Grant suffered an Achilles injury in the Nov. 11 loss to the Packers that ultimately required surgery, but the Dolphins surprisingly decided to keep him on the 53-man roster for more than two weeks before finally shifting him to IR. Miami will use the open spot on fellow wideout Isaiah Ford, a 2017 seventh-round pick of the club who should fortify the Dolphins' depth at the position with Grant and Albert Wilson (hip) done for the season and Danny Amendola (knee) and DeVante Parker (shoulder) both iffy for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Grant will undergo season-ending surgery Monday to address the Achilles injury he sustained in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. The Dolphins have placed Grant on injured reserve, a league source tells Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post.
While the loss of Grant is another hit to the injury-plagued Dolphins, the wideout at least received good news regarding his prognosis. Grant, whose injury was previously labeled as a leg issue by the team, didn't suffer a ruptured Achilles' tendon, according to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, which will allow him to avoid a full reconstructive surgery that would have necessitated a longer recovery process. Instead, Grant will require a more minor procedure to address the injury, which should put him on track to be 100 percent for the start of training camp next summer. With both Grant and fellow wideout Albert Wilson (hip) now done for the season, Miami will proceed with Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and DeVante Parker (shoulder) as its primary targets at the position.
Grant (leg) won't require surgery and is considered week-to-week with the expectation that he'll play again this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant's season appeared to be in jeopardy after the receiver pulled up lame while running a route during Sunday's loss to the Packers. Fortunately, it appears Grant avoided any sort of long-term injury -- including a severe aggravation of the Achilles injury he entered the game with, which many feared could be the case. With the Dolphins on bye Week 11, it's possible Grant may not even need to miss a game. Considering DeVante Parker (shoulder) can also be considered questionable for Miami's Week 12 matchup against Indianapolis, Leonte Carroo could be headed for a heightened role for a game or two.
Grant (leg) is scheduled for an MRI, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Grant entered Sunday's 31-12 loss to Green Bay with a sore Achilles and was carted of the field in the third quarter with a leg injury. He was then spotted in a walking boot after the game, but coach Adam Gase is optimistic the speedy wideout didn't suffer a season-ending injury. A Week 11 bye will give Grant and the other injured Miami players -- including QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder) and WR DeVante Parker (shoulder) -- some extra time to heal.
Grant (leg) exited the locker room wearing a walking boot following Sunday's loss to the Packers, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant was forced out of Sunday's contest after pulling up while running a route during the third quarter. The speedster entered the game with a listed Achilles issue and it wouldn't be surprising if Sunday's incident is related to that pre-existing ailment.
