Podiatry in Sports: Dolphins take WR DeVante Parker (foot) off PUP list

The Miami Dolphins have taken rookie wide receiver and first-round pick DeVante Parker (foot) off the physically unable to perform list, the team announced Wednesday.

It remains likely that Parker will miss the remainder of the preseason, but the team is hopeful that he will be available for their Week 1 regular-season opener against the Washington Redskin on Sept. 13. Parker, the first receiver to be selected by the Dolphins in the first round since Ted Ginn Jr. in 2007, underwent foot surgery in June after a screw that had been previously inserted into his left foot needed to be replaced for precautionary reasons.

Parker, 22, caught 43 passes for 855 yards and five touchdowns in the six games during an injury-plagued season at Louisville last season. He is expected to play a major role in Miami’s revamped receiving core that includes fellow newcomers Kenny Stills, Greg Jennings and Jordan Cameron.

As Dr. Goldbaum mentioned in our previous story on Parker’s recovery, it is important for the dynamic wideout to take a measured approach to his recovery in order to decrease the risk of re-injury.

No longer on the PUP list, Parker is now allowed to participate in practices on a limited basis.

In addition to Parker, Miami also announced that backup defensive back Don Jones (shoulder) will come off the PUP list.

The Dolphins will hold joint practices with the Carolina Panthers on Wednesday and Thursday before facing the Panthers in their second preseason game on Saturday.
