Ricardo Louis: Returns to practice field

Louis (undisclosed) caught a pass from Tua Tagovailoa during team drills Friday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Louis sustained an injury Tuesday but didn't take long to recover. He'll need a strong end to training camp to secure a roster spot considering he's already been cut by the Dolphins once in July.

Ricardo Louis: Leaves practice early

Louis made an early exit from Tuesday's practice due to an apparent injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports.

Ricardo Louis: Links up with Dolphins again

Louis signed a contract with the Dolphins on Saturday,Ian Rapoport of NFL Networkreports.

Analysis: 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 longshot to make the roster to begin the upcoming campaign.

Ricardo Louis: Released by Dolphins

Louis was released by the Dolphins on Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Louis inked a one-year deal with the Dolphins in February after missing the entire 2019 with a knee injury. However, he'll now search for a new team ahead of training camp. The 26-year-old last took the field in 2017, when he had 27 receptions for 357 yards and no touchdowns.

Ricardo Louis: Remaining in Miami

Louis (knee) re-signed to a one-year with the Dolphins on Tuesday, Adam H. Beasley and Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: The veteran missed the entire 2019 season after blowing out his knee in the spring. He will now get an opportunity to compete for a spot in a crowded wide receiver room after the Dolphins signed extensions to DeVante Parker, Jakeem Grant and Allen Hurns last fall. Look for more updates on Louis' status when the team reconvenes for offseason workouts this spring.

Ricardo Louis: Starts season on IR

Louis (knee) is set to spend the 2019 season on injured reserve.

Ricardo Louis: Dealing with knee injury

Louis is dealing with a knee injury, not a neck injury, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: There was speculation that Louis was still suffering from the neck injury that kept him sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign. Regardless, the Auburn product is ineligible to return for the 2019 season after not being able to get medical clearance from the Dolphins due to this possibly career-threatening injury.

Ricardo Louis: Missing another season

Louis (neck) has been placed on injured reserve, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Lous spent the entire 2018 campaign on injured reserve with the Browns while recovering from a neck injury. He then signed with Miami in April, but it turns out he wasn't able to get medical clearance from the team. The 2016 fourth-round pick seems to be dealing with a career-threatening injury.

Ricardo Louis: Latches on with Miami

Louis (neck) signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: 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.

Ricardo Louis: Waived by Browns

The Browns waived Louis (neck) on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: 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.

Ricardo Louis: Misses all of 2018

Louis (neck) spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve, Nick Shook of the Browns' official website reports.

Analysis: 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, but if so, he'll 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.
