That’s probably a smart move considering Parker has proven to be fragile since beginning his NFL career. The second-year wide receiver missed part of OTAs and minicamp this offseason with an undisclosed injury, and he underwent foot surgery last summer and missed most of training camp and the preseason as a rookie.
That trend continued this week, as Parker missed his second consecutive training camp practice Thursday with a sore hamstring. Parker watched the end of Thursday’s practice with a bag of ice wrapped around his right hamstring.
Parker seems locked in as one of the team's starters so the team wants to make sure he's ready for the regular season. While he finished last year on a nice pace, it's still time missed with QB Ryan Tannehill.
