Dolphins' DeVante Parker: Limited to start week

Parker (finger) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Parker managed one limited practice last week and was listed as doubtful heading into the weekend before being ruled out for the Dolphins' season-opening win over the Titans. He seems to be headed for a "questionable" tag in Week 2 at the very least, though he did wear a protective mitt over his fractured finger during Wednesday's practice. Parker still needs to prove he can consistently catch passes, and there may also be some concerns about conditioning and/or the possibility of making his injury worse, per Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. Given his spotty track record of production when healthy along with the solid depth of Miami's wideout corps, Parker will be a tough man to trust even if he ends up playing Sunday against the Jets.
