Running out of receivers Kenny Stills Jersey , Miami Dolphins coach Adam Gase pressed running back Kenyan Drake into duty as a wideout with a quick tutorial.“We were telling Kenyan, ‘Run straight, turn left,'” Gase said. “We were trying to get creative. It’ll be interesting to see how we do it this week.”The Dolphins (4-3) need all of their inventiveness 鈥?and some reinforcements 鈥?to address a void difficult to fill.More Miami Dolphins newsDolphins, veteran LB Mike Hull agree to terms on 1-year contractThe next stop: Ryan Fitzpatrick moves into starting QB role with Dolphins, for nowDolphins sign former Jaguars guard-center Chris ReedDolphins sign QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to two-year, $11 million dealEnd of the road: Dolphins trade QB Ryan Tannehill to Titans for picksDynamic receiver Albert Wilson‘s hip injury is likely season-ending, Gase said Monday, although a visit to a specialist was planned before a final determination. Also ruled out of Thursday’s game at Houston was receiver Kenny Stills with a groin injury.Wilson and Stills 鈥?who have four touchdown catches each 鈥?were hurt in Sunday’s loss to Detroit. Another receiver, DeVante Parker, has been nursing a quadriceps injury and was inactive, which is how Drake became an emergency receiver.Compounding turmoil at the position, Parker’s agent Reshad Jones Jersey , Jimmy Gould, questioned Gase’s competence and complained that his client is healthy and should be playing.Parker will be back in the lineup against the Texans.“We don’t have any more receivers,” Gase said, managing a slight smile. “So I’m sure he’s going to play.”One or two receivers from the practice squad will likely be promoted. At quarterback, Brock Osweiler will make his third start in place of Ryan Tannehill, still sidelined by a throwing shoulder injury.“I’m sure a lot of people are probably counting us out with all these injuries and new guys we’re going to be playing,” Osweiler said. “But that’s what makes this fun. It’s going to be an us-against-the-world mentality, and we’re going to have fun with it.”Another receiver, Danny Amendola, was limited in practice Monday because of a shoulder injury. Even Osweiler was on the injury report with a sore back, but Gase said that issue wasn’t serious.The 32-21 loss to Detroit knocked Miami out of first place in the AFC East, and the defense looked like a cellar-dweller, allowing 248 yards rushing and forcing only one punt all afternoon.But that performance was overshadowed by the injuries at receiver Michael Deiter Miami Dolphins Jerseys , particularly the deflating loss of Wilson.He leads the Dolphins with 391 yards receiving on 26 receptions, including touchdowns of 75, 74 and 43 yards, and a 52-yard touchdown pass. He was on the verge of another long score when hurt while being tripped up in the open field.“I saw him at halftime,” Gase said, “and he was like, ‘Man, I was one step away from taking it to the house.’“I was like, ‘Yeah, I wish you would have.’ We wouldn’t be in the position we’re in right now.”Gase said there was a “very high possibility” the injury was season-ending. Stills’ injury is less severe, but the timetable for his return is uncertain.The same is true with Tannehill. He’ll likely start throwing this week, but that doesn’t mean his return is imminent.“I don’t know if it’s going to be an NFL football,” Gase said. He added jokingly Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , “We’ll grab one of our kids’ Nerf balls.”Armando Salguero Helped Me Consider an Achilles Injury in a New Light Let’s first be thankful that the injury bug didn’t hit us like last year. In the grand scheme of things, the Miami Dolphins are healthy. DeVante Parker is the only player who would’ve been expected to get significant snaps on Sunday vs. the Tennessee Titans that’ll not be available 1:00 at Hard Rock Stadium this Sunday.Yet, say that to MarQueis Gray or Tony Lippett and see if they feel the injury bug was generous this year.In a question that was born from the confusion about how the CB #2 “battle of training camp” became a “this-guy-is-no-longer-on-the-team-and-the-other-guy-looks-bad” situation, it was the way Armando Salguero said what he said about Tony Lippett’s achilles injury that catalyzed me to reflect so deeply. LISTEN TO THE FULL INTERVIEW WITH ARMANDO SALGUERO RIGHT HERECrazy as it sounds, ladies and gentleman, NFL players are human. We consume ourselves with the aura of inescapable perseverance like Cameron Wake returning from the same injury, and somehow code this ridiculousness into our brains as the norm. At least I did. Of course, you can come back from an achilles injury the next year! It happens all the time.Except maybe I have a faulty assumption? Yeah, pretty sure that’s it. I won’t pretend to know any statistics on the matter in terms of returns from achilles injuries by NFL position, but just thinking about how important the achilles tendon is in the physics of movement. If you think of the achilles as a focal point of concentrated force as you propel yourself from the ground to run, jump, dive, what-have-you Michael Deiter Jersey Cheap , it’s a fundamental aspect to athleticism. If that system is compromised in any way, movement becomes different. And the reality is that, what might be an infinitesimally slight difference for someone who works a desk job like me, it could be the straw that break’s the camel’s back in an NFL player’s quest for long-term work.So instead of thinking about this in a vacuum of black-and-white, I’ll appreciate the layers of gray. What kind of tear to the achilles? What position does the player play, and what skill sets are needed by that position? What’s the margin of error if athleticism is “different” ever so slightly?If there’s anything I’ve realized, it’s that an achilles injury might be the most devastating non-head/spine injury in the NFL landscape today: it’s not a mountain that everyone can climb. To be fair to the NFL players who risk their well being for my entertainment, not only will I be more cautious in projecting a player who has suffered an achilles injury, but I’ll stop dismissing everything as if it’s nothing. “The injury bug” became an empty shell of an expression in my worldview, and the interview with Armando helped provide a new framework.Thank you, Armando.
