Dolphins coach Adam Gase said he “was close” to activating wide receiver DeVante Parker for Miami’s opener in Seattle. Yet, Gase could not assure that Parker will be ready for Sunday’s game in New England.
“We just want to make sure we get him as close as possible where feel we’re not going to have another setback,” Gase said. “Is it going to be this week? I would love it. We need him to practice, we need him to push himself. I know he’s trying to do that. I see how he’s rehabbing, I see how he’s working out, he’s running. It’s just how everybody feels right before that game.”
Parker, a second year player from Louisville, has been in and out of practice for most of training came while dealing with a hamstring issue. He was on the field for the first time all week on Friday in Seattle but was limited. Parker said today he feels like he’s “close” to 100 percent.
