Derby appeared in only four games this season, as he dealt with foot and knee injuries throughout the year. The 27-year-old ends his season with three catches for 48 yards and a touchdown. Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki should see increased workloads to finish out the season.
Derby (foot) is inactive for Sunday's Week 13 tilt against the Bills.
Derby continues to be hampered by a foot issue that first cropped up during a Week 3 matchup against the Raiders. The fourth-year tight end's absence creates additional opportunity for Nick O'Leary and rookie Mike Gesicki in an offense that will also be missing receiver Danny Amendola (knee) on Sunday.
Derby (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Derby has been managing the foot issue nearly all season, suiting up just once (Week 10 against the Packers) over the Dolphins' past nine games. Though he practiced fully Friday, it hardly guarantees he'll be active Sunday, as he's logged numerous full practices over the past several weeks only to sit out once gameday arrives. Should Derby be ruled out again this weekend, Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki would likely split most of the snaps at tight end.
Derby (knee) is inactive for Sunday's contest against the Colts.
Derby has missed a hefty chunk of the season with lower-body injuries this year, and now his knee will cost him Week 12. Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki will absorb the 27-year-old's snaps.
Derby (foot/knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Derby was limited at practice throughout the week, leaving his status for Sunday up in the air. The 27-year-old missed six games with a foot issue prior to returning Week 10 against the Packers, but is now dealing with a knee issue as well after the bye week. Mike Gesicki would serve as the Dolphins' No. 2 tight end should Derby be unable to suit up Sunday.
