The Miami Dolphins suffered their first loss under interim head coach Dan Campbell. However, those weren’t the biggest news from the game.

Defensive end Cameron Wake has officially been lost for the season with a torn Achilles. However, it appears DeVante Parker will play again this season.

Parker, who was also injured in the game with a foot injury, is downplaying it by saying it’s “nothing serious.” Yet, it happened to his left foot that he had surgically repaired back in June.

As a result, he was barely able to play in the season opener against the Washington Redskins. On Thursday night on Thursday Night Football against the New England Patriots, he barely even played, but got hurt anyway.

One has to go back to his collegiate career with the Louisville Cardinals last year to know that he’s been dealing with foot injuries for a long time.

While he’s saying this is not a serious issue, he was telling reporters after the game that it’s a “tissue issue.”

For the time being, it looks like he’ll be able to play again. How much? We don’t know how Campbell will use him moving forward.

The 22-year-old rookie has been a complete bust this season as he has four receptions for 49 yards in six games. According to Pro Football Focus, the injury happened after just four snaps for him.
