Dolphins WR DeVante Parker sustains injury setback in practice
Miami Dolphins wide receiver DeVante Parker sustained a setback in the recovery of his ailing hamstring in practice this week and is doubtful to play against the Houston Texans, coach Brian Flores said Friday.
Parker, who is also nursing a shoulder injury, was listed as a limited participant in Thursday’s practice.
He returned from a three-game absence to reel in eight passes for 85 yards in the Dolphins’ 26-11 loss to the Buffalo Bills last Sunday.
Miami (1-7) likely will lean on rookie Jaylen Waddle and tight end Mike Gesicki in the passing game against the visiting Texans (1-7) on Sunday.
Parker, 28, has 25 receptions for 327 yards and one touchdown in five games this season.
He led the Dolphins in receptions (63) and receiving yards (793) last season to go along with four touchdowns. He has 323 catches for 4,539 yards with 23 touchdowns since being selected by Miami with the 14th overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
