DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jakeem Grant will be placed on injured reserve with a lower leg injury, ending his season.
Grant ranks second in the NFL in both kickoff returns and punt returns. He was hurt in the Dolphins' loss at Green Bay a week ago, and initially the team hoped he might return this year.
Grant ranks fourth on the Dolphins with 21 receptions, including a 52-yard touchdown. He also scored on a 102-yard kickoff return and a 71-yard punt return.
Miami lost another dynamic receiver, Albert Wilson, to a season-ending hip injury in Week 7.
