Dolphins' Brice Butler: Records three catches Thursday
Buter (leg) hauled in three passes for 33 yards in Thursday's preseason game against the Falcons.
Butler had been nursing a leg injury from earlier in the offseason, but he looked fully healthy during the team's preseason opener Thursday. At this point, Butler is fighting for a spot off the bench within the Dolphins' receiving corps.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Injury not serious
Coach Brian Flores indicated Butler (leg) isn't dealing with a serious injury and said the receiver could return to practice later this week, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Butler left Tuesday's practice with the injury, but it sounds like he'll be fine. When back on the field, the 29-year-old will resume his bid for depth-chart slotting behind Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Leaves practice with injury
Butler suffered a leg injury during Tuesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Butler had already been working his way back from a foot injury, but it's unclear if the one he suffered Tuesday is related in any way. The Dolphins should provide an update on Butler's status when they return to practice Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Six catches in 2018
Butler caught six of 10 targets for 60 yards and one touchdown in 2018.
Butler played two games with the Cowboys, during which time he failed to bring in his only target, before signing a two-year contract with the Dolphins. The 28-year-old will compete for a depth role in Miami this offseason and carries a cap hit of $805,000 in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Nabs first touchdown of 2018
Butler hauled in his only target for 23 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-33 win over the Patriots.
Butler made the most of his limited offensive usage during Sunday's upset victory, connecting with quarterback Ryan Tannehill on a 23-yard TD pass late in the third quarter. The veteran nonetheless played only 40 percent of Miami's offensive snaps, and remains unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance again heading into a Week 15 tilt against the Vikings. DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola remain firmly entrenched above Butler in the Dolphins' depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' Brice Butler: Nabs four passes in win
Butler caught all four of his passes for 25 yards during Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills.
Butler logged the third highest amount of snaps (34) among Miami's wide receivers during the Week 13 win. The 28-year-old will likely continue to serve as the Dolphins' No. 3 wideout as long as Danny Amendola (knee) remains sidelined. If he's able to continue developing chemistry with quarterback Ryan Tannehill, it's conceivable that Butler could secure himself a rotational role even when Amendola eventually returns to the field....

Dolphins' Brice Butler: Lands in South Beach
The Dolphins signed Butler to a contract Wednesday.
Butler gives the Dolphins needed wideout depth with DeVante Parker (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant (leg) currently hurting. Even if both receivers are unable to play coming out of the Dolphins' Week 11 bye, Butler will still be behind at least Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola in the pecking order at the position....

Brice Butler: To work out for Houston
Butler will work out for the Texans, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Texans need to add a body at wide receiver after losing Will Fuller to a season-ending ACL injury. Butler, who was released by the Cowboys a week ago, appeared in two games for Dallas, tallying a mere one target and zero catches.... See More ... See Less
Brice Butler: Not signing with Houston
Butler worked out for the Texans but will not sign with the team, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Butler appeared to be a solid candidate to land in Houston after the team lost Will Fuller to a season-ending injury, but the 28-year-old was unable to come to terms on a deal. The former Cowboys wideout will search for a depth role elsewhere in the league.... See More ... See Less
Brice Butler: Cut loose by Cowboys
The Cowboys released Butler on Monday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.
Following the Cowboys' acquisition of Amari Cooper (concussion), this is the corresponding adjustment to the 53-man roster. Butler has spent the bulk of his career in Dallas, but outside of the occasional big play he hasn't made a consistent impact.... See More ... See Less
Cowboys' Brice Butler: Practices Wednesday
Butler (groin) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Butler sat out Sunday's victory over Jacksonville with a groin injury but seems to have fully recovered. The veteran wideout appears on track to suit up for Sunday's game against Washington but is unlikely to receive substantial targets behind Allen Hurns, Michael Gallup, Cole Beasley, Tavon Austin and Deonte Thompson....

Cowboys' Brice Butler: Unavailable Sunday
Butler (groin) is active for Sunday's game versus the Jaguars, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.
Since re-signing with the Cowboys on Sept. 18, Butler has logged just one offensive snap in three chances to do so. In the fourth, he's among the team's inactives as a result of a groin injury. The wide receiving corps will include Allen Hurns, Deonte Thompson, Cole Beasley, Tavon Austin and Michael Gallup on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Cowboys' Brice Butler: Late addition to injury report
Butler is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars due to a groin injury, Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Butler was a late addition to the Cowboys' injury report as a limited participant during Friday's practice, though the groin issue may not be severe enough to keep him sidelined Sunday. Butler's potential absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the Cowboys' offense, however, as the receiver has played just one offensive snap this season.... See More ... See Less
Cowboys' Brice Butler: Re-signs with Dallas
Butler agreed to a contract Tuesday with the Cowboys, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The Cowboys already have six other healthy wideouts on the roster, so it seems likely the team will release a player from that position group in order to make room on the 53-man roster for Butler, who spent the past three seasons with the organization. Butler bolted for Arizona during the offseason on a two-year deal, but he became a roster casualty after turning in an unimpressive training camp and preseason. Butler's past experience with the Cowboys' coaching staff should help him get up to speed quickly with the playbook, but it's unlikely that he'll emerge as a consistent contributor in the team's passing attack. The 28-year-old does offer some utility as a downfield threat, however, as evidenced by an excellent 16.1 career yard-per-catch average.... See More ... See Less
Brice Butler: Could land in Dallas
The Cowboys are considering signing Butler, Bryan Broaddus of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Butler spent the offseason with the Cardinals, but was unable to crack the team's 53-man roster. The sixth-year wideout has never recorded more than 350 receiving yards in a season, but could be an intriguing option for a Cowboys' wideout core severely lacking in deep-threat playmakers. Expect more information on Dallas' interest in Butler after the team's Sunday night matchup against the Giants.... See More ... See Less
Cardinals' Brice Butler: Sees one target in preseason finale
Butler secured his only target for 19 yards during Thursday's preseason finale against the Broncos.
Neither Christian Kirk or Chad Williams saw action Thursday, making it obvious where Butler stands in the receiver pecking order in advance of Week 1. While the former Cowboy doesn't seem to be in any danger of losing his spot on the roster, Butler clearly has work to do in order to see enough playing time to warrant fantasy consideration....

Cardinals' Brice Butler: Returns from foot injury
Butler (foot) caught two of four targets for 17 yards in Sunday's preseason win over the Cowboys.
He may not have done much on the stat sheet, but Butler at least proved his health after missing some practice time with a foot injury. He'll likely enter the regular season somewhere between fourth and sixth on the depth chart at wide receiver.... See More ... See Less
