Things are going great for the Miami Dolphins. They're riding a four-game win streak, including two in a row since Tua Tagovailoa took over at QB.

It's not all sunshine and in the Sunshine State, however, as their offense just took a blow with the latest injury update on wide receiver Preston Williams.

Williams made an early exit with a foot injury in Week 9, and now he'll be on the shelf for at least three weeks after being placed on the IR.

Williams had been serving as the Dolphins No. 2 WR behind DeVante Parker this season, turning 35 targets into 288 yards with a team-high 4 touchdowns across eight games of action.

With Williams on the shelf, expect Parker (49 targets) to be leaned on even more heavily, while Jakeem Grant (24 targets) will pick up some of the slack as well. With Williams' early exit, Grant's 5 targets were tied for second-most on the team against the Arizona Cardinals.

Even with Williams sidelined, FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 10 NFL odds have the Dolphins as 2.5-point home favorites over the Los Angeles Chargers.
