Current Miami Dolphins wide receiver Will Fuller missed the season opener win over the New England Patriots last Sunday while serving a suspension due to an alleged violation of the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy.
Now it is unclear if he will ever dress for the club.
According to Myles simmons From Pro Football Talk, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores confirmed Friday that Fuller will not play in Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills due to unspecified personal matter. Fuller was absent from practice Thursday for the same reason.
“I’ve had several conversations with him over the past few days. He’s definitely dealing with a personal problem,” Flores explained. “We support Will and we will take him day by day.”
Also, Flores did not say whether he expects Fuller to return at some point during the season.
“Things come up in our lives. That’s what he’s dealing with right now,” Flores continued. “He has our support. He has my support. And is it a surprise? Things happen. They happen and they are not part of his normal day to day – yes, it is a surprise from that point of view. But, we take care of that. .. “deal with it and we will support you. Just make our adjustments as a team, play without him and move on. ”
Fuller put pen to paper on a one-year, $ 10 million deal with the Dolphins in March after he scored 53 receptions for 879 yards and eight touchdowns in 11 games with the Houston Texans last season before being suspended. Houston used a first-round pick to acquire Fuller in 2016, and spent the previous five seasons with that organization.
