Grant (hamstring) was held out of practice Wednesday, Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald reports.
Grant injured his hamstring two weeks ago and has yet to return to practice. While the issue was initially thought to be minor, his continued absence is cause for some concern. He's expected to serve as the team's kick returner and a depth receiver, but his injury may open the door for Preston Williams, Isaiah Ford, or Brice Butler to make the final roster.
Grant (undisclosed) did not practice Saturday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant hasn't been able to practice since suffering a minor injury Wednesday, but considering the lack of information regarding the severity, it's perhaps safe to assume the speedy wideout will be just fine. Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford have been the main duo to benefit from Grant's absence, with the latter earning strong reviews following the team's scrimmage Saturday, but neither figures to threaten the 26-year-old's role as a gadget receiver extraordinaire.
Grant left Wednesday's practice early due to an undisclosed injury before returning to field punts without a helmet, Chris Perkins of The Athletic reports.
Grant's injury is not considered serious, but it was severe enough to cause his exit from practice for a short period of time. The 26-year-old pass catcher is entering his fourth season with the Dolphins and currently projects as their No. 5 receiver.
Grant (Achilles) is practicing Thursday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Grant reportedly looks sharp in 1-on-1 drills, displaying his usual speed and agility. He suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury Nov. 11, declining to provide details apart from denying that he ruptured the tendon. Grant has served as the fourth/fifth receiver and return specialist throughout most of his career, but he could challenge for a top-three WR role this summer if either Albert Wilson (hip), Kenny Stills or DeVante Parker disappoints.
Grant (Achilles) said Tuesday that he's "over the mental hump" in his rehab process, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Grant hasn't commented on the exact nature of his injury, merely denying that it was an Achilles tear. Whatever the case, he was a limited participant in Miami's offseason program and may be eased into practices during training camp. Despite the injury limiting him to 10 games, Grant enjoyed his best season to date in 2018, catching 21 of 34 targets for 268 yards and two scores while adding a kick-return touchdown and a punt-return score. His ability to handle both return jobs while also serving as a third or fourth receiver could inspire the Dolphins to offer him an extension as he enters the final year of his rookie contract.
Grant (Achilles) was a limited participant in the first day of OTAs on Tuesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant has been rehabbing from a season-ending Achilles injury since he underwent surgery back in November, but it looks like the speedster is close to returning to full health. Given that it's early in the offseason, the Dolphins don't really have a reason to rush Grant back into action, especially since his primary role will likely be in the return game.
Grant (Achilles) is still working his way back to full strength, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Grant suffered the season-ending injury Nov. 11 and had surgery a week later, but he denied early reports that the issue was an Achilles rupture. Whatever the case, he's still in the rehab process five months later, presumably hoping to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. The 26-year-old figures to have a role in the return game and could even challenge DeVante Parker for a regular spot in three-wide sets.
Grant revealed Friday that his season-ending injury wasn't a ruptured Achilles, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. "Just a minor surgery," Grant said. "Not a rupture. Nothing big. I'll be back. No time date. I'm getting better each and every day."
Grant suffered the injury Nov. 11, undergoing surgery Nov. 19 and landing on injured reserve Nov. 28. While he didn't elaborate on the exact nature of the problem, he did acknowledge that it may prevent him for taking part in OTAs. Grant is hopeful to be ready for the start of training camp, yet acknowledged it's not quite a sure thing. The rebuilding Dolphins may prefer a cautious approach, especially when dealing with an undersized player who is entirely reliant on his agility and speed to be effective. Grant has one season remaining on his rookie contract.
Grant (Achilles) isn't sure if he'll be ready for OTAs, but he does expect to be on the field at the start of training camp, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Given that he ruptured his Achilles' tendon Nov. 11, it's far from a sure thing Grant is actually ready for team drills at the start of camp. He also faces a greater challenge than most players coming back from the same injury, as the 5-foot-7, 170-pound wide receiver is entirely reliant on his excellent speed and agility. Grant won't have much value to the Dolphins if he loses a step, so the team figures take a cautious approach ahead of what's widely being viewed as a rebuilding season. The 2016 sixth-round pick has one year remaining on his rookie contract.
The Dolphins placed Grant (Achilles) on injured reserve Wednesday.
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 period. 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 Sunday's incident might be related to that pre-existing ailment.
Grant (leg) was carted of the field in the third quarter of the Dolphins' contest against the Packers on Sunday.
Prior to his exit from the game, Grant -- who had been dealing with an Achilles issue -- did not haul in his only target. While it's unclear if his Sunday issue is related to that, at first glance, it looks as though the wideout's injury could be serious.
Grant (Achilles) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant has been bothered by the Achilles injury for a few weeks, but it has yet to force him to miss any game action. Though the wideout will be available Sunday, he'll likely take a backseat in the Dolphins' passing attack to the likes of Danny Amendola, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker. Grant played one more snap than Stills did in the Week 9 win over the Jets, but it's worth noting that Stills' workload was likely limited coming off a groin injury.
Grant (Achilles), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers, is expected to play, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The Achilles injury has plagued Grant for a few weeks now, but the wideout has apparently convinced the Dolphins' training staff that the issue is something he can continue to play through after he practiced Wednesday through Friday in a limited fashion. Even so, Grant looks to be no better than the fourth option at receiver in a middling Dolphins passing attack after playing only 51 percent of the offensive snaps in the 13-6 win over the Jets in Week 9, trailing both DeVante Parker (89 percent) and Danny Amendola (82 percent). Grant did play one more snap in the contest than Kenny Stills, but Stills was limited while returning from a one-game absence due to a groin injury and is expected to step into a larger role Sunday.
Grant (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Green Bay, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant's practice reps were capped all week by an Achilles injury, an issue that could rear its head on the field at some point in the second half of the season. For the time being, though, he has a chance to suit up Sunday afternoon, which will be revealed approximately 90 minutes before the 4:25 PM ET kickoff. If he's deemed available to the Dolphins offense, Grant will be a fringe option in the passing game behind fellow wideouts DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola.
Grant (Achilles) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant's reps were also limited Wednesday, but the Dolphins likely wouldn't have cleared him to practice at all if there were truly any concern about his health. In any case, Grant would clear up any lingering doubt about his availability for Sunday's game against the Packers by practicing fully Friday. The wideout was held to one reception for 16 yards on two targets in the 13-6 win over the Jets in Week 9 and looks to be trending down with Kenny Stills (groin) nearing full health and DeVante Parker having emerged from exile to log big snap shares the past two games.
Grant (Achilles) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Grant may have picked up the injury during Sunday's 13-6 win over the Jets, but it probably wasn't as big of a factor as the return of Kenny Stills (groin). With DeVante Parker and Danny Amendola also primed for key roles, Grant lines up as the likely No. 4 receiver for Sunday's game at Green Bay, though he could bump up to No. 3 if Stills runs into issues with the groin injury. There hasn't been any indication Grant's Achilles' tendon injury is a major concern.
