OXNARD, Calif.–In the NFL, Friday injury reports are usually predictable. That’s not the case for the one the Miami Dolphins issued this afternoon.
Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, a guy coach Adam Gase has referred to as the team’s best offensive player, was limited in today’s practice because of a knee injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at the Chargers. Landry wasn’t on the injury report all week and made no mention of any issues when he spoke to the media Wednesday and Thursday.
Gase will address the media after practice and clarify how serious the injury is.
Landry led the team in catches (94) and yards (1,136) and had four touchdown catches last season. He’s playing the final year of his rookie contract, making this a crucial season for him financially.
The Dolphins also ruled out linebacker Rey Maualuga because of a hamstring injury he suffered in practice last week. Maualuga was not expected to play and has yet to dress for any games since signing with Miami last month.
There’s minimal concern about running back Jay Ajayi’s sore knee, and he’s been listed as a full participant in practice all week. Same for Mike Pouncey, who is listed because of a hip issue and probably will be the entire season.
Walt Aikens, who plays safety and cornerback, is dealing with a back injury, but has practiced every day and should be available.
