Steelers Star RB Le’Veon Bell to the Dolphins? Can the Fish be in the Mix for His Services?

Pittsburgh Steelers star Running Back Le’Veon Bell isn’t going to play this season after deciding to sit out when he and the team that drafted him could not make a deal.

With a year of rest underneath his belt, Bell won’t be in black and gold next season, but how about playing in Miami?

Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report says that the dynamic back will probably be in New York next season, giving the Jets running back position the biggest upgrade it could possibly get (unless maybe they dealt for Rams running back Todd Gurley).

But, he also talks about some other teams in the mix for Bell’s services, and one of them could be the Dolphins, where he would give a HUGE upgrade to the offense.

Here’s the portion of the story about the Dolphins and Bell:

There was this from an AFC East front office executive, who felt Miami will be the pick: “Makes the most sense to me. [Coach] Adam Gase would do wonders with Bell in that offense.”

So while it sounds like a long shot, how great would the Fins offense be with Bell running the football wearing green next season?

Dolphins Workout Former Broncos First-Round QB Paxton Lynch

Paxton Lynch, a quarterback selected by Denver in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft, had a workout with the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday but was not signed, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

During his workout, Lynch threw passes to former Cowboys receiver Brice Butler, who was signed by Miami to bolster the team’s depleted depth due to injury at the position. The Dolphins are on their bye week, and players have been given the week off.

Lynch, who has appeared in five NFL games with four starts, was released by the Broncos at the beginning of the season. He has completed 61.7 percent of his passes with four touchdowns, four interceptions and a 76.7 career passer rating.

Lynch was the third quarterback selected in the 2016 draft at No. 26, behind top two QB picks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz.

Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant Did Not Tear Achilles in Sunday’s Loss to Packers

Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant did not tear his Achilles in Sunday’s road loss to the Green Bay Packers as initially feared according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Grant had been struggling with an Achilles injury in practice last week and apparently re-aggravated it against the Packers. The team feared the worst when the 26-year-old had to be carted off the field so the follow-up is definitely good news. Grant still may “miss some time” but it does not sound like this is a season-ending injury.

He will have the Week 11 bye week to rehab. Grants has been a real boon for the Dolphins’ offense in 2018, with two receiving TDs and a punt return for touchdown as a big-play threat behind Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker.

Dolphins Offensive Line Beat Up Heading Into Sunday’s Game

The Dolphins are desperately trying to find enough healthy bodies to suit up on their injury-ravaged offensive line for the Week 10 matchup against the Packers at Lambeau Field according to Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post.

“We’ve got about nine different lineups,” head coach Adam Gase said. “If you’ve got a pulse you’re in the mix. We’re out of guys.” Left guard Ted Larsen is listed as doubtful for Sunday with a neck injury, while left tackle Laremy Tunsil and right tackle Ja’Wuan James are both listed as questionable. And Gase said the team is still struggling to replace Josh Sitton, a Pro Bowl guard they signed this offseason with the thought that he would make a big difference up front. Sitton suffered a season-ending injury in Week One.

Counting Sitton, the Dolphins could be down as many as four starters on their O-line on Sunday. Quarterback Brock Osweiler could be in for a very long day.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson to Be Placed on IR with a Hip Injury

Dolphins receiver Albert Wilson will be placed on injured reserve prior to Thursday’s game, effectively ending his first season with the team, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Wilson will not require surgery for a hip injury he suffered in Miami’s loss to the Detroit Lions last Sunday, but the move to injured reserve will give him time to recover.

“Thank you God. No surgery needed! The comeback will be real!!” Wilson posted from his Twitter account Tuesday evening after he was evaluated in the morning.

Wilson will become the ninth Dolphins player placed on injured reserve this season, but will not be able to return after 8 weeks. The Dolphins have already designated their allotted two players, center Jake Brendel and linebacker Mike Hull, to return from injured reserve this year.
