Miami Dolphins running back Jeff Wilson Jr has been placed on IR to start the 2023 season meaning he will miss at least the first four games. It was a surprise to most fans because Wilson was thought to be almost available for the last pre-season game.

Wilson gained 392 yards on 84 carries at an average of 4.7 yards in his first season in Miami. He added 3 touchdowns.


In a slightly odd way of phrasing the Jeff Wilson situation, Head Coach Mike McDaniel said “It’s a midsection injury compounded by some finger issues. We made the assessment he couldn’t protect himself and couldn’t be himself the way we know him to be. I wouldn’t be surprised if he would make a return this season. We will let his body tell us.”

This is the first hint that the Wilson injury could be longer term as the idea of whether he will return seems to be a potential escalation.

The Dolphins carried six running backs onto their initial 53-man roster and that decision is explained a little more by the loss of Wilson. There are question marks over whether Raheem Mostert, the Dolphins leading rusher in 2022, will be ready for opening week. If Mostert is unavailable the Dolphins will feature Salvon Ahmed along with rookies De’Von Achane and Chris Brooks.
