This puts Waddle’s status for Sunday’s game against the Jets in doubt. 

Waddle, 23, was a part-time starter at Alabama. He was a first-team All-American as a sophomore before suffering an ankle injury that cost him a good portion of the 2020 season. The Dolphins drafted Waddle with the No. 6 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Waddle signed a four-year, $27,085,991 contract with the Dolphins that includes a $17,058,902 signing bonus. The Dolphins will have a fifth-year option to pick up on him in 2024. 

In 2021, Waddle has appeared in 13 games for the Dolphins and caught 86 of 115 targets for 849 yards and four touchdowns. He’s also rushed twice for three yards and a touchdown.
