Parker (shoulder) donned a red no-contact jersey during Tuesday's practice session, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Parker thus can be considered a limited participant in Tuesday's practice session. Head coach Adam Gase declared Monday that there's a chance Parker will retake the field for Sunday's matchup with the Colts and the bye week has certainly worked in Parker's favor, potentially allowing him to avoid missing a game because of the issue. The team added Brice Butler to the active roster last week to provide some depth at wideout behind Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Leonte Carroo in the event Parker is unable to go.
Coach Adam Gase said Monday there is a chance Parker (shoulder) plays Week 12 at Indianapolis, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Early reports suggested Parker would miss time while recovering from an AC joint sprain, but he apparently has some chance to avoid a game absence with the help of a Week 11 bye. It would still be wise to view him as no better than 50-50 for Sunday's game in Indianapolis, considering the Dolphins signed Brice Butler last week to provide some depth behind Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Leonte Carroo. Meanwhile, the team hopes to get Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) back in the lineup this week, but it's far from a sure thing.
Parker likely will miss a few weeks, but the AC joint sprain in his left shoulder isn't expected to be season-ending, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Forced from Sunday's eventual loss in Green Bay with a shoulder injury, Parker later left the locker room with his left arm in a sling. Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reported Parker will avoid surgery, but it appears the wideout will be sidelined beyond the Dolphins' next game Nov. 25 at Indianapolis following a Week 11 bye. In the meantime, Parker's increased workload of late (22 targets over the last three contests) will be available to the likes of Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola, Leonte Carroo and Jakeem Grant (leg).
Parker (shoulder) will not require surgery and is considered week-to-week with a sprained AC joint, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
This is arguably one of the better scenarios the Dolphins could've asked for after Parker was knocked out of Sunday's loss to Green Bay with a shoulder injury and subsequently spotted after the game sporting a sling on his left arm. While it isn't clear how much time Parker may need to recover, it's possible he won't have to miss a game with Miami on bye Week 11. However, if Parker isn't able to play in time for the Dolphins' Week 12 bout with the Colts, Miami may need to lean heavily on Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola to fuel its passing game.
Parker (shoulder) left the locker room with his left arm in a sling after Sunday's 31-12 loss to Green Bay, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Parker was awfully busy prior to his third-quarter exit, catching five of 11 targets for 43 yards. With Jakeem Grant (leg) also removed from the game early, Leonte Carroo joined Danny Amendola and Kenny Stills in three-wide formations down the stretch. A Week 11 bye is good news for the ailing Dolphins, though it's far from a guarantee quarterback Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) will be ready for Week 12 at Indianapolis.
