Clear of suspension

Carroo is eligible to play after serving his four-game suspension, Alain Poupart of the Dolphins' official site reports.

Analysis: The Dolphins declined to tender Carroo a contract for 2019 and he ended up receiving the four-game ban in June. The 2016 third-round pick had 12 receptions for 192 yards and two touchdowns during his three seasons (37 games) in Miami.

Suspended for four weeks

Carroo was suspended Tuesday for the first four games of the regular season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Carroo has been a free agent since March, when the Dolphins elected to not tender him for the 2019 season. With this suspension, Carroo likely won't be able to find a home in the league until after Week 4.

Becomes free agent

The Dolphins will not extend a tender to Carroo, making him an unrestricted free agent, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The Dolphins elect to move on from Carroo, who posted two receptions for 94 yards and one touchdown over nine games last season. The 2016 third-round pick never lived up to his big-play potential in Miami, despite occasional flashes, and will work to revitalize his career elsewhere in the league. In his three-year career, Carroo has made 12 catches for 192 yards and one touchdown across 37 games.

Catchless in season finale

Carroo did not bring in his only target during Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Bills. He ends the season with two receptions for 94 yards and a touchdown, and one carry for 14 yards.

Analysis: Carroo played only one offensive snap during Miami's season finale. The former 2016 third-round pick did not make the Dolphins' active roster until Week 8 of the regular season, and logged the majority of his snaps on special teams during the nine games he was active despite his deep-threat speed. Any hope for future production from Carroo hinges upon him earning the favor of the Dolphins' new coaching staff, which will require him to impress during offseason workouts.

Limited to special teams

Carroo didn't play any snaps on offense in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bills

Analysis: There was no reward for his 74-yard touchdown the previous week, with Carroo limited to 17 snaps on special teams. There isn't much home for future production after the 2016 third-round pick was buried behind the likes of Brice Butler and Isaiah Ford on Sunday. It's even possible Carroo could lose his roster spot if Danny Amendola (knee) returns in the coming weeks.

Catches long touchdown pass

Carroo caught one of two targets for a 74-yard touchdown during Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Carroo made the most of his only grab, jumping over a defender to snare a deep ball before coasting into the end zone. He made his first catch of the season in Week 10, and while this splashy play certainly catches the eye, it's a bit premature to consider him as a fantasy option. Carroo will look to build on this effort next Sunday against a tough Bills defense.

Records first catch of 2018

Carroo brought in his only target for 20 yards and rushed once for 14 yards during Sunday's 31-12 loss to the Packers.

Analysis: Carroo received his first offensive snaps (16) of the 2018 season Week 10. With Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve, Carroo appears to have successfully carved out a niche role in Miami's passing attack. While it's unlikely that Carroo will achieve fantasy relevance this season, the former third-round pick's usage is worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.

Joins active roster

Carroo has been elevated from the Dolphins' practice squad to the team's active roster, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: He'll bolster the team's wideout depth with Albert Wilson now on IR, but for now Carroo is behind Danny Amendola, DeVante Parker and Jakeem Grant on the team's depth chart. If the Dolphins end up parting ways with Parker before the trade deadline, Carroo could move up a peg, but for now he's off the fantasy radar.

Added to Dolphins' practice squad

Carroo signed a contract to join the Dolphins' practice squad, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Leonte Carroo experiment continues in Miami after the Rutgers product went unclaimed on waivers over the weekend.

Sep 3, 2018 10:50 AM EST

Released by Dolphins

Carroo was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: A 2016 third-round pick, Carroo caught 10 passes in 28 regular-season games for the Dolphins. He always seemed unlikely to stick around for another season on a Miami roster with impressive depth at wide receiver.

Disappoints in preseason finale

Carroo caught three of eight targets for 34 yards during Thursday's preseason finale against the Falcons.

Analysis: Carroo drew the start at wide receiver but didn't make much of a case to survive Saturday's roster cuts. This is nothing new for the Louisville product who the Dolphins traded up to select in the third round of the 2016 draft, though. However, Carroo at least showed to be passed the groin injury that prevented him from playing in last week's exhibition against the Ravens.

Could be cut by Thursday

Carroo (groin) is in serious jeopardy of being cut, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Carroo's chances of making the team appear to be riding on his availability for the preseason finale Thursday. While a groin injury has limited Carroo's ability to showcase his talents, the Dolphins feel comfortable with who's currently listed ahead of Carroo on the depth chart. As of now, it seems Carroo would need a strong performance in Thursday's contest followed by a little bit of luck if he plans on sticking around in Miami.

Sits out Saturday's game

Carroo (groin) was held out of Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Barry Jackson of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Carroo's absence from Saturday's game was no surprise after it was reported he'd miss several days with his groin injury. His exact return date isn't clear, but each day he misses will hurt his chances at securing a depth receiver role on the final roster.

Aug 26, 2018 8:52 AM EST

Out several days with groin injury

Head coach Adam Gase reportedly said that Carroo (groin) will sidelined "a couple of days," Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Carroo did not practice Thursday and it now seems like he'll miss the Dolphins' dress rehearsal game Saturday against the Ravens. The nature of groin injuries and mapping out progress projections can be tricky. For Carroo's sake, each absence will work against him when it's time for crucial roster cut downs.

Aug 23, 2018 9:51 AM EST

Watches from sidelines Thursday

Carroo (groin) didn't participate in Thursday's practice, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: It appears Carroo suffered this injury during Wednesday's practice, and his status for Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens is unclear. The 2016 third-round pick has caught 10 passes on 20 targets for 98 yards and one touchdowns over his first two seasons. He's battling for a depth wideout role.
