Following his fourth concussion in four years, Jordan Cameron‘s NFL future may be in doubt. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins tight end will miss this weekend’s game against the Steelers, and the reporter notes that the veteran “could be out an extended period as he mulls his NFL future.”
Cameron is set to miss his third straight game, with the player and team being very cautious when it comes to his recovery. Salguero notes that the 28-year-old is “quite concerned about his longterm health.” The former fourth-rounder signed a two-year, $15MM deal with the Dolphins prior to the 2015 season, and he reworked his contract this past winter.
Cameron had a career year in 2013, when he established career-highs in receptions (80), receiving yards (917), and touchdowns (seven). The tight end hasn’t come close to matching that production over the past two-plus seasons, compiling 67 receptions, 870 yards, and six touchdowns in 29 games.
