Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson looked like he was poised to have a big year in his first season in Miami in 2018, but after seven games he suffered a season-ending hip injury. The good news is, he doesn’t think it will affect him this season.

Wilson told CBS 12 in West Palm Beach that he’s on track to start the season.

“There’s no reason why I shouldn’t be out there Week 1,” Wilson said, via the Miami Herald. “Every test they’ve wanted me to take I’ve been right on track so there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be out there week one. I’m 100, I’m ready to go in when they give me the OK.”

What’s unclear is whether Wilson will be ready to go at the start of training camp. The Dolphins may have him start camp on the physically unable to perform list and ease him in before getting him on the field against the Ravens when the season starts on September 8.

  1. He was a great player during those 7 games- look forward to him returning. He offers something explosive in the short game, which I suspect we’ll need this year.

  2. Don’t worry Wilson no one will even notice your gone. First the qb has to be able to get the ball to you so there is problem #1. Second your oline has to hold their blocks long enough to allow the qb an attempt to get you the ball so there is problem #2. And problem #3, the hc is from the Belichick coaching tree. Wilson is a good player but he won’t get the ball.

  3. Wilson did most of his damage catching three yard passes and making YAC himself. Great OL or QB not required.

    Not sure where you came up with Pats offense not featuring short throws. Do you even watch football?

  4. He’s a fragile player who can create mismatches in the passing game when healthy. There’s some talent on the Dolphins offensive side of the ball, especially with the skill players. They will have to score a lot of points if they want to games because their defense has a lot of question marks.

  5. Plenty of weapons to get the ball out quick…comes down to the offensive line being able to block for 2 seconds.

  6. Albert Wilson is like a running back at the wr position. Hard to take down once he’s in open space. As much as Fitz like sling the ball around the yard, he’ll definitely get his touches. A breakout star on the come up.
