Walford (personal) won't travel with the team for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Walford is tending to a family illness, according to Salguero. The 28-year-old tight end was mainly deployed in a run-blocking role, as he only caught four passes for 57 yards over seven games this year.
Walford (coach's decision) is officially inactive for Sunday's game against the Browns. Walford has suited up in the last three games for the Dolphins, logging 23 total snaps and making one catch for eight yards. In his stead, tight end duties will be handled by Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe and Chandler Cox.
Walford (leg) signed with the Dolphins on Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Walford signed with the Dolphins in March and stuck with the time through the entire offseason and preseason, but he was cut with an injury settlement in August. The 28-year-old is healthy now, however, and he'll add depth to the Dolphins tight-end corps.
The Dolphins waived Walford (leg) with an injury settlement Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports. Walford appears to be nursing an undisclosed right leg injury and is sporting a walking boot. The fourth-year pro was an odd man out in Miami's crowded tight end room, and will look for an opportunity elsewhere in the league when back to full health.
Walford (undisclosed) brought in both of his targets for 34 yards in Thursday's preseason contest against the Falcons. Walford appears to have fully recovered from the undisclosed injury that kept him from practicing recently, and he performed when called upon in Miami's preseason opener. The fourth-year tight end could see some work as a pass catcher in 2019 but is unlikely to operate in anything more than a depth capacity.
