Brandon Gibson WR MIA 13 Days

Gibson caught his only target for nine yards in Sunday's win over the Patriots.

Gibson currently slots in as the Dolphins' No. 3 wide receiver per the team's posted depth chart, but as long as the squad's top two wideouts, Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline, remain healthy, Gibson figures to be a hit-or-miss fantasy proposition.

Gibson is expected to be the Dolphins starting slot receiver when the season begins, according to the Miami Herald.

This is the same role Gibson occupied last season before blowing out his patellar tendon versus the Patriots. Gibson could be a useful cog in the Miami offense should quarterback Ryan Tannehill be ready to take that next step in his development.

Gibson caught two passes for 14 yards and a touchdown on two targets in Friday's preseason opener against the Falcons.

With Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace sitting this one out, Gibson and Rishard Matthews entered the starting lineup. Both fill-ins worked well with Ryan Tannehill, who led the team to a touchdown on his only drive. Hartline and Wallace are locked in as the starters, leaving Gibson to fight for snaps and targets with Matthews and second-round rookie Jarvis Landry. While he has more competition to go up against this season, Gibson does seem to have recovered nicely from the torn pattelar tendon that ended his 2013 season.

The Miami Herald's Adam Beasley said the Dolphin's top three receivers are Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and Brandon Gibson, and he does not "envision that changing."

Coming off a patellar tendon injury, there has been talk all offseason Gibson would cede his slot job to either Rishard Matthews or rookie Jarvis Landry. Beasley does not see that scenario playing out with Gibson now healthy and working at full speed. Gibson posted a 30-326-3 line in only seven games last season.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin has "no major (worries)" about Brandon Gibson's (patellar tendon) health, and believes he'll be able to go "full throttle" in the near future.

Gibson is in the final stages of his recovery, but should still be considered week to week. Gibson needs to be healthy for the preseason, where he'll attempt to hold off second-rounder Jarvis Landry for slot duties. There's a strong chance Gibson ends up settling in at No. 4 on the depth chart.

Ryan Tannehill says Brandon Gibson (patellar tendon) is "moving well, but still not 100 percent."

Gibson has taken part in some team drills at spring practices, but it's a legitimate question whether he'll regain his early-2013 effectiveness. Ruptured patellar tendons are among the toughest to recover from. Gibson will have to overcome the odds to not risk losing snaps to rookie Jarvis Landry.

Brandon Gibson (knee) is participating in team drills at Dolphins minicamp.

Gibson practiced in a limited fashion at OTAs and is likely still limited some at this week's minicamp. But he remains on pace to be full-go for training camp next month. The soon-to-be 27-year-old will try to hold off rookie Jarvis Landry for slot duties between Mike Wallace and Brian Hartline on the outside.

Brandon Gibson (knee) is on the field and participating in Tuesday's OTAs.

Gibson tore his patellar tendon in October, so he's made great strides and appears to be well ahead of schedule in his recovery. It's an important summer for Gibson after the team drafted Jarvis Landry, who projects as an immediate NFL slot receiver. 26-year-old Gibson has a real shot at being 100 percent for camp.

The Dolphins can save $1.735 million against the salary cap by releasing Brandon Gibson.

Gibson's roster spot is in danger after the Dolphins drafted WR Jarvis Landry in the second round. Landry has reliable hands and is an excellent blocker. He projects as an immediate contributor out of the slot and has drawn Hones Ward and Anquan Boldin comps. Gibson is coming off a torn patellar tendon.

Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey said he's been "pleased" with how Brandon Gibson (knee) has looked in the offseason conditioning program.
