MarQueis Gray: Doesn't stick in San Fran
Gray was released by the 49ers on Saturday.
Gray failed to carve out a role in a deep tight end room, even though San Francisco opted to retain four players at the position.... See More ... See Less
49ers' MarQueis Gray: Signs with 49ers
Gray is signing with the 49ers, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Gray will compete for a depth role in a crowded tight end room that also includes Jordan Reed and Ross Dwelley (foot) behind clear-cut starter George Kittle (hamstring). The 30-year-old Gray hasn't played in the NFL since suffering an Achilles injury prior to the 2018 season.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Non-contact injury ends season
The Achilles' issue that landed Gray on IR was the result of a non-contact injury, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Coach Adam Gase confirmed Thursday that Gray is out for the year, which sets the stage for rookie Mike Gesicki to carve out a significant role as a pass catcher in the Miami offense, while A.J. Derby should factor in on that front as well.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Achilles injury behind IR placement
Gray was placed on injured reserve Thursday after suffering a torn Achilles' tendon in Wednesday's practice, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The Dolphins had listed Gray as a limited participant in the session due to a foot injury, but Rapoport's clarification of the setback provides a better explanation for why the team elected to remove the 28-year-old from the 53-man roster. While the Dolphins haven't offered a projected timeline for Gray's recovery, injuries of this nature are almost always of the season-ending variety, so it's not expected that the team will reserve one of its two designated-to-return spots for him. With Gray out of commission, rookie Mike Gesicki could be thrown into the fire as the Dolphins' top pass-catching tight end in Sunday's season opener against the Titans.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Headed to injured reserve
The Dolphins placed Gray (foot) on injured reserve Thursday.
Though Gray was a limited participant in the Dolphins' first official practice of the regular season Wednesday, there was little indication that the injury was concerning enough to keep him sidelined for Week 1, much less result in a placement on IR. In any event, Gray's setback will leave the Dolphins without their projected season-opening starter at tight end, paving the way for rookie Mike Gesicki to see extended reps in his NFL debut. The Dolphins signed veteran Gavin Escobar in a corresponding move to boost their numbers at the position.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Limited in practice Wednesday
Gray (foot) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Gray, expected to serve as a backup to 2018 second-rounder Mike Gesicki, remains day-to-day with a foot injury. If the 28-year-old veteran is unable to suit up for the season-opener against the Titans on Sunday, Gesicki could see a larger snap count during his NFL debut.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Logs eight offensive snaps Saturday
Gray (concussion) played eight snaps on offense and seven snaps on special teams during Saturday's 27-10 preseason loss against the Ravens.
Gray has yet to record a single reception this preseason. The 28-year-old projects to enter the season as a backup to Mike Gesicki, and with only 27 catches in 61 career games, he's unlikely to attain any fantasy relevance.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Nearing concussion protocol exit
Gray (concussion) has yet to return to practice and remains in the league's concussion protocol, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Gray seems close to stepping back on the field but has yet to be cleared by an independent examiner. There's a chance he'll be cleared before Miami's preseason game Saturday, but with little practice reps leading into the contest, it seems like a stretch. Perhaps Gray's eyes are best suited on next Thursday's preseason finale against Atlanta.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Remains in concussion protocol
Gray (concussion) is likely in the third stage of protocol but still needs to be cleared by an independent examiner, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Gray appears to be nearing a return, but still has some work to do. He currently projects to back up Mike Gesicki at tight end this season.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Sidelined by concussion
Gray (concussion) won't play Friday night against the Panthers, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
With Gray sidelined, Mike Gesicki will draw the start at tight end for the Dolphins on Friday, which offers the rookie a chance to carve out some DFS utility this week.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Enters concussion protocol
Gray won't take part in practice Tuesday after entering the concussion protocol, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
Both Gray and running back Kalen Ballage were diagnosed with head injuries following Monday's practice session. It seems unlikely that Gray will make enough progress in his recovery to suit up in Friday's exhibition against the Panthers, which may hamper his efforts to unseat rookie second-round pick Mike Gesicki as the Dolphins' top tight end once the regular season kicks off....

Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Getting work with starters
Gray and A.J. Derby opened training camp with the first-string offense, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.
Despite using a two-TE formation on the first play of training camp, the Dolphins figure to remain highly reliant on three-wide sets, leaving Gray, Derby, second-round pick Mike Gesicki and fourth-round pick Durham Smythe to compete for 70-85 cumulative snaps per game. With only 27 catches in 61 career games, Gray is an extreme long shot to earn fantasy relevance, regardless of how he's being used at the start of camp. Gesicki is the upside play among Miami tight ends, offering rare athleticism for the position.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Little usage in 2017
Gray recorded one reception for 10 yards (on two targets) and 14 rushing yards on five attempts in 2017.
Gray was never a significant part of the offensive gameplan, as most of his work came as a blocker on special teams. However, we saw him tote the rock for the first time since his rookie year, so his offensive role did evolve to some degree. Gray remains under contract with Miami in 2018 but, as usual, shouldn't be counted on to emerge as a fantasy contributor.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Ready for Sunday's contest
Gray (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Gray has just one reception for 10 yards through 15 games this season, so his return will help mainly in the run-blocking department in Sunday's divisional matchup.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Questionable for Week 17
Gray (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Gray injured his hip last week against the Chiefs, but he returned to practice Thursday and logged a full Friday session. Consequently, he seems more likely than not to suit up. If he doesn't, Thomas Duarte could see additional reps.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Returns to practice Thursday
Gray (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Gray missed Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury he sustained last Sunday against the Chiefs. His availability in any capacity Thursday certainly bodes well for his chances of suiting up for the season finale Sunday against the Bills.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Misses practice Wednesday
Gray (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Gray had to leave the game Sunday versus the Chiefs due to the injury, and his status for Week 17 against the Bills is still in question. On the season, Gray only has one reception for 10 yards, so it would seem unlikely that he will be missed by fantasy owners.... See More ... See Less
Dolphins' MarQueis Gray: Dealing with hip injury
Gray suffered a hip injury during Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Gray did not return to the game after suffering the hip injury, and his availability for next week's game remains unknown. With Gray temporarily sidelined, look for A.J. Derby to fill in where needed.... See More ... See Less
