DAVIE—Jarvis Landry has never missed a game since joining the Dolphins in 2014 and he intends to push that streak to 50 straight when they visit the Jets on Sunday.
Landry is dealing with knee and ankle issues that kept him out of practice Wednesday and limited his work today, but he insists he’ll be good to go for the game.
“Absolutely, no concerns,” he said. “I can play through that.”
Landry is one of the most physical players on the Dolphins offense and has played through a variety of minor injuries during his four seasons with the team. He’s withstood all of that to average 6.1 catches and 63.9 yards per game, making him one of Miami’s most dependable players in recent history.
In the season opener last weekend, Jay Cutler targeted him on 15 of his 34 attempts. Landry caught 13 of those passes for a total of 78 yards.
He tweaked his ankle during the game, and his knee flared up days earlier. Landry practiced fine last Wednesday and Thursday in California, then woke up Friday morning with swelling. He said it’s not a major issue.
“I wasn’t spooked,” he said. “The biggest thing for me was trying to get it to the attention of the trainers, figure out what was going on and from there, come up with a plan that helps me get to Sunday. That was really it.”
