In the NFL, Friday accident reports are often predictable. That’s not true for the one the Miami Dolphins issued this day.
Wide receiver Jarvis Landry, a man coach Adam Gase has known as the team’s best offensive player, was limited in the current practice due to a knee injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in the Chargers game schedule. Landry was not on the injury report all week and made no mention of any problems when he talked to the press Wednesday and Thursday.
Gase will deal with the media after practice and explain just how severe 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 last year of his rookie contract, which makes this a vital time for him financially.
The Dolphins also ruled out linebacker Rey Maualuga due to a hamstring injury he suffered in practice last week. Maualuga wasn’t expected to play and has yet to dress for any games since signing with Miami last month.
There is minimal concern about running back Jay Ajayi’s sore knee, and he has been listed as a full participant in practice weekly. Same for Mike Pouncey, who’s listed due to a hip issue and likely will be the whole season.
Walt Aikens, who performs safety and cornerback, is dealing with a back injury, but has practiced daily and needs to be available.
