DeVante Parker’s agent, James Gould, tells Josina Anderson that the Dolphins’ decision to place his client on the PUP list Wednesday comes as no surprise, and he expects Parker to still be ready for the regular season.
“Very expected. I expected it. I’m not surprised by it,” Gould said of Parker ending up in the active/PUP list. “The goal is for him to come off of PUP for the regular season so that he’s ready for the regular season. All of the tests and everything that’s being done have been perfect. Everything is progressing the way we expected it to progress. There is no reason to expect him not be ready for the first regular season game.”
“I would be shocked if he is not ready for the first regular season game.”
The Miami Dolphins announced Wednesday that they’ve placed first-round WR DeVante Parker and S Don Jones on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list.

This is just a procedural move for the Dolphins and won’t Parker any regular season games. However, it’s at least something to monitor in the coming weeks.
Parker somewhat surprisingly dropped to the Dolphins at No. 14 overall. He offers plenty of ability and the potential to develop into a true No. 1 receiver for the Dolphins offense.
During his four years at Louisville, Parker caught 156 passes for 2,775 yards receiving and 33 touchdowns.
