It meant that Binns is all the way back from the knee injury he suffered early in training camp last summer, a knee injury that cost him the entire 2013 season. It also meant that Binns continues to find a way to get himself noticed on the practice field, the same way he did last offseason and in the first days of training camp before his unfortunate injury.
In the big picture, it means that Armon Binns continues to be a player worth watching.
“I’m just trying to pick up where I left off,” Binns said. “It was a tough blow. I was doing well. I just tried to pick up where I left off and be the same player that I was and better.”
Binns, who will turn 25 the day after the 2014 regular season opener against the New England Patriots, is still trying to establish himself as an NFL wide receiver.
Binns isn't on the fantasy radar right now, but at 6-3, 211, he is among the biggest receivers on the Dolphins roster, the story said. And what he showed last year in practice and this spring is the ability to use his size to his advantage, as well as the ability to make the tough catches.

The Dolphins have been with the rehabilitation of their injured wide receivers, GM Dennis Hickey said, adding that he's been "pleased" with the manner Brian Hartline, Brandon Gibson and Armon Binns have looked in the offseason conditioning program.

Dolphins WR Armon Binns came along, and was so dominant in practice during his three weeks with the team last year, coaches made him the slot receiver for the final three games and began calling plays for him. Fast forward six months and, fortunately for Miami, this waiver-wire find continues to deliver.
The articles continues that if Binns continues on his present pace during training camp and the exhibition season, he could push Brandon Gibson for his role as Miami's slot receiver.

Nobody in the Dolphins' offense helped his stock more this offseason than WR Armon Binns, who dropped two passes in the season finale. “That left a bad taste in my mouth,” he said. “I want to show Ryan I can be consistent, show them who the real Armon Binns is.”
Joe Philbin likes having bigger receivers in the slot: 6-0 Brandon Gibson or 6-3 Binns. “Sometimes, it’s easier when you have a bigger body at times cruising through the middle,” Philbin said. “I don’t want to jinx him – I’m usually the kiss of death – but [Binns] is playing faster.”

Marvin Jones will get the start with Sanu out.

Bengals WR Armon Binns (ankle, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice Thursday and is questionable for Week 7. Binns may play but he's not a fantasy option against the Steelers.

Bengals WR Armon Binns (ankle) was added to the injury report Thursday after missing practice. If Binns would be replaced by Marvin Jones and/or Brandon Tate, but Andrew Hawkins would probably be the biggest beneficiary.

An update on the Bengals depth chart:
At the receiver spot opposite A.J. Green, Brandon Tate is listed as the starter over Armon Binns. Tate missed part of last week’s practices with a hamstring injury, but did play in Sunday’s mock game and had a touchdown to complete the Black team’s two-minute drill. When healthy, the fourth-year receiver has taken the early snaps with the first unit in 11-on-11 drills.
We're expecting TE Jermaine Gresham to be the de facto WR2 in Cincinnati this year.

Tate, who did both last season, is going to have a more extended role on offense.

Late last season, teams could take away the passing game by shutting down WR A.J. Green because the Bengals did not have a receiver who excelled on short to medium routes. With Jerome Simpson and Andre Caldwell gone, it looks to be a three-player competition among Brandon Tate, Armon Binns and Mohamed Sanu. Tate and Binns showed improvement during OTAs and minicamp, but Sanu, a third-round pick, might have the edge because he is a physical receiver who excels between the numbers.
Tate appears to be in the lead for the WR2 job, though it's early. We're expecting TE Jermaine Gresham to get the second-most targets in the Cincy passing game.
