Report: Dolphins unsure if Isa Abdul-Quddus can play in 2017

The Dolphins may need to address the safety position a year after signing Isa Abdul-Quddus to a three-year deal.

Abdul-Quddus started the first 15 games of the 2016 season for Miami and turned in a solid year for his new team before a neck injury forced him onto injured reserve. His recovery from that injury has reportedly not gone as well as hoped.

Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports that the Dolphins are uncertain about whether Abdul-Quddus will make it back to the field for the 2017 season. “Swelling in the region” of the injury is among the reasons for concern about Abdul-Quddus’ availability and he is continuing to undergo tests to see if the problem can be solved.

A shoulder injury knocked Reshad Jones out early last season and he’s expected back for the team’s offseason work. Top reserve Michael Thomas is a restricted free agent, so the position is one the Dolphins could look to bolster even if the medical news about Abdul-Quddus improves in the coming weeks.

    This guy had a near pro bowl year, between him and Reshad the Phins have a great secondary if they could just stay healthy.

    My friends and fellow Dolphins fans looked at me like I was nuts when I said their most important free agent signing this year would be Michael Thomas, who’s not only in the DB rotation but is also a stud for 25-30 snaps a game on special teams.

    Hey, you guys! Still think I’m nuts??

    Damn. They said yes.

    I was afraid Trump tried to deport him

    Maybe the Fins should start seriously looking at Washington Safety Budda Baker.

    Abdul-Quddus better hope that the Dolphins don’t play an overseas game. He might not be let back in the country under the president’s new rule against Muslims.
