Derby caught one of two targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.
Derby returned to the field for the first time since Week 3, and led Miami's tight end group in both offensive snaps (30) and targets. It appears that Derby is the No. 1 tight end in the Dolphins' lackluster offense, but he's nonetheless unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance while sharing time with Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki.
Derby (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Packers, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Derby will dress for the first time since September after missing the Dolphins' last six games with the foot injury. The 27-year-old has been a full participant in practice for a while, but it wasn't until this week that Miami was comfortable with signing off on his return to game action. Though Derby opened the season as the Dolphins' starting tight end, he may only fill a limited role at the position behind Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki in Week 10 in light of his lengthy layoff.
Derby (foot) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Derby was able to fully participate in practice all week, but nonetheless does not appear to have fully recovered from a lingering foot injury that's kept him sidelined since Week 3. Even if the fourth-year pro is able to suit up, he's unlikely to achieve fantasy relevance while sharing snaps with fellow tight ends Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki in a low-powered Dolphins passing attack.
Derby (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Derby hasn't seen the field since Week 3, despite having logged multiple full practices since that time. The veteran tight end continues to nurse a lingering foot injury, and evidently, his full practices haven't been enough to lessen the Dolphins' concern about his health. Even if Derby is cleared to play Sunday against the Packers, it seems likely that he'll be forced to settle for a limited role behind fellow tight ends Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki.
Derby (foot) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Derby has not appeared in game action since Week 3, lending additional opportunities for Nick O'Leary and Mike Gesicki at tight end.
