Coach Adam Gase confirmed that Stills has his back lock up. It was a scary scene as Stills was lying on his back in apparent serious pain on Monday. But one day later, Stils was jogging with little apparent discomfort. Stills has emerged as quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s second-favorite target in the preseason.
Gase didn’t say specifically what was troubling Parker, but his continuous bout with nagging and seemingly minor injuries have become frustrating for him and the team. Parker has all the physical tools to become an upper-echlon receiver, but Gase noted that his propensity for injury is starting to remind him of what Demaryius Thomas experienced early in his career in Denver.
Good news for both receivers. A report yesterday speculate that Parker's injury was a re-tweak of his hamstring but the Dolphins don't appear to be commenting on that.
