    Huge blow for Binns. He was set to contribute this year and his confidence was at an all-time high.

    This **** always happens. We hear "not serious," "walked off on his own power," etc...
    And then BAM. We get cold cocked with the hammer out the clear blue.

    Really need Rishard Matthews to come back during the preseason to work as the #4 guy.

    sigh...terrible news.

    If Mathews is out for a while, we might look at bringing someone in after preseason roster cuts.

    How's Bryan Tyms doing? The kid we swiped from the 49ers PS. Maybe he can step it up, he's got speed and height.

    With Binns done for the season and Matthews out for a few weeks, I would have to think Miami will make a move for a veteran WR to compete. McNutt obviously now becomes a favorite for either the #4 or #5 spot, but I think they probably want a little more experience behind Wallace, Hartline and Gibson.

    Hopefully this our only blow, injury wise. I think we have a pretty good core of 4,5,6 wr's that binns will be an afterthought by the time the season starts. Hope he can recover quickly and have a decent nfl career.

    Time to get Thiggy some reps. Lloyd is still out there isn't he? Would he fit in our system?

    As a #4 receiver, would certainly be worth looking at.

    Yep, same thing happened to Ronnie Brown back in 2007. Walked off the field under his own power, seemed fine, then we find out BOOM- out for the year.

    sucks for the guy.

    rishard matthews is going to have a huge opportunity once he gets back on the field.

    i think the kid can do well.

    The only good that can come of this is it happened now and not week 1.

    Tyms, McNutt, Fuller, Bumphis, Collins, Stafford, Andrell Smith just moved up a notch.

    Damn shame after the camp he's had. Time to move on and find the next acorn looking to contribute. Hopefully Matthews is healthy fast. Personally, I would have Laurent Robinson on a plane tomorrow for a workout. Lloyd too if you're willing to spend the money he might ask for.

    will be interesting to see who gets the bump in reps now...i'm sure mcnutt is first in line...

    i'm not even sure what's on the street that can help us anyways...option route system is not for everyone...no more washed up vets please...i'd much rather take a chance on a kid then some on his last legs veteran who's more name than player at this stage

    You sure you didn't want to say something about the kicker competition and a wasted 5th round pick?

    Binns is done and I can see Matthews getting IR'ed soon.

    I would like to see Thigpen get used in the slot. I think McNutt makes it now. Also, Jasper Collins is a kid that I think has potential.

    Collins and Thigpen do bring special team abilities. But I think you need a taller receiver like Fuller, or even McNutt.

    I feel bad for the guy, but even if healthy it's likely he was the 4th WR on this team. Not exactly the highest priority, since we'll likely be running a lot more 2 TE sets, and 3 WR sets. I don't see us doing many 4 WR sets, that's not where our strength was going to be anyway.

    Brandon Stokley and Brandon Lloyd are two vets that could interest. However, I would stay young at this time.

    thigpens making the roster already barring a terrible showing in the preseason so they'll have him in the slot in their back pocket as an option in those 3 wr sets should something happen to gibson or he not show well...we still have our 3 wr single te single back top 3 wides available which is what i think you're gonna see a lot of this year anyways and without knowing mathews injury its hard to see him being put on ir right now...

    when things like this happen it would have been nice given the quality of the depth in the wr draft class in 2013 if they had used a pick on one...but oh well...next man up...

    i'd expect them to offset issues at wr with more multi te sets etc vs going to the 5th wr options in games...more clay keller and sims...sims has got some soft hands for a big man...doesn't fight the football

    That was my thinking , i am not going to get too worked up over losing our possible 4th wr in training camp. It does put a strain on making sure everyone else stays healthy in the coming weeks though.

    Damn he would have been a nice piece.... One worry I have is that he seemed to be one of our better red zone threats


    Also please retire than damn roster number

    Mando thinks the Fins are going to look outside the organization for help.

    Armando Salguero ‏@ArmandoSalguero 51m
    Expect the Dolphins to be looking at adding another WR to replace Armon Binns, who tore his ACL and MCL today as Barry Jackson reported.

    I was dubious Binns was going to live up to this early hype but it still sucks for him, though if it makes it more likely Rishard Matthews survives the cut downs then it might turn out to be a better thing for the team long term, as I think he has a much brighter future than Binns.

    I agree with hoops that Jeff Fuller is terrible. He is just too goddamn stiff. Like a board. Marvin McNutt never impressed me at Iowa, though he has a leg up given his college offensive coordinator in Ken O'Keefe is our wide receivers coach. I expected Chad Bumphis to flash early on but he hasn't at all, apparently, though of course it's early. The guy I think has a chance here is Jasper Collins. He's a bit whispy for the kind of slot player this coaching staff seems to like but he's got some definite skills. Excellent hands, crisp routes, good enough speed. I'm more intrigued to see what he's got than a guy like Brian Tyms, tbh. Thigpen is a natural playmaker but he was a college running back iirc so he's a neophyte to playing wide receiver.

    The key though is Rishard Matthews. If he had torn something I think we'd know by now. Given the time frame on his return it sounds like a high ankle sprain, though that's a complete guess on my part. If it was a groin pull or something like that I'd think he'd be on an exercise bike at practice. That's usually the drill for those guys.

    Fuller was one of Tannehill's favorite targets at Texas A & M. He's nice and big. How has he been going at training camp?
    Presumably, Sherman knows exactly what he has in Fuller. If they don't give him many reps, then he's likely to be cut.
