Dolphins News and Notes
RB Jeff Wilson’s 21 day window is now open according to HC Mike McDaniel. Wilson has been on IR since the start of the season. The RB must be placed on the active roster within the 21 days or he can’t return this season. McDaniel advised that Wilson will practice “NFL football” today.
The coach says it always hurts losing a good football player due to injury, but said he is comfortable with the depth and talent of the running back room.
Switching to the receiver room, McDaniel says he feels that WR Chase Claypool should be able to pick up the offense pretty quickly. When asked if Claypool might line up as a tight end, he said that Claypool is a WR. But, the coach added that he never fits any one player into a box.
