For a player whose job is to catch the ball, a broken finger is a significant injury. It looks like Fuller could end up missing even more time for Miami.
Dolphins HC Brian Flores has already ruled Fuller out for Week 5 against the Buccaneers, per Marcel Louis-Jacques.
Fuller, 27, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2016. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $10.164 million contract and stood to make a base salary of $1.83 million for the 2019 season when the Texans exercised his fifth-year option in 2019.
Fuller was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent during the offseason when he signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins.
In 2021, Fuller has appeared in two games for the Dolphins, catching three passes for 20 yards.
