After 10 days, Miami Dolphins tight end Mike Gesicki's stint on the COVID-19 injury list has finally come to an end. That's good news for a Dolphins squad that is looking to build on the 10-6 record they achieved in the 2020 NFL season. Considering how Gesicki finished second on Miami in receptions (53) and receiving yards (703) while leading the team in touchdowns (6), it's safe to say that this news was more than welcomed by the Dolphins.
Mike Gesicki Injury Update
While it's great to hear that Gesicki can resume training camp, there are still some concerns regarding the situation. One theory is that Gesicki spending the full 10 days on the COVID-19 list likely means that he isn't vaccinated against the virus, nor is fellow tight end Adam Shaheen. Considering how the Dolphins have likely lost rookie TE Hunter Long for the foreseeable future, it could be a rough year for Miami at the position if anyone else has to miss extended time due to COVID or injury.
Gesicki will enter his fourth season with the Dolphins in 2021. He seems to be improving with each passing season, so it'll be interesting to see if he can take another big leap this season. He's missed just one out of 48 possible games so far, recording 126 receptions for 1,475 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns.
Even though Gesicki and the Dolphins appear to be ready to take things to the next level in 2021, they're still facing the brunt of a lot of disrespect. FanDuel Sportsbook is currently projecting Miami to miss the postseason for the fifth year in a row at -144 odds.
