Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller has returned to the team and was participating in team activities.
Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is considered day-to-day with his injury status. Coach Flores said Tua is still in a good deal of pain. Head Coach Brian Flores said in his media session regarding Tua’s status for this upcoming Sunday, “If Tua can Go he is going to Go, that’s just the kind of kid he is.” Flores went on to say, “He’s a tough kid. I’d say he’s a very tough kid. Just coming back from the hip, he got a thumb (injury) last year he really played through. He tried to go yesterday. Toughness isn’t something that I would question with him. He’s going to do everything he can to get back as soon as he can. I have a lot of confidence in that.”
Regarding the injuries to wide receiver Jakeem Grant and offensive linemen Jesse Davis, Coach Flores said they are still running tests. The early indications are that the news regarding both is promising Coach Flores said and he is hopeful to see both out there on Wednesday at practice.
