  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Inactive Sunday

    Ezukanma (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against Minnesota.

    Although Ezukanma returned to practice Friday after sustaining an eye injury, he won't take the field due to the coach's decision. This will be his sixth consecutive game being a healthy scratch this season.

  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Sustains eye injury

    Ezukanma was a limited participant with an eye injury during practice Thursday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

    Ezukanma appears to have picked up an eye injury at some point this week after clearing Wednesday's practice report. While the exact nature and severity of this issue are still unclear, it will leave his availability moving forward up in the air. Ezukanma has been a healthy scratch over the first five games of his rookie season.

  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Will not play Sunday

    Ezukanma (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Buccaneers.

    Ezukanma impressed in camp, but the fourth-round selected rookie will remain inactive again in Week 2. He'll continue to try and work his way up the team's depth chart and suit up in Week 3, when the Dolphins host the Bills.

  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Solidified on 53-man roster

    Ezukanma was included on Miami's initial 53-man roster Tuesday, while fellow wideouts Preston Williams and Lynn Bowden were both cut.

    Ezukanma put together an impressive preseason with the Dolphins, one highlighted by a 114-yard receiving game against the Eagles in the second week. His inclusion on the roster thus comes as no big surprising, and with Williams and Bowden cut loose, Miami is currently only carrying five wideouts heading into Week 1. Trent Sherfield currently looks like Ezukanma's only competition for the No. 4 wideout gig behind Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle (lower body) and Cedrick Wilson.

  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Making waves at camp

    Ezukanma has impressed coach Mike McDaniel with a strong start to training camp, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

    "I've been very encouraged with how (Ezukanma has) handled himself and corrected things," McDaniel said. "The mistakes are changing, they're not the same ones and that's what you want." Ezukanma reportedly has been the most impressive receiver at training camp other than Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, and Oyefusi even speculates that the rookie fourth-rounder's emergence has put Preston Williams and Lynn Bowden on the roster bubble. If he can keep up this momentum, Ezukanma could make a push to open the season in the No. 4 wideout role.

  • Dolphins' Erik Ezukanma: Lands in South Beach

    The Dolphins selected Ezukanma in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 125th overall.

    Ezukanma red-shirted his freshman season at Texas Tech before leading the team in receiving yards in each of his final three seasons with the Red Raiders. The 22-year-old finished with 136 catches for 2,117 yards and 14 touchdowns in that stretch, and he also added 10 carries for 138 yards and two scores in his senior season. He didn't run the 40-yard dash, and we don't expect him to have better than average speed, but his production is impressive. His 6-foot-2, 209-pound frame, long arms and 37-inch vertical provides some utility for the next level, too. He'll have to wait for an opportunity behind Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Cedrick Wilson.
