The news out of Miami wasn’t bad this week for the Miami Dolphins as both Reshad Jones and receiver Albert Wilson both returned to practice.
For the Miami Dolphins, Albert Wilson may be the most dynamic receiver that the team has but he hasn’t played any significant role since injuring his hip last year against the Lions at Hard Rock Stadium. Now he has at least returned to practice after suffering a calf injury in week one against the Ravens.
His practice on Wednesday was limited and his availability for this Sunday’s game against the visiting Chargers won’t be known until possibly game time. If he is healthy enough to return to the field, Josh Rosen will have a stellar weapon in his receiver group and one that has really good catching hands.
While the news on Wilson is good, the return of Reshad Jones is better for a defense that needs that extra punch from an experienced veteran. Jones returned to practice on Wednesday after having missed the last two games against New England and Dallas.
Jones has missed time with an ankle injury and his return couldn’t come at a better time. Bobby McCain has a shoulder injury and missed practice on Wednesday and Jomal Wiltz was injured last week at Dallas and is not likely to play this week.
Jones was asked about his status with the team and reiterated that he wants to be here with the Dolphins and see this through. That will be interesting to see if Miami feels the same way after the season. Jones is expected to be released next off-season due to cap concerns. If Jones wants to see this through it will be interesting to see if he will take a pay cut to remain.
As for the status of all of them, we will know more after the Friday injury report and more likely an hour before kick-off.
