Wilson is still rehabbing from his season-ending hip injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Wilson hoped to regain full health before the start of Miami's offseason program, but he'll likely be limited or absent when the team begins practicing in May. He still has plenty of time to make it back for the start of training camp in late July, at which point he'll be nine months removed from suffering a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip. The 26-year-old won't have trouble earning snaps once he's healthy, as the Dolphins haven't signed a replacement for Danny Amendola (Lions). Wilson has the most slot experience among the team's current group of wide receivers.
Wilson (hip) is expected to be healthy by the beginning of the offseason program in April, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Inked by the Dolphins to a three-year contract last March, Wilson didn't play beyond Oct. 21 due to a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip. Before the season-ending injury, he accounted for 26 catches (on 35 targets) for 391 yards and four touchdowns while mixing in a 52-yard TD pass to Jakeem Grant in seven games. As of late January, surgery officially has been ruled out as a possibility. Moreover, Wilson even charted some of his progress via Twitter, posting a brief snippet of him performing squats. With long-time quarterback Ryan Tannehill likely to be jettisoned in the offseason, Wilson should be working with a new signal-caller yet again, and his dynamic ability should help his case to be among the team's top skill-position players in 2019.
Wilson (hip) was officially placed on injured reserve Wednesday. In a corresponding move, the Dolphins added Leonte Carroo from their practice squad to provide depth at wideout for Thursday's game against the Texans. Wilson will wrap up his first season in Miami with 26 catches (on 35 targets) for 391 yards and four scores in seven games. On a fortunate note, Wilson won't require surgery to address his hip injury, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.
Wilson (hip) will not require surgery but will likely be placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The Dolphins apparently plan to allot Wilson all the time needed to make a full recovery, which is the basis for his inevitable IR stint. The fact that Wilson will avoid surgery is a good sign moving forward, suggesting the speedy wideout will return to full form by the start of the 2019 season. Miami has already designated lineman Jake Brendel and linebacker Mike Hull to return from IR, which will prevent them from being able to bring back Wilson. With Wilson no longer in the immediate mix at wideout, Miami might now enter the market for a receiver.
Coach Adam Gase said there is a high probability Wilson (hip/leg) will be placed on injured reserve, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Wilson is believed to have suffered an injury to the labrum of his hip during Sunday's 32-21 loss to Detroit. The Dolphins are bracing for news that it's a season-ending issue, but they haven't yet received confirmation. With Kenny Stills (groin) also out for Thursday's game in Houston, the team will need to turn back to DeVante Parker for a role in three-wide formations along with Danny Amendola (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant.
