Wilson said he is making good progress in his recovery from a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Despite avoiding surgery, Wilson spent a couple weeks in a hip brace using crutches to get around. The Dolphins have already brought the maximum of two players back from injured reserve, though it doesn't sound like Wilson would be a candidate even if they still had a spot. He does seem to be on track for some level of participation in the offseason program while preparing for the second season of a thee-year, $24 million contract. The structure of the deal all but ensures Wilson will be back in Miami for at least one more year.
Wilson (hip) has officially been placed on IR.
In a corresponding move, Leonte Carroo was added to the Dolphins' active roster to provide Week 8 depth behind the team's top healthy wide receivers, Danny Amendola, DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant. Wilson, who finished the 2018 season with 26 catches (on 35 targets) for 391 yards and four TDs in seven games, won't require surgery to address his hip injury, per ESPN.com. He's under contract with Miami through the 2020 season.
Wilson (hip) will not require surgery but will likely be placed on injured reserve, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Dolphins apparently plan to allot Wilson all the time needed to make a full recovery, which is the basis for his inevitable IR stint. The fact that Wilson will avoid surgery is a good sign moving forward, suggesting the speedy wideout will return to full form by the start of the 2019 season. Miami has already designated lineman Jake Brendel and linebacker Mike Hull to return from IR, which will prevent them from being able to bring back Wilson. With Wilson no longer in the immediate mix at wideout, there's a possibility Miami is now in the market for a receiver.
Wilson is believed to have suffered an injury to the labrum of his hip during Sunday's 32-21 loss to Detroit. The Dolphins are bracing for news that it's a season-ending issue, but they haven't yet received confirmation. With Kenny Stills (groin) also out for Thursday's game in Houston, the team will need to turn back to DeVante Parker for a role in three-wide formations along with Danny Amendola (shoulder) and Jakeem Grant.
Wilson sustained a hip injury in Sunday's 32-21 loss to the Lions that is expected to sideline him for "some time," Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. The receiver is scheduled to undergo tests Monday to determine the severity of the injury.
Schefter's report aligns with the comments made Sunday by Wilson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, who indicated his client suffered a "significant" injury that would likely result in an absence of at least "a few weeks," per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Wilson's hip injury is believed to be related to his labrum, which could threaten the wideout's availability for the rest of the season. Confirmation on the extent of Wilson's setback should be revealed once the results of his MRI are read, but it appears the Dolphins could be without one of their top big-play threats for a while. Wilson, who signed a three-year contract with the Dolphins in the offseason, has posted 26 receptions for 391 yards and four touchdowns through the first seven weeks of the campaign.
