Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (foot) off PUP, begins jogging
Dolphins WE DeVante Parker had foot surgery more than two months ago. Despite being off the PUP list, he’s not expected to practice yet. The move was done so both he and Jones can become involved in team activities.
It’s still a promising move for Parker, who hopes to return by the team’s Sept. 13 regular season opener in Washington.
Coach Joe Philbin said earlier this week that he’s optimistic Parker will be able to play at some point in the preseason, but it will depend on how he responds from running activities. Parker began running this week.
Parker's bid for a starting job was put on hold after foot surgery. He'll have to beat out Greg Jennings or Kenny Stills if he hopes to play starter's snaps as a rookie. There is some upside here, but foot injuries can be tricky. He's making progress with the return to camp.
