Julius Thomas and Jermon Bushrod placed on IR

The organization put two more starters on injured reserve Wednesday — tight end Julius Thomas and guard Jermon Bushrod, both with foot ailments — upping their total of starters or would-be starters on IR to eight.

...

it’s hard to see how Thomas returns in 2018, given his production (41 catches, 388 yards and three touchdowns) and his contract situation (he’s due $6.6 million next year, but the Dolphins can walk away from it with no salary cap pain).

Thomas hurt his foot early in Sunday’s loss to the Bills, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said, but played through it.

Hopefully we've seen the last of these two washed-up scrubs on the Dolphins.

Thomas Duarte was added to the active roster to replace Thomas. Hopefully we'll see the end of him after the season too. Amazing that we've kept him so long. Yet another wasted draft pick.

But...but...I thought Gase said the last two games were important and everyone was "playing for their jobs"!

I actually read that Duarte has been getting some reps with first team offense over the last couple weeks.

I’m not saying he’s great but it would be a good thing if he can show enough to earn a spot on the depth chart. I’d rather need one tight end instead of two.

Seriously. Some good news would be nice for a change, and it would be cool to see someone actually develop.

I expect nothing from Duarte. The second he was drafted I said that he was not an NFL player and was a throw-away pick. I've seen nothing that would make me change that opinion. It would be a great story, but I don't see any reason for optimism.
