The Splash Zone 8/9/16: DeVante Parker Nearing Return

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

DeVante Parker has missed the past week with a hamstring injury and is slowly earning the "injury-prone" label. Parker dealt with a foot issue during his rookie season, so he needed to prove this offseason that he can stay healthy. So far, he has not done that. There is no denying Parker has the talent to be a premier wide receiver in the league, but you need to stay healthy. The Dolphins are optimistic he will return soon and the Dolphins are going to need him on offense this season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
