Back on field for OTAs

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-21

Ezukanma (neck) participated in OTAs on Tuesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Ezukanma played in just two games at the beginning of 2023 before being placed on the reserve/non-football injury list in September due to a neck injury. He was cleared of his injury before the end of last season, and he admitted to reporters Tuesday that he was concerned that he would not be able to play again, per Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post. Ezukanma has appeared in three regular season games since joining the Dolphins in 2022, and he will battle for a spot for a spot on Miami's wide receiver corps for 2024.

Placed on NFI list

Ezukanma (neck) was placed on the eserve/non-football injury list Friday.

Ezukanma will miss a minimum of four games, starting with Sunday's tilt in Buffalo. The earliest potential return date for Ezukanma is Week 8 against the Patriots. With fellow wide receiver River Cracraft (shoulder) on injured reserve, Braxton Berrios and Cedrick Wilson make up the entirety of the receiving depth behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle on Miami's 53-man roster,

Sitting out again Week 4

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-29

Ezukanma (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Ezukanma will miss a second consecutive game as a result of this injury. His next chance to take the field will come at home against the Giants in Week 5. Miami's offense leads the league with 43.3 PPG through three games, but the 2022 fourth-round pick hasn't contributed much to that total. Ezukanma has drawn just one target in 2023 while rushing five times for 22 yards.

Still out for practice

Ezukanma (neck) did not participate at the Dolphins' practice Wednesday, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Ezukanma missed the team's 70-20 Week 3 win over the Broncos with a neck injury and he has now opened the week on the sidelines at practice. The wide receiver will have two more chances to return to the field this week prior to Miami's divisional matchup with the Bills on Sunday.

Inactive Sunday

Ezukanma is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos.

With Jaylen Waddle (concussion) out Sunday, Tyreek Hill will lead the Dolphins' Week 3 WR corps, with Braxton Berrios and River Cracraft likely next in line for targets, while Cedrick Wilson and Robbie Chosen are also candidates to mix in.

Involved on ground again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-18

Ezukanma had three carries for five yards during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Patriots.

Ezukanma handled two carries Week 1, so it appears that his involvement as a depth option in the rushing game isn't an apparition. Of course, Ezukanma's usage could dissipate if De'Von Achane's involvement rises as the season progresses. Nonetheless, in deep fantasy formats it will be worth keeping an eye on Ezukanma, just in case the Dolphins are indeed committed to keeping him involved.

Logs two carries Week 1

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-11

Ezukanma had two carries for 17 yards during Sunday's 36-34 win over the Chargers. He was not targeted.

Ezukanma was not involved in the receiving game despite Miami playing from behind for the entirety of Sunday's win, but he did look explosive on two carries. It's encouraging to see Ezukanma already have logged more offensive touches than he did as a rookie last year, but he remains clearly behind Braxton Berrios and River Cracraft on the wide receiver depth chart.
