Dolphins' River Cracraft: Logs nine catches in 2023
Cracraft secured nine of 12 targets for 121 yards and one touchdown across 10 appearances during the 2023 season.
Cracraft's depth role on offense with the Dolphins actually allowed him to set career-high marks across the board on offense, though his six special-teams snaps were a career low. Having played two consecutive seasons on one-year deals with Miami, Cracraft's familiarity with coach Mike McDaniel's offensive system means it could make sense for the Dolphins to re-sign him again in free agency. In any case, he stands to handle his usual depth role during Saturday's wild-card matchup against the Chiefs.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Inactive Sunday
Cracraft is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
With Cracraft a healthy scratch Sunday, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are in line to lead Miami's Week 16 WR corps, with Cedrick Wilson, Braxton Berrios, Robbie Chosen and Chase Claypool also on hand to mix in. In eight games thus far, Cracraft has recorded an 8/103/1 receiving line on 10 targets.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Reclaims depth role at receiver
Cracraft played 24 of the Dolphins' 61 snaps on offense and recorded two receptions for 16 yards on two targets in Sunday's 45-15 win over the Commanders.
Cracraft made his second appearance for Miami since being activated from injured reserve Nov. 14 after a seven-game absence due to a shoulder injury. The 29-year-old is valued for his skills as a blocker when he's on the field, but he doesn't project to see much involvement as a pass catcher while fellow wideouts Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are both available....

Dolphins' River Cracraft: Cleared from injury report
Cracraft (shoulder) isn't listed on the Dolphins' Week 11 injury report.
Cracraft was returned to the 53-man roster Tuesday, as his 21-day window to practice with the team after being designated to return from injured reserve was nearing an end. While practicing within that 21-day window, the wideout never managed more than limited participation, but he's apparently returned to full activity coming out of the Dolphins' Week 10 bye. With Braxton Berrios (hamstring) and Chase Claypool (knee) both uncertain to play Sunday against the Raiders, Cracraft could immediately step in as Miami's No. 3 or 4 receiver. Cracraft was valued mostly for his skills as a blocker, but he also contributed a 6-87-1 receiving line on eight targets over his first three games before landing on IR.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Returns from IR
The Dolphins activated Cracraft (shoulder) from injured reserve Tuesday.
Since Cracraft was designated for return from IR on Oct. 25, his 21-day evaluation window was coming to a close, prompting Miami to add him back to the 53-man roster. Before the Dolphins began their Week 10 bye, Cracraft had been listed as a limited participant in each of the team's Week 8 and 9 practices, an indication that he may not yet be fully recovered from the shoulder injury he suffered in late September. Miami still has six other receivers on the roster, so the team can afford to take a cautious approach with him and hold him out this Sunday against the Raiders if there's any indication he's not 100 percent....

Dolphins' River Cracraft: Not activated for Week 9
Cracraft (shoulder) was downgraded to out for Sunday's game against the Chiefs after the Dolphins didn't activate him from injured reserve Saturday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
Cracraft was designated for return from IR on Oct. 25 and took part in his second straight week of practices with the Dolphins, though he was nothing more than a limited participant Wednesday through Friday. In order for Cracraft to be eligible to play again this season, the Dolphins will have to activate him from IR and add him back to the 53-man roster following their Week 10 bye.... See More ...

Dolphins' River Cracraft: Set to practice Wednesday
Miami designated Cracraft (shoulder) for return from its injured reserve list Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports.
After spending the Dolphins' last four games on injured reserve, it now seems that Cracraft is nearing a return to action ahead of Week 8. Miami's injury reports this week will provide more information regarding his potential availability for Sunday versus New England.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Moved to injured reserve
Cracraft (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Friday.
Cracraft had already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bills, but he will miss a minimum of three additional games after being moved to injured reserve. The soonest Cracraft could be activated would be Week 8 against the Patriots.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Won't play Week 4
Cracraft (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Cracraft's absence this weekend comes as no surprise after prior reports suggested that the wide receiver could be a candidate for injured reserve. On the bright side for the Dolphins, all signs point to Jaylen Waddle (concussion) returning against the Bills after he sat out the team's 70-20 win over the Broncos in Week 3.... See More ...

Dolphins' River Cracraft: Could be headed to IR
Cracraft is expected to miss multiple games due to the shoulder injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Broncos, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Cracraft could be a candidate for injured reserve, though head coach Mike McDaniel said that the Dolphins are still taking time to assess the wideout's availability for both this Sunday's game against the Bills and beyond. For whatever length of time Cracraft is out, Braxton Berrios would likely have the No. 3 receiver role all to himself.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Could miss extended time
Cracraft (shoulder) is still undergoing tests to find out how long he could be sidelined according to head coach Mike McDaniel, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Cracraft suffered the injury in the second quarter of the Dolphins' win Sunday against the Broncos and did not return. Any potential absences moving forward would be made worse if Jaylen Waddle (concussion) were to continue to miss time, although Waddle was able to log a limited practice Friday and seems to be trending in the proper direction. Cracraft's status for Week 4 against the Bills will likely be clearer after test results are in, as well as his status in the team's practice reports in the days ahead. If he is unable to play, Robbie Chosen would likely get an opportunity with the active roster once again.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Done for Sunday's game
Cracraft (shoulder) won't return to Sunday's game against the Broncos, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
The severity of the injury Cracraft suffered in the second quarter still isn't fully known, but with the Dolphins taking a 22-point lead into halftime, the team may just be opting to play it safe with the 28-year-old receiver. He'll finish the day with one catch for 13 yards on one target.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' River Cracraft: Tending to shoulder injury
Cracraft is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Broncos after suffering a shoulder injury in the second quarter.
With Jaylen Waddle (concussion) made inactive for the Week 3 contest, Cracraft appeared headed for an increased role Sunday, but the shoulder issue may end up cutting his afternoon short. He'll likely be evaluated in the locker room during halftime before the Dolphins determine his availability for the second half. Cracraft reeled in his lone target for a 13-yard gain before departing the contest.... See More ... See Less
