Parker likely will miss a few weeks, but the AC joint sprain in his left shoulder isn't expected to be season-ending, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Forced from Sunday's eventual loss in Green Bay with a shoulder injury, Parker later left the locker room with his left arm in a sling. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reported Parker will avoid surgery, but it appears the wideout will be sidelined beyond the Dolphins' next game Nov. 25 at Indianapolis following a Week 11 bye. In the meantime, Parker's increased workload of late (22 targets over the last three contests) will be available to the likes of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant (leg).
Parker (shoulder) will not require surgery and is considered week-to-week with a sprained AC joint, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. This is arguably one of the better scenarios the Dolphins could've asked for after Parker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to Green Bay with a shoulder injury and subsequently spotted after the game sporting a sling on his left arm. While it isn't clear how much time Parker may need to recover, it's possible he won't have to miss a game with Miami on bye Week 11. However, if Parker isn't able to play in time for the Dolphins' Week 12 bout with the Colts, Miami may need to lean heavily on Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola to fuel its passing game.
Parker (shoulder) left the locker room with his left arm in a sling after Sunday's 31-12 loss to Green Bay, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Parker was awfully busy prior to his third-quarter exit, catching five of 11 targets for 43 yards. With Jakeem Grant (leg) also removed from the game early, Leonte Carroo joined Danny Amendola and Kenny Stills in three-wide formations down the stretch. A Week 11 bye is good news for the ailing Dolphins, though it's far from a guarantee quarterback Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will be ready for Week 12 at Indianapolis. In the meantime, Parker will have an MRI on his shoulder Monday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Parker was forced out of Sunday's game against the Packers with a shoulder injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins' depth at wideout was further taxed by the fact that Jakeem Grant was carted off the field Sunday with a leg injury. Prior to his third-quarter exit from the contest, Parker had hauled in five of his 11 targets for 43 yards.
Parker brought in one of two targets for eight yards during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets. Parker continues to build upon a tradition of frustrating fantasy owners, posting only eight yards after a Week 8 breakout game in which he logged six catches on nine targets for 134 yards. Quarterback Brock Osweiler threw for only 139 yards without a touchdown during Sunday's loss, so Parker didn't have much of an opportunity to put up numbers. Miami's air attack should see a more positive gamescript during Sunday's game against the Packers, but Parker remains difficult to trust in all fantasy formats.
