Should return after four games

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-04

Wilson (knee) should be ready to return from the injured list Week 5 according to his agent agent Drew Rosenhaus, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Coach Mike McDaniel was vague about Wilson's expected return timetable after the running back's initial placement on IR, but it looks like he may only miss four games after all. Wilson is dealing with injuries to his midsection and finger, the details of which have yet to be disclosed in full. With Wilson out a minimum of four games, Raheem Mostert looks set to begin the 2023 campaign as Miami's clear lead back. Rookie third-round pick De'Von Achane (shoulder) will resume practicing Monday, so he could handle the No. 2 if cleared for Week 1.

Return this season not ruled out

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-31

Coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that he "wouldn't be surprised" if Wilson (abdomen), who the Dolphins placed on IR, is able to return this season, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports.

Wilson will be eligible to return from IR after missing at least a requisite four games, but McDaniel's hesitancy to guarantee an expected return date could hint at a longer recovery for the veteran running back. He's dealing with two separate issues, per David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel, injuries to both his midsection and finger. Wilson's absence, however long it may ultimately be, paves the way for Raheem Mostert to achieve workhorse volume, unless the Dolphins opt to limit his touch totals to preserve health. Salvon Ahmed (neck) is expected to resume practicing soon while De'Von Achane (shoulder) appears more up-in-the-air for Week 1, and Chris Brooks is the only other running back on the team's active roster.

Could return later this year

Wilson is recovering from midsection and finger injuries, with coach Mike McDaniel saying Thursday that he "wouldn't be surprised" if the running back comes back from injured reserve later this season, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Wilson left practice early Aug. 9 and subsequently missed the rest of the preseason, leaving more reps for De'Von Achane (shoulder), Salvon Ahmed (neck) and Chris Brooks behind probable starter Raheem Mostert. Only Mostert and Brooks were healthy at the end of the preseason, but Achane and Ahmed could join them in the coming days/weeks, whereas Wilson needs more time to rest/heal. Wilson is ineligible through Week 4, making Oct. 8 against the Giants his earliest possible date for a 2023 debut.

Placed on IR

The Dolphins placed Wilson (undisclosed) on injured reserve Thursday, ruling him out for the first four games.

Wilson initially left practice early Aug. 9 and didn't play in any of Miami's preseason games. He's now ineligible for the first four weeks of the regular season, though the team hasn't provided details on the nature of his injury. Fellow RBs De'Von Achane (shoulder) and Salvon Ahmed (head) also picked up injuries this August, but so far neither has been ruled out for Week 1 at the Chargers.

Absent from practice

Wilson (undisclosed) isn't practicing Wednesday, Joel A. Erickson of The Indianapolis Star reports.

Neither is Salvon Ahmed (head), while De'Von Achane (shoulder) is sporting a non-contact jersey. Oft-injured Raheem Mostert and undrafted rookie Chris Brooks are the only healthy running backs on the initial 53-man roster, though it does seem likely at least one or two of Wilson/Achane/Ahmed is ready for Week 1 against the Chargers. Wilson has been absent from practice since an early exit Aug. 9, with coach Mike McDaniel thus far declining to provide details on the injury.

Not playing Saturday

Wilson (undisclosed) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason finale against Jacksonville, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Wilson left practice early Aug. 9 and missed all three weeks of the preseason. He and De'Von Achane (shoulder) both appear uncertain for Week 1, which opens the door for Salvon Ahmed, Myles Gaskin or Chris Brooks to get a spot on the initial regular-season roster.

Unlikely to play Saturday

Wilson (undisclosed) is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason contest against Houston.

Wilson left last Wednesday's practice early due to an undisclosed issue, and he didn't play in the Dolphins' first preseason game. The veteran back is now being held out of the team's second exhibition contest, though the nature and extent of the issue are unclear. When healthy, Wilson is expected to form a 1-2 punch with Raheem Mostert in Miami's backfield this season, with rookie De'Von Achane providing additional firepower.

Leaves with injury Wednesday

Wilson (undisclosed) departed Wednesday's practice early with an injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Wilson's injury details remain undisclosed, but even if he's just tending to a minor issue it could impact his availability for Friday's preseason game against the Falcons. The veteran looks primed to handle a sizeable role in Miami's backfield alongside Raheem Mostert and rookie Devon Achane, so it will be worth monitoring his status closely.

Staying in South Beach

The Dolphins re-signed Wilson to a two-year contract Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

With the team also retaining Raheem Mostert, Miami now brings back its core backfield duo from the second half of the 2022 season. After the 49ers dealt Wilson to South Beach at the trade deadline last November, he racked up 96 touches for 486 yards from scrimmage and four TDs from Weeks 9-18, while Mostert racked up a 98-544-3 line in the same span. Expect a similar breakdown for the pair in the coming campaign.
