Dolphins' Ricardo Louis: Links up with Dolphins again
Louis signed a contract with the Dolphins on Saturday,Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Louis was waived by the Dolphins only two weeks ago, but with both Allen Hurns and Albert Wilson opting out of the season, the team was quickly left with little depth on its receiving corps. The 2016 fourth-round pick of the Browns hasn't played a snap with his new team despite spending the past two seasons with the Dolphins. A 2018 season-ending neck injury coupled with a 2019 season-ending knee injury effectively make Louis a long shot to make the roster to begin the upcoming campaign.... See More ... See Less

Dolphins' Ricardo Louis: Dealing with knee injury
Louis is dealing with a knee injury, not a neck injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.
There was speculation that Louis was still suffering from the neck injury that kept him sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign.

Dolphins' Ricardo Louis: Missing another season
Louis (neck) has been placed on injured reserve, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Lous spent the entire 2018 campaign on injured reserve with the Browns while recovering from a neck injury.

Dolphins' Ricardo Louis: Latches on with Miami
Louis (neck) signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 2016 fourth-round pick was released by Cleveland last week after missing the entire 2018 campaign with a neck injury. Louis previously played all 32 games his first two NFL seasons, catching 45 of 96 targets (47 percent) for 562 yards (5.9 YPT) without any touchdowns. The inefficient production suggests he'll have a tough time sticking around in the NFL, though terrible quarterback play in Cleveland undoubtedly was a major factor. Louis will compete with the likes of Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford for a spot at the bottom of Miami's wideout depth chart.... See More ... See Less
Ricardo Louis: Waived by Browns
The Browns waived Louis (neck) on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
A 2016 fourth-round pick, Louis made 12 starts in 32 games his first two NFL seasons, catching 45 of 96 targets (47 percent) for 562 yards (5.9 YPT) without any touchdowns. He then spent the entire 2018 campaign on injured reserve due to a neck injury, missing out on a chance to experience competent quarterback play for the first time in his pro career. Louis should find another opportunity to compete for a roster spot if he's able to gain medical clearance from the neck injury.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Ricardo Louis: Misses all of 2018
Louis (neck) spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve, Nick Shook of the Browns' official website reports.
Louis had neck surgery last summer and was never expected to play in 2018. It isn't clear if the 2016 fourth-round pick will be able to resume his football career, as the Browns haven't provided an update on his progress. If he does end up playing, Louis will face tough competition for a roster spot on a team that now has Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins atop the depth chart at wide receiver....

Browns' Ricardo Louis: Placed on IR
Louis (neck) was placed on IR on Thursday.

Browns' Ricardo Louis: Will miss 2018 with neck injury
Louis will miss the entire 2018 season while recovering from neck surgery, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Given the often career-threatening nature of neck injuries, it's unsurprising that the Browns quickly decided to rule Louis out for the next several months. Louis' role was likely to decline in 2018 with the addition of Jarvis Landry, but the injury now further dims his outlook with the Browns moving forward. He'll enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2019.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Ricardo Louis: Quiet end to season
Louis, who failed to make a catch on two targets during Cleveland's Week 17 loss to the Steelers, finishes the season with 27 receptions for 357 yards.
Louis set career highs in receptions (27), targets (61) and yards (357), but ended the season as the Browns' fourth wideout behind Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman and Rashard Higgins. He hauled in just one pass over the final six games of the season, and will most likely have to battle for a roster spot in 2018.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Ricardo Louis: Plays four snaps
Louis played just four offensive snaps and finished without a catch or target during Sunday's 27-21 overtime loss to Green Bay.
Josh Gordon and Rashard Higgins have jumped past Louis on the depth chart, so much so that the second-year pro out of Auburn is having a tough time finding the field. The 23-year-old has just one reception over his past three games, and Sunday marked his second straight game without a target. Coach Hue Jackson has been fluid with his wide receivers all year long, so there's still hope Louis gets involved again, but his involvement would be limited to the No. 3 wideout spot if that should happen....

Browns' Ricardo Louis: No targets in Week 13
Louis wasn't targeted in Sunday's 19-10 loss to the Chargers.
For the second straight week, Louis ended Sunday's contest without a reception, but unlike in Week 12, he wasn't targeted. He had already been losing out on snaps to Rashard Higgins, but now with Josh Gordon back in the mix, Louis had an even tougher time finding the field. The 23-year-old played just 12 snaps against the Chargers, which could be a trend for the remainder of the year.... See More ... See Less
Browns' Ricardo Louis: No catches in loss
Louis was held without a catch (two targets) during Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Bengals.
Louis has been the main victim of Corey Coleman's return from injured reserve. Since Coleman made his way back to the lineup, Louis has been able to haul in just a single catch on six targets. Not to mention the fact that Rashard Higgins also played more snaps than him for the second straight week, and with embattled receiver Josh Gordon set to make his season debut Sunday, Louis' production and field time should continue to fall dramatically....
