Leonte Carroo: Clear of suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo is eligible to play after serving his four-game suspension, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

The Dolphins declined to tender Carroo a contract for 2019 and he ended up receiving the four-game ban in June. The 2016 third-round pick had 12 receptions for 192 yards and two touchdowns during his three seasons (37 games) in Miami.

Leonte Carroo: Suspended for four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo was suspended Tuesday for the first four games of the regular season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Carroo has been a free agent since March, when the Dolphins elected to not tender him for the 2019 season. With this suspension, Carroo likely won't be able to find a home in the league until after Week 4, and even then, he'd likely have to work with the organization for a few weeks before even seeing game action.

Leonte Carroo: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins didn't tender Carroo a contract for 2019, making him an unrestricted free agent, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins will move on from Carroo, who posted two receptions for 94 yards and one touchdown over nine games last season. The 2016 third-round pick never lived up to expectations in Miami and will work to revitalize his career elsewhere.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Catchless in season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo did not bring in his only target during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He ends the season with two receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown, along with one carry for 14 yards.

Carroo played only one offensive snap during Miami's season finale. The former 2016 third-round pick did not make the Dolphins' active roster until Week 8 of the regular season, and he logged the majority of his snaps on special teams during the nine games he was active despite his deep-threat speed. Any hope for future production from Carroo hinges upon him earning the favor of the Dolphins' new coaching staff, which will require him to impress during offseason workouts.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Limited to special teams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo didn't play any snaps on offense in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills.

There was no reward for his 74-yard touchdown the previous week, with Carroo limited to 17 snaps on special teams. There isn't much home for future production after the 2016 third-round pick was buried behind the likes of Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford on Sunday. It's even possible Carroo could lose his roster spot if Danny Amendola (knee) returns in the coming weeks.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Catches long touchdown pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo caught one of two targets for a 74-yard touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts.

Carroo made the most of his only grab, jumping over a defender to snare a deep ball before coasting into the end zone. He made his first catch of the season in Week 10, and while this splashy play certainly catches the eye, it's a bit premature to consider him as a fantasy option. Carroo will look to build on this effort next Sunday against a tough Bills defense.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Records first catch of 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo brought in his only target for 20 yards and rushed once for 14 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.

Carroo received his first offensive snaps (16) of the 2018 season Week 10. With Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve, Carroo appears to have successfully carved out a niche role in Miami's passing attack. While it's unlikely that Carroo will achieve fantasy relevance this season, the former third-round pick's usage is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Joins active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins signed Carroo off their practice squad Wednesday, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

He'll bolster the team's wideout depth while claiming the roster spot of Albert Wilson (hip), who was placed on injured reserve in a corresponding move. With Kenny Stills (groin) sidelined for Week 8 against the Texans, Carroo should dress as the Dolphins' No. 4 receiver Thursday behind Danny Amendola, Jakeem Grant and DeVante Parker. If the Dolphins end up parting ways with Parker before the trade deadline, Carroo could move up another spot on the depth chart.

Leonte Carroo: Added to Dolphins' practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo signed a contract to join the Dolphins' practice squad, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The Leonte Carroo experiment continues in Miami after the Rutgers product went unclaimed on waivers over the weekend.

Leonte Carroo: Released by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

A 2016 third-round pick, Carroo caught 10 passes in 28 regular-season games for the Dolphins. He always seemed unlikely to stick around for another season on a Miami roster with impressive depth at wide receiver.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Disappoints in preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Thursday's preseason finale against the Falcons.

Carroo drew the start at wide receiver but didn't make much of a case to survive Saturday's roster cuts. This is nothing new for the Louisville product, who the Dolphins traded up to select in the third round of the 2016 draft. However, Carroo at least proved to be past the groin injury that prevented him from playing in last week's exhibition against the Ravens.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Could be cut by Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo (groin) is in serious jeopardy of being cut, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Carroo's chances of making the team appear to be riding on his availability for the preseason finale Thursday. While a groin injury has limited Carroo's ability to showcase his talents, the Dolphins feel comfortable with who's currently listed ahead of Carroo on the depth chart. As of now, it seems Carroo would need a strong performance in Thursday's contest followed by a little bit of luck if he plans on sticking around in Miami.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Sits out Saturday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo (groin) was held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Carroo's absence from Saturday's game was no surprise after it was reported he'd miss several days with his groin injury. His exact return date isn't clear, but each day he misses will hurt his chances at securing a depth receiver role on the final roster.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Out several days with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Adam Gase reportedly said that Carroo (groin) will be sidelined "a couple of days," Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Carroo did not practice Thursday and it now seems like he'll miss the Dolphins' dress rehearsal game Saturday against the Ravens. The nature of groin injuries makes predicting a recovery timeline for them tricky. For Carroo's sake, each absence will work against him when it's time for crucial roster cutdowns.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Watches from sidelines Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

It appears Carroo suffered this injury during Wednesday's practice, and his status for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens is unclear. The 2016 third-round pick has caught 10 passes on 20 targets for 98 yards and one touchdown over his first two seasons. He's battling for a depth wideout role.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo (knee) has been fully cleared for the start of training camp, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

As expected, Carroo didn't need much time to recover from a minor procedure on his knee in early June. His bigger challenge is proving that he can be useful to the team, as Miami appears to have five roster locks at wide receiver in DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson, Danny Amendola and Jakeem Grant. The situation could force Carroo, a 2016 third-round pick, to compete with a handful of players for a single spot on the 53-man roster.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Undergoing knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo is slated to undergo minor knee surgery in the near future but should be healthy for the start of training camp in July, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

It doesn't sound like Carroo experienced a serious setback, but he's all but guaranteed to miss next week's minicamp, which only hurts his case for earning a larger role with the Dolphins in 2018. With incumbents DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Jakeem Grant joined this offseason by free-agent acquisitions Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola, Carroo may have to worry about securing a roster spot first before making a serious run at securing meaningful snaps.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Likely on roster bubble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo (undisclosed) likely will need to compete for a roster spot during training camp, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The Dolphins signed Albert Wilson and Danny Amendola this offseason to replace Jarvis Landry, giving them two options in the slot between starting outside receivers DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills. With speedy return man Jakeem Grant also expected to make the 53-man roster, Carroo could end up competing with a slew of players for just one spot. While he's caught only 10 passes in 28 NFL games, the 2016 third-round pick does at least have some experience playing special teams (181 career snaps). Carroo missed Week 17 last season after having an emergency medical procedure, but there was nothing to suggest that the unspecified issue will impact his preparation for 2018.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Shut down after emergency procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins placed Carroo on the reserve/Non-Football Injury list Wednesday after the receiver required an emergency medical procedure Christmas Day, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

The nature of Carroo's procedure hasn't been revealed, but the report notes that it wasn't a life-threatening situation and the 23-year-old is expected to make a full recovery. After seeing only light work as a rookie, Carroo wasn't able to carve out more consistent snaps with the Dolphins in his second season, as he finished the 2017 campaign with just seven catches for 69 yards across 14 games. The Dolphins promoted Rashawn Scott from the practice squad to take Carroo's spot as the No. 5 wideout on the roster.

Dolphins' Leonte Carroo: Career-high catch total in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carroo brought in six of eight targets for 48 yards in Thursday's 40-0 loss to the Ravens.

Both Carroo's reception and target totals were career highs, as he was a primary beneficiary of the absence of DeVante Parker (ankle). The 23-year-old had only one reception on the season coming into Thursday's contest, so it's difficult to put much stock into the sudden bump in production. Carroo remains a relative afterthought in the offense when the receiving corps is at full strength, which could well be the case for a Week 9 tilt against the Raiders.
