Derby (foot) finished the 2018 campaign with three catches for 48 yards and a touchdown in four games.
Derby missed most of the season while nursing a foot injury that eventually landed him to injured reserve in early December. He did average 31 snaps on offense in his four appearances, opening the season as Miami's top pass-catching option at tight end. The team surely wants 2018 second-round pick Mike Gesicki to seize that role in 2019, but there may still be room for Derby on the roster as a depth tight end and special teamer. The 27-year-old can also weigh other options, as he'll become an unrestricted free agent in March if he doesn't re-sign with the Dolphins first.
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.
