According to Jeff Darlington of ESPN, Miami Dolphins’ wide receiver, DeVante Parker, will not play today against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a hamstring injury.
Miami’s coaches had hoped to have Parker test his hamstring before today’s match-up, however Darlington reports that Parker woke up with his leg feeling tight. The Dolphins decided to take the safe route and rule him as OUT before even taking the field pre-game.
Bad news for Dolphins WR Devante Parker, who’d hoped to test his hamstring today and potentially play. He woke up tight, and I’m told he is now going to be OUT today without any pregame warmup.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) October 10, 2021
DeVante Parker joins fellow starting Dolphins’ WR Will Fuller on the sidelines for Sunday’s contest.
On-again, off-again wide receiver, Isaiah Ford, has been elevated to the active roster for this game, and will look to build on the chemistry he and Brissett reportedly had in training camp. Preston Williams will take on a larger role for the suddenly short-handed wide receiver unit which is also without Jakeem Grant following this week’s trade with Chicago.
The Dolphins and Buccaneers kick off at 1pm ET from Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium.
