Dolphins put Preston Williams on IR

It’s not clear exactly how Dolphins wide receiver Preston Williams was injured in last Sunday’s win over the Cardinals, but we know he is going to be missing for a while.

Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said earlier this week that Williams was day-to-day with a foot injury, but said on Wednesday that Williams will be going on injured reserve.

“More significant than we thought,” Flores said, via Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald.

Williams will miss at least three games as a result of the move and Flores declined to give a timeline on when the team expects him back.

Williams left the game after scoring a touchdown in the second quarter. His left foot was held and twisted by a Cardinals defender as he leaped into the end zone and he appeared to be stepping gingerly with his right foot after defensive tackle Christian Wilkins jumped on him during a celebration.

  1. Man, timing sucks!!!! We could use Isiah Ford right about now, Hope Callaway can jump in and make a contribution. Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson opting out this year is really putting a strain on this WR group. Hopefully, we should be looking at available WR out there. I would kick the tires on Ted Ginn Jr, Ricardo Louis, and a Gary Jennings. I know Ginn can still take the top off the defense and still can be an asset in the kicking game. Louis and Jennings were with the team this summer so they should be able to pick up the offense pretty quick.

    NO, he was injured when the DB twisted his lower leg as he was lunging into the end zone.

    His subsequent TD dance celebration says otherwise.

    You might want to go rewatch the video before you disagree with me.
