Grant hauled in a deep ball from QB Tua Tagovailoa at June minicamp.
Analysis: Grant appears to have returned healthy for Miami's offseason program after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 16 last year. He's missed multiple games in three straight seasons, and he'll now face a tougher path to earning snaps on offense, with the Dolphins adding Will Fuller and No. 6 overall pick Jaylen Waddle to a receiving corps that also includes Grant, DeVante Parker, Preston Williams (foot), Albert Wilson and Lynn Bowden. The Dolphins can clear up around $4 million in cap space if they trade or release Grant, but his value on special teams (five career returns TDs) should keep him on track for a roster spot, even if he's buried on the depth chart at WR.

Grant (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills.
Analysis: After suffering a high-ankle sprain in last week's win over the Raiders, Grant never looked like a strong bet to suit up for the regular-season finale, but he at least made it a tough decision for the Dolphins to make him inactive by turning in limited practices Thursday and Friday. Ultimately, Grant didn't demonstrate enough progress to get the green light from the training staff, but the Dolphins will hope to have him back for a potential wild-card game next weekend, should Miami earns its way into the postseason. Grant concludes the regular season with 36 receptions for 373 yards and a touchdown over his 14 appearances.

Grant (ankle) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.
Analysis: As is DeVante Parker (hamstring), with the pass-catching duo's Week 17 status to be clarified prior to the first set of games Sunday, with Miami kicking off at 1:00 ET. Per Schad, during the open portion of practice, Parker "looked to be running well, " while Grant "was not moving as well." Mack Hollins, Isaiah Fordand Lynn Bowden would be candidates for added snaps this weekend if either Grant or Parker are unavailable.
Jan 1, 2021 10:22 AM EST
Grant (ankle) logged a limited practice Thursday, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Analysis: Previous reports suggested that Grant's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Bills aren't great, but his return to a limited practice suggests that he has at least some chance to play this weekend. Friday's injury report will reveal whether that's a possibility.
Dec 31, 2020 12:49 PM EST
Grant (ankle) is participating in Thursday's practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Grant missed Wednesday's session due to his high-ankle sprain, so it would represent tangible progress if he's even to handle even limited reps Thursday. The slot man still appears to be trending in the wrong direction for Sunday's game against the Bills, but the Dolphins haven't ruled him out.
Dec 31, 2020 10:05 AM EST
Grant (ankle) is not participating in Wednesday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Grant is reportedly nursing a high-ankle sprain, the severity of which could necessitate his placement on IR. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network has stated that Grant will miss the regular-season finale against Buffalo, though the Dolphins haven't yet given an official word on his injury status.
Dec 30, 2020 10:11 AM EST
Grant sustained a high-ankle sprain during last weekend's 26-25 win over the Raiders and is expected to miss Week 17, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: The timing of Grant's injury is inopportune for the Dolphins, as with DeVante Parker (hamstring) coming off back-to-back absences and Preston Williams (foot) still on IR, the team could be without its top three wideouts heading into a must-win Week 17 road game against the Bills. Rapoport called Grant a candidate for IR and said that he'll miss Week 17, but the Dolphins haven't yet officially ruled the 28-year-old return man out.
Dec 28, 2020 8:09 AM EST
Grant is questionable to return to Saturday's game against the Raiders with an ankle injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: The 28-year-old had five catches for 43 yards to lead Miami's pass catchers before going down with the injury during the third quarter. Isaiah Ford and Mack Collins could see increased snaps if Grant is unable to retake the field Saturday.
Dec 26, 2020 7:18 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) is active for Saturday's game at Las Vegas.
Analysis: The Dolphins waited until the last second to make a decision on Grant, DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder). Both Grant and Gesicki are available to the offense, but Parker will miss a second consecutive contest. As a result, a few more targets may be freed up for Grant as Miami faces an exploitable Raiders defense.
Dec 26, 2020 4:00 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday night's game against the Raiders.
Analysis: As is wideout DeVante Parker (hamstring) and tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder), while the trio's Week 16 status may not be clarified until game time in advance of Saturday night's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff. If Grant and/or Parker are out again this weekend, Lynn Bowden, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford would be next in line for added Week 16 wide receiver duty for Miami.
Dec 24, 2020 2:30 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.
Analysis: Grant, DeVante Parker (hamstring) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) are all practicing on a limited basis, and each member of the trio missed last weekend's win over the Patriots despite practicing in the same capacity leading up to that contest. Grant, like Parker and Gesicki, will likely have to upgrade to full reps Thursday in order to avoid an injury designation for Week 16.
Dec 23, 2020 1:01 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) was listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's practice report, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.
Analysis: Along with Grant, tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) and DeVante Parker (hamstring) were deemed limited participants to begin Week 16 after all three pass catchers sat out Sunday's win over the Patriots. In order to avoid taking a designation into this weekend's game in Las Vegas, Grant will likely need to turn in a full practice Wednesday or Thursday.
Dec 22, 2020 1:30 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Patriots.
Analysis: Meanwhile, top wideout DeVante Parker (hamstring) is also inactive, so the stage is set for the likes of Lynn Bowden and Mack Hollins to see added opportunities in the Dolphins' passing game versus New England.
Dec 20, 2020 8:38 AM EST
Grant (hamstring) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: It's worth noting that the Dolphins elevated Isaiah Ford from their practice squad in advance of Sunday's game, a move that gives the team added wide receiver depth if Grant is indeed made inactive for the team's 1:00 ET kickoff. On the plus side for Miami's offense, DeVante Parker (hamstring) "is hopeful he can play" versus New England, per Pelissero.
Dec 20, 2020 4:37 AM EST
The Dolphins are listing Grant (hamstring) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Patriots, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Grant will carry a designation into the Week 15 matchup after the hamstring injury rendered him a limited participant in practice Wednesday through Friday. He'll be one of three key Dolphins pass catchers entering Sunday's game in shaky health, as wideout DeVante Parker (hamstring) and tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) are also listed as questionable.
Dec 18, 2020 10:25 AM EST
Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Thursday's walk-through practice, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Grant will have one more opportunity to upgrade his practice activity before Sunday's game against the Patriots, but as things currently stand it looks like he has at least a chance of suiting up. Friday's final injury report of the week will provide more clarity on Grant's status.
Dec 17, 2020 2:02 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Grant can't yet be considered a lock for Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it's encouraging to see that he's able to practice in some capacity. DeVante Parker (hamstring) was also limited Wednesday, though top tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) appears set to miss time.
Dec 16, 2020 1:50 PM EST
Grant (hamstring) is considered week-to-week, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Analysis: Grant was forced out of Sunday's narrow loss to the Chiefs early, and it looks like he isn't a lock to return against the Patriots in Week 15. With DeVante Parker (leg) and Mike Gesicki (shoulder) both also having been forced out Sunday, and Preston Williams (foot) already on IR, the Dolphins' pass catching corps can scarce afford more attrition.
Dec 14, 2020 11:00 AM EST
Grant (leg) was spotted without his helmet on the sidelines during Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Grant left early in the third quarter but returned after missing only a few plays. However, it appears the fifth-year receiver can't play through this injury. DaVante Parker (leg) and tight end Mike Gesicki (shoulder) both exited the game with injuries as well.
Dec 13, 2020 12:54 PM EST
Grant (leg) returned to Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Grant missed just a couple of plays after hurting his leg in the third quarter. With DaVante Parker (leg) still sidelined, Grant could see an uptick in targets as the de facto No. 1 receiver.
