Spencer Paysinger (neck) returned to game action Sunday with two tackles in a loss to the Jets.
Paysinger had missed two games due to the injury but was deemed healthy enough to return Sunday. After getting demolished by the Jets perhaps he wishes he was held out another week.
Spencer Paysinger (neck) practiced Wednesday, reports Miami Herald.
The Miami Dolphins are thin at linebacker at this moment with just about every starter dealing with one injury or another so the return of Paysinger was a welcome sight at practice.
Spencer Paysinger (neck) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Paysinger didn't travel with the Miami Dolphins to Philadelphia on Saturday, so it's clear the 27-year-old wasn't going to be able to suit up. The Oregon alum had mainly contributed on special teams so his absence likely won't hurt IDP owners in any way.
In addition to linebacker duties, Paysinger has been a special teams contributor throughout his four years with the Giants. In his career, he's totaled 140 tackles and one sack. He's hoping to earn a starter's role with the Dolphins.
"Every linebacker that plays in the NFL wants to be a starter, but I'm not here trying to undercut anybody or try to throw anybody under the bus," Paysinger said, via the team's website. "I want to come here and play the opportunity that's been provided to me."
Free agent linebacker
Paysinger, 26, played with the Giants from 2011-2014. He has 125 career tackles and one interception. He played 15 games for New York last season and totaled 15 tackles.
