Dolphins Place WR Albert Wilson On IR, Promote WR Leonte Carroo

The Miami Dolphins announced Wednesday that they’ve promoted WR Leonte Carroo to the active roster and placed WR Albert Wilson on injured reserve.

The expectation was that Wilson was going to be placed on injured reserve in the coming days with a hip injury, so this doesn’t come as a big surprise.

Wilson’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said Sunday night during an interview with WSVN that his client appears to have suffered a “significant” hip injury, per Joe Schad.

According to Rosenhaus, the best-case scenario for Wilson is that he misses a few weeks while the worst-case scenario is that he’s done for the season.

Wilson, 26, signed on with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia State back in 2014. He finished the final year of a three-year, $1,540,000 contract before returning to the Chiefs on a one-year restricted deal worth $1.797 million for the 2017 season.

The Dolphins signed Wilson to a three-year, $24 million contract that includes $14.45 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $790,000 and $6.975 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2018, Wilson has appeared in seven games for the Dolphins and caught 26 passes for 391 yards receiving and four touchdowns.
