausible scenario.
Cameron (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.
The same applies to Dion Sims, and if things don't look up for the duo by the end of the week, fellow tight ends MarQueis Gray and Dominique Jones would be called upon to step up in the Miami offense Sunday against the Bills.
Cameron (concussion) is not expected to play Sunday against the Steelers, the Miami Herald reports.
Cameron, who did not practice Wednesday, is thus poised to miss his third game in a row, with the report adding that there is organizational concern that Cameron "could be out an extended period as he mulls his NFL future." In Cameron's absence, Dion Sims has started at tight end for the Dolphins. with Marqueis Gray and Dominique Jones also in the mix to a lesser degree.
In a league plagued by brain-injury concerns, Cameron is one of the most alarming cases, having been diagnosed with four concussions over the last four years. Head coach Adam Gase said there's no timetable for the veteran's return, and the team's decision to sign TE Dominique Jones on Monday suggests Cameron doesn't have a great shot to play in Sunday's game against the Titans. This is a case in which everyone, including both player and team, seems to be far more worried about long-term health concerns than the immediate football impact. However, recovery from concussion is highly variable, so it isn't out of the question that Cameron could be back soon. In the meantime, Dion Sims will continue to serve as Miami's top tight end.
