Parker is slated to work under a new offensive coordinator in Dowell Loggains next season, Chris Perkins of the Sun Sentinel reports. Loggains, who served as the Bears offensive coordinator the last two seasons, worked with Miami coach Adam Gase in 2015. He'll replace Clyde Christensen, who will remain with the Dolphins in a different role.
Big things were expected of Parker heading into the 2017 season, but the 2015 first-rounder largely underwhelmed, hauling in 57 of his 96 targets for 670 yards and a TD in 13 games. At 24 years of age, Parker still has the talent to put things together in 2018, but in order to do so he'll have to avoid the sort of nagging injuries that have slowed him through his first three years as a pro. Perhaps Loggains will find ways to maximize Parker's skills, plus the wideout's prospects could be boosted by the return of quarterback Ryan Tannehill (knee), who spent this past season on IR. Moreover, Jarvis Landry, who caught 112 passes on 160 targets this past season, is slated to become an unrestricted free agent, and if he doesn't re-sign with Miami, there would be added opportunities for the likes of Parker and Kenny Stills, as well as Jakeem Grant and Leonte Carroo.
Parker (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Parker, who caught five passes (on 10 targets) for 63 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs, will look to finish out his 2017 season on a high note in a contest that the Bills must win, but that carries no playoff implications for the Dolphins. The 2015 first-rounder has been seeing enough volume of late for that to potentially occur, having racked up 11 catches on 22 targets for a combined 152 yards over his last two outings.
Parker (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills after practicing fully both Thursday and Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Despite the injury designation, look for Parker, who caught five passes (on 10 targets) for 63 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs, to be available Sunday. Parker, who has racked up 11 catches on 22 targets for a combined 152 yards over his last two games, will look to close out his 2017 campaign on a high note in a contest that the Bills must win, but carries no playoff weight for the Dolphins.
Parker (ankle) returned to a full practice Thursday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Parker, who caught five passes (on 10 targets) for 63 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs, will thus be available for Sunday's season finale against the Bills. With 11 catches on 22 targets for a combined 152 yards over his last two games, the volume has been there of late for the 2015 first-rounder, so Parker will look to close the season on a high note in a game that Buffalo must win, but carries no playoff implications for the Dolphins.
Parker (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.
Parker's status will be monitored as the week rolls along, but the expectation is that he'll be available for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Bills. The 2015 first-round pick logged five catches (on 10 targets) for 63 yards in the Dolphins' Week 16 loss to the Chiefs. Parker's overall stats this season -- 51 catches for 606 yards and a touchdown -- aren't anything special, but he's picked up the pace in his last two outings, combining for 11 catches for 152 yards on 22 targets.
