Wilson (hip) is expected to be healthy by the beginning of the offseason program in April, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Inked by the Dolphins to a three-year contract last March, Wilson didn't play beyond Oct. 21 due to a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip. Before the season-ending injury, he accounted for 26 catches (on 35 targets) for 391 yards and four touchdowns while mixing in a 52-yard TD pass to Jakeem Grant in seven games. As of late January, surgery officially has been ruled out as a possibility. Moreover, Wilson even charted some of his progress via Twitter, posting a brief snippet of him performing squats. With long-time quarterback Ryan Tannehill likely to be jettisoned in the offseason, Wilson should be working with a new signal-caller yet again, and his dynamic ability should help his case to be among the team's top skill-position players in 2019.
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.
