Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson is “on track” to be ready to play by Week 1 according to Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald.
“Every test they’ve wanted me to take I’ve been right on track so there’s no reason why I shouldn’t be out there Week 1,” Wilson added. “I’m 100, I’m ready to go in when they give me the OK.”
Originally an undrafted free agent out of Georgia State, the 26-year-old Wilson spent four years with the Kansas City Chiefs before signing a three-year, $24 million contract which included $14.45 million in guaranteed money to join the Dolphins last offseason.
He was on track for a career year, tallying 407 yards from scrimmage and four touchdowns on 34 touches, before suffering a serious hip injury in Week 7 and ending up on injured reserve. The injury did not require surgery but Wilson has not practiced since, missing the entire offseason program, and could start training camp on the PUP list.
But if Wilson has anything to say about it, he will be in uniform and on the field come September.
