NFL training camps are underway and unfortunately the injury bug has already started biting several teams. But for one Miami Dolphins wide receiver, the public isn’t even being informed what the injury is.
Speaking to the media on Thursday, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores announced that wide receiver Will Fuller is “dealing with something” and cannot practice today. Flores would not disclose the nature of the injury.
Whatever the injury was, it must have been serious. Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald noted that Fuller wasn’t even on the field for morning stretches.
Fuller is expected to play a big role with the Dolphins this season. He joined the team on a one-year deal after posting career numbers with the Houston Texans last year.
Will Fuller is indeed not on the field for stretch.

The Miami Dolphins offense overall needs to step up this season. Their defense finished sixth in the league in points allowed, but missed the playoffs due in large part to an offense that was anemic for large stretches.
Miami still finished the season 10-6 though, and with the pandemic no longer limiting practices or preseason preparation, they have few excuses not to take another step forward in 2021.
Hopefully the injury Will Fuller is dealing with isn’t serious. With all of the chaos of the last two years we don’t need freak injuries ending promising seasons before they can even begin.
How much of an impact would Will Fuller’s absence have on the team?
