Inactive as expected

Shaheen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Shaheen was listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup after logging limited practices all week. He had commanded at least one target in each of the team's last seven games, with high marks of five and four targets. His next chance to take the field will be Week 15, as the Dolphins are on a bye in Week 14.

Unlikely to play Sunday

Shaheen (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Giants, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Shaheen was limited in practice all week, and it appears as though he'll be forced to miss a second straight game due to a knee injury. Cethan Carter could see a slight uptick in playing time as depth at tight end.

Back at practice Wednesday

Shaheen (knee) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Shaheen sat out Sunday's matchup with the Panthers due to the knee issue, but he was able to practice in a limited session Wednesday. He could have a chance to play this weekend against the Giants if he continues to make progress in his recovery.

Ruled out for Week 12

Shaheen (knee) has been declared out for Sunday's game against the Panthers, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Shaheen has been unable to practice all week because of the injury. Cethan Carter will likely see extra playing time as a result.

Sits out practice

Shaheen (knee) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice, Mike Masala of USA Today reports.

Analysis: Shaheen apparently picked up the injury during Sunday's win over the Jets. He'll likely need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday to have a chance of suiting up this weekend.

Nov 24, 2021 8:38 PM EST



Full practice Wednesday

Shaheen (knee) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reprots.

Analysis: Shaheen was inactive for Sunday's loss to the Jaguars due tot he knee injury, but it was apparently a minor issue given his quick return to full participation. The 27-year-old has two catches for 15 yards while operating as a depth tight end for Miami.

Inactive Sunday

Shaheen (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Jaguars in London.

Analysis: With Shaheen - who has caught two passes (on three targets) for 15 yards in four games this season -- unavailable Sunday, Cethan Carter and Hunter Long are on hand to provide the Dolphins with TE depth behind Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe in Week 6.

Oct 17, 2021 5:16 AM EST


Questionable against Jags

Shaheen (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Shaheen traveled with the team to London, so he has a chance to suit up, but the backup tight end's status will likely come down to a game-time decision. With Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe ahead of him on the depth chart, Shaheen's not expected to make a significant impact either way.

Oct 15, 2021 10:48 AM EST


Limited once again

Shaheen (knee) was limited in Thursday's practice, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Shaheen's reps have been limited at practice for the last two days as he continues to deal with a knee injury that he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers. While it appears as though he could play in the team's Week 6 matchup against the Jaguars, he's unlikely to be a significant fantasy contributor.

Practices in limited fashion

Shaheen (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Shaheen is considered day-to-day after suffering a knee injury during Week 5's loss to the Buccaneers. With only two catches for 15 yards in four appearances this season, he can safely be considered off the fantasy radar. However, if Shaheen misses time, Hunter Long and Cethan Carter could potentially see more reserve work.

Oct 13, 2021 12:26 PM EST


Considered day-to-day

Shaheen (knee) is considered day-to-day after exiting Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Shaheen hurt his knee in the second half of Sunday's matchup, and coach Brian Flores hasn't yet determined whether the tight end will be able to practice this week. If the 2017 second-rounder is unavailable for Sunday's Week 6 game against the Jaguars, Cethan Carter should see a slightly expanded role.

Oct 11, 2021 11:23 AM EST


Questionable to return

Shaheen (knee) is questionable to return Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Analysis: Shaheen picked up the injury in the second half and it remains to be seen if he'll be able to return to action Sunday. If he can't go back to the field, then Cethan Carter would be in line to see additional snaps.

Upgrades to full practice

Shaheen (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: After missing the Dolphins' Week 1 win over the Patriots while he was on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Shaheen rejoined the team for practice Wednesday, but his reps were capped on account of the knee injury. Shaheen seemingly erased any concern about his health by participating fully in Thursday's session, but he's not guaranteed to have a sizable role Week 2 against the Bills, given the existing competition at tight end. Mike Gesicki remains the Dolphins' top pass-catching threat at tight end, while Durham Smythe's combination of blocking and receiving skills allowed him to lead the position group in snap share (70 percent) in the opener.

Sep 16, 2021 12:44 PM EST


Limited in return to practice

Shaheen (knee) was limited at practice Wednesday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Shaheen was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, but he's evidently dealing with a knee issue ahead of Sunday's game against the Bills. Once available, Shaheen will bolster a Miami tight end corps that also features Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe.

Sep 15, 2021 1:06 PM EST


Off COVID list

Shaheen has been activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Shaheen is slated to practice Wednesday and should be available for Sunday's game against the Bills. It's possible that he could see some looks in two-TE sets this weekend, but with Mike Gesicki also in the mix, as well as wideouts DeVante Parker, Jaylen Waddle and Will fuller, steady volume figures to be hard to come by for Shaheen.

Sep 15, 2021 8:49 AM EST


Placed on COVID list

Shaheen has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Analysis: Per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Shaheen will be out at least 10 days under NFL-NFLPA protocols and thus won't be available for the Dolphins' regular season opener. Mike Gesicki, Durham Smythe, Hunter Long and Cethan Carter are in line to handle the team's Week 1 tight end duties.

Sep 6, 2021 7:16 AM EST


Dealing with multiple injuries

Shaheen has missed the last couple of practices with a hamstring and knee issue and will remain out for the preseason finale, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Shaheen's status for the regular season is uncertain at this point. The only good news for the Dolphins is that the MRI on his knee was negative, so it doesn't look like the injury is season ending. Shaheen is in place for a backup role in Miami's revamped offense. He caught 12 passes for a career-high 150 yards and three scores last season.

Aug 27, 2021 1:34 PM EST


Returns from COVID list

Shaheen (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

Analysis: Shaheen landed on the COVID list over the weekend as an apparent close contact, and he's since cleared the health and safety protocols. The 26-year-old will continue to compete for a roster spot now that he can practice.

Aug 5, 2021 2:42 PM EST


Placed on COVID list

Shaheen was placed on the COVID-19 list Sunday.

Analysis: Shaheen is an apparent close contact after co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach George Godsey tested positive for the virus, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. If the tight end continues to test negative for COVID-19, he could return after a relatively brief absence. However, any time away from the team could impact his ability to secure a spot on the 53-man roster in camp.

Aug 1, 2021 5:50 PM EST


Fighting for roster spot

Shaheen may need a strong showing in training camp to secure a roster spot following the selection of third-round Hunter Long in the 2021 NFL Draft, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Shaheen was already likely looking at a depth role behind Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe, and Long is essentially guaranteed to make the roster as a third-round pick. Shaheen appears to No. 4 on the depth chart if everyone stays healthy, and he'll be in competition with Cethan Carter in camp, who inked a three-year deal in March.
