Dolphins say DeVante Parker's foot 'fine'

Sun-Sentinel - [Full Article]

Miami Dolphins rookie receiver DeVante Parker's surgically repaired left foot didn't suffer a set back in Thursday night's 36-7 loss to the New England Patriots.

Even though Parker left the game with what was diagnoses as a foot injury a more thorough evaluation of the foot he had surgically repaired for the second time this summer showed no significant damage was done.

"He’s fine," interim Dolphins coach Dan Campbell said on Friday when asked the the receiver Miami selected with the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. "It doesn’t look like there’s anything that’s wrong there.”

It took Parker months to regain confidence in his surgically repaired left foot, which had a screw replaced in June. The rehab stalled the former Louisville standout's progress as an NFL rookie. He's sparingly contributed this season, catching four passes for 49 yards because of his initial setback.

Fantasy Impact: 

Parker continues to make progress in Miami's offense, but he's firmly entrenched behind Jarvis Landry, Rishard Matthews and Kenny Stills on Miami's depth chart. The only chance he has of moving up the depth chart and earning playing time is to impress Miami's coaches during practice, the story said. Reports have always said he was very impressive in the offseason before the injury.
