The Dolphins will promote wide receiver Rashawn Scott from the practice squad, a source tells Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald (Twitter link). Miami already has an open roster spot given that it waived defensive tackle Leon Orr earlier today.
Starting wide receiver DeVante Parker suffered a back injury during the second half of Sunday’s win against the 49ers, and though he’s listed as day-to-day, he didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice. Parker has struggled with injuries in the past, and Scott’s promotion — coupled with the fact that the Dolphins worked out a quarter of pass-catchers yesterday — could indicate that Parker’s availability for Week 13 is in question. If Parker misses this weekend’s contest the Ravens, Miami will rely on Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills, Leonte Carroo, and Jakeem Grant.
Scott, 24, was a 2016 undrafted free agent out of the University of Miami. He was waived during the Dolphins’ final cutdowns in September, and has spent the entirety of this year on Miami’s practice squad.
