Parker was listed as a full participant in Dolphins practice Thursday for the first time since he broke the middle finger on his right hand back on August 12th. Parker stated that his finger “bent the other direction” as it got caught in a pair of shoulder pads while attempting to haul in a pass.
Parker, who is sporting a pad on his hand during practice, said that he is not feeling any pain nor does he have to catch the ball differently.
“He seems fine,” Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said. “He’s itching to play. We went through today, got him involved in team reps. Now, it’s just me going to ask Kyle [Johnston, Dolphins head trainer] what the reaction was. He hasn’t complained about anything. He’s been aggressive to get out there and catch as many balls as possible. Running wise, he’s good. He’s good.”
“I know when he tells me that, he’s ready to go and he wants to go,” Gase said. “When he’s that emphatic about it, that’s a good sign for us.”
Gase believes that this is a “start over” for Parker.
“He’s about a foot taller than everybody else” Gase said of Parker’s skillset. “He’s a big guy that has really good long speed and has good quickness in and out of his breaks. He has an unusual skill set for a guy that size. The times that have been really good with him in games, he can make some freakish plays. It’ll be good to kind of get him going again. Really, it’s a start-over for him. Whatever happened before he was injured, it’s really behind him.”

Texans’ Demaryius Thomas Wants To Continue Playing Career
“My main priority right now is getting back healthy. I can still play, man. I’m not thinking about retirement. I just don’t know where it will be,” Thomas said, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson.
“I told them I would love to finish my career here, but we’ll see…This is what we have to deal with as players and guys in the locker room. I hope my appearance and being around the guys and talking to a couple of guys helped. I don’t want to say I helped that much play-wise, but leadership-wise, I think I helped.”
