DAVIE–It’s looking increasingly unlikely that the Dolphins will have wide receiver DeVante Parker for Sunday’s game against the Falcons.
Parker was not on the field for today’s practice, staying in the building for treatment on his injured ankle. He has not practiced all week.
If he’s unable to play Sunday, the Dolphins will count on Jakeem Grant (two catches, 11 yards) and Leonte Carroo (no catches) in his place. Grant played 33 snaps after Parker exited against the Titans last weekend, though coach Adam Gase said he regretted not giving Carroo a bigger opportunity.
Parker is first on the team with 236 yards and second in receptions at 19. Jay Cutler has targeted him on 28 attempts.
All other players on Miami’s active roster were available to practice today. Running back Jay Ajayi (knee), cornerback Byron Maxwell (foot) and center Mike Pouncey (hip) were on the field.
Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips has been out three weeks with an ankle injury, but has practiced the last two weeks and should be active Sunday.
