  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Will play Sunday

    Long (illness) will play Sunday against the Jets.

    Long started the week absent from practice, but after logging a limited session Thursday, he was a full participant Friday. The 2021 third-round selection would likely benefit if Adam Shaheen (knee) were to sit, but he'd still be behind at least Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe on the Dolphins' tight end positional depth chart.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Long didn't participate in Wednesday's practice session due to a non-COVID illness, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

    Long recorded his first reception of the season in Week 13 but is dealing with an illness ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Jets. Even if he's unable to suit up in Week 15, his absence wouldn't have a significant impact on Miami's offense.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: First career catch

    Long secured his only target for eight yards during Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Long began his rookie season with a significant injury suffered back in August, and it took him some time to get up to speed, but he's now been active and handled a depth role in back-to-back games. The young tight end isn't yet on the fantasy radar, as he's only seen two targets through five appearances, but in dynasty formats his development will be worth monitoring.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Healthy scratch

    Long (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Falcons.

    Long played in Week 6 against the Jaguars, but he had only one target and didn't record a single catch. He's made three appearances this season and has played just 29 snaps, so him being inactive shouldn't affect many fantasy rosters.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Inactive Week 2

    Long (coach's decision) is listed as inactive ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Bills.

    Long is a healthy scratch Sunday after Adam Shaheen was activated from the COVID-19 list this week. The rookie registered 23 total snaps (18 offensive) during his first NFL action against the Patriots in Week 1.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Looking healthy at practice

    Long (lower body) is participating in practice Thursday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

    The rookie tight end was carted off the practice field due to what seemed like a worrying lower body injury roughly two weeks ago, but he's managed to quickly return to health. Long is still visibly playing through leg pain, per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post, but it doesn't appear that the Dolphins are concerned about him aggravating any injuries. Now that he's back on the field, Long will resume competing to push Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe for rotational reps behind top tight end Mike Gesicki.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Able to take some practice reps

    Long (lower body) is participating in some team drills Tuesday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Long appears to be limited at Tuesday's practice, but it's certainly encouraging to see him handle blocking drills just over a week after he had to be carted off the field due to a lower-body injury. The Dolphins have a number of reliable tight ends atop the depth chart, namely Mike Gesicki, Adam Shaheen and Durham Smythe, so the team can take a cautious approach to Long's recovery. Still, it looks like the rookie third-round pick could have a chance at suiting up for action at some point during the preseason.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Out for Saturday

    Long (lower body) will not play Saturday against the Bears, David Furones of the Sun Sentinel reports.

    The rookie was carted off the field last Sunday and was reportedly unable to put any weight on his left leg, but he evidently avoided a significant injury and has been without a brace for most of this week. The Dolphins will obviously play it safe with their third-round pick, which means Long will wait to make his professional debut until later in the preseason.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Considered day-to-day

    Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said Wednesday that Long (lower body) is day-to-day, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Long was carted off the field Sunday with what's being described as a lower-body injury, and he was reportedly unable to put any weight on his left leg afterward. The tight end appears to have avoided a serious injury, as he was seen walking around on the sideline at Wednesday's practice without a brace or sleeve on his leg. The 2021 third-round pick will compete for a role in the Dolphins' offense behind Mike Gesicki once he's able to return to the field.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Avoids worst-case scenario

    Long (lower body) is not believed to have suffered a season-ending injury, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

    Long had to be carted off the field Sunday after suffering what appeared to be a left knee injury, but which Schad now describes as a lower-body issue. It was reported that Long was unable to put any weight on his left leg, so it will be a relief for Miami if he's indeed avoided something season-ending. Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen will handle reps behind top tight end Mike Gesicki in the meantime.

  • Dolphins' Hunter Long: Carted off field Sunday

    Long was carted off the field Sunday after suffering an apparent left knee injury, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    The report notes that the rookie tight end couldn't put any weight on his left leg after suffering the injury, so it looks like Long could miss some time. The 2021 third-round pick had been looking to carve out a role in the Dolphins' passing offense behind top option Mike Gesicki, while competing with Durham Smythe and Adam Shaheen for slotting.
