    Is anyone surprised he got hurt again? Another good player that can not stay healthy.

    At some point Ross and Gase need to sit down and really look at & into our medical staff. Between the Dion injury scenario, Parker, etc... through out the years it just seems like we either full on baby a guy's injury or we misjudge the extent of injury and further put the player at risk to do more damage.

    On the other hand, some times injuries just happen and plague a player through their career(s). Look at the Giants and Odell, they sat him first week of the season because of ankle, last week he was coming in and out of the game limping with pain because of ankle, today it fractured.

    Depends on how the injury occurred

    Hate to hate on him for being injury prone- some things you just can’t help

    If he left on crutches then it's bad. It sucks because this is something our offense does not need. You can't replace what he brings out there and next Sunday we're playing at the falcons and we'll; need points. Our defense played great today but the falcons's offense is a whole new game

    Ozzy rules!!

    Think he is the odd man out and we keep Jarvis. Be really stupid to keep a guy that gets hurt every year and just shows signs of being good. Jarvis is great. Period

    Parker has flashed but that's all it is at the end of the day. Flashes. Meanwhile you have Landry who is as consistent as they come and I don't believe has missed a single game. If you have to choose between the two take the safe bet. There's enough players that give me a heart attack when they're hit already one this team.

    I agree. Flashes with injuries don't compare to Jarvis

    Agreed. You keep the guy that is going to be on the field and consistently produces.

    His ankles are made out of toothpicks. So tired of these players who are chronically injured.

    Hard to judge Parker without Tannehill honestly, the whole offense has been stagnant. OL is bad too. Parker has been okay so far given the circumstances

    I hope he's out for the season so we stop wasting targets on him getting no yac or not know the down and distance or not being able to keep his feet in bounds. One or two jump ball wins don't make up for him being a bum the rest of the game.

    Reminds me of Sammy Watkins and the Bills. They made a nice trade to unload him and his injury issues and he’s playing well in LA. At this point I can’t see sinking a lot of money into a guy that can’t stay on the field.

    Parker doesn’t have the heart for the NFL, unfortunately. Some guys want it more than others. All we’ve heard is that he didn’t eat well, didn’t hydrate, didn’t practice well, and on and on.

    Everyone sees him finally practice well and thinks he’s suddenly going to explode. So much for that.

    Parker is a injury prone talented player since college. Dolphins have to stop drafting/signing injury prone players period!
    There are some players that are like Bruce Willis in the movie unbreakable and players that are like mr glass.

    I don't know why in the hell we drafted him in the first place. He had foot issues in college and has screws holding his foot together for God sake. Stay away from these players who have had an injury history in college.

    I agree. Parker is still an unknown. Another season of this and he becomes damaged goods. I've seen enough.
    Unload him for a 1st round pick next year or trade him during the season for LB or OT.
    A younger solid proven starter in a position of need would be a value.

    Well knowing T-bum. We will keep Parker and not pay Landry. I can already see the Epic Fail. 2 years after that. Parker played 20 games in 2 years and still showing flashes. Then T-Bum fired, and then Landry haunting us in a Patriots uniform

    I don't understand the whole Landry/Parker debate. We can always franchise Landry this season if we really need to. Parker isn't a free agent until the end of the 2018 season. At that point we can cut Stills and save $6,250,000 in cap room. If there is a choice we really don't have to make it for 2 more years anyway and at that point it isn't a Landry/Parker choice but a Landry, Parker, Stills choice where we can easily keep 2 and by then we might have the choice already made for us due to play or injury.

    Our wide receivers are unwatchable when Parker is off the field. Stills, Carroo, and Grant can't even get open.

    It's a shame he's a softy.

    What did Tannenbaum do, sit there and say "oh Parker had some surgeries and has screws holding his foot together, well lets select him with our 1st round pick".

    Stills is just a waste of money anymore. He's suppose to be so fast blah blah blah and he doesn't do jack. Don't even get me started on Carroo. Is he even around or did he go missing from the team?

    He got jumped by Grant on the depth chart. Grant had an impressive preseason, but watching him try to get separation out there today was embarrassing. If we lose any of our top three receivers we are in serious trouble. Parker's skillset, however, is irreplaceable for this team. There isn't another player on this team with his ability to go up and get a 50/50 ball......since Julius Thomas can't even jump anymore.

    Carroo is an enigma at this point. Stills is suffering because Cutty is not taking shots downfield.

    Carroo was suppose to be so damn good this year. All the talk about him being in top physical shape and running faster, making big plays, knowing the playbook etc etc etc

    He's showing every bit a one dimension receiver. That's not who he was last year though. He ran good routes and got open, especially along the sideline. I'm puzzled.

    Right now, with Parker out, Landry is the only receiver on this team (and that includes tight ends) that can get open, but all of his routes are designed short. Why, I don't know.... He gets out of his breaks well up the field.

    It is bizarre. On paper they should be producing. Feels like the entire passing game is just out of synch w/out Tannehill. I don't know what else it could be at this point.

    That seems to be what's going on. I don't see much effort in the routes by our receivers. Even saw Landry not fight for a ball today, which is something I've never seen from him. At some point in the game his emotion was actually lost.

    Just a really flat offense, which is a shame because the defense is getting after it. Those guys are fired up every time they take the field

    I don't understand how if stills is so fast he can only do the deep stuff. Like does he not know how to run routes? Can't we draw up plays to get him the ball on a slant or a drag?

    Maybe he wouldn't have gotten injured had he turned upfield after catching the ball instead of dancing and running laterally. Just sayin.

    Pay Jarvis. Jarvis much more valuable than Parker. And Grant and Carroo aren't showing me anything either. Time to find another receiver ... again.
